Engine Room’s love affair with DC I guess wasn’t over after we signed U.S. Royalty, as now we’re very proud to welcome DC’s Middle Distance Runner to the family.   We’ve been following this 5-piece for quite sometime and after hearing their follow up to 2006’s “Plane in Flames” we knew this was something special and had to get involved.  The album is titled “The Sun & Earth” and will be released on October 20th…but you don’t have to wait until then to hear the songs, we’ll be streaming the album right from this site very soon.  And you can also hear them live as the guys are heading off on their first National tour on August 4th, stops include dates in Pittsburgh, Chicago, Denver and LA’s famed Viper Room (complete list below)

News :: Brand-spanking new signing: Lowry

June 8th, 2008 by Engine Room Recordings | Subscribe To The News Feed [ News]

As a long-time fan of this band, I’m extremely happy to announce on behalf of everyone else at the Engine Room that we’ve just signed Brooklyn-based act Lowry to our label. Lowry’s unique brand of neo-folk is at its best in this gem of an album, which quietly takes you on a strangely beautiful journey you’ll be glad to repeat until the songs stay with you whether they’re playing or not. We expect digital distribution of their new album, Love Is Dead, in mid summer, and the record will be available in stores across the country by the fall.

And lucky you, you can catch them at the Mercury Lounge @ 10pm TONIGHT with Low Water at 9pm and Phonograph at 11pm.

The team over here at Engine Room Recordings is tremendously excited to announce the first signing of 2008: The Bloodsugars. LEad by songwriter extraordinaire Jason Rabinowitz the ‘sugars are a great indie rock band that will get you moving on the dance floor. Infectious, synthy indie pop writing, excellent musicianship, great people. We will be releasing their BQEP digitally April 1st through Amie Street and April 8th digitally everywhere else including iTunes. The physical release will be towards the end of May with a spectacular to-be-announced release show. Oh and they’re playing a little venue called Madison Square Garden April 12th too headlining the half-time show for a Titans LaCrosse game. Special tickets on sale for that soon. Go check out the EP as it’s streaming in full on the The Bloodsugars MySpace page and be sure to let us know what you think!

Ooh, and news on the second volume of Guilt By Association coming soon! The Bloodsugars are in the middle of recording their version of a powerful little 80’s dance theme!
