$5 CD Sale / Sean Rowe signs to ANTI-

Posted on December 09, 2010 by Collar City Records

That’s right, starting now – all CDs in the Collar City Records store are $5, until December 31, 2010. Shipping costs have been reduced as well. Have at it! Some very limited items in the shop, including the last copies of Swamp Baby’s All Fours, a few found copies of Matthew Carefully’s Penny Riddle and a limited run of his St. Joseph’s Oblivion CD which was only available in physical form at Restoration Fest this past August.

Music makes a great gift, and we feel there is something in our catalog for everyone. Please visit the recently updated “FREE” section of our website to sample many of the recordings for sale.

Sean Rowe Signs to ANTI- Records!

The news has been out for a few weeks now, but if you haven’t heard yet, our pal Sean Rowe recently signed a record deal with ANTI- Records (Neko Case, Tom Waits, Antibalas Orchestra, Mavis Staples, etc). This is a huge turn of events for all parties involved since the label was absolutely blown away by the album that we helped Sean create and release last year, Magic.

ANTI- is re-releasing Magic to the world on February 22, 2011! as well as releasing his next album. Sean will be touring the world and bringing his music to places yet untouched by his words. This is absolutely the best-case scenario for one of our associated recordings and we hope to continue to deliver world-class albums as the years continue to fly by.

Here are Sean’s upcoming tour dates for those on the West Coast!. More East Coast shows will be announced soon…
