AVAILABLE JULY 28, 2018
The four-song EP dynamically touches on themes of the bright future we strive for and the backs that must be stabbed in order to arrive at it, the death of close friends and the paths we follow until that detour arrives, the new shoe feeling of spending time with someone for an extended amount of time, and the almost-death of a family dog.
AVAILABLE AUGUST 4, 2018
Equal parts punk pandemonium and boozy blues, this concoction delivers rock 'n' roll straight to the central nervous system. The sophomore album, and first on vinyl, from these Minnesota heaters is the elixir to cure ailments you didn't even know you had.
AVAILABLE AUGUST 24, 2018
The debut LP from Kansas City's Emmaline Twist merges the angular rhythms of post-punk with the dreamy ambience of shoegaze to construct vast soundscapes that evoke the urgent, anxious energy of bustling cities enveloped by a sonic atmosphere as wide as the prairie sky.

"...an outpouring of pent-up political frustration and good old-fashioned punk rock that combine together for catchy-yet-unrelenting rock that checks all the major boxes for an incredible album." - Mills Record Company
"...the noise we need to hear. The reactionary force to the bullshit of everyday life." - I Heart Local Music
Eight minutes of tight chaos packed onto 7 inches of virgin black vinyl from two of the Midwest's finest punk rock bands. If this record doesn't make you move, call an ambulance. You may be dead. This release marks Stiff Middle Fingers debut on vinyl.
Originally released by the band in 2006, this critically acclaimed slab of rock n roll represents both Pizzasaurus Rex’s complete catalog and the first release of the Barker Gee Memorial Scholarship. Also featured is the artwork of Everett Gee, Barker’s brother and sought after punk rock illustrator. All proceeds from the sale of this cassette will be used to assist other DIY minded bands in the pursuit of their craft.
Twenty-five years ago Truck Stop Love released their first recording; a cassette recorded by the band in the back room of Vital Vinyl, a local record store in Manhattan, Kansas. In November, the band released three of those songs, plus 8 more previously unreleased demo tracks and never-before-heard recordings, on vinyl LP through Kansas City coop record label Black Site.
IN STORES NOW
The second release in the Barker Gee Memorial Scholarship series. This 10-song blast from Lawrence, KS math punks, Chess Club, is redefining the Power Trio for the next generation. Packed with energy and solid musicianship, the future is bright for this already veteran band.
