[TRBRA004] Whitesand/Badlands: Blank Czech/Humans #1 7"
“Blank Czech” is a seemingly labyrinthine affair that is typical of the band’s complex and polyrhythmic methodology. Its varied parts hint alternately at psychedelia and pop, without ever really embracing either. The rhythmic yet frenetic pulse is the only constant, and it floats the song to its gorgeous and powerful denouement. The B-side, “Humans #1,” is both autumnal and rollicking. It is conversely heavy and soft, warm and cold.

[TRBRA005] Shahs: Dry Heat/Valley Low LP
At long last, Shahs' debut LP fulfills the promise of the handful of self-released and limited edition EPs. A post-noise freak that occurs in the more seedy varieties of the Midwest's dissident cultures, Dry Heat/Valley Low is borne of a tradition of oddball, mutant pop troubadours. Written/produced by Shahs, mastered by Pete Swanson. Art and Layout by Tony Remple.

[HNDR 001] Shahs: Divine Interest
First release since 2006's Natl Belle cassette, and inital release on Handreadr. Shahs is the is the palindromic moniker of Tom Helgerson who spent time exploding the scene in Glass Organ (Tone Filfth) and To Kill A Petty Bourgeoisie. It is crudely recorded, low fidelty dub. Divine Interest is culled from the forthcoming TRBRA release Dry Heat/Valley Low. Hand painted, six-song CD.


[HNDR 003] Shahs: Pocket Gyspy
This four-song CD sees Shahs becoming more engrossed with the dub/island vibe presented on Guts (HNDR 002). A new batch of beach-inspired songs created in the landlocked forward operating base of Montana.


[MG001] Whitesand/Badlands: Seeding The Clouds
Following in the footsteps of their 7" for TRBRA is Whitesand/Badlands' epic 2xLP debut. Those with a wayfaring spirit will hear a siren luring them into a mysterious journey, a march toward beauty without answers. The more anchored and practical-minded among us will hear a haunting, unique, honest and decidedly listenable modern rock record of restrained ambition and exceedingly high reward. Released on the band's own Magnetic Ghost imprint.
