Parenthetical Girls: (((GRRRLS)))
Now it's four years on. In that time, Parenthetical Girls have released two more critically-acclaimed full lengths (2006's Safe As Houses [Slender Means Society] and this year's Entanglements [Tomlab]), toured the US and Europe with the likes of Deerhoof, Xiu Xiu, Los Campesinos!, Evangelicals, and Casiotone For the Painfully Alone (whose album Etiquette, incidentally, features a rather lovely cover of (((GRRRLS)))' closing track "Love Connection"). We are pleased to finally present (((GRRRLS))) with the wide distribution that it deserves for the first time.

Casiotone For The Painfully Alone: Advance Base Battery Life - Singles Collection
From Kraftwerk to Leonard Cohen, The Smiths to Suicide, and Pet Shop Boys to Smog, Chicago’s one-man musical army Owen Ashworth ? a.k.a Casiotone for the Painfully Alone - has been bracketed with all manner of illustrious names in the course of his eleven year career. But in collecting the 7-inch split-singles and compilation tracks he released from 2004-7 (all but two of them on CD for the first time), Advance Base Battery Life provides compelling evidence of the singular nature of this industrious film-school dropout’s talent.
Erase Errata: Alphabet Series - U -
After last year’s extatic album “Night Life”, SF’s Erase Errata return with two new and exclusive recordings for this series. With “Clear Spot” they pay tribute with a genius cover version of one of their heroes, Captain Beefheart. The flipside brings you “Pass the Crimson”, a dynamic and cutting new song that follows EE«s tradition - Ellie«s sliding bass, Bianca«s tricky drums and vocalist Jenny«s staccato singing.
