LABRYYYNTH: THE BAND
We are so excited to present the new recording project from members of Golden Boots and Dr. Dog.
Lathe Cut: Right now, we have a lathe cut single for the song "Wrecking Ball", which is a completely different recording/feeling than the one that ended up on the Album. This lathe cut will be a split release with Burger Records, and is limited to 50 copies. They will uniquely psychedelicly marble painted. HERE
LABRYYYNTH: LABRYYYNTH: This is the incredible debut from LABRYYYNTH. It will be available digitally on all Digital Retailers on Nov. 2nd, as well as on cassette from Burger Records and PIAPTK. Sometime in December, the LP will be available in unique 70s Taiwanese-style-bootleg packaging (guaranteed you don't have a modern record in packaging like this) from PIAPTK, Bleeding Gold, and Gray Sky Records. HERE
LABRYYYNTH: The T-Shirt - Just for giggles we made up about a dozen DIY style shirts. They are weird and very limited. HERE

WOODEN WAND: PIAPTK SINGLES 2006-2014
A Cassette Store 2014 Release! Wooden Wand and PIAPTK go back a long time, and we've released some really great records together. Many of those were weird singles that went out of print almost instantly. This cassette tape contains every track Wand has released on a PIAPTK single between 2006 and September of 2014. Ltd edition of 100. HERE
AMERICAN MONOXIDE's IN "FLIGHT MODE":
The solo project of Dimitri Manos (Dr. Dog, Golden Boots, LABRYYYNTH), American Monoxide is the unfettered freakiness of Dimitri's pop genius with no boundries imposed by other band members. Recorded in a couple of weeks in his home studio, In Flight Mode is a fractured pop masterpiece. Available to stream for a very limited time: https://soundcloud.com/americanmonoxide/sets/american-monoxides-in-flight-mode
Available on Cassette or CD, each disc comes wrapped inside of a beautiful American Monoxide Shop Rag (made by Shot By A Fan's Richard Santos). HERE
SOILD GOLD T-SHIRTS
The Great Soild Gold T-Shirt Crapshoot!
We bought a bunch of random colored T-shirts and put random color Ink on them. This is a very motley crew of T's... Some are new, some are gently used, some are pretty standard, some are sorta freaky, some are light, some are dark, some look pro, some look pretty janky.
Every one is different, so we can't list them all individually. You must be willing to let go of your desire to be in control of your own t-shirt destiny. Surrender yourself and your wardrobe fully to the whims of benevolent mail order man. You may feel free to request a color or simply light/bright/dark, but ultimately, your fate will be up to the mood of the all-powerful merch maven. HERE
KEITH JOHN ADAMS: ROUGHHOUSING LP
The fantastic new album from our favorite British BBC correspondent, Keith John Adams. Roughhousing is another LP crammed full of clever and witty pop gems from the best London tourguide I've ever had the pleasure to be guided by.
Get a free download of the Double A Side single, Music in my Feet here: http://keithjohnadams.bandcamp.com/album/music-in-my-feet-no-room-double-a-side
This is a co-release from Red Wig Records (Amsterdam), Vacilando '68 (London, who have released great records from our Tucson via France buddies, Naim Amor and Marianne Dissard), and PIAPTK's bosom buddy record label slash book publisher, Gray Sky Micro Press. HERE

LAST CHANCE SECTION:
Over the last few months we have been slowly and quietly selling out of several titles. And, there are quite a few more that we are almost out of, so I've started a new section of the website called "LAST CHANCE" that tags all the items that are down to 15 or less copies. Just so that you are warned. Also, this is your last chance to buy MP3 copies of most of the other releases that are out of print in physical format. Within the next week, I will be moving all of those releases to the OUT OF PRINT DISCOGRAPHY section of the site, and they will no longer be available digitally.
