Check out Kowabunga! Kid's video for RKR-019, a flexi featuring two new scary songs. If it's anywhere as scary as that video, I think we're all doomed…..
Tim made this cool YouTube for Dumb Days featuring each comic strip for each song. P. Cool. Cryptic Message @ the bottom?
Cal’s Bobby Darin cover can’t be beat. “Where’s My G.I. Joes? Where’s my Dunkaroos?”
All New Cal!
Listen/purchase: Splish Splash (Bobby Darin) by Cal and the Calories
An idea for a cassingle series has been floating about for awhile and has been in production for almost since the beginning of the year. Today I am happy to announce the Rat King Cassingle Series 2014! Check out the lineup below!
Easter - This is so cool to hear these new songs after a long time. My all time favorite band to come out of Champaign-Urbana by one of my best friends.
Nnamdi Ogbonnaya - Two complete bangers from the Chicago Musical Savant, Nnamdi Ogbonnaya.
Saturday Looks Good to Me - Fred Thomas was kind enough to share two demo versions of future Saturday Looks Good to Me songs. Unbelievably stoked to have him participate.
Cal and the Calories - The reclusive Cal was able to take some time out of his PhD program to record. Included are a new song and a cover of Bobby Darin’s “Splish Splash.”
All tapes are delicately crafted and come in limited quantites!

I am super excited to announce RKR-018, the Teen Freak demo! This female fronted punk band was forged for the Black Sheep Cafe band lotto and features members of Looming and Soap Scum. The music is rude, the lyrics are crude, and the surfer is glued. The tape features five songs (bangers), and will be available before you know it.

Very excited to announce that Single Player is playing Pygmalion Music Festival this fall with bands such as American Football, Into It. Over It., and Panda Bear (to name a few).
