The Artist's Preferred Record Pressing Plant

Since 2013, The Vindys have become one of the most sought after, premier bands in the Northeast Ohio area with their unique blend of pop, jazz, and rock. Through the incorporation of multiple genres into one cohesive sound, The Vindys have the ability to appeal to a wide audience. Their versatility and incomparable style is one of the many reasons why The Vindys are a rarity amongst other groups. Their professional sound, as well as alluring stage presence and magnetic charisma, is supported by the band’s background and expertise in music performance, education, and production.

The Vindys have shared the stage with nationally recognized solo acts and groups such as Hunter Hayes, Marty Stuart, The Drive-By Truckers, Reeve Carney, The Clarks, Welshly Arms, and Judah & the Lion. Their single “Too Long” was named Number 2 on The Summit FM’s Top 33 Local Songs of 2017.

Their album, Keep Going is available now!

 

Roscoe Mitchell — Discussions

A picture of the cover of Roscoe Mitchell's "Discussions."

Roscoe Mitchell Discussions is an orchestral masterpiece. Four original improvisations, taken from ‘Conversations,’ his second release on Wide Hive Records, have been transcribed and performed by a twenty piece orchestra.

Completing the album are two orchestral improvisations and two duets with Roscoe Mitchell and mesmerizing flutist Wilfredo Terrazas.

Discussions is an achievement in both sound and concept by a leading jazz composer of the modern era.

Liner Notes

 

Dave Zoller — Evidence: The Music of Thelonious Monk

Image result for DAVE ZOLLER AND EVIDENCE MONK

Evidence: The Music of Thelonious Monk is collection of 18 pieces by a giant of jazz, spanning two CDs and three vinyl albums. It is also a career summation by the 75-year old Dallas, Texas-based composer and pianist Dave Zoller, who recorded half of this work in 2012, then suffered the first in a series of three debilitating strokes. Five years later, Zoller recovered and recorded the rest of EVIDENCE.

Republican Hair — High & Tight / The Prince & The Duke

IMG_9910.jpg

Soul Step Records initially released four tracks off the HIGH AND TIGHT EP with SSR-014. Fans couldn’t get enough of Republican Hair. The limited edition vinyl quickly sold out. It was some time later when SSR was approached again from Republican Hair, with a pair of songs off a very different sounding – The Prince and the Duke. The single “Miss Prince” was put out on vinyl into the world…it was an even bigger hit. This track was favorited and even highlighted by NPR & Consequence of Sound.

Now comes the LP of all of High & Tight & The Prince and the Duke.

 

Ruby Boots —

Ruby Boots Don't talk About It Album Art

At 14 years old, Ruby Boots—real name Bex Chilcott—left a conflicted home in Perth, Western Australia to do grueling work on pearling boats, and she hasn’t stopped migrating since. Her nomadic streak has taken her around the world, and eventually to Nashville, TN.

Don’t Talk About It charts this drifter’s odyssey, tattered passport in hand. Behind her commanding and versatile voice, sharp guitar playing, and adept songwriting, Ruby Boots confidently maneuvers past the whirlwinds life has tossed on her occasionally lost highway. It’s an album of hope, breakthrough, and handling the unknown challenges around the next bend.

The roads taken, the miles traveled and the voices heard during Ruby’s life’s trek resonate throughout Don’t Talk About It. Informed as much by the wide-open landscapes of her homeland as the intimate writing circles of Nashville, the album may range far and wide but always maintains a firm sense of place. Echoes of first wave UK power pop and jangly punk intersect with the every(wo)man indie and pop-inflected muscle of Best Coast. Classic rock touchstones from T. Rex to the girl group Wall of Sound to personal hero Tom Petty meld with a weary poet’s eye recalling Hope Sandoval.

Preorder now from Bloodshot Records – street date is February 9.

 

Andrew McKeag Band

Devoting a lifetime to music, he’s performed and written for a slew of bands up and down the West Coast. 2004 saw him join multi-platinum iconic Seattle luminaries The Presidents of the United States of America on guitar. He toured everywhere with the band and remained integral to 2008’s critically acclaimed These Are the Good Times People and Kudos to You! in 2014. During Spring 2016, he dove headfirst into penning ideas for what would become Andrew McKeag Band. It proved to be the right time to launch his next act.

In order to capture this vision, he enlisted the talents of drummer Charlie George and bassist John Krylow and recorded with producer Scott Hackwith [The Ramones] in downtown Los Angeles at Cassette Recordings. Immediately, they tapped into an indescribable and inimitable chemistry. “It was a really great experience,” says Andrew. “We all clicked in the studio and turned out the album quickly.”

The Self-Titled debut album is available on limited edition orange vinyl.

Arius Blaze — Meditations In Jazz

Meditations in Jazz is an exploration of a memory. Blaze creates a minimal composition rooted in tape loops, reflecting on a free jazz experience that still exists and unfolds in an abandoned warehouse somewhere in the old slums of a vacant city. Each of the four parts is an atmospheric contemplation, expressing different aspects of the same experience.

2xLP vinyl in TIp-On jacket is available from Folktek Records.
