Out today on Cubby Control Records: Last Snowman by Gnom i Snegovik...
The second release by the Russian experimentalists on CCR, Last Snowman
is a departure even for Gnom i Snegovik, since all tracks (except the last) were recorded in a multitrack program rather than live with a couple of microphones
at a concert or rehearsal - the usual method of recording employed by Gnom i Snegovik. Moreover, all participants were recorded independently, under the simple
rhythmic/harmonic sketches sent to them via email by Gnom i Snegovik frontman Danila Grethenevsky. And, accordingly, the musicians had not even heard what
others had recorded. The final product is a collage of the recorded tracks. The author and performer of texts on the album is Belarusian free-jazz saxophonist
Frederick Samotny, also known under the alias Oos Sadam.

Cubby Control Records' first video on YouTube! REPTIEL's Violent Sagas of the Ancients...
...AND the Audio Vérité Series FPs 1-3cassette tape, which brings together the first three releases in
REPTIEL's Audio Vérité Series onto one single cassette tape, 30 minutes each side. The cassette tape
includes an extra track not available anywhere else...
REPTIEL's Audio Vérité Series is a vehicle for the band's spontaneously produced music recorded initially at their rehearsal space. Most of
the songs come from impromptu performances of improvised music never played before and perhaps never to be played again. Others are segments
of jams or other sounds made at rehearsal, looped and/or run through effects, or not. Some of these rehearsal recordings also may have
overdubs added to them. The end result is Finished Product, or FP.

SAN FRANCISCO — Cubby Control Records proprietor Brian Weaver claims he dreamed the combination to the safe that holds the master tapes to
Thee Druggles' never-released Psych Garage Rock album Space God Pills. As the legend goes, Weaver threw the master tapes into a safe at
Cubby Control (headquarters for all things Cubby). Then years later (not long after starting Cubby Control Records), wanting to release the
album, he attempted to open the safe but could not remember the combination. After numerous attempts, Weaver gave up, hoping he would
eventually remember the combo. Four years after that, the combination came to him in a dream (a really strange dream, Weaver claims, that
involved traveling to a planet called Progkp). Weaver now reports the safe has been opened, the master tapes have been retrieved, and he’s
been working with recording engineer Jai Young Kim (JYK) of Feast or Famine Records to prepare the album for release. JYK was the original
producer/recording engineer of the Space God Pills album and gave the master tapes to Weaver for safekeeping. Ironically, the combination
to the safe was simply 6-6-6.

Cubby Control Records has a lot planned for 2015...
REPTIEL has finished recording and mixing their psych fantasy rock epic Hobbitozz: A Land that
Never Was, and they will be playing some shows in March to promote it, as well as a live performance on KFJC in February. Additionally, they will be releasing another
installment in their Audio Vérité Series: FP 3. More details to come on all of that.
Russian experimentalists Gnom i Snegovik have two albums they're letting CCR release in 2015: Mystirios Anruf and another as of yet
untitled album. They are sure to mesmerize, alienate, confound, and entice, just as they did with their first album on CCR, Myzel.

There will be another Cubby Preachers release in 2015, though Cubby Preachers compilationalist Brian Weaver is unsure yet if it will coincide with
the release of a Missalette, as did CPV.
Lastly, Cubby Control Records is excited to announce the addition of two new artists to their roster: Aero Dualities and Richard Foushee. Both artists have written and recorded
material, but have to yet to release any material. But look out for some aural previews from these artists in 2015.
