Artist: SHEARER, DYLAN
Title: Porchpuddles
Format: LP
Label: Empty Cellar
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"Empty Cellar Records is more than stoked to present the sophomore full-length LP by San Franciscos elusive pop wizard, DYLAN SHEARER, at once a continuation of his distinctive and infectious melodic sensibilities and an evolution, fully exploring the romance and isolation only hinted at in previous releases. "There is a new specter among us. Dylan Shearers throaty baritone seems to have been borne on the slow-moving winds off some far-away coast. Plaintive and honest, his voice recalls Syd Barrett, Bill Fay, Skip Spence, and others whose words and melodies never seemed in a rush to get anywhere, yet always arrived fully formed in the listeners ear nonetheless. Porchpuddles, Shearers second full length and first for San Franciscos hodge-podge Empty Cellar records, is rare in its perfect timelessness. Sounds are heard and understood perfectly, yet the combination of these sounds is beyond a simple pop understanding. Songs of longing and songs of seeming indifference are bedded together seamlessly. Perhaps, questions about the records origin and its mysterious creator will abound, for taken at face value, Porchpuddles has little to no recognizable counterpart in todays one-hit warehouse. Indeed, there is a new specter among us; let us all welcome in the ghost of the present."-Tim Cohen. This first pressing (limited to 500 copies) comes in a classic uncoated tip-on sleeve. All LPs include a high quality download of the full album plus seven bonus tracks!" - Empty Cellar.

Artist: SHEARER, DYLAN
Title: Planted/Plans
Format: LP
Label: Yik Yak
Country: USA
Price: $19.00
"Written, performed and recorded by Shearer in 2007, Planted/Plans is beautiful melancholic avant-pop informed by west coast luminaries such as Van Dyke Parks and Harry Partch. A nice follow-up to the Robert Martin LP (Yik Yak 013) from another Santa Cruz long-gone. Second edition of 100." -Yik Yak
