So for awhile now I’ve been debating a new direction for Big Blonde. I’ve really enjoyed the compilations I’ve put together, and it gives me a little more creative control. At the time of this internal debate, Hira Mahmood reached out to me about putting a comp together. Now we have a badass release, Interphase, featuring 19 local bands and zine. The zine features articles by people in this scene writing about their opinions or experiences (which do not necessarily reflect my own duh). Pick one up in the store
I’m really proud of how everything turned out. And check back for more comps from BB. We’re most likely turning this into a seasonal release project.

Tifaret, Twins, and Deep Space (improve doom from members of Rapturous Grief and Order of the Owl) play as well.
These cavernous, doom sounds come from The Flail and The Wrathe–the anonymous duo behind Outer Gods. “I am the flail of god. Had you not created great sins, god would not have sent the wrath of me upon you,” said Genghis Khan before he decimated an entire city. Punish your ears in the most pleasurable way this Wednesday. Badass artwork by Jeremy McCleary. Two versions of risographed covers. Comecomecome!!!

The opening date of AZL was also Chandu’s tape release show for Creme de Chandu’s. You can now purchase this 5 song tape online as well!
RIGHT NOW we are duplicating Manic tapes and will finish God’s Balls (hopefully) in time for the show tonight at Suburban Lanes. New York artist Jane Mai did the artwork for this one, so we’re doubly excited. See you tonight!!
