  • Donate to the Urban League of Metropolitan Saint Louis via Ice Age Records web store this weekend

    Plenty of independent labels are offering special Thanksgiving weekend deals for folks looking to pick up records for the holidays, and Ice Age Records founder Kris Di Benedetto is doing a little something extra: he's donating all the money that comes in to Ice Age's web store through the weekend to the Urban League of Metropolitan Saint Louis, in response to the Saint Louis County grand jury's decision not to indict Officer Darren Wilson for the fatal shooting of Michael Brown . The Ice Age store will offer up some killer punk records for the occasion-including a test pressing of The Echo The Light , the second album from fourth-wave emo group CSTVT, then known as Castevet-and the label's catalog is ripe for the picking.

  • Listen to 'Flare Gun,' a bewitching pop tune from the new In Tall Buildings album

    Four years removed from the release of his self-titled debut as In Tall Buildings-backed by the then-fledgling Whistler Records-Chicago-based Erik Hall preps the release of his follow-up, Driver , due out on Western Vinyl on February 17. Today's 12 O'Clock Track , "Flare Gun," is the first bit of that album to be made available, and it showcases the same warm, spacious pop Hall is so adept at composing. Though the track seems more focused on the gentle melodies breezing through the foreground-present in both Hall's airy vocals and the twisting acoustic guitar line-the subtle noises bubbling behind the music are often as bewitching.
