Double Release Day for Fort Lowell Records

Posted By on Tue, Oct 28, 2014 at 1:30 PM

Born out of a love of vinyl, Fort Lowell Records began releasing 7-inch singles by Tucson bands five years ago. Label boss James Tritten and his wife Tracy Shedd left Tucson after seven years last fall, but didn't leave our music scene behind, with two 12-inch records from Tucson's La Cerca and Naïm Amor part of Fort Lowell's 2015.

In between those releases come two more, both officially out today.

Tucson fans of the Fort Lowell roster - Young Mothers, ...music video?, Tracy Shedd, Dead Western Plains, Howe Gelb, Andrew Collberg, Saint Maybe, Fairweather Friend and the Luz de Vida compilation - will find plenty to like in Tritten's choices of the Good Graces and moyamoya.

The Good Graces' "Close to the Sun" is Fort Lowell's 12th release, an indie-pop record for fans of Liz Phair, Juliana Hatfield and Rilo Kiley. The Atlanta-based band recorded in Chapel Hill, N.C., near the new Fort Lowell HQ of Raleigh.

From Jacksonville, Florida comes moyamoya, a complex instrumental band like Explosions in the Sky or Mogwai.

Both 12-inch vinyl records are available for sale from the Fort Lowell homepage or Bandcamp.

And stay tuned Nov. 25 for Fort Lowell's 14th release, Naïm Amor's "Hear The Walls."
