STEVEN DAYVID MCKELLAR RETURNS

We launched our label with Steven Dayvid McKellar’s 2020 debut solo album, ETHIO, which is still one of the best albums I’ve every heard IMHO. We’re beyond thrilled to be once again working with Steven on his follow up album NAMA, coming out September 6th, 2022. To celebrate we’re releasing a special extended digital single featuring the first listen of the new album with the A side “One And Zero” on Tuesday, May 3rd across all streaming platforms. Included with the single will be two B sides: a gorgeous non album piano ballad called “Fading In, Fading Out” and super cool live recorded version of the ETHIO era song “The Promise?” We’re so excited! You can pre-save the extended single here: https://lnk.to/OneAndZero

Debut Album by Gypsum Out Now!

Gypsum’s eponymous debut album is out now and we couldn’t be more proud. We love this album and we love this band. If you dig the jazzy post rock of The Sea and Cake and Karate, the angular sophistication of Sleater-Kinney, or the hazy indie shoegaze of bands like Warpaint and Lush than you’ll fall just as in love with Gypsum as us. Featuring the singles “Give It”, “Follow Me”, and “Lungs”, Gypsum is a record that rewards deep and repeated listening. It is pure magic. SRR006 Gypsum “Gypsum” is out now everywhere rad music streams and Limited Edition 180g clear vinyl due out in January 2022.
