We’ve Got a Record Deal!

YBPGPR_Blog

Hey hey,

We have amazing excitement in our bones, so we’re here to share. Our long awaited covers album, GOOD PEOPLE ROCK, is now officially being released on April 14th by Dan Mangan’s boutique label, Madic Records (part of the Arts & Crafts family). You can pre-order the album today in vinyl and digital download formats (we recommend the vinyl, but hey – it’s up to you!). Check it out here.

GOOD PEOPLE ROCK is a collaborative album like no other. Covers of YBP artists mixed and recorded by other YBP artists, including Andrew Bird, Alec Ounsworth (of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah), Dan Mangan, Elvis Perkins, Hayden, Micah P. Hinson, Keaton Henson, King Creosote and more.  It really is as good as it sounds. Until you hear it, then it’s infinities times better. Give it a spin.

New “Shark Week” tee from CHVRCHES

chvrches_blog

Check out our latest t-shirt design from CHVRCHES. Here’s the story, according to the band, of how this tee came to be:

The idea for this design is an easy one to explain. In the early days of the band… we came up with the hare-brained idea that we were going to play a few warm-up shows under a pseudonym… “Shark Week”. In the end we chose not to go with that name because we would probably have gotten sued by a popular television channel but also because it sounded a bit fierce, a bit loaded. Chvrches was more universal, bigger sounding, more of a blank canvas, so that’s what we went for in the end. This t-shirt design is a tribute to the electronic pop outfit whose career was very short lived indeed. Just three short but sweet shows in their home territory.

Note: as a Black Friday / Cyber Monday spesh, we’re offering FREE SHIPPING for all North American customers – from now until Monday only!
