Artist: MANTLES
Title: Dont Lie (aka Trust)/Secret Heart
Format: 7"
Label: Mt. St. Mtn.
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"With the deceptively determined surge of a sleepy glacier, The Mantles have been quietly and slowly perfecting their trademarked dark n dirge pop sound over the past few years. Starting as a trio, the band recorded their Dulc-i-Tone single with the mysterious & unreliable Cram-Ro production team. The band then dug themselves out of the Cram-Ro shit-morass for a batch of sunnier sounds courtesy Papercuts Jason Quever, two songs of which make up their forthcoming Mt. St. Mtn single. Soon after this session, the band lost a bass player but simultaneously absorbed both halves of the Cram-Ro team (including the half that sometimes gets Personal wink-wink), and its this current four-piece incarnation that recorded the upcoming Siltbreeze full-length album with Gris Gris Greg Ashley. Reviewers & showgoers alike regularly struggle without success to pin down the Mantles sound, though the Paisley Underground scene somehow seems to come up a lot, and though reviewers have an affinity for the words New and Zealand when describing the Mantles, band members insist that Mantles songwriting mainman and Graeme Downes-lookalike Michael O. has no idea what Flying Nun is other than a goofy TV show, nor is he familiar with that Slitbree label people keep talking about." - Mt.

SOLD OUT

Artist: STANDARD TRIBESMEN
Title: Waiting/Young Lovers/Luv In A Car
Format: 7"
Label: Mt.St.Mtn.
Country: USA
Price: $7.00
"What started as the one-man Sores side-project of Julian Elorduy IV (MAYYORS), Standard Tribesmen solidified as a skronky, rock n roll 5-piece (featuring MAYYORS Chris Woodhouse on bass) that crashed about Northern California for a couple of years before imploding. Luckily Woodhouse put a smoldering handful of tracks to tape, three of which are available on this very limited slab of wax. Packaging consists of a hand-punched outer cover with a 2 color offset insert featuring artwork by Jay Howell." - Mt.St.Mtn. "If you plotted The Sonics, the Contortions, and Feedtime on a graph, the Standard Tribesmen are somewhere in between that triangle, shading a bit toward the Sonics corner." - DJ Rick. Limited to 300 copies.

Artist: WHINES, THE
Title: Shootinhead
Format: 7"
Label: Mt. St. Mtn.
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"Hot on the heels of their awesome debut LP Hell To Play, weve got two exclusive tracks on limited edition wax. THE WHINES have been on our radar for some time, with KARIANNE hopping in on drums for EAT SKULL for all of ten minutes and their debut 7-inch making rounds a year or two ago. Previously backed by alternating members of the aforementioned Portland faves, The Whines have solidified a touring band and are hitting the road in May. They offered us these two reverb soaked noise pop tracks, one new and one alternate recording off the Hell To Play LP. Layers of over-saturated tape hiss, as well as Kariannes sweet-to-sad-to-sexy vocals, glue this hot little single together. A dreary Portland Sunday with a hangover put to wax just for you. Limited edition of 300 copies." - Mt. St. Mtn.
