Joy Sores were (are?) an excellent shoegazed-infused punk band from northern Texas (Denton/Dallas area).  After a blistering set at ICTFEST in Wichita, KS in 2013, I was able to meet them and talk about all the bands and friends we had in common (mostly, Ten Grand and Battle Royale).  It just so happened that they were planning on recording as soon as they got back to Denton the next day, and I expressed some great desire to release it whenever they got it done.  They contacted me no less than a week later with this incredible little jammer, and Riding High was born.  Joy Sores have everything that I want from a live band - too much volume, too solid of melodies, and the kind of love and energy that keeps a band alive for years.  Riding High will be in print again eventually, but for now, check the knowledge below:

CLEME's newest album is a masterpiece in exploration - there's a lot of new ideas that come together in interesting ways on this album, and not all of them seem planned out.  In a lot of ways, this album feels like a surprise - one that you discover along with the artist as you listen.  "Magink" kicks off the album, and you'll immediately know what I mean when you hear it.

NOT COPS has spent about two years on this album, through lineup changes and lots of live performing, and they finally carved out the time to finish their debut LP and make it available.  It's out now on cassette, and will be available on CD and LP in the springtime.  Jam it for free now!

MARRICE ANTHONY is a mastermind, and NIMBUS 3 is no exception - from beginning to end, it's consistent and real hip-hop from one of today's most prolific and talented MCs.  It's the best production he's ever put forward, and without a doubt his finest release to date.  Listen to the entire album above, and grab a cassette before they're sold out!
