STL LOUD has a simple aim: to celebrate and champion the city's best bands. The blog aims to achieve this by giving bands the ability to record a song for free -- which will then be distributed (for free!) online and in record stores as part of a compilation EP. Ryan Albritton's the man behind the music. His website, R&R Music Labs, has more info:
Welcome to the STL LOUD EP Project. More of any good thing is always better, so instead of one CD, let's do a series of EPs as an ongoing tribute to St. Louis and all of the great music held herein. We will be recording a couple bands every month for this project, which should keep us on track for one release every three months. Yes- new, original, previously-unreleased, local music every 3 months!! Excited? ...Not good enough? Ok- how about this, each release will be accompanied by a showcase at some unnamed local venue featuring the five or six artists on the EP. So now, in addition to the new, original, previously-unreleased, local music every three months, we also get to go to a show, or more precisely, many shows! This is starting to sound like a real celebration!
Stay tuned here - and elsewhere -- in the coming weeks for more info...
