The TBA release, will feature a large bundle of songs created by you and can be expected to hit the airwaves sometime this Summer!

We are happy to announce that HOUNDSds‘ Phone Thou is all set and ready to go! We’re not going to be doing pre-orders, so instead we’re just unleashing this thing right off the bat!
If you’ve never before taken a moment to check out Patrick McIntyre’s jangly dream pop, then make sure you do so now. The entire release is up on our bandcamp right now to stream or download for whatever price you want. As always we made 50 of these cool grey cassette tapes and for only $5, one of them can be yours (plus your choice of Chill Mega Chill button or vinyl sticker!)
SIDE A: 1. The Sleeping King 2. Oh My Lord, I Can See Your Face 3. Anarchists In Love 4. Evening
SIDE B: 5. We Gotta Wait 6. Poets Mistaken for Thieves 7. By the Time I Get To Kalamazoo
We at Chill Mega Chill are super pumped to be bringing you SOFA PITS’ excellent debut album New Moments.
There is a distinct old world feeling to these tracks. It’s like they’ve been buried deep in the ground and are just now being discovered. Crystalline formations, rough around the edges, covered in earth. It’s coming down the pipes here pretty soon so don’t touch that dial!
Player 1 1. Vision Quest 2. 1-800 3. Good Things Are Coming 4. Anesthetic
Player 2 5. Waking Up (In The Evening) 6. Mass Appeal 7. Going Away
This one has been a long time in the making, but after you hear it I’m pretty sure you’ll agree that it was worth it. With that said, pre-orders for Roads & Boats‘ Going Away are finally ready to go. Immerse yourself in a world of neon imagery, 8-bit graphics, and retro sonic soundscapes. In other words, grab Kelly Kapowski by the hand and take her for a ride on your brand new jet ski.
And when you get back, scope the official vid for “1-800” by Chill Mega Chill video collaborator VHS Dreams and order yourself a copy of this way rad tape, man.
