Today we release an album we’ve been compiling for years: Flannel Beach – The Doom Years, a mixtape featuring great SoFL bands spanning the years of 2004-2012. The album is available in 12″ vinyl & cassette format(s) via our online store & IRL @ Gramps tonight, Friday, September the 25th. ‘Coral City‘ & ‘Natural History Redux‘ are screening before Rick Guerre goes live, followed by a special Guy Harvey reunion set. The compilation benefits our current project, the South Pointe Park Coral Nursery. Read more about Flannel Beach here via the Miami New Times and here via The Creators Project. Thank You to the Musicians of Flannel Beach, Michael Alen of Sound Nutrition, who co-produced the LP, Jorge Gonzalez Graupera, who mastered it, and Brian Butler, the artist behind the swampy album artwork.

We are psyched to debut the Coral Morphologic + Dylan Romer-directed video for Dim Past‘s ‘Spectre In Wire’, an aquatic cut off the Black Dolphin EP. Utilizing Google Glass and GoPro devices, we take a trip down the Miami River, through Government Cut, and out to the sea, our destination. There we dive in and illuminate the Corals of Miami, keepers of a magical yet ephemeral realm. Dylan Romer‘s reality-augmenting ‘Time Piles’ application treats the exploration, holding the experience together like a glue until we resurface.
We are proud to present (in collaboration with O, Miami Poetry Festival) an original 5-Poem split 7″ featuring 2012 Pulitzer Prize-winner Tracy K. Smith and L.A. Times Book Prize-finalist Gabrielle Calvocoressi. A limited edition of 200 records was pressed, with each cover hand-painted as an original multiple by Miami artist Nicolas Lobo.
On Thursday, September 20th, at 8:30 p.m., we’ll unveil the record at Lester’s in Wynwood. Copies will be available for sale for $15. The record is also available to buy online here.
We are proud and humbled to have the opportunity to release the final four recordings from the beloved and now-defunct Miami band Beings. The Social Creep EP is a 4-song, limited-edition run of 100 copies in glow-in-the-dark vinyl with sleeve art by the band, screen-printed in glow-in-the-dark ink by Iron Forge Press. We have rubber stamped our corallimorph logo onto both sides of the center-sticker by hand and numbered the a-side, both in silver ink. This is a special record.
Lester’s in Miami is graciously hosting the listening/ release party this Friday, December 9th as well as Laser Wolf in Ft. Lauderdale on Saturday, the 10th. We will have the record for sale for $15 at the parties. The remaining copies will be available at the Discosoma Records site beginning Monday, December 12th as well as Sweat Records in Miami and Radioactive Records in Ft. Lauderdale.

Above is a fresh video for ANR’s ambient track ‘Dead Gulf’, which appeared as the B-Side of our ‘Big Problem’ 7″ on Discosoma Records this past January. The song soundscapes a remixed clip of our ‘Corynactis viridis‘ Natural History film from last year. Video artist Jamie Harley reworks the original clip, effectively transforming the 8mm corallimorph polyp into a anthropomorphic troubadour.
We are proud to announce the fifth release in our South Florida-centric 7″ vinyl series; ‘Slave Exchange’ b/w ‘Sweetwater’, from Miami’s Lil Daggers. The wax is a limited edition run of 100 copies in black vinyl, with a wheat-pasted photo on each individual sleeve affixed by the band. As usual, we have rubber stamped our corallimorph logo onto the b-side of the center-sticker and stamped/ numbered the a-side.
The release party will be within a party: Saturday, January 16th @ the 2nd annual Sweatstock. Check out the set times for a bigger picture of the event – many amazing bands will perform, including Discosoma’s Lil Daggers, Beings, and Guy Harvey. The 7″ will be available at Sweat Records exclusively Saturday, which is also Record Store Day. After Saturday, you can pick up the record at Sweat as well as the Discosoma Records site.
