am 800 sound
hi everyone! we are super thrilled to announce that we have partnered up with our friends in no grave like the sea, and katmai, to start a new collective called “am 800 sound”. we sort of stumbled on the idea of working together to release records, put on shows and build around a like-minded community. the seeds for our new collective began when we released a small digital benefit EP for a friend’s home that was badly damaged in a storm. realizing that we all wanted to self release albums and provide the outlet to other like-minded artists, am 800 sound was born. we have a stacked release schedule for the rest of 2016.
starting with “Estelle”, the debut album from No Grave Like The Sea. The debut single, “There Is Good Reason To Be Worried, (a punching swing out of the gate blending a wash of guitar and piano saddled by driving bass and drums) is up for streaming along with the pre-order of the limited LP on their bandcamp page.
next up is the lush, ambient, and meditative debut album from solo artist Katmai, whose long-awaited full length is slated for a late August release.
finally! our album, “alturas”, will be out late september. we are finalizing a few things, but we are super excited to share the album with you!
later in the year we have the 2nd full length album from west chester pa’s north end, and the debut album from the Azure Vault (which features our very own tim cooper and steve molter of the band Beware of Safety).
you can keep tabs on all the am 800 stuff including show announcements, and release details.
