Saddle Creek is proud to announce Posse's Kismet as the inaugural release in their Document series!
Taking inspiration from the original concept behind the founding of the label's attempt to document our home city of Omaha through music and art, each release featured in the Document series will comprise of an exclusive 7-inch record featuring unreleased music from various artists outside of the label’s roster and a specially curated zine highlighting the artist’s hometown / music scene.
“Saddle Creek started up as a way to spotlight and document what was happening in the music and art community of Omaha, NE. We know there are a lot of great music scenes all around the world that don’t have the spotlight they deserve, so with that in mind we thought creating this series would be a cool and unique way to reference our past while at the same time reaching out to bands that we aren’t currently working with and allowing them to shine a light on the art and music of their own communities. It’s our way to try to capture a band and a city in a specific place at a specific time.” - Saddle Creek
At their fun live shows, this upstate NY pop-punk duo is extremely energetic and super enthusiastic - lots of jumping and kicking by singer/guitarist Alex Luciano - she must have a spring for a spine. But more importantly, the songs are catchy. They also released a 7" in 2015 and a full-length coming out in 2017, Live video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=za979jCnlE4 Art Fin
I've spent weeks trying to find the words to describe how much I love this record. It's extraordinary. The only other rock album that moves me to the same extent is Car Seat Headrest's "Twin Fantasy." Camp Cope is essential listening. bondconor
