IAM8BIT and LOVESHACK are “jazzed” to have minted the sultry, sneaky score to the award-winning game, FRAMED, on vinyl. Composed by ADRIAN MOORE (also one of the game’s designers), the noir jazz trappings of this album are nothing short of intoxicating – a soundtrack perfectly complimented by unfiltered cigs, a dry martini and charming acts of covert espionage. Featuring a die cut jacket with plastic ‘windows’ and themed innersleeve, the jacket art looks different every time you put the record back!

The Colorado based guitar/fiddle songwriting team of Clint and Amy Bales, better known around some parts as ALMOST PIONEERS, formed in 2013. The husband and wife team grew up on the plains of Kansas and have a unique brand of folk, blues and country that stands apart from other acoustic music produced in the Rocky Mountain region. After a well received demo CD, the duo are back with their ‘E.P.’ – a 10” sure to make you feel at home…

The best music emerges from true emotions that a songwriter feels compelled to express. It’s that sense of urgency that permeates every second of the new album from I’M GLAD IT’S YOU, “The Things I Never Say”, giving listeners an intimate window into something truly heartfelt. As each song passes, it’s as if pages of a personal journal have been transposed into lyrics, laid perfectly atop music accompaniment. Their debut LP coming courtesy of 6131 RECORDS, I’M GLAD IT’S YOU heads out on a west coast tour starting December and will be out east in April.
