Punk infused alt-country band from Sacramento, CA. Said arguably listens to too much Pavement. Touches the soft spots of Modest Mouse and the Weakerthans. Story telling and imagery galore. A requiem for a missing friend. “her i’s and j’s are missing dots, and i am missing her.”
Iowa City's Hot Tang is releasing their debut album "Mostly Mallards" on May 25th and The Alternative is premiering a new track! "Dinosaur" is actually the first Hot Tang song I ever heard from their Gone Fishing Demo EP. Take a sec and read the wonderful write up on the band and enjoy their new single! Hope you like it!

Hot Tang, from Iowa, will be releasing their first full length "Mostly Mallards" with us in May. Great indie pop from Iowa spanning styles similar to Frankie Cosmos to a softer version of Mannequin Pussy. Check out their music video for "Secret Beach," and pre-order a cassette!
Madrid's Wild Animals made a fantastic record and it comes out this friday!! At times this album reminds me of bands like Superchunk, Jawbreaker, Sugar and Dillinger Four. Listen to "The Hoax" in its entirety here, thanks to IDIOTEQ. Order the vinyl here, US orders will ship next month because these little guys are coming all the way from Spain!
We've opened up the Lauren Records Record Club for another round of subscribers! This is a way to support the label and bands by buying all their records coming out for cheap! We've got Wild Animals and Sun Valley Gun Club LPs coming soon. A 7" featuring members from all the twinkle bands you used to love as well as some heavy hitting emo reissues.
The club is $100 + $50 shipping. And it gets you the next 10 records we release. 10 LPs / 2 7"s = 1LP - Every record will ship early + you'll have dibs on the rarest variants we press. - Ships per release for US subscribers and every 3 releases for international. - You'll receive a free exclusive t-shirt - First 20 subscribers will also receive a free LLRC enamel pin
I promise we will also include loads of other free stuff, records we have here running low or that I only have a copy of and don't want to add to the store. It's worth it! It's fun, easy, and it helps me and the bands out so much.
