LUMBERER



LUMBERER is pleased to announce the release of their self-titled debut album. Conceived several years ago during a weekend in DC, assembled over time and across great distance, and now finally realized, this album sees two former bandmates reunite to create something altogether new. Ted (The Mad Dogs, Obstruction) and Mike (bessie, The Catatonics, the cuba five, emiLy, The Mad Dogs, Severinsen, etc.) first collaborated musically over two decades ago in the basements of northern Indiana. Keeping in the tradition of DIY, the band recorded and mixed this new effort entirely on their own, doing so virtually between Austin, TX and Alexandria, VA. Though it finds the pair perhaps unabashedly wearing their influences on their sleeves, the album remains uniquely representative of the two musicians themselves.

Available now on Bandcamp, Spotify, Amazon Music, Apple Music, and other streaming services.

July - Miami Street Sessions

When July went into Miami Street Studios to record "Bunny" with John Nuner for the sfumato campus band compilation CD, they also put a few more of their songs to tape at the same time. Here we have a copy of those recordings, ravaged by dubbing and cassette decay, but still pretty freaking great. July!

The Roadapples - yeah.

The Roadapples were an indie rock campus band in the mid 90s. Here's their first tape "yeah." and a review from the Observer. Perhaps someday, more of the story of this band will be told. In the meantime...

Mars Hill - Gone For Good

Mars Hill is a recent band from John Huston, and I must say, it's pretty special. I probably listened to this album five times straight through when they released it. Here's a video and the album is below.



Dougie - Big In Japan (video)

Mike Larmoyeux (seminally the man in 10 bands at the same time) is still in many bands at the same time. Dougie is one of them, and they have been known to gig around the DC area. Here is a lovely video for you to enjoy:

Plane Zero - S/T

Mike Larmoyeux (seminally the man in 10 bands at the same time) is still in many bands at the same time. Plane Zero is one one them, and they released their debut self-titled album back in 2018. From their Bandcamp page:
Stop whatever you're doing and keep reading this, because you're about to witness the release of the least anticipated album of 2018: Plane Zero's eponymous debut: "Plane Zero" by Plane Zero (#PlaneZero)! It's the album that you had no idea you couldn't live without. Reviews from around the world are already pouring in:
"Plane Zero is the weirdest thing that Mike Larmoyeux has ever done. Musically." -Robert Dahl
"You have to stop futzing around take this seriously or we're never going to finish the final mix. These phase shifts aren't going to modulate themselves." -David Lampp
"I'm not going to give you a quote for your ridiculous fake review conceit. Stop asking." -Taylor Dahl
"This isn't any weirder than emiLy." -Mike Larmoyeux
And now you can hear what all the fuss is about... right now.
