      Posted on in News

      If you’ve followed us for a while, chances are you’ve heard us raving about Tacoma post-rock powerhouse Lo’ There Do I See My Brother (or LTDISMB, for short…er). This talented collective released a towering masterpiece early in 2015 titled Northern Shore, and the gang has played a string of shows in support of the new album. We are honored to be hosting the premiere of a new music video for “Twenty Three”, the aching fifth (and probably my favorite) track off Northern Shore that bisects the album with its tender strummings and Adam Wolbert’s gentle vocal work. Take a watch or three below, and catch LTDISMB next week at the 2015 Vans Warped Tour in Auburn!


    5. Local Spotlight : Ben Zaidi

      Posted on in Local Spotlight

      We’ve worked with Ben in the past before, for his indie hip hop project Bared Grillz. Well, the multi-talented Seattle musician and producer is back from the East coast with a new project operating as Ben Zaidi, and we’re stoked to help premiere his record Sophomore. The new material represents four years of writing and a huge departure from Bared Grillz, but is as impressive and demonstrative of Ben’s wide talents as his older work. We’ve had the honor and pleasure of streaming the full album, and it is stunning. From the bittersweet marching of opening track “Faithfall” to the rapid wordplay in “Hollowed By You”, the record is a genre-spanning treasure well worth picking up. Head to Ben’s Bandcamp to stream and download at the great price of PWYW.
