Singing Lawn Chair - The Door In the Window Cassette (2018)

We wish we could tell you more about Singing Lawn Chair. But the top hit for Singing Lawn Chair is our post of their last tape. But we did find this lovely video, with a soundtrack by them:

We picked this tape up at Sloth; maybe there's another copy there?

Uncanny Valley - Demo (2018)

Uncanny Valley feels like the logical next step for Aiwass, with Ryan Von Hagen and Gwen Morgan adding a full band to delivery their blasts of dark wave punk. Yelping vocals, Cure/New Order bass lines, propelling drums, chorus-y guitars and icy synths. What more do you want? One of our must-sees for Sled Island.

Get it via the Uncanny Valley bandcamp.

Pre Nup - Oh Well (2018)

New tape time! This one has been sitting in the CCPS office tape deck (one of them, anyways) since it came out last month. Pre Nup is like the, well, grown up version of Josiah and Sarah Hughes' former band, Grown-Ups. There's a sense of exhaustion to this tape, despite the songs barreling along at something just shy of a breakneck speed. When Josiah sings, "Music is my life a living hell and the product of my privilege - oh well," we get the feels. We also get a distinct Wedding Present vibe off of this, which means we're probably mishearing something.

Get the download from the Pre Nup bandcamp, or the tape from the good folks at Debt Offensive.

CCPS Miscellany: Foes of Respiration - Avoid Inhaling (1989)

Today's tape comes to us via Chris Zuk, our ever-reliable source for all things Edmonton. Zuk tells us these guys were the precursor to the Minstrels on Speed. And, yup, this sounds like it's in the same vein as the Minstrels, just more basement-y and low fi.

Which, in our books, is always a good thing.

Long Named West Coast Band - Sick Trees Yellow Leaves (1989)

This tape comes to us via the former proprietor of Golden Rock (the blog, not the record label). We're not overly-familiar with this band (read: we have no idea who these guys were). We suspect these guys somehow became Defoliator, but that's all we got.

Get it here!

A-Team - Sampler (1995)

We're inching towards the 11th anniversary of the CCPS, so we figure we should get our heads at least partially out of our asses and post something. We've had a few tapes sitting on in the queue for a while, so here goes.

This one comes from us via Eddie at Melodiya, who dug this out of who knows where. There's nothing new or surprising on this tape - all of these songs show up on other A-Team recordings we've posted. But, hey, it's a new (old) tape, and that's a pretty rare find for us these days.

I'm (still) a truck!
