NOW TAKING ORDERS! THIS WILL SHIP MID-JUNE; ANY ADDITIONAL ITEMS ORDERED WILL BE SHIPPED THEN AS WELL
M'lady's Records is incredibly proud to introduce the debut album from
RUBY PINS, borne out of the dreams and hard work of Lillian Maring.
Written over the past three years, recorded on an old computer with just
one SM58 microphone, and played almost entirely by Ms. Maring, these
songs sound like almost nothing else we've heard.
Inspired by dreams friends have had about her, and informed by the spirits
of Eno, Jacques Dutronc, and Catherine Ribeiro, this record has a deep
individualistic streak, and imagination by the ton. There's an other-
worldliness to the album, the kind of echoes that can be felt usually in
certain films, a special kind of logic that gets under one's skin. Recorded
mostly in the beautiful town of Port Townsend, Washington in the
summer of 2012, Lillian enlisted some instrumental help on certain songs
from Hannah Lew (her bandmate in the estimable and much-beloved
GRASS WIDOW), Fiona Campbell, Jen Weisberg and Brett Lyman, but
this is really 'a solo trip', as Neil Young once put it so eloquently.
Recommended for irregulars and bedroom visionaries and anyone with
fire in their hearts. Cover art by Penelope Partridge and Lillian Maring.
Available in the popular LP, cassette, and mp3 formats.

MLADYS 7 - MAKE-UP - "I WANT SOME" 2 x LP $18
BRAND NEW AND GALVANIZING BELIEVERS WORLDWIDE
Best of order, people, best of order... let’s ‘ave a bit of ’ush
now. It’s the return of the gospel yeh-yeh, that untouchable
sound that can’t be contained! Rejoice, ye philistines of little
faith, you harlequins that stumble through night after night
searching for liberation. Liberation is at hand!
“I Want Some”! Indeed you do, but what is it? Two albums,
four sides of collected singles and an evolutionary chronicle
of the most exciting and visionary group of the last epoch,
the MAKE-UP. Commonly mistaken for a “soul group”,
imagine instead the four horsemen of the apocalypse in tailored
outfits playing incendiary songs that make you dance and
make you think. Formed out of the ashes of NATION OF
ULYSSES and CUPID CAR CLUB, MAKE-UP had a wild
five year run of almost non-stop smash singles, recorded for
various global underground cells, or “record companies”.
This is truly the most definitive MAKE-UP (double!) album, available again for
the first time in over ten years on vinyl!
Thrill to the early blasts of feral energy: “Blue Is Beautiful”,
“We’re Having a Baby”, “Untouchable Sound”, “This Is...
Young Vulgarians”, “Substance Abuse”! Hear their seamless
transition into wild elegance borne out of playing hundreds of
concerts for a crazed and devout band of zealots: “Walking On
the Dune”, “I Want Some”, “The Choice”! 23 reasons to get
down, in the midnight hour, and every hour!
CAN I HEAR YOU SAY “YEAH”?
Remastered by Bob Weston at Chicago Mastering Service,
and sleeved in a beautiful tip-on gatefold jacket, M’lady’s is
very proud and excited to release these gems back into the
wilderness. THE MAKE-UP! THE MAKE-UP!

BRAND NEW IN THE SHOP AND READY TO SHIP!
Our second sortie into the wild land of paraphernalia (yes, that's spelled correctly.) This bag is for all the revolutionaries out there. SOIS JEUNE ET TAIS TOI.

Lovingly screen-printed by our friends at Olympia Screen, and printed on soft natural canvas on bags that are made in the USA. Large enough to hold 20 or 25 LPs, or books, or art supplies, or whatever else your heart desires. We just carried home almost 40 LPs from Mississippi Records in one of these l'il babes, so they check out in the field! Our homage to the radicals all around the world. Paint a picture, write a manifesto, turn yr mind upside down!
Shocking and exciting debut from these three young fire-breathers. Equal parts psychedelic cumbia and house show thrash, Fabiola, Ana, and Brisa are totally one of the best live groups we've seen in years, and brand new on the scene! Transcendent Los Hijos Del Sol cover on the A-side, original shredding on the flip, all wonderful, GET PSYCHED.
They have set the West Coast on fire, and by all accounts have had people foaming at the mouth. SAY HELLO TO HYSTERICS. Six insane HC blasts, 1981-style, Wilson Center-style. The sound of total dissatisfaction FULL NORTH AMERICAN TOUR AUGUST 2012, see our "tour dates" section above!
They were one of the best bands we can recall seeing. It was like someone took the most exciting bits of 1977 and 1992 and 2006 and squashed them together. That was Finally Punk, from Austin, Texas. 26 songs, compiling all three of their singles, plus two previously unreleased songs, both of them covers (NIRVANA & PRIMA DONNAS!). This LP stands in tribute to their amazingness. Issued in collaboration with our esteemed friends at ARMY OF BAD LUCK, out of Atlanta, Georgia.

