Listen to the whole album at Music | the gift machine (

The Gift Machine is an indie rock/psych pop quartet (and sometimes more) currently based in rural North County San Diego. Forged in the freakishly fervent creativity of the Pacific Northwest, The Gift Machine’s Dave Matthies has worked with an impressive list of Northwest notables including Phil Elverum (The Microphones, Mount Eerie), Karl Blau, Little Wings, Lee Baggett, Your Heart Breaks, Laura Veirs, Bret Lunsford (D+, Beat Happening) and many more. After relocating to the San Diego several years ago and collaborating with now wife Andrea Gruber Matthies, Matthies has helmed The Gift Machine through many albums of critical acclaim, touring the US, and even time on the CMJ album charts….but still has mostly stayed under the radar. “Consolation Prize” is full of fuzzed out sing alongs both sweet and gritty, featuring the beautifully intertwined voices of the husband and wife team. With guitar interplay reminiscent of the Feelies or vintage Flying Nun thanks to guitarist Matt Lawson’s and Matthies’ thick layers of bright and shimmering, spacious guitars, the songs are sweeping and cinematic, also belying a more modern dreampop/shoegaze influence. The propulsive rhythm section of Alanna Cassidy and Andrea Gruber Matthies has a hopeful, forward momentum at a steady pace.

Anyone who votes gets first dibs on the reissues if they happen.

dd Toby Leaman - Military Applications!

Debut solo release from Dr Dog's dd Toby Leaman

(This Preorder should ship by Mid May(ish) Any items ordered with this item will be shipped when it arrives to our studio))

We are so excited to release the debut EP 12" from Dr Dog Co-Frontman Toby Leaman!

Limited to only 300 copies on Yellow Vinyl, 300 on Pink Vinyl, and (maybe only) 400 black vinyl.

There are 20 "Test Pressing Patron Packs" that include a Military Applications Test Pressing and a unique color version of the release in a super limited MIRROR PRINT version of the sleeve. The Mirror Print version will not be available for purchase.

Listen to the whole album at: Military Applications | dd Toby Leaman (

Dr. Dog co-frontman, dd Toby Leaman bludgeons his way into a musical masterpiece on this solo debut . Speedy pump up jams that pair perfectly with our modern life or past lives. Wildly diverse, vibrant, and dynamic, these songs share the same charm and top notch musicianship that have become a Dr. Dog hallmark.
Dog fans might enjoy the posi-dub vibes of "Don't Worry" or be familiar with the Armageddon love song trope expertly rendered in"7th Seal". But you don't have to be a Dr. Dog fan to dig this record. There is truly something for everyone. If you're into ripping guitar solos and coda rants, "Spooked by the Kooks" should do the trick. If crazed story songs with killer choruses are more your speed, then we suggest "The Runaway". If you want to bop and boogie your way through modern terrors try "Military Applications". If you can't get enough existential synth apathy and optimism, "Rider" will get you through the night.

Archives and Test Pressing Deep Dig!

Classic out of print records and test pressings

So, for every record that I make, I always try to keep at least 5 copies of each lathe cut and 10 copies of each pressed record for my archives. This assures that I won't oversell it, have replacements in case the USPS does what the USPS does best (loses/destroys a package), have a copy for a good friend who is a super fan, etc etc.

Every once in a while I clean out the archives, find random things here or there, etc and list them t clear out space. For the most part these are listed at the original prices. Just please don't be that discogs flipper asshole that jacks the prices up on these rarities, please.

There are some things offered up now that haven't been available in years.


BONUS - Closed Distributor = A couple records back in print

We just got back about 6 boxes of stock from a distributor that went defunct so we got about 10-15 copies of each of the following records back and so they are temporarily back in print:
Mirah - No Guns No Guns 7"
Sugar Candy Mountain - 666
Casper and the Cookies - Modern Silence 2xLP
Wooden Wand - Archives LPs
American Monoxide - In Flight Mode
Grey Waves - VOID LP
JIm White - Waffles, Triangles, and Jesus
Saqqara Mastabas - (Matt from FIery FUrnaces + Bob from Sebadoh)
