My Morning Jacket‘s Yim Yames (aka Jim James) is collaborating with his cousin, Johnny Quaid, to launch Removador Records and Solutions. Intended to be “an online platform to shine a light on some of the musicians that Yames/James admire and would like to share with world,” the label hopes to connect the dots within the artistic community Yames is a part of.
The following are the first few projects for the label:
Cortney Tidwell – Boys
Cortney Tidwell blends her boundless imagination and voice to create Boys. Her second full-length record, Boys leaps triumphantly from style to style, with her voice being the silken thread that holds the album together.
Boys was released on January 19th
The Ravenna Colt – Slight Spell
The Ravenna Colt’s Slight Spell is a debut album bursting with an impassioned and dreamlike sentiment. The band, which is helmed by former My Morning Jacket guitarist Johnny Quaid, combines its myriad influences into a dark, spacious plane, highlighting its cosmic yet truly American style.
Slight Spell will drop February 16th.
Follow The Train – Mercury
Mercury is a nine-song psychedelic journey into musical space. A potent and volatile mixture that pays tribute to the shoe-gazers of the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, Mercury proves itself to be a compelling attraction to the ears.
Mercury will drop March 16th.
Here is an official statement from the company:
