Small Parks EP OUT NOW!


Bam! Another solid entry from Small Parks and for the ol GTG gang (is that redundant like ATM Machine?) in 2019. 3 new songs (one of which was previewed way back on GTG100) recorded this fall and produced by Nick Diener. Get ready to shout along. It’s great to have these fine folks back!

No Skull s/t OUT NOW!

A co-release with Madlantis Records, here’s the debut from No Skull! Ex-Red Teeth! This 5 song EP “unmistakably harkens back to [the] golden alternative-rock era” according to this piece from City Pulse. And we agree! Stream it from us or buy it from Madlantis!

2019 – So Far

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!

For The Record Showcase Vol 1 OUT NOW


Out now! A new compilation showcasing the artists that have appeared on Sleeping Timmy and Ryne Clarke’s For The Record Radio Show in the last year. 20 songs, including new music by Blaine and His Keyboard, The Hat Madder, Sleeping Timmy, and Tommy Plural, plus tracks from old friends Elroy Meltzer, Bet On Rats, When Particles Collide, The Quirk, The Sailor Kicks, The Ryne Experience, and more!
