Mat Jones AKA It is rain in my face. has been building up a steady fan base over the last couple of years, and for good reason. With each album he puts out he tweaks and bends his sound further and further in the experimental folk arena, and his latest The Framer is no exception. Stripped-down, rustic, and soaked in whiskey, these nine tracks take Mat’s sound into his twangiest territory yet. The result is a challenging merging of experimentation and time-worn tradition that feels both deeply personal and somewhat alien.
The Framer is available for streaming on our Bandcamp and download on Mat’s Bandcamp. If you’d like to grab a cassette though, make sure to pre-order one today. Be patient though, the cassette process is unpredictable!

Chill Mega Chill is pleased to announce TORMENT, the inaugural full length LP from Tallahassee musician Jake Tobin. Recorded alone over the course of a few months at his woodland compound, Tobin’s songs display a white collar work ethic of almost surgical precision. Here is guitar slanging and avian twittering, drenched with lilting shrieks from a (possibly) stolen saxophone. Brassy drones and stuttering keys occasionally drift in like clouds of airborne toner. These are tunes for confetti-filled elevators or long drives to lunch dates with corporate suits at drab cafes. TORMENT proves to be a caustic but also compassionate take on pop, cutting the safety net out from the 9-5 malaise. Jake Tobin’s TORMENT, coming out on 12” vinyl this Spring on Chill Mega Chill.
It’s that time of year again, our favorite time of year!

Spanning 16 tracks of macabre, downtrodden the Chiller III is a perfect companion to your spectacularly evil activities today.
Accompanying the creepy compilation, is a small collection of art, from some of our favorite ghosts and ghouls, for your viewing pleasure.
Dive in to the Chiller III here.
