Exclusive Unreleased Tracks from Brainiac To Be Released in January 2023

LIMITED EDITION SILVER VINYL
3000 COPIES WORLDWIDE
PREORDER HERE

In recent years, there has been a resurgence of interest in the incomparable 90's band known as Brainiac. This is in part due to a 2019 full feature documentary about the band (Transmissions After Zero) plus the reemergence of surviving band members to celebrate their music in the last several years. In addition, a substantial pair of archival releases (Attic Tapes 2xLP, From Dayton Ohio 2xLP) were unearthed for release on Record Store Day 2021 by Touch and Go Records.

Now, in 2023, comes the latest missive of the archive, harkening back to the band's latter era - and their most prolific and confident period. The Predator Nominate EP is a celebration of what was to come before the tragic exit of ringleader/singer Timmy Taylor. Listen to these realized demos and imagine what only could have been the confident seed of what the group might be capable of in this future century versus the last one. The world will never truly know.

The Sonora Pine II Remastered for 25th Anniversary

Originally released by Quarterstick Records in 1997, The Sonora Pine's final album II has been remastered for its 25th anniversary and is now available in LP format on limited edition teal or black vinyl as a co-release with Husky Pants Records!

The Sonora Pine, working as a trio, are hard, careful workers, gently and deliberately placing each piece of each song. Tara Jane O'Neil and Kevin Coultas bring a gravity and trust developed through their years of collaboration in Rodan. Samara Lubelski works in long sweeps, evading O'Neil's pointed tonal language. Lubelski can slow time through her slurred notes and she can lash a song into breathless urgency. Together, the three weave with a vision and a grace that is forceful, earnest, handsome, and giving. At times the members of Sonora Pine clear space for each other, holding steadily, patiently-a charged conversation. At times they seem to lean heavily against each other, overworked travelers at dusk, an aching tenacity pushing them along. They are always listening. And even at the furthest edges of weariness, they are always daring.
