Fall Distro: Drunk Elk "Oceanus Procellarum" cassette

Well, we were just starting to feel like normal, well-adjusted types around here. Able to make convincing small talk with friends and coworkers. We were even being invited places again.  Yeah, so I guess its a good thing we have a new Drunk Elk tape to knock us down a few pegs. Catchy enough to keep you humming along along but unsettling enough to make you feel like a low life creep if someone catches you listening to it. This is the follow up to the excellent Under Neon Light LP from a while back (itself a follow up from their excellent, cough cough, Quemada single).  The tape comes to us from Dave Elk's new Doctor Guten Tag label. Its in an edition of 50, or so we're led to believe. Of which we have but a very short stack. Listen HERE.

Wormword Grasshopper is going to be giving this tape a short run vinyl treatment soon and there's rumors of even more new Drunk Elk in the works. Looks like we'll be staying in for a while.

Oh, and we have some new Quemada releases in the works for the winter including a record from an, gasp, American group!
