75orLess Found Music

Friday, May 04, 2007


75orless started the 75orless Record Label back in January 2006 and has since released about one cd per month. Although many of the bands are based out of our Rhode Island locale, some of our releases were bands that submitted their cds to 75orless for reviews and ended up signing to our label, including Italy's Turnpike Glow and New York's A Passing Feeling. The goal of our label is to give more exposure to small bands that are making great music, splitting profits with the bands 50-50, handsilkscreening our jackets to create something unique for each purchaser and keeping our prices affordable. Go over to our website and check our what we have to offer. Thanks from everyone here at the 75orless Record Label.

75OL-011 Cowboy Steve K- self titled EP. Once an 80's rock devotee, he now distills his musings through the rubric of country song. Some say his songs are like a bar room sing-along without the chorus. A critic once penned that Cowboy Steve K reminded him of a drunk version of Rain Man. These wide-ranging perspectives illustrate the dichotomy that is Cowboy Steve K: half troubadour, half versifier, and half true. And that ain't half bad.

It's a reasonable question. The idea was born during our daily music chats, while discussing reviews we'd read. There was only one thing we consistently agreed on: they were too long. It seemed the point of how the music sounded and whether or not it was good was lost in an overlong mess of lyric quotes, personal accounts and a seemingly desperate attempt to fulfill a word count. Eventually someone said, "It's gotten to the point where if you can't say it in 75 words or less, you should shut the eff up". Within a week, 75orless.com was born. The best part about our limit is its reversal of typical music reviews. We limit the amount of words we use, and are not required to reach a number.

Welcoming electronic, hip-hop, indie, folk, punk, disco, pop, cock rock, math rock, brit pop, nu gaze, blues, garage, country, new new wave, rockabilly, idm, crust, techno, grindcore and all other music submissions. Where words with 2 letters or fewer do not count.
