I've got bad news and i've got some good news regarding the new Treasure Mammal LP "Grammy Nominated"
BAD NEWS - Due to some hiccups with the pressing plant, the release date for this record has been pushed back to November 7th which is also the 17 year anniversary for the Treasure Mammal music and performance project.
GOOD NEWS - We released a new song from the album for you to stream, its called "Team Work" and it was co-written by Owen Evans who you will know from the indie pop bands ROAR and Asleep In The Sea (who our sub label "Heirloom Records" just did a digital release of their album Avenue).
Anyway, check it out. Its a fun inspirational song that hopefully makes your day a little better. Make sure to get your pre-orders in, those will be shipped out as soon as the records arrive in my custody (which should be mid-October) The Gold version that comes with a cassingle of "Online Dating" is running low, so pick those up ASAP.
The Slugs "Don't Touch Me, I'm Too Slimy!" has gotten some great reviews recently from Maximum Rock N' Roll and Yellow Green Red. Plus WFMU has been playing songs from this 7" in heavy rotation since it's release last month! I'm really proud of them and thankful for the good press and for all of you who have downloaded and purchased the album over the past few weeks. And if you haven't heard it yet, you're missing out.
"Worn Out" Mix Tape
A couple weeks ago I ruined two of my favorite pairs of pants and rather than throw them away I decided to make mix tapes with them. “Worn Out” is a mix tape made up of songs that have made a big impact on me, that have also come out over the last 2 years. Mix tapes range from 50ish to 60ish minutes and come in random colored cassette shells. Every mix at least features songs from Whitmore Thomas, Clipping, Special Interest, The Ex-Bats, Sailor Poon, Bruce Lee Band, Jeffrey Lewis, Crush Material, Barry, The Slugs, Yairms, Mooey Moobau, Jpegmafia and Kitten Forever most also features at least 7+ more songs. Anyway, it’s a fun mix. If you live in the USA it’s only $5, $12 if you live anywhere else. That includes shipping. It pretty much just covers the cost for everything. Not looking to profit off this, just spread some joy, help the post office a little bit and not let things go to waste.If you want a copy, you can DM @related_records on Instagram.
