Pswingset in Kyoto!
Very, very rarely, we will part with a few of these, but they aren’t for general sale, sorry. The store allows you to select which specific variant of a record you can buy (provided it’s in stock) and test presses are never one of those options. Thanks.
Hear a new Frameworks song over on Decibel Magazine!
Once upon a time, Evan Weiss took us to see Stonehenge. We met his doppleganger there. We would like to offer one lucky person the chance to win a SD Dark Hearts LP and shirt, and maybe a special bonus prize, if they can come up with the most creative photoshopped Greg Horbal doppleganger photo.
1.) THIS MUST BE FUNNY BUT TASTEFUL!
2.) PHOTO MUST BE TAGGED #SHITTYGREGTWIN
3.) HAVE FUN!
4.) WINNER WILL BE DECIDED THIS TIME NEXT THURSDAY!
GOODBYE AND GOODLUCK!

In a strange twist of events — or non-events, I guess you could say — we have never actually met Field Mouse. We have all the same stupid dumb friends and one time I saw Rachel post a tweet about Faraquet so I just know that we’d really all get along great. We feel like we already know them, you know?
So today we are mega excited to announce that we have begun the beginning stages of meeting our new future best friends in Field Mouse. The process is a little unorthodox and involves the releasing of a new album titled Hold Still Life which will be released July 22, 2014. Friendship is all about commitment, you guys, and we’re obviously now pretty super committed over here.
The upcoming LP, co-produced by band members Andrew Futral and Rachel Browne, marks Field Mouse's first full-length that's been written and released as a full band. The album was recorded at Seaside Lounge, Brooklyn & Let 'em In, Brooklyn and mixed by Kyle Gilbride (Swearin', Waxahatchee, Upset).
Upon returning from a tour with Laura Stevenson and the Cans in 2013, the band wasted no time arranging the album. Inspired by burgeoning adulthood, social overload and isolation, life in New York, and the realization that life is going by with a terrifying swiftness (plus a handful of breakup songs to boot), Field Mouse wrote and recorded the new album in late 2013.
If you’re a fan of artists like The Breeders, Sonic Youth, Velocity Girl, My Bloody Valentine, Beach House or Juliana Hatfield, you’re gonna enjoy Field Mouse. Plus, they have a really great cover of the Twin Peaks song so there’s that.
Check out this great write-up of Tancred's self-titled LP!!

Hey! We’re very, very excited to announce that we’ll be releasing a new Sundials EP later this summer! Holy butts we love this band.
Sundials have always been a band that’ve bounced around and done things on their own terms — releasing records with a slew of awesome labels like Kiss of Death and Eevil Weevil along the way. It was 2012’s When I Couldn’t Breathe (released on also great Asian Man), however, that straight up floored us. It is equal parts punk, pop and rock — all in perfect balance. This band has a special knack for harnessing John K.-esque lyrical imagery paired with pure feel-good musical peaks and valleys that demand to be turned up.
The band begins recording the EP this weekend at Noisy Little Critter in West Chester, PA with producer Mike Bardzik (Spraynard, Everyone Everywhere) whom they worked with on their last studio LP, When I Couldn’t Breathe. More details soon!
Last Fall we hit the beach with Prawn and put together a little video for the song “Laki.” It was a real pleasure working with these guys and their music is incredible. Check them out at Topshelf Records and Fair Weather Records if you haven’t already, and don’t forget to watch the video over at the AV Club!
