Lindsrom's Feedelity Recordings and Smalltown Supersound–home to Tussle, Bjørn Torske, and others–have announced they will merge to form a new label, Strømland Records. Though information on the new label is still a little scarce, the two parties have confirmed a first release, the self-titled debut album from S.F.-based musician Dominique Leone.
A man of many talents, Texan-born Leone is known as a prolific songwriter, producer, singer who knows as much about classical music as he does about pop, and uses both in his own work. Think weirdly arranged synths and guitar chords paired with vocals everyone is likening to the Beach Boys, and you're in the ballpark.
