“We continue to be awed by the quality and invention in all Nordic music and Finland has shown itself to be at the centre of a creative explosion in forward thinking sounds. We’re proud to be hooking up once again with Music Finland to support a release we believe represents the very best in new Finnish talent and spreading our love for it on the most important day in our musical calendar”, says Paul Bridgewater, Editor at The Line of Best Fit.
5000 copies of the official Record Store Day release will be given out for free to customers at all participating stores across the US, Germany and the UK and Ireland. A select amount will also be circulated in France and Japan.
The 10″ vinyl includes singles from Jaakko Eino Kalevi, who became the first-ever Nordic artist on Domino’s roster, Mirel Wagner, who signed a recording deal with Sub Pop this year and Beastmilk, who garnered strong support recently from NME on their new album ‘Climax’. The vinyl compilation also includes Satellite Stories, as featured by XFM as their ‘Artist of the Week’ and charting at #1 on Hype Machine, as well as indie-guitar ensembles NEØV and The New Tigers.
“After last year’s Record Store Day, we received a lot of enquiries from record stores and media around the world about the release and its availability. By expanding the distribution, we hope to reach even wider audiences”, Music Finland’s UK Project Manager Riku Salomaa explains.
