Founded by visionary QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE and THEM CROOKED VULTURES frontman JOSHUA HOMME, REKORDS REKORDS has formed a partnership with DANGERBIRD RECORDS.
HOMME describes the label's ethos best. "It's about the creation and releasing of music, period. I wanted to put out releases without being asked any questions. That's why REKORDS REKORDS started. More than ever, now is a great time to make music for the sake of making music. Single, shmingle, just make a f***ing piece of art."
The first piece of art releasing on the label this year is ALAIN JOHANNES' solo debut "Spark." ELEVEN co-founder and QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE cohort JOHANNES pays tribute to his late wife and creative partner NATASHA SHNEIDER with an honest and heartfelt collection of songs. Dropping AUGUST 31st, this is the label's flagship release via DANGERBIRD.
HOMME continues, "I have a true partner in DANGERBIRD for the U.S. The reason I went there in the first place was because they're about getting things done --'nuff said. There's no reason to wait or belabor the point about releasing records. This is the time to focus on the consistency of your art. REKORDS REKORDS is really more of a stamp in the hopes to try to be like WOLFMAN JACK. People listened to WOLFMAN JACK because they liked his taste but he was playing all different kinds of music. I hope to develop a similar trust with fans of the music. If people like one of our releases, they'll like the next one sight unseen."
