Celebrating 10 years of Salinas Records, with*:
The Measure [sa]
The State Lottery
(+ more ?)
In 2003, Marco Reosti put out a 7” for his own band, Mumbler, under the label “Salinas,” named for the hometown of his favorite author. For most of the next decade, Salinas Records was housed in a basement storage unit rented for $25 a month on Detroit’s 2nd Avenue. In 10 years, Marco has put out almost 50 records, many of which contribute to the modern pop punk canon. Neither hyper-punk, nor particularly slick pop, Salinas is a reliable middle ground of earnest, gritty expression with faithfully melodic underpinnings.-bc
*bands are playing abbreviated sets!
I was told not to be excited for the Measure set but how can I not be? even if it’s only one song or whatever.
