Halfway through the year, this is what we’ve got:
Cavalcade – Sonic Euthanasia. A sludgy masterpiece from our favorite experimental metal friends.
The Plurals – Mumblebee. Volume one of GTG noisy-poppy-ceiling-punchers’ “BEES” album series!
Robot (Re)pair – End Transmissions. Wry, catchy, spicy garagey pop-punk from our lovely Arizonan artificial “intelligent” pals.
Jeremy Porter – 1987. The best Detroit powerpopper in the land gets his acoustic side out there for all to bask in.
For The Record Showcase Volume 1. Both a celebration of Sleeping Timmy & Ryne Clarke’s radio show and a new compilation with tons of new and previously unreleased music from Michigan and beyond.
Plenty more to come in the second half of 2019!

5 new songs from The Plurals, the first of a series of EPs that will form their next album, BEES. Buzz buzz buzz!
The Plurals are releasing a new EP TOMORROW May 4th at The Robin Theatre in Lansing. This show is all ages and local friends and favorites Flatfoot are opening the show. There’s a track premier at The Bad Copy, a blurb at the City Pulse, and an interview with the Palm Reader that go into greater detail but basically, this is some new Plurals stuff and it’s gonna be our last show for a bit but we’ll have another EP out later this summer. Holy smokes!
