A belated Christmas present for you all. I will be launching a tiny 7” label in the new year. It will only release Australian artists on 7” vinyl. In a lot of ways its a way for me to discover new Australian artists and give a bit back to the music world. The blog has been such a great creative outlet for me and I think its only fair to repay it with something like this. I also think it would be great to see more Australian artists on vinyl, there are so many that deserve it but don’t get the opportunity. Brown Lingerie
For the most part this label is only going to make monetary losses. With limited presses of 250 vinyls and the fact that they have to be shipped all over the world twice makes this label quite a costly venture (they are pressed in Germany and distributed from Sydney). It will be run by my good friend Lucas Frey and myself. He is the one who really pushed the idea and will be putting in 50% of the dough. He doesn’t have a music blog or anything, but he digs music muchly, so follow his photo tumblr and his twitter for good luck.
Our first release has already been pressed and are lying at Lucas’ German residence , the announcement and pre-orders will begin around next week with a release planned for February 10. I cannot tell you how excited we are to get these vinyls out to the world.
The label will be a lot of hard work, but I still don’t think it should be taken too seriously. I’ll be blogging exactly the same way as I always have, except once in a while I’ll release something on vinyl. Either way, I hope you like this blog enough to support us so we can keep making records.
