I think about pokemon in non-battle situations a lot. Like pokemon who have been trained/raised to be helpers and assistants than to be battle partners.
Pokemon visiting hospitals to cheer patients up like dogs and cats do. Or ones that help kids learn to read, speak, swim, go through therapy?! Even pokemon who’s abilities help owners with specific disabilities?!
I love thinking of pokemon outside of battle situations.
So so so so stoked that the Empty Disco mixtapes are now in the Swet Records store! Side A is a medley of my best songs from 2011-2012, and Side B is the Ukulele Love Songs EP, plus one previously unreleased song, It’s Always Snowing in Montreal.
It was super fun working with my friend Nick to put these out. You can order them online from Swet, or you can find me in person for a copy (I will have them at shows!). It’s a limited run of about 50, so if you’re set on getting a copy you should either order from them soon or let me know to reserve you one.
If you’re buying stuff from Swet, I would totally suggest also picking up the Just Nick Bedpunk tapes (great, great album), as well as the Jacob Norman Chainsaw-Arm, Billy Mack Collector and Human Kitten tapes. So many great bands!
As some of you may have heard, our good friend Emily Sprague was hit by a truck earlier this year and was seriously injured. In the months since she had been in a neck brace and a sling but she is healing day by day and, just this week, has been freed from the neck brace!
Some of you may also remember the Song-a-day series from Florist (Emily, of course), eskimeaux, Japanese Breakfast, Frankie Cosmos and Small Wonder! Those are gathered here,
We’re so happy that Emily’s voice is back in action and we hope you’ll check out “6 Days of Songs”!
Have you checked this out yet?!
This album is amazing. After listening to it for almost a week straight I had a dream that I was in a giant paved lot by a beach to see Florist live. It was for a theoretical music festival but Florist was the only band I knew playing. I was stuck in the back of the lot and really wanted to get close to the music but couldn’t get any closer no matter where I walked.
