Our first release was actually on Record Store Day 2017, "Marcy Playground" by Marcy Playground. It was the 20th anniversary and had never been on vinyl so we had a great reissue to launch. It sold-out within' hours! Exciting. After market prices were quickly between $75.00 - $150.00 so what did we do about that? Well I had held back enough copies for the eventual store we were plotting but instead of waiting I put them on ebay... at $25.00 including shipping! We got so many comments thanking us for doing this! It was a blast to crush on the after-market business. We still have a few of those records in the store. Single digits remaining.
One of our goals at Slow Down Sounds is supporting Record Stores and the community around them... after all the culture of Record Stores continues to be one that we immerse myself in regularly. It is why we always want our releases in stores and in our on-line shop.
Over several blogs I'll get in to all the Slow Down Sounds opinions on vinyl and how we came up with the name... a basic philosophy is "stop and hear the music", in other words, unplug your device and plug in some speakers! Engage with the music! We even have that scribed in the dead wax of our brand new release, Inara George "Dearest Everybody". Shipping Now!!! Below are links that will tell ya more but this record is so good, both songs and sonics! Top notch quality all the way around.
