In other related news, you might have heard that the folks behind the Seaport Music Festival recently established Seaport Music Records. Their first release, which came out in December of 2009, was This Christmas by The Elves Of Heaven featuring Martin Clancy. Their second release, a 7″ by Brooklyn’s Loose Limbs just came out on limited edition vinyl last week.
The Brooklyn-based band Loose Limbs releases its debut recording Red Hands, on Seaport Music Records, a venture launched this past December by the team behind Seaport Music Festival (SMF), the acclaimed independent music-oriented series staged each summer on Pier 17 in lower Manhattan.
The record marks the first of four releases by various artists — three vinyl and one digital — scheduled to be issued by the label in the next two months.
Available at Insound.com, the new limited-edition 7-inch vinyl release (250 pressed) features three tracks. The double A-side includes “Red Hands” and “Underdog,” both recorded and co-produced at The Wild Arctic studio (Long Island City) with engineer/ producer Dean Baltulonis (presently producing The Hold Steady’s latest record).
The flip side features a remix of “Red Hands” by Dublin-based musician and producer Martin Clancy, the current Seaport Music Records Artist in Residence, who is commissioned to “create, collaborate, and produce” a series of releases for the label in 2010-11. [Eat Sleep Breathe Music]
