629 b/w DUST STORM EP - 2016
Looking for a little summertime music? Well, look no further! We just released this little gem of an EP with a dose of good old American spy intrigue and a tale of what has been described as the "greatest man-made ecological disaster in history". What else could make for a more cheerful soundtrack to a nostalgic road trip exploration? Anywho, get your little fanny over to our Bandcamp page and take this little baby for a spin!

    CAN'T SEE THE FOREST - 2013
Our 3rd studio album features songs about camping trips gone bad, people that taste colors and smell pictures, and landfills creeping into the sea. It's a kaleidoscopic musical journey, at times heavy and complex, and at others unabashedly poppy, and with lots of the weird chord progressions and riffs that we loooove to indulge in. Hear samples and order at CDBaby. Read a review of CSTF here at Aural Innovations.
 
         
    JET PROPULSION MYSTERY SUMMER - 1998
Our second, and probably most experimental (thus far) release. Agressive, fast-paced, complex, and avant garde. At times, this is almost brutal-prog, but there's a lot more to this album than that. Features Flying Luttenbachers and Lovely Little Girls alumni Alex Perkolup on bass and vocals. Hear samples and order at our Bandcamp page and read the wonderful review Jerry Kranitz gave it at Aural Innovations.
 
         
    STAR PERIOD STAR - 1996
Our debut album has it all from indie-rock songs you can sing along with to agressive/complex Crimsonishness, to Sonic Youthy microtonal experiments. Features Cheer-Accident alumni Chris Block on bass. Read Organ magazine's review of it here. Hear samples and order at our Bandcamp page.
 
         
    THE SWIVEL NECK JUSTIFIES THE HAND - 1998 IMPROV CD
Using guitars, "tuned" wrenches and other doo-dads, we did this long-ass improv with special guest Ron Jagielnik. RJ has such a great sensibility, this piece came out just smashingly well. Very moody, lots of dynamics. TSNJTH features the Jet Propulsion Mystery Summer line-up, ie: Dave Rosato on drums, Alex Perkolup on bass, Dan Sweigert on guitars, and RJ. Order it here at ZNR Records.
