Vex Ruffin offers new free EP & announces debut LP

Vex Ruffin makes hypnotic and minimal electro-punk music that summons the spirit of early proto-punk pioneers like Suicide, combined with the electro disco of label mate James Pants. Merging brooding synthesizers and added fuzzed out guitar riffs over his rhythmic tracks, Vex Ruffin’s self-titled debut full-length confirms he’s an uncomplicated guy with an unabashed adoration for minimal sonic textures.Vex takes new wave, 60s psychedelia, primitive electronic and gnarly rock and roll, chopping and changing genres, breaking all the rules of conventional songwriting.

Boogarins sign with Other Music, announce debut LP

Fernando Almeida and Benke Ferraz met in high school in the central Brazilian city of Goiânia, far from the thriving cultural metropolises of São Paulo and Rio, yet nevertheless in the shadow of the icons of their homeland’s great musical heritage — not bossa nova and samba, however, but psychedelic pop. Still in their late teens, the music they make together, recorded on borrowed gear and with self-taught technology in their parents’ basements, shares the spirit and soul of Tropicalismo, but it has also blossomed in the light of the current international DIY underground. Almeida is the poet and singer, Ferraz is the multi-instrumentalist and gear-head, and together, as Boogarins, they write songs that reach beyond their years and any restrictions of geography or genre: timeless pop untethered from categorizations.

Sam Flax heads to SXSW & touring w/ Foxygen

Sam Flax is set to play this year’s SXSW followed by a short West Coast tour that includes dates with Foxygen and the Burgerama fest. The Californian artist and multi-instrumentalist released his debut full length Age Waves last year on Burger Records.

Composed, produced and recorded by Flax over a period of several years, ‘Age Waves’ expertly melds garage pop, new wave, 60’s psych, motorik rhythms and 70’s FM rock into a kaleidoscopic and highly idiosyncratic vision of avant-pop.  His live band has consisted of a number of talented musicians including Jamie Dutcher (Holy Shit), Michael Taras (Shock), and Amy Blaustein (Hunx & His Punks) who’ve helped translate and reinterpret the recorded songs to the stage.
