SideCho Records
First off, this will be the last SideCho Records Newsletter of 2006. After this week the office is closed for a much-needed holiday break. Don't worry, a couple of us will still be coming in to answer emails and send out mail orders, so don't hesitate to contact us regarding anything! Now moving on to some exciting news...

The Official SideCho Records T-Shirts and Zip-Up Hoodies Are Here!!

A lot of you have been asking about these along with our industry friends, and I'm glad to announce that we finally have some official SideCho Records apparel in stock. The first is a navy blue T-shirt with the SideCho Records logo on the front, and it's also on the lower back corner along with "SIDECHO.COM". The second is a navy blue zip-up hoodie with the same design: logo on the front and logo + "SIDECHO.COM" on the lower back corner. Both are printed on American Apparel clothing, so they're high-quality and extremely comfortable.

So head on over to the SideCho Webstore for pictures of the T-shirt and hoodies, and while you're there, go ahead and order yours before we run out (and we just might!) We have them in every size and currently have both items ON SALE in addition to the rest of the holiday sales we're having.

SideCho Records Announces... [Oct. 11th, 2006|01:20 am]
SideCho Records Announces Three New Signed Bands: Ghosts & Liars, The Only Children, and Peachcake

SideCho Records is proud to announce their recent signings of Ghosts & Liars, The Only Children, and Peachcake. These are the latest additions to the record label's growing roster, which already includes bands such as 1090 Club, The Spores, Tokyo Rose, and Blinded Black (another recent signing).

Ghosts & Liars features Chris Du Bray and Rachel Bowman, both of who are already familiar with the label. SideCho Records was home to Chris and Rachel's former band, Some By Sea, and the new music will be a pleasant surprise for fans of the now-defunct band. Ghosts & Liars will be playing this year's SideCho Records CMJ Showcase that is to take place at Arlene's Grocery (95 Stanton St., NYC) on November 1. The debut album will follow in Spring 2007.

The Only Children boasts an already-impressive line-up including Josh Berwanger, formerly of The Anniversary, and drum appearances by both Christian Jankowski (also from The Anniversary) and Ryan Pope (formerly of The Get Up Kids). The band is currently in the studio at Black Lodge in KC and will be releasing an album in Spring 2007.

Last is Peachcake from Carefree/Cave Creek, AZ. Made up of Stefan Pruett on vocals and John O’Keefe on keyboards, guitar and—the combination of both— keytar, Peachcake has already been gaining international buzz by winning the “Best USA” category from the 2006 Toronto Independent Music Awards. Out now on Jim Adkins’ (Jimmy Eat World) Western Tread Records is a CD/EP split with another Arizona-based band Less Pain Forever, titled Now We Have Something To Celebrate. You can currently see Peachcake live on tour with Hellogoodbye, but you’ll have to wait until next Spring for the new album.

Check out these news! [Sep. 2nd, 2006|02:39 pm]
8/10 for Shipwrecked!

A review of 1090's debut album from: www.forthesound.com

Band: 1090 Club
Album: Shipwrecked on Shores
Label: Sidecho Records
Overall Score: 8/10

Right off the bat, 1090 Club will show you that they are going to throw you an album that is largely rock based, but it is not solely a rock album. It is a rock indie experiment of sorts and all around a handful of songs that flow effortlessly and really test what basic rock has to offer.
When I read in the bio that this band had a violinist, I was wondering how they were going to incorporate such a stiff instrument. Look what happened with Yellowcard¦ cheese! But wow! The violin soars alongside the piano build ups and really adds to the thick melodies that loop through each song. The drums run the show for the most part and nicely lead raunchy guitars, harmonized vocals, and uplifting choruses.

Female vocalist, Megan Dibble, really pairs up elegantly beside the male vocals. Each tune is unique and has juicy hooks waiting for you to sing along to. "Second Hander" will give you a taste of what a bold catchy rock song done right feels like: really gripping! Huge chant choruses in "It Starts With" are motivating for any musician to want to pick up their instrument of choice and jam along.

The vocal elements bring about comparison to Rainer Maria, but the backing music is just so much more aggressive." Sunk," a husky piano ballad that later picks up drastically, uses group vocals to stay along the theme of shipwrecks¦ it says, like a lighthouse you shine They use some layered instrumental verses much like Canada’s Broken Social Scene, to electrify the almost-not-there vocals on "Some" and further more show their versatility on "Little Known Fact," a shimmery sway evoking song.

If you know me, you will know that first and foremost I love music. Secondly, I love music that brings something new to the table. Though I respect all shapes of music with a passion it just really excites me to see artists doing something new and different than their peers. I always turned to my fellow Canadian's for a brand of mind-blowing indie but I am happy to see some cats south of the border cranking out tunes this original. It makes me wonder what I have been missing while at the same time; wish I had the talents to make a piece of art this beautiful.

So, where can you pick up this album? Click the banner below to pre-order it right now!
