    • Chrissy Murderbot has a new EP on Wide Records. "Juggling styles is a stunt we’re more than fond of at WIDE Records so it is an absolute privilege to have Mr. Murderbot aboard for the first of two 2 EPs on WIDE Records."  There's a new Murderbot mix up on the Mad Decent blog. They're pimping for him in the Chicago edition of Time Out. Fave quote from the interview "You can beat mix like an amputee, but if your tracks are hot, people will pay to listen to an hour of you sounding like shoes in a dryer.”  His self-titled LP is out now on his very own Sleazetone Records.  Available on CD & LP formats.  See our new arrivals page for more info!
