We here at Label Fantastic! are super excited!
We put out records from time to time, but both of these two new releases are super epic. Both have been much anticipated for a long time, and now they have come out within days of eachother!
For “Folk Songs of Canada now”, Henry Svec- inspired by Canadian folklorists Staunton R. Livingston (The CFL Sessions) and Edith Fulton Fowke (Folk Songs of Canada) - decided to become a folklorist himself. He traveled the country collecting field recordings by a huge number of talented Canadian songwriters. Included in this incredible collection are the Label Fantastic! team of Mathias Kom, Jenny Omnichord, and Wax Mannequin, as well as our favourite recording magician Andy Magoffin, Geoff Berner, Al Tuck, Laura Barrett, Ron Leary, and whole bunch of others. It is incredible! And Henry has made it available to you for FREE!

“Gravestone Rock” presents our favourite Guelph-living in Toronto-rockers “The Skeletones Four” in their finest light. The follow up to 2009′s “Ahhhhhh” was recorded by front man Andrew Collins at his grandparents farm in the countryside of Caledon. Somehow these boys have taken their unusual time signatures and ghostly vocal harmonies, and created a new style of music that manages to be the utmost of rock, while still pulling you in with hooks that remind me of Motown. This is the best kind of rock around. They will be your new favourite band.
