Bud Bronson & The Good Timers "Between The Outfield And Outer Space" LP Is Coming Soon!

Here's some more big news concerning Denver's shred-tacular Bud Bronson & The Good Timers.  We here at SLN are releasing their brand new LP, "Between The Outfield And Outer Space" on October 12, 2018!  Fans of the band already know, they're an arena rock band with the ethos of garage punks.  This, their second album, revolves around a concept of balancing the future with the present.  BBGT is anthemic and this album sees them playing to their strengths in more concise and powerful methods.  If you loved them before, you'll love them even more now.  You can check out a track on our bandcamp sampler as audio proof that we speak the truth.  The boys will be hitting the road in support of the record in October and will have a homecoming/album release show in November.  "Between The Outfield And Outer Space" is up for pre-order in our BRAND NEW WEB STORE right HERE!  The vinyl is translucent green and it pairs stunningly with the album artwork.  This is a big one folks, don't miss the boat!

Welcome Bud Bronson & The Good Timers And Benchmarks! Split Cassingle On Deck!

We've managed to pull in more top shelf talent!  Bud Bronson & The Good Timers and Benchmarks are officially joining the SLN family on 9/7/18 with the release of a brand new split cassingle.  The cassingle is a joint effort between us and Denver's new upstart imprint, Motorcycle Potluck Records.  Benchmarks' full time label, Sofaburn, is also in the mix.  Really, MPR is doing the heavy lifting on this one and we're just tagging along, so be sure you keep up with what all MPR has coming out.  Bud Bronson & The Good Timers, or BBGT for short, are some of Denver's liveliest and loveliest boys and they contribute their newest song 'Back To The Womb' for their side of the split.  BBGT's brand of punked up power-pop has a broad appeal and they are just a couple of lucky breaks away from being an arena rock band.  Yup, they're that good.  Hailing from Nashville, TN, Benchmarks are equally catchy and fired their expertly crafted new anthem 'The Good Fight' onto their side of the split.  Benchmarks are truly alternative rock, a style that hearkens back to a time before that descriptor was a negative catch-all for the wannabe rock stars of the 90's.  Here's the thing about Benchmarks... they sound like rock stars.  A couple lucky breaks for them and they'll be joining BBGT on the Billboard rock charts.  So I guess we'll keep a few tapes in a box and put them on eBay in a few years so we can retire early!  Make sure you grab yours when it comes out!
