Welcome Landmarks!!

  Landmarks1

Over the past few years Chicago has been breeding a new crop of incredibly talented bands and cultivating a thriving scene that is quietly catching the attention of fans far beyond the borders of Chicagoland. Today we're very excited to announce that Landmarks, another stand-out Chicago band, has agreed to join Walk-In Records for the vinyl release of their Self-Titled EP. Taking essentials from the psychedelic, shoegaze and dream-pop genres, Landmarks have created their own place in the often crowded indie-rock world. This EP will fit nicely with your Real Estate, Deerhunter, and War on Drugs LPs. There are a few moments when you may even hear a bit the Stone Roses in these songs.  Take a listen for yourself...

Right now, plans are being made to get this EP pressed to vinyl. We'll keep you posted as to when it will be available and all the other details of the vinyl package. In the meantime, stay connected with Landmarks and Walk-In to get all the details as they become available.

Sister Crystals debut LP is coming your way in May

Since Walk-In Records began we've been telling you about Sister Crystals. Sure, they were called Magic City then, but that was a long time ago. Well, for the last year Sister Crystals worked tirelessly to record a first-class LP and I'm happy to tell you it's just about finished. We recently booked Roger Seibel at SAE mastering to master the album and arrangements are being made for artwork, pressing, and all the good things that go into making an amazing record. What this all means is that Sister Crystals' debut LP will be out in May. I've heard a few rough tracks from the LP and I can tell you it's going to knock you over when you hear it. Yeah, it's that good. Stay tuned for more details...

Jordon Salveson joins Walk-In Records

It's been a busy first year for the label, but we have no intention of slowing down now. As we approach our first birthday, Walk-In Records is pleased to announce that Jordon Salveson is the latest artist to join the label. Jordon is a native of Nashville and has recently spent several years in Chicago. He brings his considerable abilities as songwriter and multi-instrumentalist to Walk-In Records and we are thrilled he agreed to release his records with us. If names like Jeff Buckley, The Tallest Man on Earth, and Sondre Lerche make you sit up and pay attention then you need to spend some time with Jordon Salveson's music. Look for a digital album from Jordon in a few weeks and an LP release late in 2013 or early 2014. In the meantime take a few minutes and check out this song, In a Story or a Dream. Also, read more about Jordon here, then check him out on Facebook and Twitter.

Welcome!

Welcome to Walk-In Records! We're just getting things started here, so there's not much to see yet. All of that will change in the coming weeks. In the meantime, I can tell you that we specialize in small run vinyl releases. We will certainly dabble in CDs, cassette, and digital releases as well, but records will always be out first love. We're hard at work on our first release and we seriously can't wait to tell you all about. Stay tuned...
