We just received the cassette reissues of Pumice's two most-recent full-length releases (Pebbles from 2007 and Quo from 2008) in today's mail. We feel that this music is almost tailor-made for tapes, and are pleased to provide these re-releases for fans & all others as well.
Both casettes are available for pre-order now. We'll start shipping direct mailorders in a week or so...
Some praise for Pebbles --
"...sounds like our hero has eaten the bread of Gate & drank from the cup of Alastair Galbraith. Sometimes he even breaks out like he stole Bruce Russell's Fire Engines records! The new sherriff of Xpressway County don't shoot no blanks. Great stuff." - Tom Lax, Siltblog
Some praise for Quo --
"Fans of overdrive will find their fix in 'Fort' and 'Battersby,' which sound like a bag of early SST cassettes found melting in the desert." - Exclaim Magazine
In other Stefan Neville / Pumice news, Soft Abuse (in conjunction with Neville's own Stabbies imprint) is currently prepping for release the debut from Olympus, Neville's long-running collaboration with Kraus (a former member of Futurians, The Aesthetics, etc). Bold Mould is more than two one-man bands coming together; it presents of two old friends coming together, and in the spirit of collaboration, Olympus provides the forum for each artist to expand on his own world of sound. Olympus' debut, Bold Mould, is LP-only (w/ DL) & should be available by September.
