HALFBYTES

Halfbytes, the duo of J.S. Adams (BLK W/BEAR, BLK TAG) and Chester Hawkins (Blue Sausage Infant), will have their EP available through the Panda next week.

In the meantime, here they are from a set in Greenbelt, Maryland.

More New Music Afoot

There’s something about the word afoot that is fun to say.  Maybe it’s because of Sherlock Holmes.  2016 is looking to be quite the year for the Panda after a slow 2015.  First up will be Halfbytes, the glitch art project of J.S. Adams and Chester Hawkins.  Halfbytes’s debut will be of the Temporary Release variety.   This will be followed up by another Temporary Release Program album, also including J.S. Adams: BLK TAG.  From there, we’re looking at the long-awaited drone compilation Excerpts from Ten Innovative Workout Tapes.

 

Happy New Year!

New Music Afoot

EATING FACES

EATING FACES

A few new releases are on the way!  Oddly enough, two are by bands that capitalize their entire band names.

FACE-EATERS OF HONG KONG is up first.  Their debut EP, EATING FACES EP, will be available in August on a pay what you want basis.  It was recorded in Texas and DC and sounds like super crazy music from the future.

After that, we’ll have the debut of the cross-country drone band RETIREMENT.   Based in DC and California, RETIREMENT does glacially-paced intense drones.  Their EP is brought to you by Small Craft and STUPID CHILDREN.

We will also be releasing a drone compilation, featuring a number of great artists from DC.  There will be more on this later, but it sounds awesome.
