Vinyl Records would like to present to you a new collaboration between It is rain in my Face’s Matt Jones and current Vinyl Records President as well as ArnHao member Andrew Hamlet. Stemming from a mutual respect, the two decided to work together this semester and quickly composed five pieces in less than three weeks. Watch the video below to listen to the group’s first single “Pat Pat.” It accompanies a textural slideshow by Matt Jones.

As part of the Pinhook’s monthly local label showcase, Vinyl Records will be presenting some its favorite UNC student bands. Come out and enjoy these great talents.
Los Naturales: The brainchild of DVD, Montgomery, and Dowdy, these guys will dirty up your Saturday night.
It is Rain in my Face: Stage name of UNC student visual artist Matt Jones, It is Rain in my Face was recently featured in Performer Magazine as “Trance-inducing Chillwave” and “Bubbly bass lines and lithe sine wave doodles.”
Jacquelyn Lee: Jacki will open the show with her brand of insidiously caustic singer-songwriter lyrics and subtly aggressive finger picking.

The votes have been tallied, and Vinyl Records is proud to welcome our newest recording artist:
With over 38 percent of the vote, Colby is the winner of Vinyl Record’s February Face-Off 2009. Many thanks to the 2092 UNC students that voted. More than that, thank you to Eric DiMarzio, It Is Rain In My Face, Jacquelyn Lee, and the Hugeunots for making the Face-Off itself such a great time. Future musical success for those acts would not be surprising at all.
Look back here soon for more on Colby, as well as the usual coverage of Apollo, Lafcadio, and Lake Inferior. While most news has been about the Face-Off lately, our other acts haven’t exactly been sitting back.
Again, congratulations Colby! We’re all excited to make you a part of Vinyl Records.

Reports come from Beijing, from Baltimore, and from Arizona that the voting frenzy is likely to be beyond any predicted scale. With all of this in mind, IF you are reading this, and IF you are in the Chapel Hill area–how could you not attend?
If those artists aren’t enough, then come for the DJ’s before and between sets, or come for your friends, or come so you have a free place to take your date! Beginning at 8:00 at Garrard Hall (near Memorial Hall), the face-off is not to be missed. If you’ve checked out the artists myspace, and like their songs–come hear it live! If you’ve
checked out the artists myspace, and don’t like their songs–come hear it live!
There is simply no better way to spend your friday evening, and so I look forward to seeing you there.
