New music video from Brillo:

Brillo's release entitled 'SEEDS' (previously only available as a download on bandcamp is now out on cassette, limited to 50 copies. Grab it up from the shop page.

New digital release by 'MARVIN' available here! Vulgar and dirty, yet nicely written and well spat rhymes about drugs and sex over some of the best beats you'll have heard this year.

A brief message from the people behind this project:

"MARVIN (otherwise known as "the paranoid android") is no longer with us. He was a first-generation prototype of GPP (an abbreviation for "genuine people personalities" created by the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation ). As with most first generation electronic devices, they tend to have a few problems initially. Unfortunately, these initial glitches caused a major shift in behavioral characteristics of MARVIN. The debauchery, although graphic, was a direct result of extreme indulgence; an obvious genuine personality flaw. This recording is found footage of MARVIN depicting moments up to the event of his death, in which a stolen ship dove into a sun. Albeit vivid, this is still somewhat if a souvenir. He has since been replaced and given the same name and the same job, with a redesigned exterior."

**New three song music video from CLOSET WITCH (songs are on the tape!) and new BABY NOIR video for 'Body Tonight'!**
