Prince Cash: “Menace Of Society”


Here we are bringing you some more new local music in the form of this release from Jacksonville-based hip hop artist “Prince Cash“.  You can find Price Cash’s new eight-song album Menace To Society streaming on the Soundcloud player below. The album was released earlier this summer. You can also find it streaming on Youtube right here.

Prince Cash doesn’t have any live shows lined up as far as we can tell. We might be wrong though. We are also adding this release to this year for our Springfield album archive, bringing us to 31 releases this year and 457 releases total (surely there are many more that we need to catch up on).

Junior Pasáre: “We Gone Win”


Today we bring you a stream of another new local hip hop album – and that is by artist “Junior Pasáre” who just around one month ago dropped his brand new 12 track album called We Gone Win. You can find that streaming on the youtube player embedded below, or you can check it out on spotify right here.

There was a writeup on this album featured in Activator Magazine by Ken No. From the writeup:

We Gone Win is a well-crafted release from one of the very best in the 217, with Pasáre working both on the mic and on the boards. Project after project, Pasáre puts his all into his work, and the end result rewards multiple listens, with each layer of emoional depth and melodic mastery adding up to an exquisite album which only adds to his legacy.

We also have this one added to our Springfield album archive for releases that have came out this year.

Vincent Sebastian: “Interference”


Happy Sunday! We are taking things a little slow today over here at the office since we just got done with three nights with three great shows back-to-back-to-back at Dumb headquarters, so excuse us coming in late with some website posts today. A week or so ago Springfield/Chicago musician Vincent Sebastian released a debut full length album, Interference, around the same time he performed at the show at our space with Jocko and others. We are finally getting that album here streaming on our site today. If you haven’t listened yet, you can stream it on the player below – it’s great. You can also head over to Vincent Sebastian’s bandcamp page to purchase the download of the album.

Vincent doesn’t have any other shows lined up at our space that we know of as of right now. Keep your eyes and ears out for them in the future. Yes you can check this one out on our Springfield album archive page as well. We are at 451 released listed on that page.

Zetaretic: “Demo”


We recently discovered a brand new metal recording project and possibly soon to be full band called “ZETARETIC” from right here in the Capital City, so of course felt it appropriate to share Zetaretic’s demo recordings that were just recently released. You can stream the first song of that demo: “What Lies Beneath” on the Youtube player below. Or head over to the Zetaretic Youtube Page to stream all five of the tracks. The demo is called The United $lave$ of America. It looks as if right now Zetaretic is just the solo project of Aaron Williams, but Aaron is looking to recruit other members to turn it into a full band. Go check out the Zetaretic facebook page if you would like to stay updated or learn more!

Yes we are also adding this one as a 2019 release under our Springfield album archive page! Go check it out! We just hit 450 releases!

Stuart Smith: “The Sun EP”


Today we are happy to bring you a stream of semi-local Americana solo musician Stuart Smith’s new EP: The Sun EP which was released earlier this month. Stuart is based out of the small town of Winchester which is west of us. The Sun EP is six tracks, at least the first of those you can find streaming below. You can check out the full thing on soundcloud right here, or on spotify right here. You can also head on over to Stuart Smith’s website to look into ordering a phyiscal copy of the release – it looks like it is available on CD and a limited amount was pressed to 10″ vinyl but has been sold out!

Stuart Smith released a full length album, which was pressed to vinyl, War Horse last year and we did have copies of that in Dumb Records. That and The Sun EP are being added to our Springfield Album Archive page, which now brings us to 448 archived releases! Stuart does have a number of shows lined up in the area, which you can check out on his facebook page right here.


Forest Saints: “Intergalactic Radio”



Keeping our streak of new Springfield music somewhat going here – today we bring you a brand new album by Springfield recording project Forest Saints. The new album is called Intergalactic Radio – it’s a whopping 23 tracks clocking in at what looks like well over an hour of some very space oriented sounds and songs. Here’s somewhat of an explanation from the Forest Saints bandcamp:

Voyager 1 is a space probe which was launched by NASA on September 5, 1977. On August 25, 2012, it became the first spacecraft to cross the heliopause and enter the interstellar space. The most distant of all man-made objects, Voyager 1 continues to communicate with the Deep Space Network, receiving routine commands and transmitting data to Earth.*

On October 23, 2017, Voyager 1 began transmitting to Earth radio signals it was intercepting out in interstellar space. These radio signals were determined, after much analysis, to be emanating from a host of different solar systems. In fact, the signals were able to be traced back to specific exoplanets.

Voyager 1 has captured the first signals of intragalactic radio. Specifically, Voyager 1 has captured what can be described as the first sounds humans have heard of alien music. All of these sounds were determined to originate from within our galaxy, the Milky Way.

Forest Saints is the “psych-prog folktronica” musical project of Mark Schwartz. You can stream Intergalactic Space in its entirety below. Head on over to the Forest Saints bandcamp page to find other albums available or to purchase the download for this album. You bet we are adding this one to our Springfield album archive page – putting us at 441 releases listed.

Imaginary Colours: “Among The Horizon”


Oh boy we are on a row getting you some of that hot new local music on a daily basis! (Well, we guess it’s all of you local musicians out here that are on a roll). Today we bring you a brand new album from solo electronic project Imaginary Colours. The album is called Among The Horizon and you can find it streaming on the player below. You can also head over to the Imaginary Colours bandcamp page to purchase the download of the album, or stream any of their previous releases.

Imaginary Colours doesn’t have any live shows lined up at this point as far as we know. We are adding this album on to this year’s list on our Springfield album archive page which you can check out right here!

Timothy Donavan Russell: “Dark Light”


We sure do have a hard time keeping up with local sound artist Timothy Donavan Russell and all of the new music he is constantly putting out. Timothy is already on his fifth release this year – this one being called Dark Light. This one is just three tracks but nears a total of one hour in time – the first being a forty one minute long ambient piece. Check it out streaming on the player below, or head over to Timothy’s bandcamp page where you can purchase the downloadable mp3’s.

We’ve been trying to keep up with Timothy’s releases and everything else that has come out so far this year on our Springfield album archive page. Tim is also a member of the new Pharmacy Gallery which has also recently re-located downtown and has their official ribbon cutting ceremony set to a few weeks from now on Saturday, May 4th.

Sadface Killer: “Domino Line”


Happy Valentines Day from us over at Dumb Records. Today we are bringing you some new emo music – not exactly from right here in Springfield but it is featuring one member that goes to school here at UIS and also volunteers at Dumb Records so it counts as Springfield music by us. That is Sadface Killer‘s newest album Domino Line – 13 tracks which you can find streaming all on the player below. Nice. Head over to the band’s bandcamp page where you can purchase the download of the album.

Sadface Killer played one of the final Black Sheep shows back in December with Park and Earthwitch. They don’t have any Springfield shows currently lined up.

Deezy Da Paperboy: “The Midwest Miracle”


Back to the new Springfield music that has been coming out! In the category of local hip hop – here’s a five-track release that dropped right at the end of last month (so the end of 2018). It’s Deezy Da Paperboy with The Midwest Miracle, which you can find streaming on the player embedded below. The last track “Light The Sky” features vocalist from Lincoln, IL, Alexa Redd.
