Things you need to know....

There are quite a few things percolating around here and I wanted to share an update before things get really crazy. First of all, at the end of January, Jordon Salveson released an amazing six-song EP called Devil, Don't Wake Me Up. The fine folks at Space Giraffe had this to say about it, "... Devil, Don’t Wake Me Up is the perfect musical companion for late nights in your own company. Six haunting and well composed songs that manage to hit the sweet-spot of being interesting and diverse listening, but simple in their nature and performance."

You can read the entire review here. Jordon plans to release a second EP this spring. Here's some video from one of Jordon's recent Nashville shows. Enjoy...

Get your turntables warmed up because we getting ready to release Sister Crystals' debut LP in May. The album was recently mastered by Roger Seibel at SAE Mastering. Roger has mastered records for the likes of Avail, Death Cab for Cutie, Elliott Smith, Unwound, Calexico, Bon Iver, Bardo Pond... you get the idea. Needless to say, he did an excellent job and the record sounds phenomenal. Be on the look out for the first single, coming your way very soon.

Finally, in less jubilant news, Spaces called it quits in January, ending their four-year run on a high note. I count myself very lucky to have had the opportunity to release their second LP, Nothing Exists but Atoms and the Void. It's been a true pleasure to work with them and I wish them the best in whatever they may do next. If you haven't picked up their LP, don't delay. There are less than 30 copies left. This was limited to 250 copies. It's pressed on beautiful red vinyl, the cover art is loved by millions and it comes with a beautiful screened poster. Hurry over to our shop and pick this up.

2012 Year End Update

As the door on 2012 prepares to slam shut, we wanted to bring you news from around the Walk-In Records universe. It has been a  great year for us. Spaces released Nothing Exists but Atoms and the Void on LP and it is nearly sold out. Needless to say we and the band are both thrilled and humbled by the response to this record. If you haven't heard Spaces yet, take a minute and do that right now. There are still a few copies of the album left which can be ordered here. At the moment, the guys in Spaces are taking some time to themselves, basking in the glow of their record's success. Well done gentlemen.

In September we announced that Jordon Salveson joined Walk-In. Since then, Jordon moved from Chicago to Nashville and has put together a band to play his songs live. The results are sounding pretty good. Check out this footage from a recent show at Exit/In in Nashville.

Jordon is also working on putting together a digital album we hope to release in the next few months as well as starting to record a new album that will be an LP release a bit later this year.

Finally, we come to Sister Crystals, the band that started it all. Sister Crystals had a busy 2012 playing shows in and around the greater Chicagoland area and recording their debut LP. The band put a lot of time and hard work into this album and it shows. I heard a rough track from the record recently and I can tell you it's going to knock you down when you hear it. It's not yet ready for the public, but soon, very soon. The Sister Crystals LP will be out in 2013, so get excited.While you wait, why not check out their EP from last year. These five songs are an excellent introduction to the band and the EP is a free download! What's not to love. Go get these songs now!

We're extremely excited about all that 2013 will bring and we're very proud of what we've accomplished in 2012. None of it is possible without the bands on the label and those of you who count yourselves among their fans. Thanks to everyone for buying our records, visiting this site, following us on social media, sending us email, talking to us about the label, talking to the bands about their music, telling your friends about our records, playing Walk-In Records on the radio, writing about us on your blog, magazine or newspaper. Whatever you did to support us this year please know we are eternally thankful. Thanks so much for an amazing 2012 and we can't wait to show you what we've got in store for 2013.

Please welcome Spaces to Walk-In Records

We are very excited to announce that Spaces have agreed to release their album Nothing Exists but Atoms and the Void on Walk-In Records. Hailing from Brooklyn, Spaces weave an intricate blend of instrumental post-rock, with a healthy dose of late 70's prog-rock. Trust me, this is an album that was made to be heard on vinyl. It's records like this one that will make you thankful you spent all that money on a good turntable and nice headphones. We're busy taking care of the last-minute details but we plan to have this pressed and in your hands early this summer. In the meantime you can learn more about Spaces here.

Nothing Exists but Atoms and the Void was released digitally last year; the vinyl pressing on Walk-In Records will be its first physical release We're planning a lot of great extras for this record that you will really need to see to appreciate. More details to come... While you wait for the vinyl, you can get yourself the digital version here.
