If you haven't already, check out these live recordings from your favorite Zhonglerz! Donations are being encouraged to help these guys fund their forthcoming studio album, which could be pressed on vinyl if we all make some magic happen! <3

Holographic Dreamingg

Speaking of new jams, this past week local duo Dolphin Logic dropped their debut, Holographic Dreamingg, on Oakland's Tundra. It has been getting peeped about all over the internets, from showing up on an Impose Magazine hot new release list (among heavy hitters like Zola Jesus, Frankie Rose, The Babies, etc.), all the way to France. Congrats, boys. Snag the download for only 1.99.

New Year, New Jams

Been takin' a little break for the holidays.. but we're back and have a lot of news to share over the next few weeks.

Seems like almost every band in Carby has been in the studio in some form or another, so we've got a lot of new releases to look forward to over the next few months. 3 bands who will all have new releases out soon are playing together at Hangar 9 tonight, so if you wanna catch the new material in action now is your chance.

Secondary Modern just put the finishing touches on their newest 12-song record, here is a little sneak peak:

Kid Tiger just finished their second EP, Sleep, you can stream the tracks on their bandcamp and we imagine they'll be having a release show very soon.

The Jewels have also been in the studio working on a full-length album, we haven't got any leaks of that yet, but you can check out a few songs they recorded not too long ago that have been on the hush until now:

Saturday Jan. 7th
+ The Jewels
++ Secondary Modern
@ Hangar 9
9p!!!, 19+, $5

Dolphin Logic, Parlor, Staring Problem, Autonomy, Brett Haley, Nighty Night, Wei Zhongle, Freedom Ride, and more have stuff on the way too!

Black Fortys new album VOODOO MOON has finally hit the interworld, and you can download it for free for a limited time only at their bandcamp!

Staring Problem just announced that they have a 7" coming out on BLVD Records this spring, and they're already at work on a followup release as well.

Wei Zhongle is about to head into the studio, but here is a live recording from the show they played with Tweak Bird last month that sounds killer! Can't wait for the record.
