Title: Brattleboro Is Flooding
Format: LP

Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Luke Csehak sounds like a man who has had some troubles. But like the weird alchemy that made Todd Rundgrens early 70s sides so crucial, this new Lentils album manages to work as a damn-near-joyful explosion of (or maybe from) pent-up emotion. And it sounds beautiful. As he demonstrated ably with his former band, Happy Jawbone, Lukes creative engine is a weirdly canted turbine of distemper. His best songs are always moving along and falling apart at the same time, and so it is here. Like all top-rated generators of skew-assed roots-pop, the Lentils never neglect hooks no matter how wiggly the music gets. Just when you start to figure everythings gone to total chaos, a melody rises from the urk to grab your aural worm and dive for the bottom. There are moments here that recall everyone from Big Star to the Grifters to some drunk guy who really likes Dion. It manages to have a continuously riveting folk-rock center no matter which direction it turns. And man, it turns plenty. We suggest you do the same" - Byron Coley, 2015. Edition of 300. Co-released with BUFU Records.

Artist: LENTILS, THE
Title: My Pillow Lava Part One: My Deaf Son
Format: LP
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"First physical evidence of the "band" that entered the room when Happy Jawbone departed. And its a beaut. Pressed on clear vinyl with a silkscreen on the blank side (a la Albert Aylers Bells on ESP), packed with a 16-page book of Luke Csehaks notebook fragments, the record is a compendium of ideas that were once lost but are now found. For live performance, The Lentils have now assumed some sort of physical presence worthy of their sounds wide hips. But at the time of this recording, the project was solo Luke. He did the art for the vinyl, played all the music (apart from some Chris Weisman support on one track and some tootling from hippie prepsters from Putney) and poured a lot of weird soul into the effort. It is a goddamn stellar production. The music ranges from "The Wrong Song," perhaps the most blasted evidence yet of the mythical border that separate Brattleboro and Dunedin (a spectacular crevice filled with broken glass), to "The Wrong Wings," which has a jug band sound that would make Norman Greenbaum beam with pride. "Wings" even has some little psych guitar filigree that is pure Petaluma 72. Genius. Theres also the strange-strings attack of "Roaring Milk" and the strangled Wooden Wand approach of "A Pocket Full of Blood," which has the best Beck lyrics not written by Beck since "MTV Makes me Want to Smoke Crack." With My Pillow Lava Part One: My Deaf Son, Luke has created a kind of new lonesome stranger archetype that is both more lonesome and far, far stranger than any archetype that precedes it. What a treat for you. Edition of 200 copies." - Feeding Tube.
