Yay! We've been setting up our new house in Corvallis, OR, for the past couple weeks. Lots more room for records. We also have these now:

You can pick one up in clear or black from our store now! It's Alive has the white ones.

And now we're getting started on two new tapes that will be coming out sometime around early fall. They're going to be awesome, and I'm stoked to say more about them when the time is right.

Oh yeah, and speaking of moving... we started a tumblr for Secret Pennies. Facebook is pretty terrible in the "social networking" area for small DIY operations, so we're hoping we can reach a few more people on the internet this way. I don't know who would be reading this that isn't already aware of us on Facebook or tumblr, but you never know, I guess.

Okay, back to arranging furniture.

Chore by Hi Ho Silver, Away!

Wow! So much has been happening, you guys! We've just finished moving out of Secret Pennies HQ, aka our apartment, and are getting ready to leave on a Midwest/Southwest tour for Hi Ho Silver, Away! tomorrow. Speaking of which...

Would you look at that! Hi Ho Silver, Away!'s debut LP, Chore, is coming out on Secret Pennies and It's Alive... well, as soon as we get the records in the mail. We'll have CDs and a limited run of test presses out on the road this month, and the full run of LPs, which come in a few cool vinyl colors and with beautiful cover artwork by Simon Sotelo, will be out around the end of the month. You can stream the full album at New Noise now.

Any orders from our store between now and the 22nd will be shipped out when we get back. And then we'll be on our way up to our new home in Corvallis, Oregon. And then we'll probably have news about a couple new tapes we're working on. Wow. We'll see you when we get back from tour!

And they're pretty great! Here are some kind words from Punknews, Team Reasonable, and Dying Scene. In other words, you're messing up if you haven't picked up a copy yet. Thanks, everyone!

Also, Josh made this great flier for an Isla Vista show that's going to be awesome, and also one of the last couple Friend of My Youth shows, at least for a long while. Check it out!

Friend of My Youth tapes!

Ready for more tapes? HERE YOU GO.

Friend of My Youth tapes are up in our store now. This is a run of 50 pink tapes with cool vellum inserts. This is my band, so I'm not going to say too much about it... take a listen for yourself on bandcamp if you haven't already! I hope you like it! We're only going to be playing a few more shows in and around Santa Barbara, so pick up a tape while you can if you dig it.

We're still only about halfway done with our Spring of Endless Releases, if you can believe it. Stay tuned.

Check these out!

These just went up for sale in our webstore, and you can listen to all the tracks on bandcamp. These will soon also be available from Coffin Boner Records, as well as from Happy Birthdayy, who are playing shows again now since Keaton's back from Italy! Perfect timing!

In other news, here's a cool review of the Shitty Weekend LP from Punknews! That's pretty cool. And in other other news, we'll have tapes from Friend of My Youth in the very near future, closely followed by another release that has yet to be announced. Hurray!

Hey! Shitty Weekend LP came out a few days ago! We posted the entire thing on our bandcamp for stream/download. You can download it for free/donation, but I would seriously consider ordering the LP from us or donating what you can--this stuff ain't free to make! And it looks so nice! Yeah!

14 Feb 2014

Preorders for Shitty Weekend.'s Shit Week LP are up in our store now! Records will ship sometime before March 8, the date of the release show in Portland. One of the first twenty preorders will be randomly chosen to receive a free test pressing of the LP along with their order. Only five test pressings exist, and they're also the only blue ones we have! Pretty cool!

If you need any more convincing, check out the new song "Don't Tell Me Don't" right here:

Also, Happy Birthdayy preorders coming up soon, and then some other radical stuff soon afterward. It's gonna be a busy spring (or whatever season this is).

Check it out! "Throw Me in the Mud," the first song from the upcoming Shitty Weekend LP, was featured on the Razorcake podcast last week--and here it is on bandcamp now!

We don't have an Official Release Date for the record yet, but if all goes well you can expect to see it sometime around late February. More news when we have it!

Big news! In Spring 2014, somewhere in March or April, we'll be releasing Hi Ho Silver, Away!'s first full-length record, Chore. Even more exciting, we're co-releasing the LP with It's Alive Records from Orange County! COOL, HUH?

You can check out "John Adams Park," the newest song from the record, on the latest It's Alive compilation. We'll update with more information as we get it.

And don't forget, we've still got the Shitty Weekend. LP and Happy Birthdayy cassette on the way! It's looking like early 2014 for both of those--a little later than we planned, but things happen (and folks from both bands happened to run off to various places in Europe). I can say that they'll both definitely be worth the wait!

11 Nov 2013

We haven't had an update for a while, but we promise we've been busy. Releases from Shitty Weekend. and Happy Birthdayy are in progress, and a bunch of other rad stuff is coming up before too long. For now, here's a video for a new Hi Ho Silver, Away! song, "Alvarado Sleepwalker". It's going to be on their debut full-length LP, which is called Chore and will be coming out early next year. Take a look to see what we did that week we went up to Goofpunx!
