All Dogs Invited and Skymongrel Records present the first physical release from ADI, “Mammals Amongst Us.” A bite-sized platter first released digitally in March 2013, this is 4 songs and 13 solid minutes of memorable sweet rock-and-roll music I’ve loved getting sweaty to since late 2012. Such sweet beasts, 3 radly talented musicians (Alex Bell, Edward Bell, Cody Janko) who have been playing together for years in the Cedar Rapids / Mount Vernon / Iowa City area. Just got back from their first tour too! Check these beauties out

FCR-80 “See It In Color” split C18 by Devin Dart & Thunder Bunny

This tape is for summer, homie. These bright spots will getcha out on your porch or general front yard region with some cheap beer and your best friends. For real. Five tracks of total dusk-adventure-dream-pop to put you in the mood. Devin Dart bangs away on two tracks with a shimmering bridge of pure light between them. Thunder Bunny starts his side slow and gooey, and finishes with the pop epic “Simple Days,” 5 minutes plus of warm and fuzzy rock ‘n fucking roll. This shit is just lovely. You will want this for those romantic drunk nights that will soon be every night. March 2012, edition of 53

FCR-76 Make Believe Bombs / Color Rabbit split C62

MBB / CRSome nightglow adventures await you on this near-hour-long ancient-astronaut art exhibit at your local tape deck or portable walkman. Make Believe Bombs spits out a single half-hour track to cover the first side, ranging from black-hole glittering rock sequences to brain melodies that float, to ambiance with loops in the emptiest space in the middle of all eternity. Ends hopeful and quiet / loud. Then, Color Rabbit comes in brimming with forever-optimism, more pop-oriented than usual maybe but still way into fun and improvisation, bringing a wide-eyed starry density overflowing with just . . . NICE ONE-ness. 8 solid tracks that alternately rock, build and grow from simple flute loop seeds, ice skate on the surface of your consciousness, and finally get you high and gently drop you back down to the ground. Wonderfull cup. The tapes themselves are painted in glow-in-the-dark paint and have full-color jcards and inserts, and, coupled with the larger volume than usual, explain the somewhat higher than usual prices I have listed. BUT IT’LL BE WORTH IT, this is a sweet and dank slab with some really varied styles. Hope you enjoy. Edition of 50, June 2011
