Music Brief: Loamlands Leaps to Vinyl

Three years after releasing the 2013 EP Some Kind of Light, Loamlands at last issued Sweet High Rise, its debut full-length record last fall. Led by Pinhook owner Kym Register, the band delivered a strong ten-song collection of warm, encouraging folk-rock tunes; they reckon that, though life can be rough, you can get through it and find the good stuff—you've just "got to keep on walkin'," as Register sings on opener "Another Reason."

This week, the record is finally getting a vinyl version through Register's long time pal Chaz Martenstein, who runs Durham's Bull City Records. Martenstein has dubbed his imprint Hillsborough Rd. Records, after the street his shop currently sits on, and though he's helped friends put out music in years past, this is the first full-length LP he's issued on vinyl.

The copies of Sweet High Rise hit shelves on Friday, June 23. You can pick up a copy at Loamlands' Duke Gardens show on Wednesday, or swing by Bull City Records—which INDY readers voted the best record store in the Triangle this year—and snag one from Martenstein himself.
