The Lost Days - Lost Demos EP

The Lost Days (Tony Molina, Sarah Rose Janko) were last seen at a local corner store buying cheap wine, humming melodies of the Byrds, and plotting their escape. Their debut EP "Lost Demos" is best listened to in the sunshine, on a tape deck of any fidelity.

Sitka Sun - All The Way West

All The Way West - Sitka Sun's sophomore release - is both a carefully composed instrumental jazz album and a spaced-out contemplation on the human condition. It is music for right now, as we come out of 2020 and hopefully into a changing world: it encourages reflection, inspires movement, & welcomes new growth.

Desiree Cannon - Beach Sleeper

In her debut release, Beach Sleeper, Desiree Cannon leaves everything on the studio floor - the studio, in this case, is the living room of a 1920s Oakland house littered with records and a variety of 1970s and 80s analog recording equipment. The album is heart-worn, complicated, and raw - it's recommended for anyone who understands the complexity of human emotion and isn't afraid to cry.
