Misra Records Rises Again

Misra Records Rises Again


Sleeping States - London Fields
Theodore - I Won't Be a Stranger


The fiercely independent record label that blessed the world with artists such as Destroyer, Great Lake Swimmers, and Shearwater apparently decided their New Year’s resolution should be to awaken from their 2010 slumber and start the year off right with a label relaunch:

To highlight Misra’s new position as an artist-run entity, 2011’s first release will be Southeast Engine’s Canary – due out March 29. The Black Swans – the label’s newest signing – will follow shortly with their album Don’t Blame the Stars. In the early part of this year, U.K.’s Sleeping States will release In the Gardens of the North + Old vs. New + bonus material.

In conjunction with this announcement, Misra Records have posted an artist-curated compilation that can be downloaded free of charge on their website. Two standout tracks from the equally outstanding mix can be previewed above. “I Won’t Be a Stranger” by Theodore and “London Fields” by Sleeping States were chosen by Adam Remnant of Southeast Engine and Kevin Hendrick of Male Bonding, respectively. Misra Legacy Compilation Volume II is set for release later this year and will include artist-curated tracks from Shearwater, Evangelicals, and South San Gabriel, among others.
