We are extremely excited to welcome Southern California three piece Crisis Arm to the family. Crisis Arm has spent the last couple of years honing their blend of shoegaze, dream pop, and post rock both live and through self released eps. When we heard their most recent ep Caterwaul, we knew they were onto something great. The band will be releasing their debut LP on Mayfly Records early summer 2014. Until then, pick up a limited edition cassette release of Caterwaul at Family Time Records.

We are really excited to welcome Maryland indie rock band Young and Heartless to our evergrowing roster. On first listen, I was immediately reminded of 90′s emo bands like By a Thread, Texas is the Reason, and The Casket Lottery. What drew me in was Young and Heartless also sounded very new - a balance of reviving the old, while creating a sound that is all yours can be hard to achieve. The band recently released the “Death in Color” ep through Kat Kat Records (heard here and purchased here) that we strongly suggest you check out. Young and Heartless will be recording a debut LP this December, which will be released by Mayfly Records spring of 2014. Check them out this Oct with labelmates Whenskiesaregray as they tour to Fest together, dates coming soon.

We are really excite to inform you of a new partnership with Cleveland based Indie Merch Store. Thanks to them the Mayfly Records webstore will be maintained by a full time staff. This means instead of waiting long periods of time frustrated, your orders will be shipped within 48 hours of purchase. I accept I am pretty bad at mailorder, rather then lose supporters who loved what we did, but hated the wait. This wasn’t fair to you or the artists on our roster, I decided it was time for a change. Please give me any feedback in the future, Thank you again for your continued support!
