6.6.12 – Yet Another Archie Powell & The Exports video!
Do these guys ever sleep? Archie Powell & The Exports, just made another great video. Unfortunately, Good Land Records runs on a shoestring budget and we could only afford to have them film it on an old VHS camcorder. But hey, there’s “Only So Much You Can Do!” Check it out for yourself:
3.7.13 – Good Land Distro presents Being Nice Won’t Save Milwaukee by Quinn Scharber & The …
The second release in the Good Land Distro series – where we bring the people some of our favorite records by artists from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and beyond is Being Nice Won’t Save Milwaukee by Quinn Scharber & The … from, well, Milwaukee.
Quinn is known around town as the lead guitarist in Hugh Bob & The Hustle and The Championship, but we think he’s at his best when he’s in the driver’s seat. You heard his song “Something Better” on the Good Land compilation, now hear the rest of the album and enjoy. Here’s a sampling:
2.20.13 – Introducing Good Land Distro
We’re excited to announce Good Land Distro to our online store, where we get a few records by our favorite bands from Wisconsin and beyond and try and turn them on to new fans.
First in the series is the fantastic Tongues Of Fire LP by our friend Joseph Huber. Best known for his work with the gone-too-soon .357 String Band, Joe busted out on his own and recorded and released this hook-filled & bluegrass-fueled gem last year. It’s in Good Land Records’ own Jonny Phillip’s top-five list of 2012, and as our drummer-in-residence, Jonny can be seen backing up Mr. Huber on occasion.
