Happy new year and all that assorted jazz! Thanks so much for all the continued support throughout 2022! We're gonna keep things rolling in 2023 and are pleased to welcome another fresh addition to our roster- Adam Reid & The In-Betweens! Calling Western Massachusetts home, Adam Reid & the In-Betweens is an indie/folk rock project helmed by, you guessed it, Adam Reid. He's performed solo and with a band in the US, UK and Argentina. “The Numbers Keep Repeating” is due out Thursday February 2 on cassette/digital and will be the fifth AR&TI-B (you know we like our abbreviations!) album since 2010. You can pre-order “The Numbers Keep Repeating” from our WEB STORE or our BANDCAMP right now and get the lead single 'Someday Soon We'll All Be Gone' as an immediate download! Our bandcamp sampler also features the very same song. AR&TI-B will be celebrating the release of the album on February 3rd at Ten Forward in Greenfield, MA. We're excited to keep making fun new pals, which in turn helps us keep sharing great new music with all of our friends and fans out in the universe!

Hit song alert! SPELLS has a brand-new digital single out today and it's called "Don't Tell Me Anything". It's a pay-what-you-want track with all proceeds benefiting The Blue Bench, a Denver-based organization working to eliminate sexual assault and diminish the impact it has on individuals, their loved ones and our community through comprehensive issue advocacy, prevention and care. You can donate and download "Don't Tell Me Anything" from our WEB STORE, our BANDCAMP and of course SPELLS' BANDCAMP. This new SPELLS tune is also noteworthy as it's the first recording to feature the band's highly energetic and fantastically talented new member, Dusk Monarch. In addition to that factoid the track also features Stephanie Byrne, the powerhouse front woman for SLN labelmates Cheap Perfume. This collab was years in the making and we're all happy to finally have it out in the world with the added opportunity to support The Blue Bench, a local cause we all believe in. This song won't arrive on streaming platforms until January 5 (2023!), so go on... treat yourself to an awesome new jam ahead of the streamers and help your community while doing so. We ALL thank you for it!

Hello out there! We are very pleased to finally and officially welcome our longtime friends, Discomfort Creature, to Team SLN! The band hails from both Denver, CO, USA and Lugano, Ticino, Switzerland and hops back and forth between the two regions to double the impact of their rock and toll precision. Discomfort Creature features some of our oldest buddies in the biz- Chris Fogal, Ian O'Dougherty and Dan Fox (band members' credits include The Gamits, Uphollow, Little Thunder, plus lots more) playing a high-energy brand of garagey pop-punk with songs that are chock full of hooks and harmonies that get stuck in your head for weeks. OK, more like months! Discomfort Creature's "S/T" (self-titled) LP is a remastered and expanded edition of the band's debut self-titled EP that was released in 2021, including 3 bonus tracks and a revised running order. The vinyl LP was recently released in Europe via Bearded Punk Records (Belgium) as well as Monster Zero Records (Austria) and it will be released in the US of A by us on December 8, 2022. Guess what tho! Pre-orders are up right now! You can pre-order the LP on 12" orange vinyl (digital download included) or as a standalone digital long player from our WEB STORE or our BANDCAMP right now. *Insider Tip*... album pre-orders get the full digital immediately! The latest single, 'Threshold', is up on our bandcamp sampler if you'd like to go check that out. As an added bonus, all mail orders of Discomfort Creature's "S/T" vinyl LP will get a free vinyl LP copy of the Black In Bluhm Music compilation, "Farm To Turntable", while supplies last (go HERE for a look/listen). Finally, for now, Discomfort Creature is having what will be a slightly belated album release party at the Hi-Dive in Denver on December 29, 2022. Come on down and catch up with all the buddies that will be at this one during the holiday season. It's pretty perfect timing really!
