Mark Lanegan & Duke Garwood Release “Black Pudding” Today
Having our own record label allows us to work with artists that we have long admired. Mark Lanegan is one of those artists. Simply put, Mark is one of the greatest vocalists of all time! When he called to say he was making a stripped down record with one of London’s best bluesmen, Duke Garwood, we simply said, “yes, please.”
The two played on the same bill a few years ago and Garwood quickly became one of Lanegan’s favorite artists, it became clear they were kindred musical spirits.
So here we present to you the fruits of that collaboration, “Black Pudding.” NPR calls it “a powerful, meditative new album” and Clash magazine calls it a “bewitching masterpiece.” We could not describe it any better.

We regret to inform you that there was a mixup with the CD packaging and the sticker placed on the front. The CD was stickered with the LP sticker claiming there was a 'download card with bonus tracks', the download card was mistakenly not included inside the CD package. So, here it is for your downloadable pleasure. Sorry for the mass confusion and inconvenience. We truly appreciate your support and understanding!
Last year our friends at Valve, the creators of some of the best videogames in the world, called us. They said that diehard Portal fans had been clamoring for a compilation of the music from the Portal games. Well, as fate would have it, we are gamers too! Voila! A 4-disc set of more Portal music than you will find anywhere and a nifty, top secret bonus too! This is beyond a stocking stuffer, the Portal 2: Songs to Test By soundtrack is a gamer/music fans dream! Play on, we say!!!!!!
See what the folks at Pitchfork are saying about the upcoming ISIS compilation, "Temporal" (out next Tuesday, Nov 6th!)
Tomahawk in New Orleans
Planning on going to New Orleans to be one of the first to check out the return of Tomahawk at the VooDoo Music Experience festival on October 28th? We just found out the band will be going on at 5pm on the Le Carnival stage. A little earlier than expected due to curfew. Don't miss it, it's going to be fun!
