Ash has called the record the most honest thing she’s ever made, and it repeatedly surprises me with its poignant moments. Every song is a beautifully frank observation of love—its endings, beginnings, and troubled in-betweens. All of it true, all of it delivered by Ash’s simultaneously confident and delicate soprano. ~ Marie Orttenburger (Mostly Midwest)

The Potions are Hamtramck's favorite neighborhood band, they're cute, cuddly, and weird as hell. The also have a thing where they only play if it's a full moon. Led by papa bear Dave Morrison on vocals / harmonica; featuring the guitar stylings of Richie Wohlfeil (Belle Isles, Danny & The Darleans, Detroit Cobras), woven with the bass of Adam Stanfel, and tempo-ed by the great Charlie McCutcheon (every other band ever), these guys' are sure to make you want to re-connect with your grandparents or rescue a kitty.

Ziemba, aka René Kladzyk, is a Brooklyn-based performance artist and space-pop diviner, whose songs have been featured on Comedy Central’s brilliant cult hit show, Broad City. Her cheerily-titled debut album, Hope Is Never, is by turns euphoric, alienating and devastating, and it’s always quietly enthralling. It is, she says, ‘about nostalgia and memory, the way to conceive of death as that thing that connects us to eternity or the infinite’. Well, that and tiger women, seals and fires and buffalos. ~ Nicola Meighan

Sorry for the obscurity, but I'm presenting this record as it was presented to me: a couple strips of pink tape over the tabs or a Rod Stewart singles colleciton—no information, just a great, lost record dubbed over a random tape. This record is a direct transfer of the original cassette, no cleaning or "restoring," just the raw tape, side for side. Black label on black wax, stuffed in a random repurposed jacket, sprayed with a band of chrome paint. A Detroit underground classic.

Dirty Dove lp

Originally circulated as the "Rod Stewart Tape" this obscuro-handmade cassette tape that we committed to wax has a name! This record was presented to me as a Rod Stewart cassette singles collection with a couple strips of pink tape over the tabs so it could be dubbed over. No information, just a great, lost record dubbed over a random tape. This record is a direct transfer of the original cassette, no cleaning or "restoring," just the raw tape, side for side in recycled jackets. A Detroit underground classic.

Another great local artifact, this one the long-lost second album by psych-heavies HV, led by Ernie "Magi" Fackler, with Jeff "Giant" Fournier (who later went on to help Timmy Vulgar out with his "Organism") on bass, and Andrew Lakin on drums. Recorded in the mid 2000's but never released as the band dissolved shortly after, it's nice that this cd-r I got from the floor of Jeff's truck back in 2007 is finally seeing the light of day! dig it and also hear: Magi and Timmy's Organism
