For volume 7 of his Ball of Wax quarterly music compilation, Levi Fuller teamed up with us, J-Shirt Records. The result is the DVD edition, featuring music videos from 18 different artists from across the US, in DVD quality. Why? Because we know a lot of talented people, and the postage-stamp, tin can quality of youtube doesn’t do them justice.

This is the last album from the late, great Seattle band Dorkweed, titled Sometimes Animals Die. In addition to being prolific (releasing five LPs, an EP, and a DVD between 1998 and 2004), Dorkweed was an energetic and extremely fun live act, and one of our favorite bands ever.

“Dorkweed are power pop with balls. And bite. And, um, creamed corn? As the name (and the song about creamed corn) suggests, Dorkweed have a slightly skewed view on life and how to react to it–which makes their highly infectious songs that much more satisfying to sing along to. And you will.”
– Barbara Mitchell, the Stranger.

“On the Seattle band’s sixth release Some Animals Die, [Brent Amacher’s] cool coarseness melded with the high-powered pop melodies sniff of Pixies’ crankiness and Weezer’s tongue-in-cheek silliness.”
Three Imaginary Girls.
