Blame it on cabin fever, but this winter I've gotten it into my head that I would start a record label. Myself, along with Geoff Chown and Vanessa Longul, have basically been running a label for a decade. We just didn't put a name to it.
Now that my music has branched off into different directions with The Aldous Huxters coming into the mix, it seemed like a good time to make this move. The label is called Rabid Ear Music, and we are hoping to have 3 or 4 releases this year. The first of which will be "Tom Savage - Living Room Session".
"Living Room Session" signifies the different way in which this label will operate. We'll have a combination of digital-only releases, physical releases, lo-fi, and live recordings. Some of which will be available for free download.
"Living Room Session" falls into the lo-fi category. The songs were recorded in my living room, with just vocal and guitar, into one microphone. Initially just meant to be demos, I liked the way the songs worked with such a rudimentary recording style. I think they are worth putting out there.
I'll let you decide on February 1st. The EP will be available for free download to the first 200 people on bandcamp, so check it out, and leave a comment on the blog or facebook page, to let me know what you think.
