There may never be anything funnier to me than this is right now
July is a busy time for us, everyone. We have three albums coming out this month! I will detail them now for you, on tumblr:
- To feel the crushing sonic weight of everything and nothing all at once, please try My Fictions' Stranger Songs.
- For the euphoria of a perfect summer day, but also realizing life is pointless and we’re all alone in the vastness of space and time, try Field Mouse's Hold Still Life.
- To show up sixteen years late to a party you helped start and then totally Fonzi the shit out of it, try Braid's No Coast.
Sounds about right
The Rentals - Sweetness and Tenderness
Report to R.S.B.
Peace did not come into my life.
My life escaped
and peace was there.
Often I bump into my life,
trying to catch its breath,
pay a bill,
or tolerate the news,
tripping as usual
over the cables
of someone’s beauty -
My little life:
so devoted to its obscure purposes -
And, I hasten to report,
doing fine without me.
We’ve had an ill-timed and expensive breakdown in Nevada en route to finish our summer tour dates with Tigers Jaw. We’ll be leaving the van in Nevada for repairs and pushing on in a rental to play the SF, LA and San Diego dates.
Unfortunately, the cost of the van repairs and the rental is going to wipe out all of our funds. To help raise some money, we’ve decided to reprint our Dogwalk crewnecks in a different color way.
Orders will determine the quantity we end up printing and these will not be reprinted in this color way again.
Thanks for any and all support—it really makes a huge difference.
