That Epic Reggae Set's 'Wynona!' is set to celebrate its tenth anniversary this year with a launch of thirty individually numbered cassette tapes (Featuring two unreleased tracks from the original recording sessions) on October 4th at the Post Gallery.

Recording sessions for Wynona! started in October of 2003 and concluded in June the following year. With sixteen songs ranging from the fuzzy opening track of 'Northeastern Liar Redial' to the howling guitar of 'Frequency Chimp', Wynona! retained much of the charm and quality found in its predecessor, Pleasurecraft.

On October 4 2014 at Post Gallery, Albert Sy of Nine Iron will be playing analogue mixes on cassette tapes on boomboxes and will also be launching the cassette tape release of That Epic Reggae Set's Wynona!. Other cassette tape releases by Nine Iron will also be available in this event.

Rod Mijares Combo's debut LP 'See You In My Twang!' is now available on Beat the Robot Recordings!

Featuring a plethora of vibrant and rousing guitar-driven capers such as its eponymous opening track, 'The Shadowman', the upbeat melodies of 'La Union' and the warm and amorous vibe of 'Love Means'. The Rod Mijares Combo also mixes it up with tracks like 'Baby Boomer', which features a blistering two minute and thirty second drum solo that hits all the right notes and the unconventional 'Wanderland' that has a shadowy guitar riff played to the backdrop of various old Hollywood dialogue.

Introducing: Pastilan Dong

January 15, 2014

Pastilan Dong!

This Sweetness Unto Deafness: Pastilan Dong!

With its pulse in noise rock and its heart in shoegaze, Pastilan Dong! has released a guitar-laden debut record with a sonic contour that shifts between crystalline tones and massive, hissing waves of distortion. The band’s songs (with the exception of a few tracks) are minimalistic and the vocals are fragile, sheathed in reverb, and oftentimes threatened by a wild crescendo of drums and guitars. Your ears will drip with blood and honey.

Pastilan Dong!’s debut album is now available at Beat the Robot Recordings and upcoming tour dates will be announced soon.
