RIYL: Wilco, Dr. Dog, Kevin Morby, The Kinks
Label: Ongakubaka Records
Anytime a record collectorĀ turns into a record releaser, my ears perk up and my heart starts beating a little faster. Ā Record collectors perceiveĀ the ins and outsĀ of our vastĀ universe in ways that other common folk doĀ not, so the content they curate for our consumption is bound to be pristine. Ā You know it, I know it. Ā 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. Ā 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. Ā File it next to your Wilco rekkids for all I care. Ā Me, I’m more of an alphabetical kind of filer, but to each their own.
