Seattle siren Briana Marela just announced that her new album will be released on Jagjaguwar (the label of Angel Olsen, Sharon Van Etten, Bon Iver, and Dinosaur Jr, just to name a few). By the sounds of the first single (and her recent incredible live performances), this should be a really fantastic album. If you don't already have her Speak From Your Heart LP from a few years back, do yourself a favor and pick it up.

The re-release of Shana Cleveland's solo album was met with a flood of reviews, and is definitely the first thing we've distro'd to get reviewed in the New York Times on the day of its release. NPR, Pitchfork, and Consequence of Sound all chipped in with some words, too.

Seattle buddies Dozer are touring the western U.S. right now.
And our friend Richard Album has taken a break from making garage pop albums to make a dance album. He teamed up with director Sally Lawton to make a video for the lead single that is pure absurd genius.
