Welcome to Ditchyourfriendsville

tile is a sludgy, heavy, noise-y project that has released a bunch of seven inches and a pair of cassettes in the past couple years and they all rip. Most are limited runs of 100 or less and pretty hard to come by, but all are worth tracking down. The demo was reviewed on here in the past (although when I used the search function, it couldn't find it), but it is probably my favorite material from tile, besides the LP, which has been uploaded for your listening pleasure.

The LP "Welcome to Ditchyourfriendsville" had a press run of 208 copies, with some pressed on green and others on black through Limited Appeal Records in the spring of '09. The record is heavy as hell and one-sided, with the other side etched with some artwork by Eric DeJesus. Included is the track "Free Pizza, Haircuts" which was recorded on CD for the record release show and shows up as the first track on the dl, so it sounds a lot clearer than the other tracks. The rip isn't the best, with a lot of hiss during certain tracks, but it's worth it to hear this record. "Poison" into "Rail Tapper" into "Murder House" is such a brutal combo, I could listen over and over and over again. The good news is tile has another new seven inch coming out, which hopefully means there will be some shows in the future. Stay up to date with them here.


Limited Appeal has a shit ton of cool records, and if you haven't heard about the Seth Putnam collabo, you need to check it out on their site. Go get this LP and the other tile records L.A. has.
