Listen to the LA-based label’s mixtape stream featuring Kisses, Astronauts, etc, Maxim Ludwig and more - Keeping things as DIY as possible, “All of their artists are signed through instinct as well as personal connections and recommendations.” - Judy Nelson, Redefine Mag
The video for ‘Assembly Line’ was shot in the Downtown warehouse where Maxim worked as the foreman and supply chain manager for a premium packaging & box set company. He wrote the song during his lunch breaks, and “…it’s prettier than his dolled up face by the end of this clip.”
From their second album, Women’s Rights, “Let’s Be Bad” “…is an explosion of the patriarchy-warped feminine id, with references to overeating, dressing in ill-fitting “sexy” skirts, and drinking that ultimate naughty beverage, white wine.” - Ann Powers, NPR Check out the video HERE
Michael Nau has a new album coming out in Feb 2016, via Suicide Squeeze, entitled Mowing. The first single, Winter Beat, is “…a tune that does exactly what it says. Despite the scene he paints of barren trees and blinding snow, the sounds conjure a cozy and fuzzy flurry of psych-pop warmth.” - c. depasquale
“Matt Bauer’s new album creates a magical world where you need to actively listen or you’ll run the risk of missing the beauty that lies within.” Claudia Arnoldo, Elmore Magazine. Read more HERE and download the album today!
