Five years ago it seemed like Uncle Lucius had run its course. They had torn a swath out of the Texas roots music scene over a 13 year run, worn out 5 vans and recorded 4 albums, and grown a reputation at home and abroad as a thrilling, dynamic live act. Long-time fans were certain they'd be a massive global hit. The only question was when. Growing families demanded their fathers' attention, and years of touring started to feel like circles around a drain. The tide went out, and they folded up their sails.

The audience had other ideas. Interest in the band continued to grow during their absence from the touring circuit. Pro athletes used their songs for walk on music, and top-rated television shows (Yellowstone) featured their music during pivotal scenes.

"We should have broken up years ago," they joked.

They never intended to reunite. Some things are not up to us. intention is well & good, but some people are made to play together, meant to create together. And intuition was their intention, all along.

The tides had transferred, the forces realigned. Uncle Lucius was a dream, first materialized over dank nights at the Horseshoe Lounge, drinking cheap beer with Dixie while the jukebox moaned. It crystallized on endless highway drives and onstage fever dreams. It felt like part of the past, but where one van breaks down, another van comes rolling up.

After a five year hiatus, the band will be bringing their methods of soul, joy, and thunder to select stages across the country. All we've got is now.
On December 8th, the newly-reformed band will release their 5th album since 2015. Like It's The Last One Left carries on the Texas bands deep rock and blues traditions while covering topics like mental health, love, and self-care.

Me Neither is a 29 track double album of instrumental guitar music. While juggling a number of other projects James Elkington began writing "music for which there was no purpose." It became a new way of working for him - waking up each morning and improvising and recording the first thing that came into his head. "The only rules I gave myself were that I should make most of the sounds with a guitar, changing the speed or processing the recordings afterwards to get the effect I was looking for." Before long he had an albums worth of material. About mid-way through the second album Elkington had a liberating thought: he was making his own version of library music "if you're writing library music, you dont have to know what it's for - that can be someone else's job."

Michael Nau is set to release his fifth full length record under Karma Chief Records on 12/8/2023. Since the mid 2000s, hes crafted a catalog of thoughtful, reflective songs as the frontman of indie-rock mainstays Cotton Jones, Page France, and Michael Nau & The Mighty Thread.

All 11 tracks come together to paint a beautiful picture. The lyrics invoke the listeners imagination throughout. Theyre introspective, but vague and open-ended. The indie rock backdrop shows signs of psych-soul influence with dry and punchy drums, lush synth lines, and tastefully verb-soaked vocal production. Sweeping string arrangements and French horn runs add cinematic motion to the waltz-y Shiftshaping (track 4). Slide guitar and a shuffling snare drum add some get-up-and-go to Painting a Wall (track 2). Naus vocal delivery falls somewhere between crooning to a crowd, telling stories to a loved one, and musing to himself.

The singer-songwriters relaxed attitude toward making records is discernible in the sound. A while back, veteran producer and engineer Adrien Olsen (The Killers, Lucy Dacus, Fruit Bats), approached him about recording in his Richmond, Virginia-based studio. For the first time in a while, Michael had some sessions on the calendar. He called a few old friends and put together a band. I didnt have much of a plan before Adrien reached out, so I wrote some songs specifically for the session, Michael explained. I was thinking about what would be fun to play with this specific group of guys."

The band consisted of several long-time collaborators and musicians who had participated in Naus various recording and touring efforts over the years. It had been a while since Id made music in a room with other people, Michael shared. We just sort of started playing and didnt really talk about what was happening. The combos newfound chemistry was a primary source of inspiration and, with the help of Olsen, ultimately led to an albums-worth of music.

Nau and the band spent five days at Montrose Recording and left with a plan to return and finish up a few months later. After the first session, I took a copy of the recordings with me to overdub a few things at my spot, Michael shared. While he was working through it, he found a bunch of beautiful moments of jamming in between the takes. I grabbed a bunch of the pieces and tried to work them in. Then, I dumped the whole thing onto a cassette as one long stream of songs. With the record mostly complete, the final session at Montrose would consist of some simple overdubs and finishing touches.

But somehow, in the months between, he lost the overdubs. Going into the second session, all I had was the cassette, Michael explained. The band got back together and performed another batch of songs. At the end of their second session, they had enough music to pick and choose from for the new full-length. The songs, as they appear on the album, are basically how they were recorded as a live band. Grab a copy of Accompany on 12/08/2023 and keep an eye out for tour dates in the coming months.

The legacy and lineage of Dais Records dovetails naturally with the mission statement of vintage electronics innovator Retrospekt: Reviving retro tech for a new generation. The fruit of their first collaboration is a chic, white, rose-adorned, limited-edition release of Retrospekts CP-81 portable cassette player containing an exclusive 19-track compilation cassette of unreleased material from the label's roster: C23. The title alludes to the year, the catalog number (DAIS223) and to the iconic UK indie collection C86, famously included with a 1986 issue of New Musical Express.

Dais co-founders Gibby Miller and Ryan Martin both came of age in the cassette era and remain champions of the sacred nature of the analog object. The mediums customizable, affordable, and portable nature empowered generations of subcultures to document and disseminate their creations. Although the compact disc dominated much of the 1990s, tapes never went away. Martin is adamant about the formats enduring potency: Cassettes arent nostalgic, theyre relevant. Making a mixtape for a friend or love interest is a talismanic offering. Its a reaching out, a sharing of discovery."

For Miller, too, cassette culture was seismic; he continues to see singular strengths in the limitations of older technologies: Having a device solely dedicated to music may seem unique to a person today, but theres also a purity in it. The ritual of hitting play. Feeling the hum of the machine. Flipping at the end of the side. Tapes changed everything for me.

Retrospekt co-founders Adam and Kori Fuerst share a similar ethos. Although they initially started the company refurbishing vintage cameras, it has since expanded into tape players, radios, headphones, typewriters, Game Boys and beyond. Their passion for physicality, aesthetics and direct connection mirrors that of Miller and Martin: These vintage machines arent obsolete they still provide pleasure and enjoyment, says Adam. More and more people today realize this, and they want to have an organic, intentional experience without their metadata being tracked by some corporation.

Dais in-house creative designer Nathaniel Young reimagined the CP-81s standard presentation for both player and packaging. The white Dais edition of the cassette player comes packaged in a white box with black text, plus a set of white Dais-branded headphones and the C23 compilation tape.
