Heavy Hawaii Post New Song 'Sleeping Bag'


Heavy Hawaii, the former Fantastic Magic members, have put up a new song on their Myspace thing. Sleeping Bag. It's fucking good, and it's fucking WEIRD. Expect more uncomfortably odd, catchy gems from these San Diego freakazoids. And by the way these are good eggs, Matt and Sundar. Real top dogs. Buy 'em a cold one, they're good for it.

Preorder PENS' Debut LP


You can now preorder what is sure to be one of the best records of the year. PENS' debut lp, "Hey Friend, What You Doing" on De Stijl Records. The record comes out on September 14. I've been waiting on this lp forever and I'm psyched. 'High In The Cinema' is one of my longstanding favorite songs since I heard it last year, and I'm sure it will be yours too. I should be.. Ok go preorder!

And then obviously don't forget they arrive on our coast in 7 days to start the big Art Fag recordings West Coast tour w/ Crocodiles and Graffiti Island. Find the dates posted somewheres on this here blog or elsewhere on the internets.
