They used to be Colossal Rex. Now they’re Colossal Wrecks. They didn’t used to have an LP. Now they do. It’s called Waste the Moments. I’ve heard some stuff from the band before, and it was good, but this album is better. Definite progression. I could see this one sneaking its way onto some end-of-the-year lists.
Aaron / Lauren Records has something new out today! Check it out.

I recorded a new DAD PUNCHERS 7” and my dear friend and bandmate Jeremy Bolm is putting it out on his label SECRET VOICE. You can hear a new song above.
DAD PUNCHERS “These Times Weren’t Made For You” 7”EP/Digital
“It always feels a little unjust to grasp a listener’s attention based on an artist’s current or previous work, but the forthcoming EP 7” These Times Weren’t Made For You will put an end to Elliot Babin’s go-to connection as the drummer of Touche Amore, as it has the power to make Dad Punchers a household name. This EP marks the second release for Elliot; the Dad Punchers S/T LP opened eyes last year and gave him the platform that he has earned today, writing deeply personal and often charming songs about the struggles of young adulthood that anyone can relate to. This EP was recorded by Elliot himself in his time home from tour. Using his Father’s living room and his growing knowledge of recording technique, he managed to produce an enjoyable listening experience while once again playing nearly every instrument. Taking cues from The Beach Boys,The Weakerthans, and a range of No Idea Records alumni, Dad Punchers is a look into who Elliot Babin really is as a musician, songwriter, and human being.
I couldn’t be more proud to call this SV05”

This month I got a new record in the distro that I’m very excited about. It’s the self titled debut from the Exquisites. This is a band fronted by Jason Clackley (MMR003: ‘To the Few and Far Between’ ) Jason’s first album was one of the first few releases that were the catalyst for Mountain Man to become an entity that shared music with the world. I’m very excited to see where Jason has gone musically, his new album is perfect from start to finish. You can hear the track ‘Selfish Feelings’ here.
I’m happy to report all the vinyl in this month’s distro update is pressed on color. I picked up all of these releases when on tour with Dad Punchers last week. Good times were had by all. Glad I got to spend an extended amount of time with the dudes in Wild Moth, they’re great people and musicians.
Postage Rates As of January 27th 2013 postage rates through the USPS are going up, I’ve updated my shipping prices in the store and it’s going to end up costing the customer more and for that I apologize, but I don’t really have another option. US customers won’t be affected as much as Canada / Overseas. I need European distribution, someone help me out!
