Artist: NAME, JACK
Title: Light Show
Format: LP
Label: God?
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
Maybe I can start by saying a little bit about JACK NAME. He is the only guy I know who can crush a joint by his lonesome and then look you right in the eye (and I consider myself an expert) and you would never suspect that hes not floating right along in the here and now. He is ahead ... the wheels are always turning unaffected by drugs, time or space. I met him first through White Fence, where he stood on a laptop generating noise along with guitar through, what is supposedly, an original homemade Grateful Dead speaker cabinet. How much good energy can one dude generate? Jack Name is a rare entity and a genius story/songsmith and I am envious as hell that GOD? Records is putting this out and not Castleface. Whiffs of young Brian Eno, Gary Numan, Chrome, ELO, Bruce Haack, even Richard OBrien (a la "Rocky Horror") and Stefan Wul stain the sleeves of this story, but its still wholly original and cooked at home so its as honest as it is good for you. The sounds are a dense and ever-shifting beastt-just an absolutely put-you-on-the-floor headphone record. The narrative holds as much significance as the sound; hopefully there will be a lyric sheet so teenagers ripe for a push in the right direction can follow along, pink-eyed, with their index fingers..."-John Dwyer, 2013.

Artist: NOVICK, DAVID
Title: s/t
Format: LP
Label: God?
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"God? Records re-presents the debut of David Novick. His self-titled album is officially a reissue, though the original was pressed in a short edition, for only one hundred souls. David and his bandmates in San Francisco Water Cooler put it out as the third release on their Sun Sneeze Records, and the copies were sold or handed out at shows. Braid twisted with folk and experimental and psychedelic artifacts that come on with a distinct aroma. If youve enjoyed hanging around the San Francisco Water Cooler, this here is a bit more lo-key than those songs. Busting out of the gate fleetly, like Lindsey Buckingham of the no-budget (and no-Nicks!) set, David Novick flashes through seven ambitiously built songs recorded in his Santa Cruz bedroom a few years ago, using Tascam four-track and eight-track cassette machines." - God?

Artist: NOVICK, DAVID
Title: Your Sisters Hand
Format: LP
Label: God?
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"With all thanks to GOD?, DAVID NOVICK has cycled back around for his second album release in less than a year. The reason for this rush-release? Its AWESOME! Your Sisters Hand stands distinctly from his debut, bringing the deep-country campfire folk vibe in from the great out-of-doors, where the shape of the sound is more defined--more pronounced, forward and colorful in arrangement, all of which allows the songs to shine brighter. In the water running in the creek speak all the voices of the world, yet it requires a certain kind of ear to hear them. Your Sisters Hand was recorded in a room in San Francisco, but manages to convey a message from way out there in the pasture, which means Davids ability to conjure atmospherically is growing. Endlessly falling in love with a crumbling world, Davids songs reach towards the sight of eternity, but the textures of electric and acoustic guitars add contrast as they sooth and bristle next to each other and somehow opening the vista ever wider. Drums and vocal harmonies (either by David or CLAIRE PLUMB) leave ghostly thumbprints on the images. Its a lonely sound; photographs of light pinned to the wall in an insolated room--but hardwood floors and songs bring life. A hallway party, groovin tea and whiskey. We get to dream again. Our friends are here, we are here, burgeoning." - God?

Artist: RUNNING
Title: Frizzled
Format: 7"
Label: God?
Country: USA
Price: $6.00
"Equal parts shamble-dance and noise-pop, Running drive relentlessly while shouting their HI-larious lyrics (we think) with vigor from the bottom of a well of cheap verb. With serriform guitar racing with the vocs for most-fucked sounding and the bass and drums driving savagely forward -- like Totally Fired, for example -- find us a song with singing that better unites listener peril with lively dancefloor antics." - God?

Artist: SCRAPER
Title: S/T
Format: 7"
Label: God?
Country: USA
Price: $6.00
"Scrapers a band throwing curves off a skate-punk kind of mound. Just some kids hanging out on the scene who formed a band out of nowhere. Of the 101 flavors currently coursing through the undead corpse of punk, these guys spray a gritty combination of grind n groove that represents musical life at its most primal level. Then when youre sure they just started playing instruments the day before they recorded this, the overtones hit you -- Scrapers touched with Flipper and Urinals art-ghetto flair! You might even call it minimalist, and the lyrics whip a satirical, surrealist-psychedelic angle on the inevitable social/romantic blues of the songs. Coming from the filth with no kind of irony or apology, this sound, is a way of life -- and somehow, it sounds like fun! This six-song EP is Scrapers first vinyl release." -God?.

Artist: WHITE FENCE
Title: S/T
Format: LP
Label: God?
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Restoring a lost gem to the crown of White Fence, God? is bringing the first, self-titled, White Fence album back to the vanguard. White Fence originally came out on San Franciscos Make a Mess label; the CD is currently in print on Woodsist. But vinyl, you know? VINYL! A foolproof and ever-morphing approach to writing songs by bringing the freshness of lysergic 60s visions into the present day. As if thats all there was, which if you think about it... thats all there needs to be really. Tunes for us to sing, fun thoughts for us to have. So the tunes are there and they do everything great, but they warp and ripple as if something had gone awry with the tape machine." -God?.
