Artist: AMPS FOR CHRIST/WOODS
Title: Split
Format: LP
Label: Shrimper
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Shrimper Records has a long-standing tradition, going back to the early years of the label, of its artists collaborating with one another-from John Davis and Lou Barlows Folk Implosion to Franklin Bruno and John Darnielles Extra Glenns / Lens, with dozens of other examples in between. This split between WOODS and AMPS FOR CHRIST began as an idea for a 7-inch single, but grew into a full-length LP featuring four songs by each artist and an additional collaborative track. While Woods and Amps for Christ explore a lot of the same land mass, each turns over different rocks and shards of glass. And even though the two work independently from one another, listeners will hear the sublime manner in which the LPs two sides (or the harsh, tinny digital skree of the MP3s for you 20th century types, dig your irony) complement one another both musically and lyrically. Check out the ESP interplay of HENRY BARNES and JEREMY EARL when together or separated by coasts." - Shrimper.

Artist: BABIES
Title: S/T
Format: Cass
Label: Shrimper
Country: USA
Price: $7.00
"In 2008, KEVIN MORBY moved into CASSIE RAMONEs small apartment in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, for a few months. Morby, who plays bass in WOODS, and Ramone, who sings and plays guitar in VIVIAN GIRLS, wanted to start a band. They both missed the sweaty loft shows they used to play before their bands moved on to larger venues and longer tours. JUSTIN SULLIVAN, who had played with Ramone in BOSSY, began practicing with them on drums, and THE BABIES debuted as a three-piece in March 2009 at Dead Herring, their friends loft in Brooklyn. They played a few times before asking NATHAN STARK, formerly of BENT OUTTA SHAPE, to join on bass, and the full lineups first shows were that summer. The Babies wrote music and played shows in fits and spurts, whenever they all happened to be in town for a week. They recorded their self-titled debut album with JARVIS TAVENIERE at Rear House Studios, which doubles as Morbys home; his vocals were done in his own bedroom. (Taveniere, Morbys bandmate in Woods, has also recorded Real Estate, Vivian Girls and Woods.) The debut follows 7-inch singles on Make a Mess and Wild World. The Babies songs are roughed-up jewels cut from the same cloth as Hazlewood and Sinatra, The Velvet Underground and Nico, Pisces and Linda Bruner, and other dream marriages. Limited to 200 copies on cassette." -Shrimper

Format: Cass
Label: Shrimper
Country: USA
Price: $10.00
"Hometown performance by REFRIGERATOR in March of this year, their first live performance following lead singer ALLEN CALLACIs successful heart transplant the preceding Spring. In the spirit and the ridiculous fetishized nature of the day, each cassette has been lovingly hand dubbed over an existing prerecorded release, hand folded and hand jobbed by DENNIS CALLACI, just like in the old days. Whos music will tail out at the end of each side on your version? Triumph? Martin Briley? The Headpins? No two are alike. Limited edition hand numbered/colored edition of 150." -Shrimper.

Artist: SHEPARD, JIM & CHARLES CICIRELLA
Title: The Dispossessed
Format: CDR
Label: Shrimper
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"This entire session was recorded as you hear it - no planning or disgusting egos intervening. I came in from Cleveland, Jim already had music laid down (except for typewriter, acoustic guitar, violin, and aerosol can which were laid down live and this includes dead traffic you hear throughout the recording) I listened through headphones while reading poetry that in large part was written either that day or previous afternoon. This CD is released as an honest & quite sublime testament to Jims diverse artistic nature temperament & how when the chemistry is good and stinking, like an over satiated sun, anything can occur. Jim and I were and still very much are caterpillar astronauts and Ill miss being his friend and foil forever.... onward forward infinite." - Charles Eric Cicirella.

Title: Smooth Sounds: The Future Hits of Wckr Spgt
Format: Cass
Label: Shrimper
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"All of them sparkling clean digital hand-jobs (of late) got me to thinking about the years I spent renting a room above a former farmers garage, dubbing tapes when my better-minded friends were going to college and/or fucking with crystal meth. Time flies (except when you are constantly typing in 0s and 1s to get someones laptop to cum) and certainly somewhere, a 16-year-old kid is online awaiting some hilarious critiques of the 20th anniversary Shrimper compilation Smooth Sounds: The Future Hits of Wckr Spgt double-CD: 36 exclusive songs specifically written for this project by Wckr Spgt and then given out blindly to the artists participating. With close to 200 releases under our belt and hundreds of artists that have recorded for the label, it was near impossible to choose bands for this project, so blindly into the depths of the third circle went we. "Smooth Sounds features key Shrimper acts (Soul-Junk, Sentridoh, Joy, The Mountain Goats, Simon Joyner, Jad Fair), recordings by artists from the surrounding environs that influenced the label (Norma Tanega, Kurt Ross, John Harrelson) and over a dozen new bands to keep intact the spirit of what a Shrimper compilation is supposed to be. The first pressing features covers lovingly hand-decorated by artists who have recorded for the Shrimper label, as well as extensive liner notes by Franklin Bruno. There are a number of festivals set to take place on July 24th, the official 20th anniversary of Shrimper, in Southern California, Virginia, England and New York, with all proceeds to benefit local art collectives. Keep your eyes peeled for more guerilla events that correspond with this release." --Dennis Callaci.

Artist: WOODS
Title: At Rear House
Format: CD
Label: Shrimper
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"WOODS began in the woods, at the foot of Bear Mountain. In the earliest days it was a collaborative improvisational group with two core members and several guests, known as "Woodsists." Shortly thereafter, JEREMY EARL & CHRISTIAN DEROECK of MENEGUAR (Troubleman Ltd.) emerged from the woods, dusted themselves off, and began to walk upright. The two woodsists immersed themselves in human culture, learned to craft a melody, to wield a tambourine, to construct a crude phonograph from spare bicycle parts. They learned the value of a cassette. Earl and DeRoeck returned to the woods and shared their newfound knowledge with the other woodsists. At Rear House is the result, songs and improvisations by outsiders, inspired by the human experience. Earl is also the Fuck It Tapes, Woodsist label chief." - Shrimper.
