Down In The Valley - Music, Movies, Minneapolis & More

Down In The Valley excluisve colorway, limited to only 300 copies.

Oakland's Samiam unleashed their sixth album, "Astray," in 2000, and it's a heart-wrenching masterpiece. Samiam blends punk energy with alt-rock vibes and a melancholic undertone, all wrapped in a smartly produced soundscape. Astray doesn't shy away from darkness, confronting heavy themes like suicide with raw honesty and searing emotion. The music itself reflects the weight, rumbling bass-heavy guitars amplifying the somber mood. Amidst the intensity, gems like "Mud Hill." "Sunshine." & "Dull" (arguably their crown jewel) shines through, resonating with anyone who's ever felt the weight of sadness. Marking a band turning point, this was Samiam's last album with founding guitarist James Brogan and first with bassist Sean Kennerly. In 2023, Samiam would regroup and release "Stowaway" their ninth album and remain one of the most endearing and enduring punk bands of their generation. For Fans Of: Jawbreaker, Dillinger Four, Face to Face, Lagwagon.
