Posted in music by vinylstaff on December 7, 2010

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.

We Have a Winner and His Name is Colby Ramsay!

Posted in Colby Ramsay, february showcase, music, UNC by Matt on March 3, 2009

The votes have been tallied, and Vinyl Records is proud to welcome our newest recording artist:

COLBY RAMSAY!!!

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.

Live recordings from the Face-off/Voting ends at midnight tonight!

Face all compete to become a member of the Vinyl label. Who could make such a difficult decision? You. That’s right, voters from around Chapel Hill, around the state, around the country, and around the world will be sitting anxiously by their computers, casting their votes. 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?
