Twin Peaks Commemorate One Year Sweet ’17 Anniversary With Colored Pressings

Hard to believe, but it’s almost been a full year since the release of Sweet ’17 Singles, the 12″ compilation of every pair of bangers Twin Peaks released throughout the back half of 2017. To celebrate, we went and pressed the thing on colored vinyl. There are two gorgeous options – one on opaque white via our friends in Chicago at Shuga Records, and one in transparent swimming pool blue which you can snag in our shop or direct from the Peaks boys themselves. Both versions are out February 8th!

Bedstudy share new single “12”

Bedstudy return today with a new single and music video. “12,″ and its accompanying Tess Lafia-directed clip, was premiered this afternoon over on The405. “The video, which couples gorgeous cinematography with lush animation, is the perfect complement to the melancholic funk of Bedstudy,” says The405. “The group’s eclectic sound, mixing R&B, pulsing synth-pop and even a dash of indie pop, makes for listening that is equal parts relaxing and cathartic. The expressive vocals of Peter Baldwin play brilliantly off the drums of Ranson Vorpahl and the production of David Plakon.”

The song comes from a forthcoming EP, dot wave, which we’re very excited to be releasing in February of next year. There’s an Elsewhere gig to celebrate on 2/8, with tickets available oh so soon.

Haulm share new single “Loss”

Haulm are back with a brand new single, “Loss.” Premiered yesterday over on Indiecurrent, the track builds on the sonics of last year’s Stay For Me EP, injecting a slick propulsion to the otherwise hazy and smoke-filled proceedings. The single is the first from an EP the band will release next year. More details there soon.

In the meantime, they’re following up the sold out run alongside HONNE with dates in support of Zimmer. Tickets in the tour section.

Hippo Campus new album “Bambi” out today

Today marks the digital release of Hippo Campus’ new album, BAMBI. You can stream it right now. Everywhere and anywhere. This thing is a stunner, top to bottom. Prepare.

BAMBI will be available physically on November 23rd, and you can pre-order your copy over in the shop now, or get a tote bag with pre-orders at indie record shops, OR(!) if you’re in Minneapolis, get an exclusive pre-order that also grants entry to a week of release in-store at Electric Fetus. It’s always good to have options.

The band will be hitting the road in support of the album next week. Yes, that soon. Tickets are available over in the tour section. They’re going fast.

Pre-order Hippo Campus “Bambi” vinyl bundle

Hippo Campus’ new album BAMBI will be released physically on November 23rd! The first 2,000 copies of the LP will be printed on 180g “Midwinter” blue vinyl. You can pre-order yours over in our shop, on Amazon, or as part of a bundle (including lyric book and pin set!) on Hippo Campus’ website now.

But it doesn’t end there. It’s important to us to give back to the stores who’ve supported Grand Jury and Hippo Campus since the start, so we want to make every copy special in some way.

With that in mind, we’re also pressing 1,000 copies on 180 gram “Blossom” Pink vinyl for indie record shops throughout the US and Canada, and another 1,000 copies on 180 gram “Burnt Room” marbled vinyl exclusively for Minneapolis’ Electric Fetus. Fetus is also hosting a private in-store performance from the band on November 21st – two days before the album is out. The first 300 people to pre-order the exclusive will get access to the in-store, where they’ll be able to pick up their exclusive LP and a limited edition Hippo Campus tote. More details here.

But I don’t live in Minneapolis, you say! Where’s my tote? Well, it’ll be at your local record store, too.  Starting September 28th, when you pre-order BAMBI at participating stores, you can pick up your tote, then come back for your record on November 23rd. Find your nearest record store here, and make sure they’ll be carrying a copy for you.

And last, but certainly not least, we’re making a deluxe edition LP on 180 gram “Golden” yellow and black marbled vinyl, packaged in a printed polybag and featuring a 24×36 fold-out poster. This version will be available in limited quantities at record stores and on the road with the band later this year. More there soon!

Once these colors run out, we won’t be pressing more. So don’t sleep.
