New GRR Shirt - The Trenchcoat



I'm super excited to finally be able to show off the new Gold Robot Records shirt to you all today. It was designed by the brilliant Doe Eyed Design, a super talented dude who has worked on posters and other items for the likes of Ratatat and Andrew Bird. It will be printed in two colors (Coffee and Athletic Grey) on American Apparel Tri-blend T-shirts; all sizes for men and women are available for pre-order now. How much does it cost, you ask? Only $12 plus shipping, which is super cheap! Reserve one today, and you'll have it by the end of February.

PRE-ORDER THE SHIRT NOW


Thanks again for all the support.

New Etsy Shop for Shirts



Found some extra inventory of our shirts recently so we've set up a small Etsy shop to sell the remainder of these beauties. Cruise on over there and pick one up. (Hint: there's a brand new non-logo shirt coming out pretty soon!)

Seamonster Video



Check out the above video for the Seamonster track "Balloonhead Part Two" directed by Danrew McGlennon. I love the song, off of the excellent The Ascension of Archibald Balloonhead. Keep an eye out here for a new Seamonster release coming soon.

Railcars Cover & Remix



Thought it'd be prudent to pass along a few new Railcars-related audio tidbits on this cold Monday. First off, in what promises to be the first of many new remixes - White Rainbow tackles the title track off of Cathedral With No Eyes. (Also: Remember the suite of CWNE remixes by Danny No/Fi? No? Well, get them all right here.)

::: Railcars - Cathedral With No Eyes (White Rainbow Remix)

Next up, a recorded version of a cover the perfected during the recent US tour - "Dreams" by the Cranberries. Just broken swooning and what not. (Also: Now imagine Railcars covering an entire Kate Bush album. You can make it happen over at Kickstarter.)

::: Railcars - Dreams (Cranberries Cover)

And, as always, get yourself some amazing vinyl records.
