This week Greenpoint-based record label Stars & Letters‘ Mark Roberts pulls together a very borough-centric mix. It represents other BK labels including Triangle Records, Secretly Canadian, Ceremony Records, Ghostly International, Mexican Summer, Captured Tracks and Sacred Bones. All one for and one for all! Ready to get real on the camaraderie?
Running a record label in Greenpoint, I’ve always been very much inspired by all the other phenomenal labels based in our community. This playlist features seven of my favorite tracks that some of our local labels have released, as well as one release from my own label, Stars & Letters. Not all songs on this list are current, some are by smaller artists, some by bigger ones. In the end, this is a deeply personal playlist full of songs I adore and, yes, that perhaps I wish I had released on my own label.
Are you a Brooklyn-based (that’s right — we’re open to folks from all over our lovely borough) musician? Then submit for a chance for us to feature your music and impeccable taste.
