Today we’re pleased to announce new music from The Ah, the solo project of NYC-based musician Jeremy Gustin. Perhaps best known for his talents on the drum set with groups like Delicate Steve, David Byrne, Albert Hammond Jr., & Rubblebucket to name a few, The Ah is a different world altogether, conceived by Gustin as the product of collaboration with his own imagination and the world around him. It’s tough to describe The Ah’s sound with words, but one listen to Gustin’s electronic collages will leave you curious and craving more. Pre-orders are available now in our Shop – officially available everywhere on November 17, 2017.
Over the last 1.5 decades, Vermont-to-Brooklyn based songwriter/producer Ryan Power has tirelessly embarked on the quest to write the definitive song-based music, full of accuracy, refinement, deliberation, and perfectly-placed shifting harmonic puzzles. This show will be in celebration of his new NNA release: They Sell Doomsday. Ryan will perform two sets: one with Matt Mitchell, one with Tredici Bacci. Ryan is looking forward to this.

Today we are overjoyed to release Kalbells ‘Ten Flowers’ into the world. This record has been a long beautiful organic process that birthed music filled with joy, wonder + the human spirit. We get to hear the collaboration between Rubblebucket’s front woman Annakalmia Clark Traver and producer + NNA Tapes artist Ryan Power as musical worlds collide to produce a record that hopefully everyone can find a moment within to enjoy.
A glorious interview with Annakalmia Clark Traver of Rubblebucket on her debut solo record, “Ten Flowers”. Kal talked the origins of the record, battling cancer, working with NNA artist Ryan Power + the joy of writing music.
“Writing the album was a big part of my healing, because the record is so much about detoxing and letting your body and your cells express what they need to. That period of writing was pretty transformative for me.” – Annakalmia Clark Traver
