Come Inside and Close the Door

When City Paper first heard of Malted Milk, we assumed it was a new band. In fact, it’s more of an indie record label/DIY/collective. Released last November, its colorful low-budget ‘zine, Come Inside and Close the Door, included original fiction, Xeroxed notebook paper art, a plug for the Charleston Women’s Collective, poetry, recipes for granola and zucchini bread, comics, and a 23-song compilation disc of underground music acts. As a label, it’s already released recordings by Malted Milk members Oicho Kabu and Ponies & Flowers. 52.5 Records and Chord & Pedal are big fans. We can’t wait for the next volume.
