NEW RELEASES ON CD-R and TAPE

***Available in 10 Days! We are commemorating our 4 year anniversary with a tape/CD-r Release:

until then here are 5 NEW releases.

owl head wooden man/night music liftedness pt. 2

dttr 021 CASSETTE

owl head wooden man and night music team up again for part 2 in their on going liftedness series.

the owl head wooden man (aka s br. oak) side consists of 4 blown out, fuzzed out pieces. while the night music side unfolds with collage, abstraction, noise and song. each side compliments the other in an unending cycle. amazing late night listening

big blood operators and things dttr 023 CD-R/CASSETTE

REISSUE - originally released on peasant magik (pm50) as part of a 3" cdr box set in the spring of 2010...




inspector 22 - Friends In High Places

dttr 020 CD-R/CASSETTE

The third release by Inspector 22 on dttr, his best yet for sure! On This one we find mr. todd wesley emmert in more a repetitive sprawling form. 11 genius songs... family, god, stigmata and the devil weigh in as major themes. a house favorite for sure!



russian tsarlag/human adult band split

dttr 026 CD-R/CASSETTE

This one is a scorcher! first up russian tsarlag creates a twisted realm. 5 hypnotic and brilliant songs.. lulling, surreal and completely cracked! I could listen to this over and over.

Human adult band deliver their one of a kind ear bending sludge straight from planet boombox to you. If you have seen them live or heard their records you know what your getting into... for the uninitiated, now is as good a time as ever.





tarpigh - asiatic potters

dttr 018 CD-R/CASSETTE

three loping songs from one of our all time favorite bands. razor sharp guitars , synth, bells, pump organ and throbbing percussion all weave and tell there tale on this masterful album by one of portland maine's best kept secrets!

Reviews and if anyone cares...


While searching for reviews of our new album, I found a few sites with Dead Songs, up for free download.
While we are all for sharing music and making it available to everyone, Dead songs is different from the music we release here at Dontrustheruin.
Every album we've made so far for free from WFMU here:


Time Lag Records invested alot in our album, making this our first proper release on vinyl and cd. It was and is a totally awesome experience to work with Nemo.
So in the interest of supporting a small (local, for us) business that does great things we ask that people stop putting Dead Songs up for download (and using Nemo's review!). Go here to buy it from the source.


Look at the shiny bowls and read this lovely review
and this one...

DEAD SONGS एंड ...

Thanks again to Time Lag Records! The LP's rule in beauty and quality thanks to Nemo!
( This is my first 12" vinyl release so deal with my enthusiasm and exclamation points!!!!)
good review: here

On Tuesday July 6th at APOHADION Theatre Horse Spirit Pentrates will explode themselves along with Genesis Climber both from WMASS, Shonny Baby CryCry(dark urrru, br. oak, deceh), and Asian Mae(big blood, fire on fire, dark urrru)!!
Shon and I will close out the evening...Caleb said he'd play on some songs with me and I said I'd play a song with Shon, so a bit of a mash up!
Loudies: HPS and G Climber will be playing first due to noise restrictions so don't be late!!
Starts after 8pm $7 suggested -- for the touring bands and the awesome Apohadian
thanks in advance!!!!!!!
