Elated to announce CM’s third compilation is now available on Bandcamp and major streaming sites! This one is stacked with plenty of local SC goodness and also friends from around the world!
Debut album by the blackened solo project of Eddie Newman, PROSPERITY GOSPEL. This record is a reflection of the south: swarms of cicadas in the pine trees, droning away as an unlucky soul, lost in the swamps, succumbs to heat and the weight of gloom. The lyrical content of the record responds to the existential crisis of environmental annihilation, the dehumanization of late stage capitalism, and the ecstasy of the void.
Available on CD/digital via Comfort Monk and also on most streaming platforms March 31st.
100% of pre-order sales will go directly to New Brookland Tavern in an effort to support them through the pandemic. PRE-ORDER HERE.
On December 7th, 2019 Dear Blanca set out to record what would be Marc’s last show with the band before moving to Colorado. Sometime after this it was discovered that the hard drives were fried and the project was lost. Mysteriously, these recordings of the show were later found on a computer at New Brookland Tavern and no one knows how these ghost recordings even exist. Thanks to Carlin Thompson at NBT for unearthing the stems that were labored over by Jay Matheson at Jam Room Recording Studio.
All tracks recorded at New Brookland Tavern on December 7th, 2019 except “Temporary Solution” & “Boulders” – recorded at Township Auditorium on August 27th, 2020.

We here at CM are proud to announce the release of a new single from the upcoming Dear Blanca full length, entitled “Perched”! It’s got the electric jolts, energetic jams, and extensive jaunt that you’ve come to expect from this Big Star-influenced powerhouse.

We at Comfort Monk are beside ourselves with excitement to announce the new Stagbriar single “The Flu,” released today in advance of their August 21st offering of long-awaited sophomore LP “Suppose You Grow.”
“The Flu” is built upon rumbling cello and soft percussion, establishing a frame to support the tight harmonies, sung like a pizzicato string section. Its atmosphere and lyrics are a pensive reflection on one’s defense mechanisms.
Hear the new track and pre-order the record here! Available on vinyl, CD, and digital formats on 8/21/2020 via Comfort Monk/Stagbriar.
We recruited several artists to record covers of guests from the Comfort Monk podcast. A spontaneous collaborative project that far surpassed our expectations. Thank you so much to all involved. This is Gratitude Volume One.
