Dead Broke Short-run Tape Series 4 is FINALLY OUT NOW!We've got 3 amazing tapes of sick music that all definitely deserve a release.
Buy em all now in: DISTRO
HEADLINES- "MMXVII" EP Tape
Five new songs from Brooklyn's newest pop-punk outfit, one might even say "supergroup". Keyboard driven pop-punk melodies fronted by the lovely Marisa Bergquist (Chandeli'ers, Besties), backed up by Jeff Cunningham on guitar (Bride & Tunnel), Robbie Swartwood on bass (Off With Their Heads) and Pat Schramm on drums (Latterman, Young Ladies, Tender Defender+). Recorded by our very own Phil Dougbagg of Chic. Why are you still reading this? Go get it. Digital available on Spotify, Apple & all services. (Tape includes download code) First press limited to 30 copies on Silver Cassettes.
LIFE HACKS / AWFUL MAN- Split Tape
The last remaining Awful Man (ex-Witches With Dicks) songs finally see a release! These punk gems were supposed to be on a split 12" with another rad Boston band, Ex-Planets. Well, both bands broke up after a long time of procrastinating the release, so we canned it. Now they're finally out, splitting a side of a tape with essentially the same band, Life Hacks. Which is the new band from the Awful Man/WWD camp that probably broke up before I even put this up. But they rule & these songs are what you'd expect, only a little slower & more melodic, like old Clash or Oi! stuff. Digital available on bandcamp. (Tape includes download code) First press limited to 30 copies on Black/White split Cassettes.
SOMERSET THROWER / MOUTH- Split EP
Two of Long Island's best bands bring two new songs each for this dope split. This was supposed to be 7" vinyl, but again- it got canned & became this short-run tape. Somerset Thrower throw down 2 of their best tracks, leading up to their "Godspeed" LP coming on Dead Broke this Summer. Members of: Agent, Polygon, Halfway to Hell Club playing 90's style alt-punk/indie jams. MOUTH are back with two skull-shattering sludged out tunes to melt yer goddamn ears off. Including members of Sister Kisser, Sainthood Reps & Fellow Project. Digital available on bandcamp. (Tape includes download code)
First press limited to 30 copies on Orange Cassettes.

NEW RELEASES AVAILABLE from Dead Broke:
GIANT PEACH- "But You Made Me Such A Beautiful Thing" LP
Brooklyn, NY (by way of Long Island) shoegaze indie/rock/grunge/pop band's finest work yet. Follow-up to their last album, "Tarantula" on Don Giovanni Records. New York's Giant Peach are set to release their sophomore album... while their previous work opted for an indie punk sound, their latest album offers a scenic approach to their sonic splendor, open and sprawling over the course of a warm and meditative hour. There's a ton of detail and nuance, with the band exploring their surroundings and using the studio to push new territory previously unexplored. Limited "Ocean Blue" vinyl available! (*Digital download includes 2 exclusive bonus tracks!)
HEAVY POCKETS- "Pure Evil" LP
The third and final Heavy Pockets LP. Amazing indie/pop rock & punk from NH. going out with a bang. Their best batch of songs to date. The band is calling it quits, but we just had to get in on this release. Limited to 200 copies. Hand glued jackets and a 16 page zine written by Shayla. LP comes w/ download code. Pay-what-you-want download here:
BEDFORD FALLS- "Send More Bees" LP
Bedford Falls are back with third album "Send More Bees", follow up to 2012's "Elegant Balloons". This new album sees the band capture the power & grit of their live show more than their previous recording outings, and sounds like the crashing of (fuzzy) guitar driven indie punk rock. This is the Welsh take on that Dinosaur Jr/Husker Du/Superchunk/Moving Targets/Superchunk sound, with a healthy nod to Big Star- but in a sea of very ordinary bands attempting this genre, BF absolutely nail it. More than worth the six year wait! (Co-release w/ Boss Tuneage & Brassneck Records) Digital release: 3/30.
FIFTEEN- "The Choice Of A New Generation" Reissue LP/CD/TAPE
Definitive reissue by Berkeley, California-based punk band, FIFTEEN. From the ashes of east bay legends, Crimpshrine, came Fifteen. In summer of 1992, the band toured the US & Canada, and recorded their second album, "The Choice of A New Generation". Originally released on CD/LP in 1992 on Lookout! Records. Gloriously restored & remastered from the original reel-to-reel master tapes by Carl Saff at Saff Mastering. Featuring cover art in full color for the very first time.
CANADIAN RIFLE- "Peaceful Death" LP
Chicago greats Canadian Rifle are back with their 3rd full-length album. Since 2006 these punk vets have been blasting out their blend of rough & ear-splitting melodic punk rock that is unmatched. Definitely contender for record of the year. In a world of indie grunge posers, Canadian Rifle are back again to show you midwestern punk rock is still alive & well. Members of Ambition Mission, Fourth Rotor, Sorespot & more. (Comes w/ download) 500 pressed. First 100 on Limited Magenta vinyl.
EIGHT- S/T II 7" E.P.
New 3-piece indie band from Philadelphia, PA. consisting of Mimi Gallagher (NONA & Year of Glad), Cat Park (Amanda X) & Pat Brier (Queen Jesus, Three Man Cannon). Dreamy, melodic and grungey indie pop-punk. Your new favorite band. They sure are ours. Limited press of 300. (200 Black, 100 Teal vinyl.)
YOUNG LADIES- S/T 7" E.P.
Four new songs from Brooklyn's pop-punk super?group. Ex-members of Monikers, Discount, Latterman & more. Swingin' & melodic pop-punk with a classic old-school rock and roll vibe. Poppy and good as hell. Artwork by SUPERJAIL! creator Christy Karacas! Limited press of 300 on Black vinyl.
FIFTEEN- "Swain's First Bike Ride" LP/CD/Cass
Definitive reissue by Berkeley, California-based punk band, FIFTEEN. From the ashes of east bay legends, Crimpshrine, came Fifteen. "Swain's First Bike Ride" is their first full-length album, recorded in December 1990. Originally released on 12" vinyl in 1991 on Lookout! Records. CD edition contains the band's self-titled EP from the previous year as bonus tracks, just like the Lookout original disc, which was released a year later in 1992. Gloriously restored & remastered from the original reel-to-reel master tapes by Carl Saff at Saff Mastering.
FIFTEEN- S/T 7" E.P.
Definitive reissue by Berkeley, California-based punk band, FIFTEEN. From the ashes of east bay legends, Crimpshrine, came Fifteen. Fifteen embarked on their first tour in the summer of 1989, and recorded their debut EP in April 1990 for Lookout! Records. Gloriously restored & remastered from the original reel-to-reel master tapes by Carl Saff at Saff Mastering.
GREENSLEEP- "Cheap Headphones" LP
New York's 90's indie/punk vets, Greensleep are back after a quick 18 year break. The band has quite the interesting story, being a long island indie/punk staple in the 90's, with releases on Alone Records, as well as Long Island's Motherbox Records. Since breaking & recently reuniting, they have delivered a slew of new songs with their "Summer Single Series" & "Things We Didnt Know EP", with new member Scott Martin (of Silent Majority/Mind Over Matter). Self-described as "barrel aged indie rock", Greensleep are back with their second full-length album of all brand new material, show-casing that some good things get even better.
