In North of the Dial a few weeks back, we brought your attention to the newly formed Denton-based Play Pinball! Records.

Founders Chris Engberg and Trent Ostvig have been busy, and, though they are still readying the vinyl label's dual debut releases for a late-August/early-September drop date, today they've uploaded songs to their Myspace page from both the Fungi Girls' full-length debut Seafaring Pyramids and a Bad Sports track taken from the compilation album Denton Denton USA! to their

In sorta related news (as if I wasn't already looking forward to the compilation enough), Engberg says that in addition to tracks by Wax Museums, Teenage Cool Kids, Bad Sports, Fergus & Geronimo, The Uptown Bums, Wiccans, Secret Bangs, the album will feature a song by Video, that great new Denton act I raved about last week.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
