Astrobrite - “Jingle Bells”
Enjoy this originally untitled hidden track from Super Crush. It’ll get you in that Christmas spirit, shoegaze style.
Andrew Marrah of NEW CANYONS (and Airiel, and Mahogany, and Astrobrite) guest DJs with DJ Peroxide TONIGHT (7/19) at Late Bar, Chicago. It’s BITTERSWEET + BLVD! Check this video, which is a preview of songs from their upcoming “Everyone is Dark” album… coming soon.
Speaking of Population… one of their songs has been featured on this freakin’ killer CVLT Nation Deathrock Mixtape 2012, amongst many bands we love, including Cemetery, Cross Stitched Eyes, Lost Tribe, Spectres, Bellicose Minds, and so on. Stream or download this mix RIGHT HERE!
STARING PROBLEM have come back from their tour, which received awesome reviews, and where they SOLD OUT of their new BLVD EP. NO WORRIES THOUGH… we still have ‘em for sale HERE. If you buy the Staring Problem EP at Laurie’s Planet of Sound, Chicago, get a FREE button! And Reckless Records says, “Buy two and give one to the DJ at NEO… RECOMMENDED!”
MAHOGANY are selling limited-edition, beautiful posters from their epic show at Lincoln Hall with Gel Set & Windy & Carl… designed by Andrew Prinz! This is pretty much a MUST HAVE for your abode… PURCHASE HERE!
BLVD is very pleased to announce some upcoming collaborations with one of our “sister-labels,” NEON SIGH out of Seattle. BLVD + NEON SIGH will be working together to release NEW ASTROBRITE works, on CD and vinyl! Stay tuned for more info, and follow Neon Sigh on Facebook HERE!
NORTH HIGHLANDS!!!!! Our first non-Chicago-based band recently did a Daytrotter Session, which you can check out HERE. We recently received the test presses of our “Wild One” vinyl release…which sounds ridiculously awesome. Fans of dreamy psychedelia, indiepop, twee, postpunk: check ‘em out!

This is the last copy of the vinyl version of In Her Gentle Jaws that was sold in the world from what I can gather. I even was lucky enough to get a rare clear vinyl version in mint condition.
I’ve updated the back catalog of most of the free things that I’ve posted on my blog over the past four years (albums are located under ‘Releases’)
