We have a brand new feature launching today: Label Spotlight. There are a ton of small labels working their asses off to bring you music they truly believe in and I wanted to have a chance to give these labels and bands some attention in hopes that you’ll find some new bands you enjoy and some new labels to pay attention to. Our first feature is with Take This To Heart Records (T3H, for short).
Take This To Heart Records is a Massachusetts based record label run by Joe Urban and was started as a way to earn college credit. Since 2012, it’s become so much more than just a project for credit and the label has acquired a good sized roster to help develop in hopes of watching them bloom. The label focuses on vinyl release while also offering digital versions and bundles that often include some great band shirts. Now it’s time to introduce you to the bands.
Dead Leaves/PINE – November 6th (Pre-orders available here)
Some of the recent releases we’ve been digging from the label have been Fail Better by Nerve Clinic and Dig Up A Miracle by Sundressed. Both have potential to end up on my Albums (and EPs) of the Year list. The label has great taste in music and has done a great job with picking bands to work with. You can stream both of the releases in full below and pick up copies here.
