Laundry for the Apocalypse [2021]

Back from oblivion! The Laundry for the Apocalypse record has recently been re-issued.

Aaron Sarlo / Penis Tsunami [2019]

Songwriter, Aaron Sarlo, did not intend to throw gasoline on the fire that is the national discourse when he released his comedy-country ballad Penis Tsunami in 2019. However, since 2019, a cursory glance at the nation’s political landscape will show anyone that things have changed in America since the release of this song. This delightful, extremely catchy, laugh-out-loud “music-comedy gold” from “the best lyricist in Arkansas.” For fans of laughing.

Oh, lord, yes

More releases coming soon
