Fresh air, twinkling white lights on snow-covered branches, stars in the sky. Glassy synths shimmer like icy crystal as ghostly choral samples loop in the background. A perfect soundtrack for a cold winter’s night – with a little emotion added to melt your cold, cold heart.
This one was a couple of seasons in the making – but it’s finally ready for the world.
Five colors on found paper. Available at the Cherokee Heights Arts Festival in Marietta Georgia on Saturday, November 11. But there’s only one to be had, so be quick! See you there?
Colors! Layers! Bricks!
The Breeders are back with a new 7″ single and a super-saturated new video by former Vaughn Oliver associate Chris Bigg. Oliver and Bigg are, of course, praised for their cover art and design expertise on so many 4AD projects including every single Pixies release. This video is right up there with the best of them.
You’re going to need to watch this one full-screen.
Pop colors and geometry. What else do you really need?
This one – along with a bunch of new, new, new work – will be available at our shop at the Cherokee Heights Arts Festival in Marietta, Georgia on Saturday, November 11. See you there?
Picture, if you will, a bunch of college kids rolling down a rural road in a beat-up set of wheels, windows down, tunes blaring, bright blue skies and not a care in the world. Sound familiar?

Sort of. Just replace the farms with colorful flower gardens and the late-summer heat with a refreshing late-spring breeze and you’re just about there. That, and they’re probably a little better dressed than those other kids.
Here, big, bright, shimmering atmospherics and sweet, somewhat straightforward (but no less sublime) imagery collide, expand out, and go on for miles. It’s the perfect soundtrack for catching the rays as you cruise to the beach to catch some waves.
