Sauna Youth's song Transmitters, off their 2015 album Distractions, was one of my favorite songs from last year. These two songs are off a new 7" you can purchase from Upset the Rhythm. The A-Side, The Bridge, is from Distractions but the B-side, Blurry Images, is new to me: The Bridge by Sauna YouthThis is neat, from Atlanta's Chunklet Industries, a four song 7" from various artists, "one of a small stack of random copies left over from the pressing," with only 5 left at this writing, per their Bandcamp page. The Black Lips, Baby Shakes, Gentlemen Jesse and His Men, and Coffin Bound. From 2009: Whirlyball Single #2 by Various ArtistsFrom Minneapolis, this is the first song off a new 5 song cassette put out by Lawn Chair Records: A.D. by Ripper21 song comp from Portland's Resurrection Records: Get Resurrected Vol. 4 - Winter 2016 Samp…
