Running a record label often times has the hardship of discovering amazing bands, and eventually mourning the end of an era when bands split up….
As of spring 2013, Agent Ribbons has announced they are ending their seven year musical partnership. This is definitely a heart breaker, but good news is that there are new ventures on the horizon. While Agent Ribbons drummer, Lauren Hess has not announced any future plans Natalie Ribbons has started a new group called Tele Novella, and will be touring the west coast this spring.
Check out some new sounds….
Meanwhile, ORCA TEAM has also called it quits. Dwayne Cullen is pursuing a comedy career in Seattle, Jessica Baldauf has relocated to Houston, TX and Leif Anders has started a new band called Week Of Wonders, which is currently on tour to support their new “Failures” EP. Their song “Touch Of Pearls” will appear on the Cassingle and Loving It compilation Vol. 1.
It’s spring time in Portland and that means bipolar weather (though it has been very friendly lately), staying out late, biking every where, and general thankfulness that is light out past 4pm.
For Cassingle we have some very exciting spring updates! BATH PARTY is going to celebrate their release (i know, it is long overdo) of their self titled cassette on April 19 at our lovely headquarters at Record Room. Their buds Mr Tang and Wire Eyes will join them for an evening of cray. Come out and get your free copy of their tape upon entry. 21+/$5
Nucular Aminals just got back from their European tour and have released a 7″ entitled Alice Day on our friends label, HOVERCRAFT. You must get this. Now. Seriously.
We are still going through the submissions for our compilation. After receiving nearly 80 songs we quickly realized we couldn’t trim it down to 20 songs so we have decided to do two volumes of the compilation instead! More info on the roster will be shared hopefully by early May. Bands hold tight! Of course we will continue the Cassingle tradition and plan a release party for the compilations this summer!
We have stickers now! Come by Record Room and get one! Or just come by to say hi and have a beer….and pick up some vinyl or tapes!
