Passionistas Sign to N&UR

After much courting, hustlin, and form-filling, it is all official - New and Used Records is a label and the Passionistas are our first signees. After another Noise Pop Happy Hour at Thee Parkside (featuring the Dodos and Loquat) the band and I grabbed some Indian food in the Haight to go over the final details. Though an idea that was always in the back of my mind, launching a record label was certainly not something I was anticipating us doing so early on. Our project with the Passionistas simply continued to grow from the initial video shoots, and now it seems like the perfect next step for this little collective we call N&UR. We'll be putting out their Kelley Stoltz-produced God's Boat in the coming months ... so please stay tuned for more updates.
