This week on the Mid-Week Beat we look at the launch of a new record label: Electric Company Records, we have a peek at The Twilight Sad and suggest you check out the new EP from Cuushe. We also have a stonking “and finally” video for you.
Electric Company Records
As most of you know, we are all about DIY here at Brown Paper Tickets. This is why we are hoping to see Electric Company Records achieve great things. They are a truly independent label releasing music from their favorite artists on vinyl, CD, cassette and digital download. They’re doing it their way; with artists that they love and enjoy working with.
Electric Company was first mooted in 2012 when they opened Dixon Street Studios in Glasgow. For them, a record label seemed a natural progression as they continued to forge good relationships with the bands that played & frequented their gigs and recorded and rehearsed in their studios. With their love of doing things themselves and with the luxury of having their own studio to record in, they were in a great position to put out records. The New Fabian Society became their first signing and with the launch of www.electriccompanymusic.com they hope to not only be recording and releasing local artists, but distributing works from bands and artists the world over.
Their maiden release will be available on 7″ vinyl & digital download exclusively from them on Friday, 12th April 2013 and they’re having a release party that night at Nice N Sleazy where The New Fabiian Society are supported by KVB and The Cherry Gaze. Grab your tickets here.
