Now Taking Pre-orders for Sonny Knight And The Lakers “Sooner or Later”

Oct 2016


As many of our valued customers already know, we have been impacted heavily by the industry-wide delays in vinyl manufacturing. In an effort to better serve you, we decided to postpone the release of a few new titles until we knew for sure that the wax had been pressed. This will help us avoid excessively long wait times for pre-orders to ship. Today we’re happy to announce that the new Sonny Knight And The Lakers LPs are all pressed up! With that great news we are now able to set a new release date for this much anticipated release. Standard edition LPs and CDs will be available in retail outlets everywhere on November 18. But, if you pre-order your LP now, you will receive a hand-numbered limited edition clear vinyl pressing. We’ve only made 200 of these, so this offer is of course only good while supplies last. Get yours before they’re all gone!

Sonny Knight And The Lakers Release Date Bumped

Oct 2016
Sooner or Later, the sophomore studio release from Sonny Knight And The Lakers has run into some of the same vinyl manufacturing delays we’ve seen with other releases over the last year and a half. However, it isn’t nearly as bad as other releases, due in part to a change in manufacturers.

Originally the release date was set for October 14, 2016, but vinyl will not be ready by then. Although the CDs are ready (and available at the band’s merch table after shows), at the behest of our distribution partners, we’ve decided to hold off the release date of all formats to November 18.

However, due to the local release party and media attention, the CD is available now at Twin Cities based record shops.

LPs should be ready well before November 18, and we will soon start taking pre-orders for a limited edition clear vinyl pressing.

Sorry for the delays. We just want to make sure they’ll be ready before we start taking preorders.

Stay tuned for more info.

Black Market Brass Cheat And Start A Fight Due Out September 16, 2016

Jul 2016
We’re extremely excited to be releasing BMB’s debut LP.  We released their first (and only) 45 back in 2013.  Since then the band has been hard at work gigging, writing, and solidifying their lineup.   Determined to add something meaningful to the Afrobeat genre rather than simply create derivative works, in the last few years they’ve developed their own very unique take on the genre by blending it with other types of music from Africa.
We can’t wait to share it with you soon!  We’ll be releasing info on preorder shortly.  In the meantime, here is the cover art.
