This labor day weekend, RVNG/Commend is joining efforts to support Houston. We’ll be collecting goods (mini toiletries, dental hygiene essentials, first aid items, pads & tampons, diapers, socks & underwear) to send via the New Hamilton Beach Civic Association. We’ll also be donating 10% of the weekend’s sales at Commend to Harvey relief. Thank you to our friends Rachel Barnhart (Soap Library) and Lauren Willson (who will be donating 100% of proceeds from her Salve sales in-store) for activating this effort!
Gardland offer the title track from their forthcoming album, Syndrome Syndrome. “Syndrome Syndrome” melds organic and mechanized tones from Gardland’s sonic wheelhouse, highlighting an anomalous unity that binds – and often blows apart – much of the Australian duo’s debut album. Learn more about that here.
Folks. If you’ve been hanging with us for long enough, you may remember the RVNG playlists we gathered and shared on the old instance of igetrvng.com. Family & friends & ourselves contributed a handful of tracks with the hopes of cultivating a certain sonic vibe to help expand your record repertoire, remind you of a forgotten favorite, or simply brighten your day.

First up – Paradis‘ mix from last July, just in time for (what will hopefully be) the end of Winter:
