Van Conner of Screaming Trees and VALIS Launches New Record Label

Van Conner of Screaming Trees and VALIS today announced the launch of a new record label titled Strange Earth Records

 
PRLog - Sep. 26, 2011 - Stanwood, WA – September 26, 2011 - Van Conner today announced the launch of a new record label titled Strange Earth Records. Strange Earth has partnered with the American wing of Germany’s Finetunes Digital Media Services.

Van’s new venture seeks to fill a gap in the Northwest Music Scene (although he reserves the right to release non-Northwest acts as well) with the new label serving as a hub for independent bands that have dedicated their lives to making great music.

The website (www.strangeearthrecords.com) will serve as a “one stop shop” for web surfers who want to find out who is lurking in the backwoods of the Pacific Northwest.
The label will feature singles, EPs and full length records and videos that can be purchased through all the major online music shops (iTunes, Amazon, eMusic, etc.).
Plans for vinyl releases and distribution are also in the works.

New music as well as tunes from Van’s vast archives of tunes that he and his friends have recorded over the years that never saw the light of day or have never been released online will be featured.

The label’s first release will be by Microdot Gnome. Microdot Gnome is the latest project by Gary Lee Conner, best known as a fellow Screaming Trees co-founder/guitar player/songwriter as well as Van’s brother.

Upcoming scheduled releases include music from:
 The Legend of Bigfoot – “The Legend of Bigfoot” EP
 VALIS – “Minds Through Space and Time” LP
 Y.B.s – “Altered Steaks” LP
 Vaporland – Online Single
 Argonaut – Online Single
 Solomon Grundy – “Stone Soup and Other Stories” LP Re-Release with Spirit of the Radio Single
 Screaming Trees – “Bitter Dregs” (Unreleased Tracks)
