It's close to winter this MMXVII and I am here in Montréal, Canada. Exactly one year and five months ago, I started my very own record label - Second Best - with the intention of building a neat little community of artists whom I adore and want to help suceed.
The label has a diverse roster - some artists make indie rock, folk, nu-cello, or psych. Other projects make pop, shoegaze, adult disco, or post-rock. Overall, everyone has a boundary pushing and experimental mindset.
To try to make this interesting I have hidden (not really, but kinda) a LINK to a Google Drive sheet on the labels website - it contains 30 download codes for each of our releases :) Click the lightning bolt on the website's footer for access!
I will update the sheet in the next few days/weeks by striking through what has been used - hope everyone enjoys.
I still can't believe what the label has accomplished in this short period of time. I never thought when starting this project I would be working with the big Montréal heavyweights who directly inspired me (GSYBE, Braids, AF, PW, to casually name a few).
With that in mind, Montréal's music community is small. It is special. I invite anyone to shoot me a message should they find themselves in the city and want to come out to a show, my treat.
Love & ecstatic peace.
* Special thank you's to both Eva & Thurston for inspiration writing this one.
