Listen to Tracy Shedd's remix of L.A. Dies "Tend To Do" now!

On Friday, November 29th, our dear friends at the Harding Street Assembly Lab record label will be dropping the new L.A. Dies maxi-single! “Tend To Do” is the second official cut to be featured from the four-piece’s spectacular LP, Drifting Still. Harding Street Assembly Lab fans can hear the entire release here prior to the 29th!

At L.A. Dies album’s release back in September, Harding Street Assembly Lab reached out to their friends & family about the possibility of reworking one of the tunes. Multiple responses were that the track would have to be “Tend To Do”. For this maxi-single, which clocks in at roughly 18 minutes, the single proper is paired with remixes from Fort Lowell Records' own Tracy Shedd (ex-Band & The Beat), Benjamin Mauch (Colin Phils) & Opin (who are currently mixing down their new LP for Harding Street Assembly Lab).

The single comes across like a long-lost remnant from the last Cocteau Twins album. Slithering bass lines that work around programmed rhythms with a vocal delivery that earns allure as it escapes translation. Each of the remixes lean into the ethereal space trapped within the original. Tracy Shedd & Opin both find themselves working with processed percussive elements to augment the tune. Ben Mauch’s redux is floats away from the base, landing at an authentic recreation.


Tracy Shedd's third album, originally released in 2004, is finally available again!

Louder Than You Can Hear, Tracy Shedd's 2004 full-length studio album was originally made available by Devil In The Woods, on the heals of Shedd's debut and sophomore records - Blue and Red [Teen-Beat], and was distributed through digital music streaming / download platforms... until now!  Fort Lowell Records presents to you: Tracy Shedd Louder Than You Can Hear.  Download or stream it now on Apple MusicBandcamp, Google PlaySpotify, etc.!

Tracy Shedd has a new single out today - Friday, November 8th

Inspired by the Roland TR-808 Drum Machine and old-school hip-hop beats, Tracy Shedd's latest single - "The Rest Will Follow (The Freestyle Version)" - is a NEW version of the song "The Rest Will Follow" that appears on her latest album The Carolinas.   This is the exact version of the song that Shedd performed at her Record Release Party for The Carolinas, which was held at Bourgie Nights in Wilmington, North Carolina with friends De La Noche.  The Digital 45 Single is backed by the virtual b-side track - "Wake Up" - which is an outtake from The Carolinas recording sessions.  Both new songs are now available on all digital music streaming / download platforms, such as Amazon Music, iTunes, Spotify, etc.
