Healing Potpourri join RFC, Blanket Of Calm out 6/12, pre-orders available now.
Healing Potpourri want to create songs that make you feel good. It’s not often that we take a moment to appreciate music that specifically exists to comfort and rejuvenate –music that aims to sound as pleasant as its intentions - but that’s exactly what Healing Potpourri achieves on the new full-length, Blanket of Calm.

Varsity Fine Forever out 5/29, 'Runaway' video out now
From the very start of “Runaway,” the opening track on Varsity’s third album 'Fine Forever', it’s clear that the Chicago quintet has morphed into something new.

Georgia Maq Pleaser LP is out now!
Georgia Maq has established herself in recent years as the singer and guitarist of Melbourne, Australia indie rock band Camp Cope, whose sophomore album How to Socialise and Make Friends won widespread acclaim, topping a slew of 2018 end of year lists including NPR, Pitchfork, Billboard, Bandcamp, Stereogum, The Guardian, and Brooklyn Vegan. The 8 tracks of Georgia's first solo release Pleaser shimmer and pulsate, calling to mind pop artists like Lorde, Robyn, Charli XCX and Gwen Stefani. “I took more time to record the songs and play around with them, and I liked that because I could change things and experiment more,” Maq says, continuing “I think the pressure of working with other people drove me to finish the songs, which I hated but also loved because it’s nice to be challenged."
RFC signs Glass Beach “the first glass beach album” streaming now, in stores 1/24/20
