This record is pressed onto a beautiful translucent blue vinyl and the artwork is in 3D! The wiggle GIF here gives you a sense of how cool it is to see it with 3D glasses on (which come included).

The Me Gustas - New Album Benthic Exploration - Summer 2017

Monday, Monday,

The Nor Cal misfits, better known as The Me Gustas, are venturing beneath the sea for inspiration for their next release! Immersed in deep sea literature, documentaries, etc. it is inevitable that this will influence our next release. This is looking to be a six song release and we feel this is going to be the strongest representation of our sound. Until then, make sure to add our previous releases to your collection for free at:

New Cruncher CD called "STORMY"

Herbert phoned me a few days ago and told me that he has 26 tunes in the can.
At least 18 will find its way onto the new CD called "STORMY".
In the new year he will start to have them pressed.
So let´s hope for some stunning tracks (this time I have not received a pre-sales cdr
so I don´t know what he will offer!???)
