This isn’t Throw(back) Thursday, but man these DC kids are still painting the town. You might have hit up Galapagos as part of our preemptive look-see at some SXSW action, but the guys on the other side of the booth are bringing back that 80s vibe with Cassette releases and 7″ vinyls of some young talents from across country.

You might know about Cactus Mouth and Cool Things I Find, but they’re combined powers has spewed forth a retro throwback label in Chill Mega Chill Records, a dynamic duo of a production house that’s not only planned three releases within five tumblr posts, but has already set an aesthetic all their own.
