Well, this is a pretty wild release email for me. One more of my top ten favorite all time artists scratched off the bucket list.
If you are one of the people cruising into PIAPTK for the first time, please check out the rest of our catalog, there will definitely be some things that you will enjoy!
SM WOLF - Sorry Joint LP!
This album is a collection of EPs, singles, and B-sides spanning from 2013 to 2023. All songs written and recorded by Adam in various Indianapolis houses, on computer, and 4 and 8 track reel-to-reels.
S.M. Wolf has had several iterations over the years, but on this album the band is a combination of Adam Gross, Melanie Rau, Ben Leslie, Bryan Unruh, and Rachel Enneking. Not featured on the record, but equally loved current and former members, are BC Nelson, Adam Kuhn and James Furness.
MODEST MOUSE - Oats / Pumpkin Field
This was extremely unexpected. At 5:00 on 9/19/23 I Was having drinks with Modest Mouse across the street from the Rialto Theater where they were playing that night. Unprompted, Isaac said "We have these two weird songs we recorded at soundcheck last night, could you make some records for us to sell tonight?" I told him about the PIAPTK "Instant Merch Machine" Concept (previous releases from THe Fruit Bats, Oblivians/Reigning Sound, Spaceface, Arrington DiDionysio, SM Wolf, etc). He and Russell both drew onto a cocktail napkin, and my buddy Cash and I drove across Tucson to the studio and started pounding them out. 2 hours later, we were headed back to the venue with 72 copies for MM to sell that night. ANd the next day, we cut another 72 for PIAPTK to sell.
This is a one sided clear square with insert, limited to 144 copies. The two songs are more akin to the early Sad Sappy Sucker era weirdness than their more polished newer tracks, so please understand before you buy this that it is a weirdo rarity!
There is NO digital component to this. Analog only.
If you are a Modest Mouse fan and haven't bought the Jeremiah Green or Rudy Waltz (Eric Judy) CD/Vinyl Hybrid discs (CDs that will play on both your turntable AND in your cd player!), now is your chance! Also please check out the rest of our catalog!
