ARTICLES ABOUT FORT LOWELL RECORDS' 2014 RELEASES

2014 was a very busy year for our lil' ol' label.  Not only did we undergo transitioning from Tucson AZ to Raleigh NC, but we also managed releasing four full length albums: La Cerca Sunrise for Everyone, the Good Graces Close to the Sun (a split release with our friends at Potluck Foundation), moyamoya moyamoya, and Naïm Amor Hear the Walls.  We are very thankful for all of the hard work each artist put into making these fantastic albums.  But we are also thankful for all of the media attention these records received collectively; it truly does help inform people about these great musicians - which is one of our main responsibilities and reasons for doing what we do. 
Below are links to all of the articles / posts written about these four artists / releases from 2014.  We hope you enjoy catching up on some reading!

WIN SIGNED TEST PRESS VINYL FROM THE GOOD GRACES

To celebrate the release of the Good Graces' new album Close to the Sun, we are giving away a FREE signed test pressing of their vinyl record!  All of our releases are pressed by Rainbo Records in Canoga Park, California.  Before they begin manufacturing our orders, they send us four (4) copies of each release to review in advance,  just to be sure everything is a-ok for production; these copies are called test pressings, and they are the very first copies of the release (very rare).  We decided to have a little fun with the Good Graces and give one of these four test pressings away to one lucky fan!  Not only did they sign their test pressing that we are giving away, but the band also did their own rendition of their cover art!

If you want to win this one-of-a-kind copy of the Good Graces Close to the Sun test pressing, all you need to do is sign up to be a member of the Friends & Family of Fort Lowell Records in the form below.  We will be emailing our Friends & Family exclusively in the coming weeks for details on how to win this little gem!  Stay tuned!
