we (sleeping at last) just wanted to send a quick note to our friends to mention that we’ve decided to give out our new record “storyboards” for FREE for 3 days via NoiseTrade.. we’re suuuper excited about this! the hope, of course, being to get this album into as many new hands/ears as possible.
so, we’re writing to each of our pals to ask if there’d be any way you’d be willing to let some folks know about this? we would so appreciate your help in getting the word out. of course, noooo obligations whatsoever! we definitely don’t mean to impose, and we absolutely understand if you’d rather not.
the album’s up for free right now, via this link: www.noisetrade.com/sleepingatlast
and it’ll be up there ’til thursday (april 8th) at midnight.
thanks so much, guys!
much love,
ryan & dan – sleeping at last

It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.
