Dawn Riding - "The Light" (Cassette / Digital)

Dawn Riding - "The Light" (Cassette / Digital)

“The Light” is a 33 minute long, drama-noir love story – one that you may stay up too late reading, captivated by the characters, their struggles, and the rugged beauty that always seems to shine through. The seven tracks that make up Dawn Riding’s sophomore release ride the same mid-fi, hypnotic wave as their debut, with an ever-growing commitment to telling honest and personal stories, highlighting the beauty, comedy, and euphoria in even the toughest days.

Lost Demos EP - The Lost Days

Lost Demos EP - The Lost Days

In content, the Lost Demos EP is light-filled, melodic music about dark days & complicated relationships. But in its essence it approaches a simple euphoria - like the Pacific coast in the late summer, on a rare day with no wind, or a daytime drink in a good friend's backyard, laughing about what happened the night before. It may make you nostalgic for something that probably never happened, longing for some insight into those lost days.

The Lost Days = Tony Molina + Sarah Rose Janko

Sitka Sun "All The Way West" LP / Digital Download

Sitka Sun "All The Way West" LP / Digital Download

All The Way West - Sitka Sun's sophomore release - is both a carefully composed instrumental jazz album and a spaced-out contemplation on the human condition. It exists at the intersection of rhythmic prowess, psychedelic experimentation, & jazz sensibility, intentionally asking more questions than it's willing to answer throughout its 32 minute lifespan. All The Way West is music for right now, as we come out of 2020 and hopefully into a changing world: it encourages reflection, inspires movement, & welcomes new growth.

Run With The Moon Compilation

Run With The Moon Compilation

The Long Road Society was born out of Run With The Moon, inside the walls of Starline Social Club (Oakland, CA), and this compilation was actually the first album we had intended to release when we started the label. While that didn't go exactly as we had planned, there's a real potency that this project is being released 3 years later - this record is now a time capsule of an era that will forever be very close to our hearts. It chronicles performances from the early shows (2016-2017) and marks the beginning of friendships, musical partnerships, and a long creative journey we were just embarking on. 

The Run With The Moon Compilation features performances byDesiree CannonKit Center & the Hollow BonesAviva le FeyDawn RidingMikayla McVeyThe Alternating CurrentsSam DooresQuinn DeveauxPaula Frazer & TarnationZena CarlotaSalt Suns, & Ben Bourdon.

Dawn Riding - Last Spring LP / Digital Download

Dawn Riding - Last Spring LP / Digital Download

In their debut album Last Spring, Dawn Riding has crafted a project that is somehow fierce, intimate, outlaw, passionate, and psychedelic, all at the same time. Having cut their teeth in basements, underground venues, and punk houses around the country, it only made sense for Dawn Riding’s debut to come to life in a dusty mid-fi recording studio run out of a San Francisco garage. The eight psych-tinged songs that came out of the Last Spring sessions unveil the stories of songwriter Sarah Rose Janko’s fabled friendships, renegade icons, and uncompromising ethos, and serve as a perfect introduction to Dawn Riding’s dreamy, gritty sound.

Aviva le Fey "Lovesick" LP / Digital Download

Aviva le Fey "Lovesick" LP / Digital Download

Lovesick, the debut album from Aviva le Fey is both the dark end of the street, and the promise of a stunning sunset. It's the gut-wrenching feeling when you know that your love won't last forever. It's the song of the mourning dove - beautiful, somber, and resigned to a future of longing.

Never Land EP - Kit Center & The Hollow Bones

Never Land EP - Kit Center & The Hollow Bones

Never Land is the debut EP from Kit Center & the Hollow Bones, recorded in a strange & perfect neon-lit cave. On the edge of both americana and psychedelia, the songs & sounds of Never Land were made for getting lost on the road, or for slowing down on a warm spring morning. It is lonesome & hopeful, like the dry, rolling California hills. Limited edition of 100 tapes. All tape orders come with a digital download, delivered at the time of purchase.

Desiree Cannon "Beach Sleeper" LP / Digital Download

Desiree Cannon "Beach Sleeper" LP / Digital Download

In her debut release, Beach Sleeper, Desiree Cannon leaves everything on the studio floor - the studio, in this case, is the living room of a 1920s Oakland house littered with records and a variety of 1970s and 80s analog recording equipment. The album is heart-worn, complicated, and raw - it's recommended for anyone who understands the complexity of human emotion and isn't afraid to cry.

Mikayla McVey - Holy Golden 10-inch

Mikayla McVey - Holy Golden 10-inch

The beautiful, acid-tinged debut 10-inch vinyl from Mikayla McVey. Holy Golden is 6 songs of love, moon landings, and the blissed out state of California - warm and thwapy, like it was meant to be when recorded to tape. 10x10 art by Adrienne Swan. A painting of a photograph, cut into collage, photographed on film, digitized and proofed onto paper for your viewing pleasure.

"Spin Right Round" 45 by Moses Cadillac

The first Long Road Society 45 from the elusive Moses Cadillac featuring "Spin Right Round" b/w "A Thousand Times." Reminiscent of old sedans and shared cigarettes, dusty wine bottles and early Sunday mornings, black & white movies and lo-fi hip hop.

Born In A Car Crash: A Guide to 1950s and 60s Rhythm & Blues 45s

Born In A Car Crash: A Guide to 1950s and 60s Rhythm & Blues 45s

“Born In A Car Crash”, written by Morgan "Moman" Nixon, is a guide to 1950s and 60s rhythm and blues 45s - artifacts of an incredibly fertile period of Black American music and a time of significant cultural upheaval. R&B was a constant thread through the complex tapestry of racial segregation, international conflict, and the civil rights movement. One could argue that rhythm & blues music was "born in a car crash", and instead of being crippled by the weight, used the experience as inspiration to create beauty & joy. We owe so much to these musicians & this struggle, and it's our hope that the artists & labels featured in the book may someday become as heralded and well-known as all the popular musicians who stole from or built upon their sound.

Racing For Pink Slips v27

Racing For Pink Slips v27

If you're anything like us, you're probably very excited for the newest mixtape & zine project from long-time friends & collaborators Morgan Moman Nixon & Travis Weller. For Racing For Pink Slips v. 27: Clear Water, Moman's musical focus turns to surf rarities & Travis' art turns towards the ocean (though one could say, isn't it always?)

Included in this release is a high-quality 28-page art zine featuring Weller’s original paper collages. Weller is currently exhibiting a larger body of works on paper at Legion SF in San Francisco, CA. The zine is accompanied by a 50-minute mixtape of rare Surf Rock 45s from 1963 to 1972. The DJ session was recorded to a high-end Tanberg cassette deck at our friend's warehouse in East Oakland and engineered by Kit Center. All tapes have been dubbed to the highest quality Chrome Type 2 high bias cassettes available.
