Sonny Knight / Black Market Brass Assembly Party

Nov 2016


On Wednesday night 20 volunteers came down to our space in Loring Park, Minneapolis to help assemble the new Sonny Knight and Black Market Brass albums. It was great to see some familiar faces, as well as make some new friends. We finished assembling all the records in about 3 hours, which included a break for pizza. It’s been over 2 years since our last assembly party. Man, have we ever been missing out!?! Wednesday’s party was a great reminder of just how awesome our customers are, and how music can bring together so many different types of people. Many thanks to everyone who pitched in. Also, a big thanks to the folks at Bauhaus Brewlabs for hooking the volunteers up with some of their delicious beer.

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.
