Test presses have all been approved and these summer jamz will be on sale VERY VERY soon...
TIM013 - Hex Dispensers "One Less Ghost" b/w "I'm a Ghost"
Who else could fill the coveted release number 13 spot but the beloved Hex Dispensers? This ghoulish garage gang of musical maniacs switch it up this time around on this "ghost themed" single & offer up, of all things - a BALLAD?!?! "One Less Ghost" brings the soft & the loud in an exciting ode to one's fears & anxieties, and marks a great leap forward for the band's sound! For those of you screaming "They've gone soft!" - fear not - these bat-winged behemoths haven't lost their edge! The B-side "I'm A Ghost" rips & roars thru a cover of fellow Texans (and fellow gore-hounds) Occult Detective Club! As per usual, the first press of this single comes on randomly mixed colored vinyl, includes a download code, & is housed in the Trouble In Mind factory sleeve!
TIM014 - Night Beats "H-Bomb EP"
Night Beats currently hail from Seattle but as two of the three members are originally from Texas, it's not hard to pick out the influence of golden age TX psych idols such as the 13th Floor Elevators and Golden Dawn. This 4 song EP will melt your brain with it's mixture of druggy backbeats and blazing guitar work peppered with vocals that channel a screeching, howling Marc Bolan. They are fresh off of a slot at the Austin Psych Fest and we think you're going to be hearing a lot from these guys. As per usual, the first press of this single comes on randomly mixed colored vinyl, includes a download code, & is housed in the Trouble In Mind factory sleeve!
TIM015 - Sticks N Stones "Is It You?" b/w "Telling The Truth"
This follow up to their debut single on Dusty Medical picks up where that hot slab o' wax leaves off - hitting you square in the gut with two stabs of sharp pop perfection! A veritable Milwaukee "super-group' of sorts featuring Paul Kalfahs and Jon Heibler from Catholic Boys, & Natalie Clark from the Tears (and all three from the Tuff Bananas!), Sticks N Stones keeps it lean & mean, slicing off riffs from 70's & 80's Power Pop (and a nick or two from classic 60's bubblegum) with rapid-fire intensity calling to mind such great Midwestern bands as Cheap Trick, Shoes, & the Kind. "Is It You" is a spastic spark of self-examination & "Telling The Truth" is a pounding plea for the listener's trust - it ain't no lie!
The single comes housed in the Trouble In Mind factory sleeve, & first press comes on randomly mixed colored vinyl, & includes a download code!
TIM016 - Tropical Sleep "(Hadita) Girl With A Diamond Tooth" b/w "Bury My Body"
Don't know what you were doing in the summer of '08 but we were listening to The Pets LP 'Misdirection' on repeat, so it's very exciting for us to release the debut single from Dan Wood of The Pets' new band "Tropical Sleep." Tropical Sleep starts where the Pets left off - the same great vocal delivery and guitar work, but coaxes out a little more finesse & lotsa extra pop! "(Hadita) Girl With A Diamond Tooth" is a stomping serenade to an orally bejewelled siren, while "Bury My Body" is a more laid-back love letter to someone close! As per usual, the first press of this single comes on randomly mixed colored vinyl, includes a download code, & is housed in the Trouble In Mind factory sleeve!
