Slowtrain Becomes A Label
Some wonderful news today from CityWeekly's Gavin Sheehan:
Chris and Anna Brozek have done so much for the local music community, its insane to list it all. Aside from prominently featuring locals and turning the small Broadway store into THE hub for all things indie, the two have become community leaders almost overnight and have given our music scene a jolt of energy it was starting to lack just five years ago. So what would be the next step for them? How about starting their very own record label?
In a press release so fresh today that the damn ink hasn't dried yet, the two will be starting Slowtrain Records, taking from the store's own namesake, focusing on local releases from musicians and bands of every stripe. In fact the first release will be the upcoming full-length album from The Devil Whale this fall, due to be a vinyl pressing. Slowtrain will also be working with Advanced Media Solutions to “create many local limited-edition Record Store Day releases that celebrate the region’s thriving, vibrant scene and, perhaps, introduces it to a broader audience.”
