Cairo Records: the Temple of Cairo is Now Open
Big news, folks—Cairo is pleased to announce "Cairo Records," the newest arm of the tiniest empire in the Northwest. Visit the Temple of Cairo to learn more about our plans to build on our rep for hosting amazing shows, sharing great mixtapes, organizing awesome annual festivals, and staying at the fore of the region's cultural revitalization by launching what we hope will be your new favorite local label. Last year's Cold Jungle compilation can go down in the books as Cairo Records #001, but it's our second vinyl/CD release that should really get you going: Golden Fjord, the long-awaited new full-length album by local trio Flexions.
Golden Fjord is a noir-esque trip, a "seething mass" of dub, decelerated disco beats, and focused, fang-baring instrumentation. It will be out on vinyl, CD, and digital formats on August 2nd.
The aforementioned handsome new Cairo Records website is also where you can find all of our free digital mixtapes, past, present, and future. Some of the mixes that we have in the pipeline are wicked-good listens, and we have a bunch of keen stuff planned for the label as well.
