Video Rewind: White Mice By Mo-Dettes

I'm surprised this video had 20,000 plays w/o me being aware of it. Mo-Dettes' (pronouncd MOE, not mod) LP is one of my favorites of all time. 'White Mice' is like one of the best songs on it, although it's perfect all the way through. Anyway, this is my jam. Thank you to my good friend Lil' Duenas for bringing this to my attention.

Last Of The Ye Olde Maids LPs


Speaking of Cold Cave and Art Fag Recordings, there are about 30 LPs of the Ye Olde Maids record left, and you can buy them at artfagrecordings.com. It was limited to 500 so here's your last chance!!

Cold Cave 'Life Magazine' Video

Everybody's favorite song from Cold Cave's Love Comes Close LP just got a video. Matador just premiered this weirdo gem for 'Life Magazine. It's directed by Ben Chappell and Aaron Brown of Focus Creeps. Evidently 'Life Magazine' is going to be released as a single soon and you can read all about it and their crazy amount of new dates announced on the Matador site.

For the record, my favorite song from LCC is 'Youth And Lust', but it's pretty much a perfect record anyways so who cares.

Art Fag Recordings Mailing List

2009 was a great year for us here at Art Fag Recordings. Three records we're really proud of, Ye Olde Maids LP, the 4 way split 7" and of course Best Coast's debut 7" all came out and to a great response. Admittedly, things at times got disorganized and we found it tough to to keep up and communicate properly. A lot has been worked out in order to organize better and things should be running far smoother this year. One thing we have now is a mailing list. Mailing list members will receive updates on all releases as they come in. When we have a new record ready, a repress ready, or when things are about to sell out an email will be sent. Mailing list members will always get first dibs on records one to two weeks before shops, regular mail order and distribution. To become part of the Art Fag Recordings mailing list please write to artfagrecordings@gmail.com and write MAILING LIST in the subject line. You'll be added and on your way to a far more enjoyable life. 2010!

Vivian Girls + Best Coast + Dunes + San Diego = FUN


What in the HELL is up with this night, right? It's perfect and fun and it's in San Diego Feb 4. Vivian Girls is one of the best groops of the last couple years, every record/song they've put out has been tops. My love for Best Coast goes w/o saying. A big part of Art Fag Recordings' wild and fun 2009, Best Coast always knocks everyone's socks clear off. Dunes is (along with Pearl Harbor) the most happening new shit in Los Angeles. Art Fag is releasing a 7" in 2010 and we're kinda ecstatic. Between groops you'll be listening to punk rippers and oldies magic. $10. You can get tix here, and maybe you should cuz you never know...
