GRAND HEAD - Grand head LP   BUY NOW!
TEN TIMES THE THUNDER OF THE MELVINS, 66.6%  THE PERSONNEL!  Like Hellhamer from the 70's.  Two brothers out of Portland Oregon bring the doom and monster riffs with a hardcore slant.  No plodding 15 minute songs, instead this album contains 9 songs that will leave your ears bleeding in 30 minutes or less.  Raw and dripping with influences ranging from Black Flag, The Melvins, Celtic Frost, and Harvey Milk.  This is heavy on the riffs, and minimal on vocals, which sound at times like Cronos from Venom, and other times like  Jerry A from Poison Idea.   These brothers have been playing together a long time (mid 80's hardcore band Dread, and 90"s melodic punk band The Jimmies), you wont believe they make such a loud thud.  The vinyl comes with a nice pull out lyric sheet, and some rough sketch artwork from the guitarist himself. 

Jon Ransom The Chief Mourner $20 - Gorgeous 140 gram Yellow vinyl.

This is the brand new release from Jon Ransom.  Gorbie is proud to offer the best in heartfelt, handmand, hardworking, music.  Stunning golden vinyl, lyric sheet, and all if this is packaged in a hand printed sleeve.  The printing done by Jon himself.  The music is Jon's most fully realized adventure yet.  With strings, and horns, and group singing and all.  You're gonna love this warm folk inspired album of music.  Listen to on Bandcamp

St. Even - Special Limited Canvas edition CD, Book, & Poster only $15

It's like you had a classical baroque orchestra on a bus. That bus ran head on into another bus that had some stoned out Jazz dudes. Seeing the accident some freak folkies stopped to help. After everyone was determined to be ok all went back to some 70's pad with an orange shagg rug. Then everyone spent the night watching Alejandro Jodorowski film. In the morning a jam erupted and this music was born.  To read a thorough review of this album (as well as a preview of the release show that already happened) to here Portland Mercury.

The Royal Violent Birds-Canvas Edition SOLD OUT!!! - Thanks to everyone that bought the special edition

These very limited handcrafted editions come encased in a special sewn black canvas sleeve. I personally put each one of these together myself. The vinyl is on stunning half black and white, and looks great spinning on the turntable (sounds great too). Also included is two buttons, one Gorbie Inernational Records patch, and a sticker.  I only made about 30 of these, so this wont be around long.

Jon Ransom's CD "On A Lark" $10 - Comes in a canvas cover. Hand sewn by Jon. 8 songs on Gorbie International Records

  Jon Ransom's debut CD is an acoustic record, both minimul and lush. It falls somewhere between Okkervill River and Bob Dylan. The basic tracks were recorded live, and a little dubbing was done later.  Jon went to great lengths to give an intimate and memorable debut CD. The CD comes in a hand silkscreened chip board sleeve. And it all comes in a canvas printed case. This is a labor of love and it shows.Jon Ransom's CD
