welcome to three lobed recordings.

october 9, 2020 will see the release of soundkeeper, the fourth album from the gunn-truscinski duo. this duo has long held a special place within the three lobed catalog. to crib from jesse jarnow's essay, "with a decade-long partnership that is far more like a real band than their discography might imply, soundkeeper is the duo's fourth proper album. no one-off blowing session carved into tracks, soundkeeper is a focused realization of the pair's full dynamic sweep. it's music that goes straight for it, ecstasy and flotation and otherness, neither songs nor jams. perhaps more like windows. or events. it's music that immediately goes out, gets out, stays out, has always been out, a glowing radius around the amp and drum kit, intimate even at volume." soundkeeper is here to provide you with the care that you need. released on 2xLP, CD, and digital, this album is open for pre-orders for delivery in advance of the street date. soundkeeper is a part of the three lobed recordings 20th anniversary series alongside several other LPs by other long-standing three lobed family members / favorites.

july 10,2020 saw the release of music for walks, the debut album from silver scrolls. silver scrolls is a DC/NC duo consisting of dave brylawski (polvo, idyll swords, black taj) and brian quast (polvo 2.0, vanilla trainwreck, the BQs, the cherry valence, etc.) and their craft in trade is rock. what kind of rock? well, music for walks is an amalgamation of psych rock, 90s indie rock, math rock, classic rock and prog rock that spins all of of these ideas down into two side-long suites. heady and refined, the perfect soundtrack for your urban(e?) walks or your nature walks. be prepared. released on LP and digital.

look out! october 12, 2019 signalled the release of wet tuna's water weird. this is the second album - and first for three lobed - by this duo consisting of matt "MV" valentine and pat "pg six" gubler. whether you have been riding with these guys since the days of tower recordings, a hardcore fan of MV&EE, or just got on recently, you are in luck - the tuna present music for all people in all stations of life. water weird presents six new tuna jams, all ready to expand your headspace. released on LP and digital, this one is ready for order/immediate shipment now.
