What’s Org? According to Org’s Facebook page, “Org Music is signed to Warner Bros Records and distributed through WEA (Warner Elektra Atlantic) and ADA (Alternative Distribution Alliance). We are the official special projects label of the international Record Store Day campaign. We have a variety of marketing & sales, licensing & publishing, promotion & tour, manufacturing & distribution partners worldwide. We offer traditional multi format record deals with active artists, label services and distribution for artist related imprints as well as special project related joint ventures. We are also a catalog support label, having released the most important catalogs in modern music from label groups such as Warner Music Group, Sony Music, EMI, Beggars Banquet and the Universal Music Group.”
Org’s business includes vinyl reissues from bands like Nirvana, The Replacements, Failure, Sonic Youth, Teenage Fanclub and Beck, but they also do new releases from bands like 400 Blows (who just played at O’Leaver’s last week) and New York’s Caveman. From their Facebook wall Oct. 3, Org posted: “We’re excited to announce our latest signing, Capgun Coup. Here’s a taste of the new record, coming in 2012…” with a link to “Claire Doesn’t Care.” (embedded below).
I have yet to confirm this, however. There is no mention of Capgun Coup at orgmusic.com. And no mention of Org on the Capgun Coup Facebook page. In the past, Capgun Coup has released albums on Slumber Party Records and Team Love.
