Tiny Mix Tapes has premiered the Hubble + Patrick Breiner track “Hubble Chase” in celebration of the released of the SOUNGS KOMPF!!
“In their most grandiose game of cat and mouse, Ben Greenbreg (Hubble) and Patrick Breiner present “Hubble Chase.” Patrick blowing channeled diddies on ya right ear. Ben shredding salad in ya left. Your mind crashing down at the center.”
Consequence of Sound has premiered Dirty Beaches version of “Lone Runner” from the SOUNGS KOMPF online! Here’s what they had to say:
“Recorded at Chicago’s Empty Bottle last September, this version stretches the original to even more brutal lengths, with eerie saxophone curls and a fire-in-the-pulpit, expletive-laden sermon from Hungtai.”
The new SOUNGS KOMPF comes out May 29, and is available for pre-order now on the SOUNGS Bandcamp page. Here’s the full tracklisting, with the video for the PC Worship track “Beach Scene (Figure It Out)” below:
The long-in-the works compilation is finally off at the presses!!
It’s called SOUNGS KOMPF, and features all new, previously unreleased, and alternate versions of songs from the extended SOUNGS family and friends. The compilation will be available in the next couple months on cassette and digital download.
Our boy Daniel Francis Doyle has been spending some time recording with his new trio in Austin, TX with Adam Jones (from Yellow Fever/Deep Time) behind the boards. They’re taking their time, but Daniel says things are going really well.
If you caught the group on tour last fall – where they played these new tunes alongside tight, funky, full-band versions of “There Are Two of You” and “Learning Things at School” (from his last full length, We Bet Our Money on You) – then you have an idea of how exciting this is! Either way, check out this live version of their new song “When Did You Leave Home” from a June Violitionist session.
The new Arnold’s Park cassette by Pterodactyl is out now! Arnold’s Park was originally issued last year by Deleted Art as a vinyl-only release. The audio for this version is newly remastered and features a previously-unreleased bonus track. Click here to order a limited-edition cassette (with silk-screened artwork and a download code), or click here to stream and download the album.
Pterodactyl start a six week tour this week in support of their upcoming album Spills Out (out 11/15 on Brah/Jagjaguwar). The band will have copies of Arnold’s Park and Spills Out, along with shirts, DVDs, and the rest of their back-catalog… sickening. Check them out in a town near you:

And here’s “Arnold’s Park” off the new tape for you to marinate on:
Arnold’s Park – one of two European-only vinyl-only 2010 EPs by Pterodactyl – will be reissued by SOUNGS on November 1st. All of the songs have been freshly remastered, and an outtake from the same time period (“For Nothing”) is included as a bonus track. The album will be available for digital download and as a limited-edition cassette (with silk-screened artwork and a high-quality download code) from this site and on the band’s upcoming North American tour.
Arnold’s Park was originally released by Deleted Art in Sweden. The EP explores the more psychedelic aspects of Pterodactyl’s sound, building expansive songs out of intimate soundscapes, or maybe it’s the other way around. In many ways, Arnold’s Park is the perfect predecesor to the groups upcoming album Spills Out (out 11/15 on Jagjaguwar) – it also features artwork from Otecki as well as the original version of “Allergy Shots” (which appears in a remixed form on the new album).
