08/14/2016 - Related Records is over 3 years old now! To celebrate download this compilation of music we've released in the last year. Our Beastie Boys tribute compilation is finally finished and ready for download too!

 

We've got 3 new releases coming out in the next month too!

 

First the new Human Behavior full length "Kedumim" which I gotta say is their best release so far. It comes out officially on September 2nd. You can pre-order a copy of it here. It will ship out August 29th. Vinyl release is available through folktale records.

 

Next is the first full length from The Pooches. I have been a fan of these guys for the past couple years and I was so excited when they approached me about releasing their new album on cassette. I special ordered olive green colored cassettes that turned out amazing! This album comes out officially on September 9th. You can pre-order it here. All Pre-orders will ship out on September 5th. Vinyl release is available through Lame-O records. This album has already received some great press from Impose Magazine and Stereogum.

 

Then on September 19th we are officially releasing the debut release from the Drew Danburry/John-Ross Boyce project known as The Funny Uncles. This is over 100+ minutes of music spanning between 3 Red, White and Blue colored cassettes. The album will also feature a zine of amazing illustrations from John-Ross. His artwork is so cool! and I know everyone is going to want it. Related Records is pre-ordering a VERY limited number of these, you can order it here. Orders will be shipped out as soon as it's finished (which will probably be the first or second week of September) The rest of the copies of this release will be with the duo while they are on tour this fall go here for full tour schedule.

05/04/2016 - We are currently in the middle of packing up for our big move to Los Angeles, CA on the 10th.

 

But we had to update the website to let you know about a couple of cool things.

 

#1. De'Lunula premiered the new Fathers Day music video for the song "Disney World" you can view the video below and read about the video here.

 

 

#2. Our next compilation is in the works. It is a tribute to the punk & hardcore career of the Beastie Boys. More info on that can be found here. Submission deadline is July 26th. The compilation will be released on August 4th (which is the 35th anniversary of the very first beastie boys show)

 

 

03/26/2016 - A bunch of new releases are coming out in the next few months but instead of about plugging all of that I wanted to share all the new awesome music videos that have come out so far this year.

 

The first two are from Treasure Mammals new album "I Will Cut You With My EBT Card"

 

Treasure Mammal "Missed Connections (Featuring Lonna Kelley)" 

 

Treasure Mammal - "Cassette (Featuring R Stevie Moore)"

 

And just yesterday WhatYouth.com premiered a new video for Mia Loucks "Girls" from "The Sister Honey Demos"

 

Oh and we are moving to Los Angeles, CA in May. AHHHHHH!!!!! 

 

12/20/2015 - The Two new releases from James Kochalka are here!

 

First is Famey a 3-song sound collage made by James Kochalka back in 1991. Side B is the entire tape played in reverse.

 

Second is a formal cassette release of his 2012 master piece "Beautiful Man" which was previously only available online as a digital download. This album was recently reviewed by Vice magazine where they compared James Kochalka Superstar to Ty Segall and Mac DeMarco. James Kochalkas response was "who are they?"

 

 

 

Both releases are amazing and we are so excited to now have James Kochalka be a member of the Related Records family. You can buy them both in our webstore here.

 

We also finally released our most beautiful digital compilation to date Unlimited Semiosis Volume 1

Unlimited Semiosis is completely free and there is more info on each of the artists available if you click on the individual songs.

 

11/21/2015 - The new Treasure Mammal LP is here and we have sold more than half of the copies already. Sorry I didn't post this earlier. It came out November 7th and we've been really busy filling orders and with the next few releases. Every album copy is on hand poured colored wax! and the album features so many amazing artists including (but not limited to) Wayne Coyne, R. Stevie Moore, Yvonne Lambert, Robin Vinning, Lonna Kelley and more! Only 300 were made and If we do a re-issue the colored wax is unlikely. So you should pick up a copy ASAP.

 

You can listen, download and purchase the album here.

 

We are also pleased to announce the next 2 releases are going to be from an artist we have admired for such a long time....

MR. JAMES KOCHALKA!

 

Hopefully a week or so before Chirstmas we will have TWO Kochalka Quality releases ready for the masses. And just in case we don't update the website with the news you should follow us on instagram where we post something at least every other day and on our facebook where things get posted regularly too.

10/05/2015 - Mia Loucks first full length album is here. It's titled "The Sister Honey Demos." We have so many nice things we could say about this album but, feel its better and more exciting for you to just listen for yourself so you can have the same exciting feeling as we did upon discovering this beautiful artist.

 

You can purchase the album through our web store.

 

07/19/2015 - Related Records is officially over two years old now! Our first digital compilation of the new year is called "Unlimited Semiosis"

 

"This compilation is inspired by many things primarily Jean Molino's theory that all music is the result of Semiosis and by Splinter Cakes 2008 Masterpiece "Snapped" which you can listen to here

The concept of this album is simple steal another artists instrumental track and add lyrics/words to it. It can be any genre or from any period of time. You can add to the instrumental if you want but stealing the audio from another instrumental recording is the key ingredient to this project.

