RED BULL SOUND SELECT & RECORD STORE DAY ANNOUNCE ARTS & CRAFTS CURATED 12” FOR BLACK FRIDAY

NOV 25TH COMPILATION FEATURES CHARLOTTE DAY WILSON, RIVER TIBER, DARCYS, LOWELL, FRIGS, & TENNYSON



This Black Friday, Record Store Day and Red Bull Sound Select will release a limited edition collaborative 12” vinyl curated by Canada’s trailblazing indie label, Arts & Crafts.

Says Record Store Day co-founder/organizer, Michael Kurtz, “Record Store Day is looking for ways to help developing artists find their audience and Red Bull Sound Select is making this possible.”

The release celebrates rising Red Bull Sound Select artists like Charlotte Day Wilson, Tennyson, River Tiber, Lowell, Frigs and Darcys with a first time vinyl release of their tracks, with quality gatefold artwork.

Kurtz continues, “It’s important that music fans have an entry point to discover new artists on the format of their choosing. Because of its high sound quality many artists choose vinyl so it’s more important than ever that Record Store Day works to find ways to offer vinyl at low prices. Red Bull Sound Select is helping us to do that.”

Red Bull Sound Select is an accelerator for music artists. The program supports artists by collaborating on ambitious projects and ideas using the strength of Red Bull’s global network together with a collective of artists, creatives and events to accelerate their growth. The network consists of 18 city residencies, 200+ events each year, 250+ artists, 50 partners and a growing list of festivals like, 30 Days and 3 Days in Miami.

Arts & Crafts was founded by the seminal indie-rock outfit Broken Social Scene in 2003. It is an independent record label, management firm, merchandiser, and publisher worldwide that has earned 21 JUNO Awards. Arts & Crafts has been called one of Canada's most important record labels. Their artist roster includes Feist, the aforementioned Broken Social Scene, BadBadNot-Good, Stars, and Chilly Gonzales, among others.
