IGIF and YVYNYL have announced a joint venture to form Small Plates Records, a label-based cooperative with a goal of initially helping new bands made some 7? vinyl, then eventually moving into a full roster or artists and releases. Their first project will be in the debut vinyl release from NYCsGuards; a7? release with three tracks (Resolution of One is on the a-side, while the double b-side has Crystal Truth and Long Time). A limited run of 500copies on multi-colored vinyl will be available for this release.
Question is, will Indie Music Filter ever form a label?
Well, I’m swamped with the publishing company, maybe if I find the time?
Above, that’s Irish trio Two Door Cinema Club performing an acoustic version of their latest single ‘Undercover Martyn’.
‘Finishing up their debut full length album, Bear Hands will be promoting What A Drag along with songs from their previously self released debut, The Golden EP and boasting new material across the US nationwide this February leading up through SXSW’. You can download the track ‘What A Drag’ from their website, along with a remix and a song called ‘Can’t Stick Em’.
I spent some time today at IGIF and am digging into what they were recommending these days, and was delighted with Airship. Four-piece from Manchester, UK with some great tunes. This year they’ll be putting out a debut LP as well as dates with Editors. Check out the killer track ‘Algebra’ (below), which before this song was only really a killer subject.
