For The Record - A Tribute To John Wicks

Known for his work with/as The Records, John Wicks was about to record the vocal tracks for this latest batch of songs before his untimely passing in late 2018. In his stead, friends and pop luminaries have gotten together to see that his final compositions were completed. It's a very personal goodbye and a testament to how much John was loved and appreciated by his peers. The project was masterfully coordinated by Rich Rossi, one of John’s closest friends.

The liner notes include heartfelt tributes by Records drummer Will Birch, Alan Haber, Richard Rossi, and Jamie Hoover. PROCEEDS FROM SALES WILL GO TO JOHN'S SON PERRY, AND TO THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY.

The Embrooks - Nightmare / Helen Vinyl single

After a 10-year hiatus The Embrooks are back, and sounding better than ever. Over the past decade music has changed, fads have come and gone, and “psychedelia” now means literally anything. The Embrooks pop-art stomp however sounds just as it always has, neither dated or of our era – and somehow they seem to sound more powerful and youthful too. Pop music the way it should be.

Vinyl single
Release Date: September 2016

Alejandra O'Leary and the Champions of the West release their new single Burn Me Up

The name tells the tale: Alejandra O'Leary is a melodic mash-up of far-reaching artistic cultures and geographic and musical influences.

Alejandra O'Leary and the Champions of the West are proud to announce the release of their new single: BURN ME UP. The song was conceived and recorded during the sessions for "Heartspace Timepiece" and features all the band's trademarks: dueling guitars, evocative vocals, and a beat to keep time to your dreams.

Combining classic raw rock with a contemporary pop vision, and musical ideas that span the spectrum of pop and rock history, from The Beatles to Elvis Costello, from Liz Phair to The Strokes, O'Leary's music suggests delightfully paired opposites: Hard-charging and luxuriant, defiant and sugar-coated, individual pain and collective ecstasy, physical drive and spiritual transcendence. Rock and roll.

Get the single on Amazon, CDBaby, ITUNES, or Bandcamp.
