KENT STATE "Samsara" 7"
(Debt #9) Kent State, aka Nicholas Vance (Deep Sleep, Suspect) returns with two new tracks of psychedelic death pop. This is the first-ever vinyl release of new Kent State material, following up a series of sold out cassettes (compiled last year on the "Wrong Side of History" LP), and the musical growth displayed here is beyond evident. While staying true to the original roots of Kent State's swervedriver-meets-brainbombs-meets-oasis sound, these new songs are catchier, more driving, and dare I say the best songs Vance has ever written.
(300 copies, with silkscreened covers, on yellow vinyl, with download card)
SUPERCRUSH "I Don't Want to be Sad Anymore" 7"
(Debt #8) The second 7" from Supercrush, aka the duo of Mark Palm (Go It Alone, Black Breath, Modern Charms) and Aaron O'Neil (ON, Lights Out), picks up where their debut 7" (recently reissued on Grave Mistake) left off. Taking cues from the likes of Teenage Fanclub and Matthew Sweet while doing something completely fresh at the same time, this is a must for all power pop fans.
(First 100 on BLUE VINYL, remaining 200 copies on BLACK VINYL. Comes with download code. Co-released with Painter Man Records)
