“This album [SORCS 80] was a self imposed ambitious project for us
[OSEES]. Something to kick in the creative flow. The last few years,
having been a challenging time in general, felt like a good time for
a pivot. The last two albums were so guitar and keyboard centric, I
wanted a weird and fun set of parameters for us to work with. I demo’d
everything at home on cassette four track (harkening back to simpler
times) using drum loops, and just had at it ’til I had a pile of ‘songs.’
“Tom [Dolas] and I chose one sound each using synths and created a

range of three octaves of that sample, then loaded them into Roland SPD-
SX samplers and learned the transcribed songs using drum sticks. The

idea was to change the way we wrote and to have four people along the
front of the stage essentially playing percussion. So no guitar, no keys.
“As we were recording I kept thinking how the sounds, when paired up,
sounded a bit like brass. So, we added a saxophone horn section to round
out the horniness of the sound with a bit of reedy bell tones. Thanks to
Cansfis Foote and Brad Caulkins on tenor and baritone saxophones.
“Sort of a Dexy’s Midnight Runners meets Von LMO meets The
Flesh Eaters meets the Screamers kinda punk junk. Poppy and
hooky, heavy at times. Sort of vacuous and maybe a bit sci-fi in sound.
Boneheaded in riff and heady in lyrics. Recorded at Stu-Stu-Studio by
me on eight track 1/4-inch tape. So pretty hot and raw. Lots to write
about today. A lot of these lyrics were taken from things people said
in passing about taking on life right now that stuck with me. Things
that made me reflect. Things that made me laugh. Things that made
me WTF. Some folks are kind, genuine and give you love and energy.
Some are greedy manipulative ghouls who hang off your veins. You
must be strong, composed and take care of yourself. Be self aware
and check your mind for cracks. Learn to relax and be well. There are
moments of beauty and redemption. It’s not all bad news and there’s
always hope. People continue to surprise me one way or another.
Anyhow, hope you enjoy and good luck out there.” —John Dwyer

Shipping, Returns & Cancellations

SHIPPING:

We ship Monday through Friday. Orders typically ship within 24-72 hours. Tracking is sent to the email you provide at check out and may take a few days to become active.

Any items ordered with Pre-Orders will be held until they can all ship together. If you need in stock items faster please order them seperately.

RETURNS:

Returns are only accepted on damaged or defective items. Return requests must be made within 7 days of delivery. Please save the original packaging.

If you own a Crosley, Victrola or any other lower end turntable that has no ability to adjust the weight of the tone arm and are experiencing skipping on a new record please try the "Penny Trick". Simply place a penny on the top of the cartidge and it should provide enough weight to resolve your issues. While a great entry to the world of vinyl we do recommend upgrading to a turntable with a tone arm that can be adjusted as this issue will randomly occur. We do not take returns in these cases.

Resellers: If you are buying from us for resale we honestly don't mind. However, please don't panic if something you bought suddenly isn't flipable for more money and then try to return stuff to us because you feel like you made a bad investment choice. Despite our outsized reputation we're a small shop, not amazon. Absorbing these costs adds up on places like ours. Plus a little patience always tends to pay off.

CANCELLATIONS:

Due to an increasing number of payment processors no longer returning transaction fees to sellers on cancelled orders and rising labor costs any orders or pre-orders that need to be cancelled before shipment will be assessed a 5% cancellation/restocking fee on the order total including shipping and any other taxes or fees associated with the order.

Thank you for your understanding.
