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!

Since mid-2018 Timmy Rodriguez AKA Sleeping Timmy has been co-hosting For The Record
, a live weekly radio show on Sundays from Noon-3PM on WRWW 92.3 FM in mid-Michigan, a station which can be streamed worldwide here
. Shows are posted for streaming the following day on the For The Record mixcloud
. Episodes typically feature a guest musician, a featured classic album, and a wide variety of music played directly from a real-life record turntable live on the air. Timmy’s usual co-host, Ryne Clark, is out of town so this week Tommy Plural AKA me will be the co-host so we’re billing it as a GTG Takeover. I’m sure we’ll really get to the heart of the matter, whatever that may be, but, uh… Timmy and I have been friends and collaborators for over 15 years so we definitely have stuff to talk about and we both get way too excited about music so that’s something to listen for and snicker at. Timmy and Ryne host this show every week and they have a great set of upcoming featured guests, including GTG stalwart Blaine and His Keyboard on 2/24 and our old pals in When Particles Collide on 3/10. Tune in tomorrow at noon, and every Sunday after! Radio!
