And the shadows grew darker, longer...

We've got some great things in the works at Chthonic headquarters.  Leaves are shifting and drifting, these bones are getting restless, that's for sure.

Up next/soon is a tape from Tucson's Wanda Junes.  Faux country ballads, real country ballads, working man's blues.  It's made me cry.  Preview a track below and be thankful.

Plus Timothy Boulanger's got two new cassettes of homemade boom-box recordings that are finally coming together. Songs about drugs, drunks, death, love, and hate. Happy songs and sad songs, songs to sing along to, all sorts of songs strummed out in gooey goodness that will rise through the tape hiss into your ears. Take a sneak peak listen and see what we mean.

Then, in the works is the long over-due 2nd comp tape.  It's gonna be well worth the wait.

Also, head over the releases page and gobble up the download for the Again Again cd-are-nots.

AND, a few other things in the works that shall be revealed in due time.   Just you wait.

Send love letters and hate mail.  crude drawings and bad songs.

News news news! Summer 2011

It's summer and we haven't had a release in a few months but don't worry because there's lots coming up. Or a few things rather. First of all the long awaited Jonathan Boulay / Timothy Boulanger split cassette has been completed putting them tapes together this week so it should be ready for everyone sometime next week if all goes as planned.

Next will be the dBpm cassette ep "Music to Fuck to" should be coming together this week as well. 14 minutes of noise music put on to purple cassette tapes housed in old cigarette boxes. Comes with some extra goodies for your adult pleasures.

Also a short run of CDRs will be made from an incredible House Show that was played a few weekends ago to say goodbye to a great home that had many wonderful shows. This was the one to end them all. It was recorded and will be available for whoever wants a copy soon. The fine folks who play on this one are the lovely: Timothy Boulanger, Sam Burton, and Brent Colbert's project "Awful Truth."

Lastly we're starting a new compilation cassette and looking for some more people to be on it. So if you've got some tracks and want to submit feel free to send us an email over at

Yoooo, First off bunch of stuff is now available! Up first we got the Rake Kash 12" LP synthesizers, piano, bass, hammond organ, & tambourine and recorded on a cassette 4-track in Austin and Omaha. Some of the tracks are lovingly arranged and dripping with a sentimental quality that recalls eastern european soundtracks during the heyday of film. Other tracks are more propulsive and dominated by circular bass and the wheezing Hammnond. It's limited to 100 copies and comes with a digital DL for the album as well as a whole entire bonus album download as well. co-released with">Gertrude Tapes

Next is the Samuel Locke Ward / Toby Goodshank Split 7" EP. NYC anti-folk artist Toby Goodshank (of the Moldy Peaches)! Split release with Slumber Party Records out of Omaha, NE and us here at Chthonic. EP features 3 songs on each side. SLW side a collaboration with Ross Meyer, Pete Balestrieri, Skye Carrasco & Grace Locke Ward. SLW cover drawn by Toby Goodshank. Toby Goodshank cover drawn by SLW. 7" comes with a free digital download!

6335 / dBpm / Silver Antlers / Transcode - "4way Split Cassette" Tape features 4 different artists with 4 very different tracks. Anti-music, drones, EAI, ambiences, melodies, harshness and pleasantries. Each tape comes in a one of a kind hand made sleeve. Each tape looks different but sticks to the same THEME. limited to 40 copies so grab one while you can. Comes with digital download.


The final touches are being made to for the Jonathan Boulay and Timothy Boulanger split cassette. ‎Should be finished very shortly (for real this time). Both guys spill out some really great songs here. Go check out some upcoming tracks for this in the DOWNLOAD section of the site.

dBpm has another cassette coming up titled "MUSIC TO FUCK TO" this mini album will be coming housed up in recycled cigarette boxes with some surprises for you inside. Tunes on this one are going in a different direction from the last track on that 4way split cassette. This one is gonna be out within the next few weeks.
