cults + forest family records

[forest family records logo by will bryant]

We are beyond psyched to announce that we've teamed up with our good friends at Weekly Tape Deck to start a new record label called Forest Family. We've got some big things planned for the label's very near future, and we couldn't be more excited about our debut release, which is also the first-ever release from mysterious duo Cults, featuring the much-loved, sunny 60's-pop-inspired instant summer anthem "Go Outside," backed with the equally infectious "Most Wanted" on the b-side. The 7" single, which is limited to 400 copies pressed on bright yellow vinyl, is officially out on April 20, but you can pre-order it here now.

cults :: go outside
cults :: most wanted

That's great but would be even greater if there was a song or two not widely available.

Awesome news. Who did you do the press through?

You guys better not pussyfoot about this like every other blog-gone-record label.

Press some damn LPs!

You guys have great taste so its really not that risky.

And I agree with Scott, if you're gonna bother with the 7" at least give it an exclusive B-side.

Hey guys, congratulations. This is great news! Seems like a long overdue venture and I'll definitely be watching the releases. Always good to keep the vinyl flowing from trusted sources.

I'm pretty psyched out about gvb starting a label, but why is this 7" so expensive? 11ppd for a single doesnt sound good.

I'm hoping that iamamiwhoami turns out to be an artist on their label. Ha.

But regardless, this news is crazy exciting. For reals.

Congrats on getting people to spend $11 on a 7". Awesome show, great job!

$11 is not a lot, get over it. Paypal fees, shipping, packing and production are expensive.

Why does postage cost me $24 to ship to 7" singles to the UK from you guys?! That's insane...

8:41 PM  
Blogger Chris said...

hey Alexx, sorry that's a mistake. we're working on fixing that, not sure why paypal is overcharging for shipping.

if anyone already paid too much for shipping, we're working on refunding the extra shipping costs. it looks like it's only happening when you order multiple 7"s.

Frank T.,

I run a label. Color vinyl. Color art. Tons of inserts, including CDRs. Pressing, packaging, Paypal fees, shipping, blah, blah, blah. Plus I'd wager we have to spend more on promotion since we don't have a blog radio program and all kinds of other sweet music connections. Yeah, it's expensive...but not that expensive.

Honestly, good luck with the label. Vinyl is rad and getting people to pay for music is admirable. I just like to start every internet conversation with some form of bitching.

Also bought this, but I will agree that $11ppd is kind of ridiculous for a 7", sure it's exspensive, but it isn' that exspensive.

any idea of a rough breakdown of the colours pressed? was expecting yellow, but was surprised to find a black 7" waiting for me (it's cool -- i'm not a huge coloured vinyl fan anyways).

Blogger Chris said...
