Don't Worry About It! ZEPHR Has A New Album Coming Out In November!


ZEPHR began on a whim between three buddies, much like many other bands. But then that thing happened where it all clicked and they quickly became more than the sum of their parts. Each member contributes passion and ability in unison, and the result is nothing short of joy. You can hear it in their songs, and you can see it in their smiles when they play. On their debut full length, “Don’t Worry About It,” ZEPHR presents the listener with lean, melodic, punk rock tunes essenced with the earworms of powerpop, and the scrappiness of early 90’s indie rock. The record is both anthemic and intimate. It is gruff and also tender. Ultimately, it is something special. And we can all use a little more “special” in our lives right now.  "Don't Worry About It" is set to hit the streets on 11/13/20 and you can pre-order the vinyl LP in our WEB STORE right now (check out the limited art print edition!).  There are also cool new ZEPHR t-shirts, whiskey tumblers and koozies, plus an LP & Merchandise Super Saver Mega Bundle.  ZEPHR just released a new single from the album, 'Casey', today.  It's on our BANDCAMP as a digital single and also on our sampler, plus it's on ZEPHR's own bandcamp too.  'Casey' is also on all the other digital/streaming spots of the modern age. 
All revenue generated by the single will be split evenly between Black Lives Matter 5280 and Denver Homeless Out Loud.  Thanks for listening and supporting us, ZEPHR, all our other amazing bands and the organizations/causes we all try to help.  We're all better together!  XOXO!

Two New Flexi Discs Are Coming Soon!


Hey gang!  We've done vinyl, lathe cuts and cassettes over the last nine years.  Now it's time to add flexi discs to the resume!  That's right, those cool semi-translucent flexible (literally) sheets that have the grooves to rock your favorite new song or two.  Our first two flexi discs will be released on 10/2/20: The Animal Steel "Smooth Jazz Chords" and Charlie Continental & Heaty Beat "We're Getting Fixed (The Grawlix Save The World) Original & Remix".  
 
'Smooth Jazz Chords' by The Animal Steel is an exclusive track from the same sessions that yielded their pending SLN full length debut, "A Surefire Way To Get Sober".  Oh, and please welcome The Animal Steel to the SLN family!  This flexi disc marks the first physical release by The Animal Steel (FKA Dangerous Friends) and comes on a translucent blue square 7" with a double-sided cover insert and download code.  Beginning today, 20% of every 'Smooth Jazz Chords' purchase (both flexi and digital) will be donated to Save Our Stages.  
 
Charlie Continental's 'We're Getting Fixed (The Grawlix Save The World) [Original]' is the theme song to the podcast The Grawlix Saves The World and was previously only available digitally.  Charlie Continental & Heaty Beat's 'We're Getting Fixed (The Grawlix Save The World) [Remix] is just that, a remix of the original song as performed and recorded by the sensational Heaty Beat.  As you might recall, Heaty Beat previously remixed Charlie Continental's 'Quit Wastin' My Time', the theme song to the truTV show Those Who Can't.  The translucent green square 7" flexi disc pairs both of these songs together and comes with a double-sided cover insert and download code.  This is the only format that these two songs come together on.  Charlie's Original & Edit were digitally released a few months back and Heaty Beat's Remix makes it's debut on the flexi disc and will be a separate digital single.  Also, beginning today, 20% of every purchase/donation (both flexi and digital) of any and all versions of 'We're Getting Fixed (The Grawlix Save The World)' will be donated to Black Lives Matter
 
You can pre-order the Charlie Continental & Heaty Beat flexi disc in our Web Store HERE and The Animal Steel flexi disc HERE.  We're also offering a combo deal where you can save a little money grabbing both flexis at the same time HERE.  We're excited to add flexi discs to our formats and have more planned in the future.  Thanks for following along!

Former Lives Joins The SLN Roster And Launches Benefit Track For Mutiny Information Cafe!


Portland, OR via Denver, CO bedroom project Former Lives has just joined the SLN roster and released a debut single called 'Joy Of Missing Out' as a benefit track to help Mutiny Information Cafe get through these unprecedented times.  You can donate and download from our bandcamp HERE as well as their bandcamp HERE. Thanks so much for helping if you can. Full info via Former Lives is below!

Former Lives
"Joy Of Missing Out"
SLN-FAV10


"Joy Of Missing Out" is the first single from Former Lives, a bedroom project from Portland, OR resident and Denver, CO native Sean Klassen. It is a donation-based track with proceeds benefiting Mutiny Information Cafe (mutinyinfocafe.com) in Sean's old Denver neighborhood, Baker.


Things are pretty scary right now. I don’t think anyone really knows what’s going to happen out there but one thing I do know is that small businesses are hurting. And these places are the hearts of our neighborhoods. They’re sources of culture and community.
 

Mutiny Information Cafe is a book and coffee shop that embodies everything I love about the Baker neighborhood in Denver—a neighborhood I lived in far longer than anywhere else in my life. It has an endless supply of cool books, records, and art. It’s a friendly gathering place for all ages that makes a good cup of coffee. And it’s off kilter in just the right way.

Shortly before moving to Portland for a new job opportunity, I was collaborating on some songs with my friend Jenn in a spare bedroom at my home in Baker. I thought all of the work we had done together was lost in my move. But recently, I discovered a few of her vocal tracks from some of those songs on an old hard drive. One in particular stood out to me. Joy of Missing Out was written as a tongue-in-cheek anthem for introverts but it takes on a new meaning these days as we’re all staying at home. So, I decided to take Jenn’s vocal track, re-record the rest of the song, and put it out into the world. Maybe it’ll make you smile. Or even better, maybe it’ll give you a reason and a way to support Mutiny right now. It makes me think of a home I loved so much and a neighborhood I want to see make it through these strange times.

Stay safe. Stay home. Wash your hands.

Sean

Wax Trax Records (www.waxtraxrecords.com) is an independently owned record shop in Denver, CO. It also happens to be my favorite record store in the world. While I love many record shops (especially Denver shops), I've been a consistent Wax Trax customer since 1994. It was THEE place to go for underground and DIY music when I was a teenager and I will never forget the feeling of discovering so much about music and life within those walls. They've been supportive of not just my labels and bands over the years, but anyone else's that have come to them with records and ideas that offered various contributions to Colorado's front range independent musical community. The musical landscape is ever-changing and through it all, Wax Trax is still here and as vital as ever. This is a little something we can do to help our friends at the shop get by while their doors are shut. If you'd like to help us help them, please do so. Please also be sure to take care of yourselves and your loved ones. Support all the other folks that you're able to in this time of need too. Thanks so much and be well!
