welcome to the family!

We are proud to announce some newcomers to the Brown Interiour Music roster. Our newest addition is none other than R. Stevie Moore, the godfather of lo-fi himself. He has been making terriffic recordings since the 1960s and we are excited to collaborate with him. As an introduction he is on our summer 2007 compilation tape with a classic original called "Colliding Circles." Without him, we wouldn't have Ariel Pink, Guided By Voices, Jad Fair or even David Bowie. Check out his website, send him some cash, and watch his videos on youtube. Keep an eye out for future releases from Stevie!

You might have heard that Karl Blau from Anacortes, WA has become involved with us. Not only did he donate a bunch of tape decks to us to help speed our process, but he also has recorded a very special album for us to release at historic Dub Narcotic Studio. The album features the poetry of the late poet Robert Sund, with spontaneous accompaniment from Adam Oelsner (L.A.K.E./Kickball), Andrew Dorsett (L.A.K.E./Live Active Cultures/-a) and myself. It's in the can and in the editing process, and it will be available shortly.

Also new to the family is Joseba Irazoki from the Basque Country. He is a sort of avant-garde
blues guitarist with the occasional subtle electronic twist to his organic minimalist music. This is some serious PHD shit if you know what I mean. He has a couple albums released under the moniker "Do" on Spain's Lucky Kitchen label, and his newest release is a cassette on brown interiour called "dosi."

- Blues improbisatulues bezala defini dezakegu "Dosi" izeneko Irazokiren lan berria. Kanta baten batean, gitarra elektriko zikin samarrek hillbilly kutsua hartzen dute . Cassette formatu berezian argitaratzen du " Brown Interiour music" zigilu estatubatuarrak .

- Podemos definir el nuevo trabajo de Irazoki como Blues improvisado; guitarras el├ęctricas distorsionadas que llegan a coger un tono hillbilly. Lo publica en cassette el sello estadounidense "Brown interiour music".

- We can define the new work of Irazoki as improvised blues, we will find dirty electric guitars that sometimes sounds like hillbilly stuff. Released on cassette by the american label "Brown interiour music"

This event is being curated by Boy Gorilla Records, and is happening in Portland. Don't miss it! Brown Interiour will have a distro set up, and we are being represented by the Free Range Stallions (with members of Simurgh), Ashley Eriksson & Eli Moore of LAKE will be playing with the Portland combo Swimming.

LAKE Survives Near-Miss

Whilst on tour with the revered Laura Viers, our friends in LAKE were run off the road by an eighteen-wheeler truck-drivin' man in rural Illinois. Andrew was the driver. "He just didn't see us," he recalls. "Do you want any sake?" In order to avoid being crushed by this big rig, our hero used his thinking cap and pulled into the "lush, grassy median." Thankfully, no one was hurt. The driver of the truck was unavailable for comment.

New Skrill Meadow EP

There is a new Still Meadow EP entitled "City By The Lake." Pop these jams in your hungry worn-out car cassette deck while the summer's still hot! Only a few are left.
