There isn’t going to be any shortage of words on the new MERCHANDISE full length LP Totale Nite… Tampa, Florida is a different sort of place to be from then the major cultural cities of influence… Sometimes the more isolated locations produce more uniqueness in the absence of stimulation or bigger opportunity. With MERCHANDISE, you can’t just look at the surface because there is so much more in the collective spirit of the surrounding art and music, solo projects, additional bands, the music that came before in its richness and depth. Totale Nite is the distillation of experience, working hard, thinking deep while letting the spirit move forward unhindered. This record captures so much beyond any kind of obvious influence focusing the self-produced and recorded atmosphere into an even more distinct MERCHANDISE sound, dreamy dense post-punk drifter ballads that are as textured and dynamic as they are laden with pop sensibility.

MILK MUSIC are a band of American artists who make cosmic electric soul rock on the subject of life and the human condition. Their impeccable songwriting and style can be compared to artists such as the Velvet Underground, Gun Club, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, and the Meat Puppets. Their latest LP entitled Cruise Your Illusion is out now on compact disc and digitally through Fat Possum Records. The vinyl was self-released by the band.


Hailing from Tempe, Arizona, DESTRUCTION UNIT deal in their own sort of desert rock: ripping riffage, pounding drums, ominous atmosphere, damaged vocals. Spin magazine calls them “The best American band to hit the stage since The Stooges, The Velvets and The MC5.”
