Feliz Cinco De Mayo, primera parte! The debut album, “Naif”, by Denver’s hottest powerpop band, Curious Things, is out now! It’s available as an LP on 12" classic black vinyl (digital download included) or as a standalone digital long player from our WEB STORE or our BANDCAMP. Curious Things is the vehicle for songwriter Cameron Hawk, who has been a storied contributor to bands of various genres over the last 20-odd years (The Gamits, Lawsuit Models, The Dead Girls, Bandaid Brigade and more). Though Hawk is a self-diagnosed music nerd who will happily rock to any musical style with a group of buddies, his own songs have always fallen somewhere in between Power Pop and Pop Punk - unabashedly melodic, refreshingly quirky, and executed with a pull-no-punches Punk spirit. Rounding out the band with Hawk are drummer Forrest Bartosh (The Gamits, Bud Bronson and the Good Timers, Pinhead Circus), and bassist Ryan Heller (Tuff Bluff, Lawsuit Models). Together, they create an unstoppable power-trio dynamic that remains on full blast throughout “Naif”. This is a co-release with our newest label buddies, Dumb Ghost Recording Enterprises. This is distributed as always by the fantastic Recess Ops. It’s also available via Green Noise Records and in all the choicest of record shops in the greater Denver Metro area. Don’t forget, Curious Things is having an album release party tonight at The Squire Lounge!
Pressing Info: 200 12" LP's on classic black vinyl / digital long player. Co-release with Dumb Ghost Recording Enterprises. Released 5/5/23.

Greetings worldwide websters! We are pleased to officially announce that our favorite Vancouver, BC, Canada loser punk power trio, Night Court, has album #3 ready to go! “Humans!” will be released on 12" vinyl LP and digital long player on June 9, 2023, once again in conjunction with Canada's very own Debt Offensive Records. Lead single, ‘Out Of Control’, was just premiered over at Add To Wantlist and is out now on all the latest streaming streamables for max rockage. The tune is also on our bandcamp sampler. Pre-orders for “Humans!” is now available from our WEB STORE as well as our BANDCAMP and 'Out Of Control' will be included as an immediate download. Night Court's “Humans!” follows up the Nervous Birds! Duology, a two album arc that saw "Nervous Birds! One" in 2021 and Nervous Birds! Two" in 2022. “Humans!” continues the band’s driving and delightfully unpolished sound, recorded DIY in the studio they built in their garage. Night Court has further sharpened their penchant for direct and catchy anthems that are custom made for the scrappiest of underdogs. What more could any fun-loving Human! want from such a fine rock and roll combo?!
