RareBreed Recording Company is a new label started by Vinnie Fiorello of Less than Jake and Obi Fernandez of Westbound Train. They want to bring the Flexi disc back and will be releasing singles of ska and soul. Sounds pretty cool to me, as long as their is a digital download included as well. The debut single from the label is The Young Ones, a ska band consisting of Anthony Raneri of Bayside. They cover “the Young Ones” from Cliff Richard and The Shadows. Have a listen below.
RareBreed Recording Company, a brand new label whose culture and aesthetic is deeply rooted in 60’s soul and reggae tradition, proudly unveils the debut single from new Ska and Reggae artists The Young Ones, featuring Anthony Raneri of celebrated indie and punk band Bayside on vocals.
The track, aptly titled “The Young Ones,” is a cover of the 1960’s classic from Cliff Richard and The Shadows, and is available as the debut release from the newly launched imprint, whose mission it is to shine a spotlight on two genres currently experiencing a resurgence, and are arguably more successful than they’ve been in their storied history.
Released on white flexi-disc vinyl, the new Young Ones single is available as part of the label’s Collector’s Box Set subscription series (currently shipping now), with future releases to land in subscribers’ mailboxes every two months (white Flexi vinyl is exclusive to box-se subscriptions, black flexi single available and limited to 135 for those not wanting to be a part of the subscription).
