Pierre de Reeder Launches New Label

 

 

Little Record Company to feature Heidecker & Wood, Nik Freitas, Mike Bloom and
Miracle Parade.

 

 

When Rilo Kiley guitarist Pierre de Reeder became a recording studio owner, he dreamed
of a Sun Studios concept, where he could record and release albums for his
talented friends under one roof. After letting the idea percolate, he
reactivated his dormant label (he released his solo album in 2008) and decided
to get serious. “It seemed like the best way to go…not only in the practical
sense, but also in the nurturing kind of family atmosphere that’s present when
you are involved in every aspect.”  Some might find the constant gloomy
broadcasts for the music industry discouraging, but de Reeder is undeterred.
“I’m not really paying attention to the state of the market in any traditional
sense…at least not as a deterrent to putting out records.  I believe in
the music and that the most important thing is making it available for people.”

 

Little Record Company
enters the fray with four new releases between now and July: the songwriter duo Heidecker & Wood, Nik Freitas,
Mike Bloom and Miracle Parade.

 

Los Angeles-based Mike Bloom is a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who is 
co-founder of The Elected with Blake Sennett of Rilo Kiley and a member of
Julian Casablancas’ band. After years of contributing to critically acclaimed
recordings by Rilo Kiley, Jenny Lewis and others, his debut solo album King of
Circles
will be released
June 7th. The warm, bedroom intimacy draws listeners in – there is a wealth of
instrumentation and sonic detail augmenting the vocal/acoustic guitar
centerpiece. Listen to Mike Bloom: http://www.myspace.com/mikebloom

 

 Perhaps what is
at once so fragile and haunting about Hark!…And Other Lost Transmissions, the debut album from Miracle Parade, is that it subtly finds a way into the creeks and cracks of our
everyday experiences. The music is steeped in low-fi brilliance and rustic
ambience, evoking artists that shaped him: Crosby,
Stills and Nash, Neil Young, The Byrds, and Judee Sill. Woven into each harmony
drenched lyric is an undeniable urgency; each song has a story it is desperate
to tell, yet only has the length of the song to tell it. The album will be
released June 21st. Listen to Miracle Parade: http://www.myspace.com/miracleparade

 

Nik Freitas is a singer/songwriter and
multi-instrumentalist living in Los
Angeles, CA.A self taught musician and engineer, Nik
records and plays everything on his albums. He has released 4 records since
2002, the most recent being ‘Sun Down’ in 2008. Freitas has toured his own
music extensively and has been the opening act on many U.S. tours for such
bands as Bright Eyes, Rilo Kiley, Jason Lytle of Grandaddy, and Azure Ray. His
new album is Saturday Night Underwater. Listen to Nik Freitas: http://www.nikfreitas.com/nikfreitas.cfm

 

Heidecker &
Wood, is the songwriting
and recording duo Tim
Heidecker (co-creator of “Tim and EricAwesome Show, Great Job!”) and Davin Wood (composer on “Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!”) Their first
release, Starting From Nowhere, consists of twelve songs written and
recorded at Heidecker and Wood’s home studios over the course of two years,
often with months passing between sessions. The recordings evoke the sounds of

(Jackson Browne, Seals and Croft), and ace studio rock groups (Steely Dan,
Queen). Listen to Heidecker & Wood  http://www.myspace.com/heideckerandwood
