THE ALWAYS RED SOCIETY
GIANT CHOCOLATE THINK TANK BLUES

Limited Edition of 200 hand-numbered cassettes
Each cassette comes with a small booklet of artwork by Will Cullen Hart
First 50 orders will feature a unique handpainted/screenprinted slipcover

Giant Chocolate Think Tank Blues is the second known cassette by Will Cullen Hart’s solo project, The Always Red Society, before he helped form The Olivia Tremor Control. Some of the songs featured here would later be re-recorded/re-imagined for The OTC’s classic debut LP, Dusk At Cubist Castle. Available now for the first time in 20 years, these tracks give us a unique look in on the beginning stages of something legendary. Hart is a founding member of the Elephant 6 Recording Co., and in addition to Olivia Tremor Control, he went on to form Circulatory System, and has performed with/been involved with an absurd number of incredible musical projects and bands. Get this piece of elephant 6 history in yer earholes! Pre-order now! Tapes will be shipping out in July!

Yep, this is happening! Grab one before they’re gone (again)!

My apologies for not posting much on the Tumblr lately but in my defense I recently got married(!) and I’ve been busy working on releases for both Hope For The Tape Deck and Big School.

Speaking of Big School, pre-orders are live for the newest BSR jawn, I Sleep Alone, from Philly’s very own Psalmships. ‘Stars Pt. 2’ is the second single off the album but let’s not get caught up in the blog clap-trap of ‘singles’ - you’re more than welcome to indulge yourselves in the entire album on Bandcamp

Don’t sleep on ordering either - LP pre-orders come with a free 7” of unreleased tracks and the CD version comes with alternate packaging and a bonus CD of live in-studio versions of songs spanning the Psalmships discography.

Lastly, if you’re in the area on 7/11 you’ll need to schedule yourself at Bourbon & Branch for the record release show! 

Pleasantly surprised with how Gentlemen-ly/Black Love-ly this track and the new LP are. Comeback players of the year?

Podcasts For Moderns / Episode .005 {PODCAST/MIXTAPE}

Phew - I’m totally burnt out from record shopping. Record Store Day was a serious mental and financial drain this year - so much great shit came out. I even went back for seconds the Monday after and I feel like I’m still shopping online! Anyways…this edition of Podcasts For Moderns is all classic jams from my personal vault so you may recognize most, if not all, of these bands/songs…especially if you know me. I think the next edition will be a (drum roll, please) special Record Store Day podcast, chronicling tracks from the giant fucking pile of records I bought…
