One of the finer record stores here in our fair city Beacon Sound is making the leap that fellow shops Mississippi and Jackpot have done and are starting their own in-house imprint. They’ve already dipped their toes into that world with a trio of cassette/digital releases, but now they’re looking to dive right into getting out its first vinyl release.

As is the way of our mixed up world, they need some help from their supporters and customers to make it happen. To that end, they’ve enacted a Kickstarter campaign to help them get out their first release: a collaboration between former Yellow Swans member Gabriel Saloman, and multi-instrumentalist Peter Broderick.

And that ain’t all: the store is going to be having a celebration of this new venture in, of all places, my old stomping ground in Seaview, Washington. Held at the Sou’Wester Lodge on October 25th and 26th, the event will feature sets by Messrs. Saloman and Broderick, as well as performances by Grouper, Rauelsson, and Apartment Fox.
