Fake Flowers

Fake Flowers Fake Flowers "Fake Flowers is the first solo album I released.  The project started as a noise tape I did with my cousin Ernesto Mercado around 1999 or 2000 when our band Anonymous Inc's first album was being wrapped up.  Initially, I wanted to make this album very limited but it ended up becoming a fully pressed, and released record in 2004 (almost a year after its completion).  Fake Flowers is old, lo-fi, sometimes immature and sometimes very weird, but it was an important step in my musical progression and I still have a lot of love for it now nearly 5 years after its release and nearly 10 years after its inception. Fake Flowers hasn't been officially available for years, but now in 2009 it will be re-mastered and re-released by Squids Eye Records on cd and vinyl! Stay tuned."

Paranoid Castle - Welcome To Success

STREET DATE » 08/25/2014 Backed by the lush, vivid beats of Canadian producer Factor, Bay Area emcee Kirby Dominant ponders the perils of self-actualization on their third LP together as Paranoid Castle. Are the trappings of success smoke screens for inner turmoil or are they success itself? Do the drugs and women provide joy or fleeting escape? How long can one keep clawing out at temporary pleasures in the wake of unresolved anguish?
 

Sadistik - ULTRAVIOLET

STREET DATE » 07/01/2014 On Ultraviolet (Fake Four, Inc.), Sadistik closes his eyes tight and reaches out towards the peripheries of perception through introspection and psychedelic escapism, transcribing the vivid images crawling on the dark purple walls of his Seattle studio. The day after he finished recording 2013’s critically acclaimed Flowers For My Father, Sadistik (born Cody Foster) began writing the new record with a head full of acid, left field 60s & 70s cinema and palpable frustration with the world around him. Falling somewhere on the spectrum between the confessionals of Atmosphere and dark heart of Cage, and inspired by the delivery and ethos of the legendary Eyedea, Seattle-based emcee Sadistik has been a force on the indie scene for the better part of a decade, opening for artists such as Lupe Fiasco and collaborating with the likes of Sage Francis, Astronautalis and Ceschi. He began Ultraviolet as an exercise in creativity, pushing himself to never take a day off and make the best album of his career for the second year in a row.
 

Moodie Black - NAUSEA

STREET DATE » 04/22/2014 Long before Kanye West appropriated noise rap to create his new sound, independent artists such as Moodie Black were busy perfecting an art built of swelling distortion & uncomfortable energy. Although the group still cherishes the sound of static, now on their first full length album, NAUSEA, they've developed an extension of noise rap based on industrial yet melodic soundscapes and have embraced minimalism. This is more of a sonic journey than a kick in the face.
