Today we added a six minute sampler showcasing snippets from 8 of the Floods album’s 14 tracks. The album is only available with purchase of Barfly‘s Winding Up Strangers in Bars novel. It is not yet available on it’s own or anywhere with any of the online distributors like iTunes or Amazon.
If you like what you hear on the sampler, there are still signed copies of the limited first edition novel and CD package available for purchase by clicking the Buy Now link below.
Tempest & Brolly™ brand Luxury Contraband are proud to announce that Barfly’s novel+CD release Winding Up Strangers in Bars has been added to the LA//LX art installation opening tomorrow at Manteigaria de Lisboa in Lisboa, Portugal. Character sketches, editorial notes and loose leaf lyric pages lending insight into the author/musician’s creative process will all be on display along with the book and music. The exposition is focused on Los Angeles artists with connections to Portugal. Barfly’s grandmother Marie came to California from the northern coastal city of Porto. Erotic illustrator Natalie Krim and sculptor/miniaturist Matt Nichols round out the bill on this diverse little cultural exchange.
The show opens tomorrow and continues through the end of the month at Manteigaria de Lisboa located in Calçada de Santo Andre N33 Bloco 21 Esq in Lisbon. Copies of the book & CD package will be available there for purchase and the remaining 30 copies of the personally inscribed limited first edition are still available here:

That’s right. We’ve made it another year and somehow we’re still rich, still completely solvent.
We here at Tempest & Brolly™ Brand Luxury Contraband are too old to be doing this and too stupid to hang up the spikes. We don’t even know how old we are because we stopped counting last year.
We have a couple of things in the works for this year and we’re excited to tell you about them as soon as we’re a little closer to release.
So that’s it. That’s our big birthday non-update. Mostly we’re just posting this to prove that someone still lives here.
Happy 2015 and as always, thank you for marrying T & B™ Lux Contraband.
In much the same way Blue Note opened their vaults to Madlib, Olympia, Washington’s beloved K Records (launchpad for such artists as Beck. Dub Narcotic Sound System and Chain & the Gang) opened their vaults to our Oldominion brother Smoke. The result is the album “All Your Friend’s Friends” which dropped Nov 11th. Our own Barfly has a slot on the album putting his words over a reworking of the legendary Daniel Johnston song “Some Things Last a Long Time”. Don’t let that turn you off though! The album also features real songs by real rappers!
You can get it online or order hard copies from K Recs.
We are proud to have handled the art work for this album and we are proud to present to you the first video from the album. This is Sleep and Maulskull’s “Sinking Ship” pulled from their forthcoming full length LP titled ‘Oregon Failure’. Enjoy.
If you think this is right up your alley, then head on over to Strange Famous Records, who are kindly lending a hand with the pre-orders.
This is Sleep’s fourth solo LP and the first full length he’s undertaken releasing on his own. It’s a career milestone as much as it is a creative milestone and we wish him all the best with the album.