MLADYS 8 - LISA SCHONBERG - "THE D.I.Y. GUIDE TO DRUMS" BOOK + MP3 DOWNLOAD $12
TEACH YOURSELF DRUMMING WITH THIS BOOK!
M'lady's is very proud to be issuing the latest edition of this DIY jewel. Lisa Schonberg (EXPLODE INTO COLORS) wrote and illustrated the ideal entry into the magical world of drums. Turns out when you take the mystery out of something, it adds new mysteries no one saw coming. This book has blown minds all over the Pacific Northwest already. We now bring it to the rest of the globe, without proviso.
64 pages, spiral-bound (for easy sittin' on a music stand!) book with easy to understand notes and illustrations. Includes mp3s aurally illustrating all the techniques taught in the book! Learn how to shred on the buckets in no time flat!
Ms. Barwick's debut long-player (originally self-released and originally compact disc only) on vinyl for the first time, and boy, is it breathtaking. 13 miniature gems, paving the glittering highway that she has built since with her spectacular voice. Designed for HEAVY ROTATION, especially in the dead of winter! Mastered by Paul Gold for maximum swoon, and sleeved in a chandelier encrusted with gold foil (LP only, mind you.)
Two of our favorite groups in America team up to turn on ALL the lights. Grass Widow's debut side for us is beyond our wildest dreams: it's called "Disappearing Industries", and it's our favorite song by them yet, brimming over with great ideas. Likewise for Nature! "In A Place" sounds like secret societies wielding wild energy underground. Mystery and magick and brilliance in abundance. Entire pressing limited to 1000 copies worldwide. St. Valentine never had it so good.
We're incredibly proud to be issuing this single. Brute Heart are from Minneapolis, and have already released two truly deep albums (their self-released debut "Brass Beads" and last year's "Lonely Hunter" on Soft Abuse). Jackie, Crystal, and Crystal know the power of echo and the power of tonality, and bring it round like the crazy world of Arthur Russell all over again! This single will get under your skin fast. We've cavalierly suggested in the past the possibility of a "DOUBLE A SIDE" single. This, my friends, is truly such a specimen.
Like a wild and endlessly colliding set of terrestrial plates , THE GOLDEN AWESOME emerge from the earth's core, erupting lava and fire everywhere. This is their debut and premiere album, fully formed and intensely harmonious. They hail from Wellington, New Zealand, and traffick in some of the most electrifying sounds heard on these shores in many years. Music to get lost in for days on end. Sleeved in the most psychedelic shade of yellow by Sam Consiglio, like staring into the sun.
The long-awaited debut album from COASTING is here! Eleven stunning songs from Madison & Fiona, equal parts New Zealand fire, Memphis smoke, Pacific Northwest mist, and New York thunder. Their live shows and early singles have left people in both hemispheres breathless and clamoring for more. For all the radical dreamers out there! Recorded by the esteemed Bill Skibbe & Jessica Ruffins production team at Keyclub Recording in Michigan.
The debut album from Austin magicians YELLOW FEVER. This is a repress of their debut album originally issued by Wild World, now on M'lady's. It's been out of print for a while, and we get requests for it regularly, so here it is! ARISE LAZARUS YELLOW FEVER!
At long last, the vinyl debut of this flawless compilation of Tyvek's early singles. Unstoppable, much like a juggernaut or an avalanche. An avalanche of hits! People have been asking us about this record for over two years now, so we're really excited to finally have it here. Deluxe tip-on sleeve, with lyrics for the first time! Issued in conjunction with our comrades at Water Wing Records in Portland, a subsidiary of Mississippi Records! Mastered by Timothy Stollenwerk and Bob Weston for maximum scree and scrum.
M'LR 031 - NATURE - "WORKOUT" b/w "THE COLOR OF THE OCEAN" 7" $3
Debut astonishment from this mysterious cabal of Portland wizards, chiefly Christina Files, Adee Roberson, and Cassia Gammill. This is a serious basement rhythm jewel, perfect for humid summer afternoons and evenings indoors. The sound of humidity, speak now or forever pine for its bewitchery.
Double A-sided treasure from one of the finest duos around, TALK NORMAL's first new material in quite some time, and boy is it something to behold. A tantalizing window into what lies ahead for them, truly. Sleeve art by KIM GORDON! A TRUE STUNNER.
BY THE ARTISTS NOW KNOWN AS DEEP TIME! NOT MANY LEFT IN STOCK
First new material in forever from Austin's YELLOWFEVER, like seriously forever, three years or something like that? A preview of their incredibly great (like you have no idea, it's practically all we listen to here at M'lady's HQ) debut full-length, out later this year. Jennifer and Adam have been working hard to make the record of yr dreams, and this is the first piece in the puzzle! YES SIR AND YES MA'AM.
At long last, and after so many wild adventures, our first ever 12" long-playing record: EXPLODE INTO COLORS are one of the most fantastic groups on the planet, and this compiles their three now very hard-to-find singles. Sleeved in an embossed all-white l'il jewel, and mastered for maximum seismic disturbance by the esteemed Bob Weston. So devastating, so ridiculously good.
