We are so excited to announce that we’ll be releasing the new SHIP THIEVES album Irruption which comes out on March 12th!
Irruption is a long-time coming for Wollard and the gang, as this collection of tracks have been in the works for several years as the intended follow-up to their critically acclaimed 2016 record No Anchor. Produced by Ryan Williams at Black Bear Recording Studio (Hot Water Music, Pedro The Lion), Irruption is the in-your-face punk record that’ll knock your teeth out within the opening seconds.
Stay tuned as new music and ordering information are coming soon!
“THE ROADS TO RICHMOND”
Tim Barry has released his masterful new album, The Roads To Richmond! While Barry’s albums are always built on his personal experiences, none have felt as raw as The Roads To Richmond, which plays like journal entries ripped out of a notebook then set to music. Written largely outside of his hometown, the songs on The Roads To Richmond chronicle a period of transition, the product of an artist working to re-establish normalcy and find his way forward. Recorded once again with Lance Koehler, this time around Barry completely shifted his process, recording once a week in three-hour sessions without any concept of what The Roads To Richmond would end up being.

Recorded at Ronnie’s Place on Music Row in Nashville, TN and featuring Mike Sneeringer (Strand of Oaks) and Adam Meisterhans (Rozwell Kid), Two Coyotes finds Harvey looking beyond the blinding flash of all that seems to glitter and reconnects with the roots of song, reminiscent of a time when music was more folk tradition than commodity. The album feels like a spiritual descendent of the country and folk music that influenced its creation, while maintaining continuity with the electric guitar-driven style of his previous work. The result is a conversation between the warm acoustic nature of country and the deliberate twang and richness of rock and roll, with a deeply emotive message and timeless delivery.
Right now, Tim Barry is detoxing. Not from drugs or alcohol, but from his own music. “When the record’s finally done, and the master is approved, I erase every file that’s been sent to me and I throw out all the CDs with all of the rough mixes. I get rid of everything,” says Barry. And that’s exactly where he’s at, in the middle of cleanse from his own work. He sat down with his new record, High On 95 (Chunksaah Records), for the first time. Like all of his albums, High On 95 was recorded by Lance Koehler at Minimum Wage Studios in Richmond Virginia. High On 95 carries the raw, emotional catharsis that’s become synonymous with a Tim Barry album.
Lovelorn, conversation-like lyrics, guitars jangling over pounding rhythms, an idiosyncratic vocal style, and a healthy nod to any number of old-school indie-pop and post-punk acts; Smalltalk takes the finest aspects of Echo and the Bunnymen and the Cure’s less lethargic emotions and propels it thirty years forward for a new audience.
Smalltalk Plus! collects all four out of print e.p. releases on double 12” Vinyl (w/ Digital Download Card). Features custom die-cut jacket and available in multiple color versions – collect them all! Also available on CD.
Seaside Caves are a dreamy smear of sticky lipgloss across a sullen, shadowed face; hazy androgen neu-wave pop from the New Jersey shore. This is their debut EP. Five tracks of big 80s John Hughes pop choruses, melancholic vocals, weltschmerz synths, bleak chorused bass, glittering guitars and tight, burly drums. These songs detail a hopefulness that begs to crest the bleak, nethermost depths of life, but is often beaten back; a stargazing crawl through the underbelly. This is music that dwells in the darkness but does not wallow in it.