The deadline to send in your finished track is November 17th. Please send all of your songs in a .wav format to majestic.ryan@gmail.com

Have fun and please share this with other artists/musicians who you think would enjoy it."

 

To stay updated with the progress of this project join to the Facebook event page.

We have a bunch of new releases all coming out in the next couple months too. We don't know if we will be able to afford them all. So we cut the prices on a lot of the stuff on our online store in hopes to sell more. Check out what we have to offer here.

 

05/02/2015 - The next digital compilation is called "Everybody's Looking At Their Phone"; we want this compilation to be more than just a digital comp, and we are trying to raise some money to release limited edition post cards and t-shirts with original artwork by David Bessent.

 

We also have two brand new releases coming out this month. First, is "Songs For Savages" by The Freaks of Nature. which will be officially released on May 16th, and will be available on CD and cassette.

 

Then is a split from Human Behavior (from Tucson, AZ) / Basement (from San Francisco, CA) which is officially released on May 26th.

 

But, both of these releases are/will be available through our online store and from the artists directly within the next week.

 

04/26/2015 - We regret to inform those who are still unaware, of the passing of our friend Space Alien Donald.

* * * Eulogy for Donald Thomas Roth * * *
My uncle was a Space Alien,
An intergalactic oddity who time-travelled the galaxy all his life,
Tripping circuits and scooping tachyrons into pretty glass jars, mesmerized when they lit up like fireflies.
He collected rocks; slept in deserts; flaunted gaudy hats…and memorized all of Lewis Carroll’s “Jabberwocky”.
This last point is not true, but he would have wanted it to be.
My uncle was a Space Alien.
He called himself “the World’s Oldest Gay Canadian Rapper” and kept YouTube time in rigid boombox beats.
He ate cake and ice cream every day without guilt.
He experimented, collected data, kept notebooks, made pronouncements…
But all his life, I think what he wanted most was to sneak up on Gravity and catch a shot of her naked so he could share it with Einstein in a parallel universe.
Maybe that’s where he is now.
* * *Space Alien Donald was born in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada to Thomas and Anne Roth in 1935. He died in his sleep in Phoenix, Arizona on April 20, 2015, five months shy of his 80th birthday. * * *

We miss Donald very much. We don’t need to say much else, his life, music, art, science and existence speaks for itself. Here is a new video of him performing the song “The Moon” at Braggs Pie Factory in 2013. We hope it makes your day a little better.

SECOND we have the debut full length from a man known throughout the universe. Mr. Space Alien Donald

 
This album is going to be released in cassette AND compact disc formats and will certainly be a "must have" for anyone who enjoys anything remotely interesting.

But more info on those things when once they actually come out. In the meantime, did you know that we have an instagram now? and did you submit something to the next FREE digital compilation yet? YOU SHOULD DO THAT NOW! We have already received a grip of songs and they are all very different and strange. This is going to be a great compilation for sure!


06/18/2014 - JEEZ! Sorry for the lack of website updates. If you've been following us on tumblr or facebook or keeping an eye on our bandcamp page you would know what we have been up to. At any rate, we just released "Cadet Beach Party!" by The Aquabats on June 6th with our good friends Pirate Ship Records and we are already more than half way sold out of our stock. So make sure you buy a copy before they all sell out!

 

 

We are also running a very awesome deal on our web store where you can get one of everything we have released in the first year of being a label for only $50! Which is over $20 in savings! BUY THAT HERE!

 

 We also released "Live Through THIS!: A 20 Year Anniversary Tribute to Hole's Best Album" and it is probably the coolest and most diverse digital compilation we have done so far. Make sure you check that out and if you like the artwork you can order a print from Later Operator.

 

 

01/16/2014 - the website is finally updated! check out the band page and the "releases" page because they got the biggest facelift of them all! also we are proud to announce 3 NEW TAPE RELEASES COMING OUT NEXT MONTH!

 

FIRST is Serene Dominic's seasonal classic "Winter Trance Party" this is the first time this has ever been available on Cassette and will hopefully introduce a whole new audience of people to the wonderful/bizarre sounds of Phoenix Arizona's most under appreciated artist EVER! listen to it here.

 

SECOND is going to be a hit with all historical and story craving music nerds! It is Serene Dominic: The Holiday Slides Project "Can You Count The Brunettes?" You see back in 1986 Serene was in a pop band called "The Holiday Slides" who released a full length cassette on their vanity label $in¢ere Records. They only made about 300 copies but the printer they were getting the Jcards from told them they had to get 500 made. So Serene held onto these Jcards for over 25 years! and then Re-Recorded the whole album himself and we are releasing those recordings packaged with the original "Vintage" Jcards. You can listen to it here.

 

 

THIRD is the tape version of Mary Ochers album "Eden" which was recorded and produced by the amazing King Kahn last year. This special limited edition tape is in support of her first USA tour! Make sure you check her website for details on where to catch her when she comes to your city.

 

 

ALSO we are pleased to announce the next FREE digital compilation project is a tribute to Hole's legendary album "Live Through This." More info on that can be found here
