That newest release from Timothy is called “TILT!” and you can stream those three tracks on the player embedded below. From Timothy’s website:
Full Tilt! Pinball is a pinball video game developed by Cinematronics and published by Maxis in 1995. It features pre-rendered 3D graphics and three tables—Space Cadet, Skulduggery, and Dragon’s Keep. A version of Space Cadet was bundled with Microsoft Windows from 95 to XP.
It’s that special time of year again. Boy it sure snuck up on us. That time when team up with Activator Magazine and we all get together and talk about our favorite local releases that came out this year! Also our favorite songs, shows, and all of that good stuff!
This year we have a total of 110 local releases listed out into three sections: a general category, hip hop releases, and then Mark Schwartz related projects. *That number is subject to change too if we can think of any more, or if anybody gives us any more to add. Usually we keep track of these things along with links to listen on our Springfield Album Archive Page, but we are very behind on that this year. We have to give a special shout-out to Activator for helping compile most of this list!
In addition to voting for your favorite releases, we are once again asking for you to list your favorite songs that came out from local artists in 2021, and this time around we brought the “live shows” section back as well! We also added a section for any mentions of other Central Illinois releases outside of Springfield, and also suggestion boxes for Activator and Dumb Records.
The results of this poll will be published in the January 2022 issue of Activator! It might be published online on our site at some point after that. We might be looking for help in doing write-ups for all of the winning entries here in the coming days and weeks.
Whoops, it’s probably been a couple of weeks since we have done one of these. There are a lot of people coming in asking for things now a days. We are still putting out a lot of records. The store is very busy. It’s holiday shopping season. We are here downtown every day from 10:00am to 7:00pm. It’s a tornado drill Tuesday! Alright here is a list of some new stuff:

Good morning! Tonight we’ve got another show happening at our space! There are only three acts performing instead of six – how appropriate for a Tuesday night show!
For this show we have the national touring indie/emo band from Atlanta, Georgia called World’s Greatest Dad. (That’s WGD for short, and you can stream their latest release on the bandcamp player embedded below). Actually you know what, stream both of their latest releases on the player below. Also on this show is Tilt Warning – the fairly new three-piece emo band from here and Central Illinois. Opening things up is indie rock act Kate Laine, who we are excited to see back here at Dumb for the first time since before the pandemic!
All of that starts at 7:00 pm and admission is $10. And yes we WILL once again be checking for proof of vaccines and masks will be required. Find a facebook event for this one right here!
Oh nice. This is a post to let you know we have a new *official* unboxing video for Black Friday Record Store Day, which is coming up in just a few days this Friday. We go through opening up some boxes of Record Store Day exclusives – but don’t show everything.
As per usual, none of these items can be help – they are all first come first serve. You can find a facebook event for Black Friday along with more info right here. We open that day at 8:00 am and are open until 8:00 pm.
Good morning, or afternoon! It’s the Tuesday before Black Friday – and would you believe it, we have a lot of records going out on the shelves that are not just Black Friday Record Store Day records. This is a long list of normal used and new LPs that have hit our shelves in recent days. Again, this list doesn’t even include re-stocks or the large amount of CDs and cassettes we are always getting in (okay, the cassettes coming in did slow down some). Also a nice little reminder that we will be closed for Thanksgiving, open from 8:00am to 8:00pm for Black Friday Record Store Day, and open 10am-7pm on all of the other days!! Okay, here is all what is new!

Hey, there’s a big show going on over here that we have not yet made an official website post here for! That’s right, on Saturday December 11th, Flatfoot 56 is comin’ to town!
Flatfoot 56 – American Scottish / Celtic punk band from Chicago, Illinois. They have played here in town a couple of times before, at least once as far back as a full decade ago at The Black Sheep Cafe. They have been a band since the year 2000 – that’s 20+ years. You can stream their latest album, Black Thorn on the player below. Also on this show once again is Attic Salt, a band from here we all know and love. Opening things up this time around is the Brandon Carnes alternative short-song rock band “Night Night Boy“.
This show is a $10 banger, and starts at 7:00 pm like most of our other shows. Find a facebook event right here. Also check out our shows page for a list of upcoming shows right here. And this part we’re serious about – like our other shows, we will be enforcing masks worn by all attendees and checking for proof of vaccine (either in physical card form or photos of one), or negative COVID test within 72 hours.
We have a show going on tonight here at Dumb Records! Did we even make an official announcement post for this show? Hmmm! Anyways, tonight we have the return of Ohmaha Nebraska hardcore group JOCKO. Jocko has performed here before the pandemic and also at Black Sheep for the last Dumb Fest, Dumb Fest 6. You can check out their newest release streaming on the player below. Opening acts on this show include Blind Equation playing “cyber grind” from Bloomington, Illinois. There is a first ever show for a new Springfield band called “Pucker Up” featuring members of other bands. And last but not least (and maybe going first) is Long Birds, a younger punk group from Champaign, IL.
All of this starts at 7:00 pm tonight and admission is $7. Find a facebook event right here. We will still be requiring masks at shows and checking for proof of vaccine or negative COVID test within 72 hours.
Alright here, real quick! We’re gonna go over a show announcement real quick! This one is happening on Sunday, December 19th so mark your calendars!
Okay, for this show we’ve got a band called “Die” from Chicago! Stream their music on the player embedded below. Didn’t we just recently have a band called Die play here? Yes, but that was “DYE” from Kansas City, apparently a different band. Also on this show of course is heavy hitting hardcore band Prevention. Then another band called SPLIT. Didn’t they recently play here too? No, that show got cancelled and they didn’t get to play here, so now they are. And we’ve got War & Rumor from Jacksonville.
That’s it, that’s the show. This show starts at 7:00pm, admission is $7, and we will be requiring masks and checking for proof of vaccine or negative COVID tests within 72 hours still.
This is just a post to show you all that we have our new *Dumb Record* exclusive shirts for Black Friday Record Store Day ready to go. How exciting. No, these are not for sale. We would not even take any money in advance for these. These are only available for free to the first 50 people in line for Black Friday Record Store Day on Friday, November 26th at 8:00 am!!! No, we’ll never print these again.
