From The HATE Noise:
The HATE Noise has just released a first-ever 'official' album. This album has been planned since about 2008. Various other projects have constantly got in the way, and three abandoned albums later, here it finally is. It is available as a pay-as-you-wish download on my bandcamp page
Mostly recorded on cassette 4-track, it's a 16-track collection (pared down from 40 potential songs) influenced equally by Guided By Voices, 60's surf music and The Cure. Oh, and Curtis Mayfield. I play everything from drums to clarinet, with a few guest appearances by The HATE Noise crew. Songfighters will recognize a few of these tracks for sure...RIYL: Getting high and crashing your car into a beachside cafe in the year 1985.
From Snappy & Floyd:
Art rap collective Snappy & Floyd have digitally released their debut full-length mixtape, Enter the Floyd, through their own labels Hay Ghey and Fresh New Hat, available via Bandcamp
. It includes two SONG FIGHT! songs and two NUR EIN! songs. Not necessarily recommended for a single continuous listening. Conveniently divided into two acts, consistng of ten tracks each. Free download without the option to pay.
From Jim of Seattle:
The first ever and possibly only ever Jim of Seattle album is finally out and available for sale! "We Are All Famous" can now be purchased on Green Monkey Records, through CD Baby, physical mailing, download, etc.
The album contains 17 songs of wildly diverse styles. Half of these are Song Fight entries re-recorded or re-imagined. All in all it represents 30 years of songwriting history, though the albums was completely re-recorded this past year.
