Etxe to Release New Magic Wands LP!
Silo Halo receives 5/5 Star Review from New Noise Magazine!
Etxe Records is proud to release Los Angeles based dream-pop duo Magic Wands’ third album Abrakadabra this Friday July 13th, 2018 on classic black vinyl with digital download.
Abrakadabra is a new and exciting body of work that captures dream wave duo Magic Wands signature expertise at infusing sweet, catchy pop tracks with intricate and sophisticated layers of powerful, transcendental and mystical moods and textures.
Recorded at Voltiv Studios in LA and produced by Phil Galloni and the band themselves and mastered by Tim Young (The Smiths, My Bloody Valentine), new album Abrakadabra features 10 tracks with an extra track "Puzzle Of Love" for vinyl orders.
Spring 2018 Update!
Together Christopher Goett (Blackout Transmission) and Greg Svitil (Teething Veils) have taken on the time honored tradition of moody post-punk and carved out a very unique version where noise, shoegaze, post-rock and punk are all expanded on with amazing results.
While the first half of the album is reminiscent of Unwound as a desert rock band and appears cut from a similar cloth to late period Fugazi or even Hoover, the second half is a slightly more straight forward affair with guitar fuzz and turbulent melodies that songwriters like Lou Barlow have made good use of. Really, though, there’s little use for comparison.
Etxe Records at 10 Years & Near Northeast & Hometown Sounds
We are still reeling from the tremendous outpouring of support and love from our 10-year Anniversary Showcase at the Capital Fringe Theater in Washington, DC. A heartfelt thank you to all that came out to our showcase and have been supporting our artists . . . its what keeps us going! We commemorated the occasion by issuing our first compilation CD with rare/unreleased tracks from virtually all of our artists from the first 10 years of operation.
Blade of Grass: Etxe Records' latest addition just played a scorching set at the Off Sunset Festival as part of LA Leather Pride.
The band is readying a new single "Looks So Good" for release on Friday April 20th with a release party/show in El Sereno, Los Angeles to commemorate the occasion and celebrate liked-minded community artists.
Additionally, Blade of Grass will be playing The Satellite in Silverlake, Los Angeles as part of the Wild Riot and Beat Lab Academy presentation of Spring Break Mini-Fest on April 30th featuring $10 Tattoos and live art. Other artists on the bill include Spacers, Plasmic, Electric West, and many more.

Etxe Records at 10 Years: Capital Fringe Showcase and Compilation
Video single from Silo Halo's forthcoming eponymous 3rd LP available for on clear lavender vinyl. Our Brazilian friends over at The Blog That Celebrates Itself premiered the video last week stating it features "overlapping roads and mountains, serving as a backdrop for the melancholy and dense tone of the song, which leaves aside the post-punk shoegaze of the duo with eloquent airs and sophistication, evoking Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds".
