Ah, yes the time is upon us. We always love to see winter or holiday-themed local releases, and today we bring you one from multi instrumentalist Mark Schwartz, who is constantly cranking out albums. This release is entitled Winterlieder and you can find it streaming on the player below. This release features ten songs – “computer music compositions celebrating the magical season.” Also head on over to the Mark Schwartz bandcamp page where you can purchase the download of the album and also hear much more of his music.
Happy Thanksgiving! We hope you all sure are thankful for… things. We are thankful for you. We are thankful for music. And… we are thankful for… pinball. But back to the music, today we are bringing you a brand new album from local solo artist Jeff Cowhick. This is Jeff’s third musical album under his own name, called Tempered. You can stream it on Spotify right here, or also on Apple music right here. No streaming services that we are able to embed below, sorry.
We do still have physical copies of Jeff’s first album, Firebrand in our store! We are closed now, but will actually be open tomorrow just for Black Friday. We are also adding this one to our Springfield album archive page… bringing us to 58 local releases we have kept track of so far this year!
Lookout! Yes, our store is closed this entire week, and who knows how long after that, but we are still putting out plenty of great new and used LPs, CDs, and more onto the shelves!! Today we tested out putting a few records onto our Storenvy page and it seemed to work out pretty well, so we will probably keep going with that! We have shipping, local delivery, and local pickup options all set up for that to cater to your needs and make sure you get your records during this third-wave of COVID! Also we have our Discogs page set up and rolling for the same! Moving forward we may start listing more new LPs on our storenvy, and continue listing used LPs and all CDs on Discogs.

It’s been a long time since we’ve made any “today” or “tonight” at Dumb Records posts. Last month, the first Record Store Day “drop date” was a success and we were able to stick to our own guidelines of masks and limiting the number of people in the store, so we are ready for another one of these today. Today is the second of the three drop dates, which are happening at the end of August, September, and October. For these days we are getting in a number of exclusive Record Store Day releases. We listed out some of them on this post, and you can find some pictured above. Once again we have a more limited amount of these exclusives compared to normal Record Store Days we have participated in in the past.
In addition to those exclusive releases, we plan on putting out some more new and used records onto the shelves for today.
Our store is open today a little bit earlier than normal – we open at 10:00 am and are open until 7:00 pm. Masks are required and we are limiting the number of people in the store to 10.
Happy new local music Friday everyone! It’s just been a lot of pinball lately, not a whole lot going on here in terms of new local music. Let’s get back to it! Recently, local sound artist Timothy Donavan Russell dropped three new releases in the forms of albums and songs up online. We have ALL three embedded on players below!
Storment Drome is on the bottom and is two tracks over 7 minutes long. These are “raw drone synth noise field recording weird.” Steps is in the middle, includes five new tracks. Then at the top Pursuant is one track over 8 minutes – “Studio jam on microKORG and Electro-Faustus Drone Thing Mostly in 18/4 time….”
Yet another local hip hop project has dropped a brand new album during these times. This is a new one from Offwhyte – a long running talented artist originally from the 217 who has moved out to the west coast and back to Springfield over the years. This is Offwhyte’s brand new album called “Propel Exact.” Check some of that out streaming on the youtube player below. Also check out the album on Apple Music right here, or on Spotify right here.

From Offwhyte’s facebook page:
Galapagos4 cofounder Offwhyte returns, his alter ego taking center stage this time on Propel Exact. Offwhyte’s most fun album to date, the 14-track project is produced by G4 stalwart Open i and clocks in at a hearty 44 minutes. Themes include infatuation (“Sophie Turner”), being a dinosaur (“Velociraptor”), and his age group (“Generation X”). The all-digital album concludes with bonus track “I Am Not a Virus” produced by Kip Killagain. Featured artists on the album include Brzowski, Infinito 2017, Memphis Reigns and Grill Billyenz.
This is one of three albums that Offwhyte has released in the past four years. We are adding Propel Exact to our Springfield album archive page, brining us to
Today we bring you a brand new album from Springfield recording project Demons on Wheels. Demons on Wheels is one of a handful of projects put together by Mark Schwartz as mastermind and multi-instrumentalist, as featured on last month’s cover of Activator Magazine. This new album is called Souvenirs and you can find it streaming on the player below. You can also listen to and purchase more of Mark’s music over on the Demons on Wheels bandcamp page.
Demons on Wheels also released another album, Still Left Standing at the beginning of this year. We’ve also added this one to our Springfield album archive page, bringing us to a total of 44 local releases we have kept track of so far this year.
