A NEW RELEASE!!!
So excited to announce the next release on Related Records! A cassette tape of music (mostly covers) by Jay Shingle
If you are unfamiliar with Jays work, he is a comedian (very awkward sort of anti-comedy) and a writer. He runs the @ordinarypeoplememes Instagram account and writes for @realoregano and @thehardtimesnews
I’ve been following him for just over a year now and noticed him doing these really great, funny, lofi covers on his Instagram stories. I shared one of the videos and said “I would love to see these covers on a tape” and jay did not hesitate to DM and be like “let’s do this!” So it’s finally coming together and will be released in August.
Check out the first single a cover of Pavement’s “range life”. Something that @jamesfella says “is completely nuts” LISTEN HERE!
I FINALLY GOT MY COMPUTER BACK!!! So I am finally able to make these mix tapes for people who donate $20 or more to unshelteredphx. They are a mutual aid organization who is helping our houseless neighbors in Arizona this summer. They have a goal of buying 1,000 water coolers for this marginalized group and continually does drives for tents, tarps, first aid and other supplies regularly. So far we have raised almost $300! I still have about a dozen tapes left. Donate $20+ to unshelteredphx and show me the receipt and I will send you a 40+ minute mix tape of inspiring punk music that has helped and inspired me throughout my life.
