Muun Bato – S/T

Muun Bato materialized in the summer of 2018 when Joe Werner (First Communion Afterparty, Driftwood Pyre, Bridge Club) & Andy Iwanin (Basement Apartment, The Pitchafits) were rehearsing for a one-time collaboration show in Minneapolis. Both perfect strangers, they found themselves playing improvised guitar & drums that could well have been finished songs. The chemistry was perfect, sprouting an insatiable appetite to write songs together.

Priscilla Renea — Coloured

A singer and songwriter who has enjoyed success in the public eye and behind the scenes, Priscilla Renea went from making videos in her bedroom to becoming one of the most successful songwriters in R&B and pop in just over five years. Born in Florida in 1988, Renea took up writing songs in her teens, and began posting homemade videos of her performing her work online. After developing a sizable following for her videos, Renea landed a record deal and released her first album, a dance-pop effort titled Jukebox, in 2009. The album generated few sales, but Renea’s songs became a hot commodity, and she wrote hits for Rihanna (“California King Bed”), Fifth Harmony (“Worth It”), and Kesha (“Timber”), among others. In 2018, Renea took time off from her songwriting career to release a new album, Coloured, dominated by strong, emotionally mature R&B with hints of country and gospel.

 

The Lees of Memory — The Blinding White of Nothing At All

Customer Highlight — Snake Oil

Snake Oil consists of members of Titles and Weigh Down. John from Titles says, “The band started as a recording project Jason Labbe from Weigh Down was working on. He reached out to a bunch of us and after a few months of recording and tweaking we ended up with an album.  It has been said that “Snake Oil causes spasmodic rapture, unexpected pregnancy, and existential certainty. Be with it.”  The LP will be officially streeting in June…thanks to Jason for letting us press it!
