Consider this in part a postscript to our recent mixtape on all of the great North Bay bands: Weird-punks OVVN, with members hailing from West Oakland and Guerneville, are releasing a new tape this week, a wonderfully strange mix of blown-out heaviness, warped gloom, and tightly-wound nerve. The set of songs feels like chaotic ideas captured direct-to-tape from the minds of its creators, and you can check it out below.

As the rad flyer designed by Josh Staples indicates, the band’s release party is this Friday at Pee Wee Golf & Arcade in Guerneville, which sounds like a really fun way to spend an evening if you’re in the area. (Side note: can we start having more shows at mini golf spots?) They’ll also be performing at The Night Light on September 4th with Heatwarmer, Cash Pony, and Reptoid.
