Artist: GARBES, RYAN
Title: Real Sugar
Format: 7"
Label: Arbor
Country: USA
Price: $6.50
"Ryan Garbes is the drummer of Iowa City bands such as Wet Hair, Dunebuggy, Trash Dog, and formerly Raccoo-oo-oon. His recordings under his own name represent a unique brand of solo multi-track recording with a seamless integrity; through a skillful use of instrumentation and recording technique, Garbes eschews notions of low fidelity for songs reminiscent of traditional American garage rock produced in the haze of an early 90s UK aesthetic. Genuine pop songs, cloaked in a comforting wash of reverb, as if Lou Reed had done a record for Creation; more ecstatic than obstructed Garbes voice is a refreshing one outside the continuum of contemporary four-track bedroom pop. In an edition of 300 copies with full color sleeve and printed labels by Ryan." -Arbor

Artist: GARBES, RYAN
Title: Sweet Hassle
Format: LP
Label: Hello Sunshine/Woodsist
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
"Sweet Hassle is the debut LP from Ryan Garbes (Wet Hair, Raccoo-oo-oon), fresh from his 7-inch on Arbor and his cassette on NNA. "A man in a small college town hours away from the influences that foul a musicians mind, Garbes has a lot of time to hang, especially in the recording studio. On Sweet Hassle, he incorporates heavy Velvets live bootleg vibes straight from the bedroom soundboard, with a touch of melodic electronic drone and a Byrds dusting." -Hello Sunshine/Woodsist “Garbes conjures boggling galactic plinking and trippy interlocking organ tones that make the sound of some sort of benevolent universal energy at work. When the vocals emerge, it becomes an alien hymn, used for space travel through the astral plane, of course.” -Foxy Digitalis
