RIYL: Wilco, Dr. Dog, Kevin Morby, The Kinks
Label: Ongakubaka Records
Anytime a record collector¬†turns into a record releaser, my ears perk up and my heart starts beating a little faster. ¬†Record collectors perceive¬†the ins and outs¬†of our vast¬†universe in ways that other common folk do¬†not, so the content they curate for our consumption is bound to be pristine. ¬†You know it, I know it. ¬†Meet Dan Nemer and Steve Cuff of Ongakubaka Records.
Formerly known as Lou Breed (awesome name), the newly-christened Marias will be the first to grace Ongakubaka’s catalog. ¬†Fans of the piano-driven cuts from The Kinks and modern songwriters like Kevin Morby and Scott McMicken will find Marias’ brand of indie rock a perfect addition to their collections. ¬†File it next to your Wilco rekkids for all I care. ¬†Me, I’m more of an alphabetical kind of filer, but to each their own.
