Young /// Savage will be heading out on a west coast tour this week!
You can now pre-order Deer Vibes Ventura EP from our online store. We are super pumped to be re-releasing this album for them as it is one of our favorite local albums of the last few years. The album will be released in early July and Deer Vibes will be touring behind the album all summer long! You can pre-order it bundled with a limited edition shirt and poster or just the album with the poster.
We are happy to announce we will be releasing a split between New Orleans grunge / punk HEAT DUST and Texas based loud / shoegaze JOY SORES (Tom from Innards is with this group). It’s a limited press of 300 copies on classic black vinyl. It comes with rad cover art and a classy cardstock insert. This is a co-release with our new friends Community Records. Pre-Order it today!
We hunted far and wide for the 4th band for our 4-way split coming out this fall and we couldn’t be more pleased than to announce Cheery Cola Champions are that 4th band! Their Facebook bio reads, “We are two friends who play music together” and as simple as that sounds it was exactly what made us want to work with them besides their infectious Midwest style post punk. After adding them to our SXSW line up we finally had the chance to meet them and their amazing positive attitude sealed the deal. Check out their self released full length on bandcamp and get ready for this fall!
This probably won’t come as a surprise to anyone who has been to our last two local showcases. You might have even thought they were part of the label already, but we would like to officially welcome Deer Vibes to the Texas is Funny Records family! We will be re-releasing their debut E.P. Ventura with all new artwork this summer just in time for their summer tour. Be on the look out for pre-sales in late May!
We are super pumped for our joint SXSW showcase on the 14th with Flannel Gurl Records! We have a great line up, free beer, free food, and a great location.
Hailing from New Orleans, Glish is the perfect combination of style and substance in their shoegaze driven, dream-pop powered creation. For fans of Lush, slowdive, and My Bloody Valentine. Glish will have you humming melodies and air strumming power chords before it is all over. They are set to release a song on a 4-way split this fall followed by a much anticipated Full Length.
We are happy to announce that Texas Is Funny Records will be joining Count Your Lucky Stars in co-releasing Kansas based Texas Instruments debut album. With a sound that recalls memories of midwest cornerstones like Cougar Den, Cloud Mouth and Mans; Texas Instruments has trail blazed into new territory with a full length LP that expands and demands much more. Their rigorous tour schedule and DIY ethics has allowed them to gain acclaim and notice in every town and city they visit. Be on the look out this spring!
It probably won’t come as any surprise that we are welcoming Vetter Kids into our small family of bands. Headed up by our very own Marcos Gossi(ex sohns) and joined by Colby James(Pswingset) and Austin Matherne(Brother/Ghost) Vetter Kids embodies the underground sound of the 90′s in a loud way. Vetter Kids will be joining Young /// Savage on a 4-way split this fall and will follow up with a debut EP full of Hot Rock.
We are beyond excited to announce the signing of Austin, Tx post-punkers, Young///Savage! After hearing their first EP, “New Flesh,” we were determined to have them call Texas Is Funny home; we hope that you agree. Their first release with us will be a four way split 7″ that will be available in the Fall of 2013. In the meantime, go listen to their first EP’s that are available here.
