Well, Chapel Hill band Violet Vector & the Lovely Lovelies isn't actually moving to Kentucky (as far as we know), but the slightly psych quintet has moved its label affiliation to Color Wheel Records, a Lexington imprint led by Samantha Herald and Tony Miller. VVLL represents the first non-Lexington band signed to Color Wheel, which has previously released only an LP by Ideal Free Distribution (which isn't free, by the way: $10 ppd). A regional comp and a local EP are on the books for the summer, but they'll be the CW003 and CW004 to Violet Vector's CW002: The band's second EP, EP II, is due on the label later this Spring. To hear what appears to be an early mix of one of the new tunes, scramble to TheirSpace.

EP II is a follow-up to last year's EP I, released by Carrboro's Holidays for Quince Records. Don't be bummed for the locals, though: This morning, HFQ announced its own exciting news: The Moaners—the blistering-and-brazen rock duo of Laura King and ex-Trailer Bride leader Melissa Swingle—has joined the HFQ roster after two records for Yep Roc."This summer they will begin recording a full length here in Chapel Hill for an early '10 HFQ release," HFQ's HQ said this morning.
