THE NEW ALBUM!*****NEW**********VINYL*****RECORD 2018

                            Only 200 copies available  

$15 Includes digital download card

The concept: One instrument per song, no instrument can be used twice.  This album was the simplest idea, and took longer than anything I've done.

I want to hear the barest bones of each song.  Give me the leanest version possible.  Let me hear the pads letting gently down on the saxophone.  Let me hear your fingers slide on the cello.  Let me hear you breath, let me sit with a long pause of silence.

Cassette & Book combo $12 - Two artists working together. Lending guidance. A barter

About four years ago Dao Strom (The Sea & The Mother) and I came to our agreement:  She would help edit my book of poems and short stories, and I would record her an album.  Now we've completed our agreement, and we are ready to send it out into the ether.  This combo package gives you both the cassette ep with a download card, and my book of short stories and poems.  The cassette is a beautifully made, letter pressed, artisan box.  The music is a result of taking our time, and picking our recording locations.  We recorded at my house, and in an old abandoned house full of ghostly sounds.  My book is a meditation on family, animals, and love.

The Sea & The Mother cassette EP - 6 song ep with download card + 2 bonus songs

Recorded in a house that was falling down around us.  The songs are reflective of that ghostly, hypnotic, and dream like place.  Elements of folk, electronica, and space.  Check out Dao's website to listen The Sea & The Mother.

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.

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
