Atlas Records Compilation Volume 1

Just in case readers have not visited the website yet, I wanted to make it even easier for everyone to see the details for the Atlas Records Compilation Volume 1.

We suppose this sentence should sound something like "Atlas Records is a record label and a community of artists..." but that would be too easy, and it wouldn't be fair to the people who have invested their blood, sweat and tears to see this thing through. It wouldn't be fair to suggest that the bands we carry are made up of some truly talented, creative people; it should go without saying. Our Artists possess an unrivaled passion for the music they make. We've sought out those bands that have been writing music and playing shows for years, bands that exhibit a certain, undying devotion, and we offer them the means to go above and beyond. Atlas is said to have held the heavens on his shoulders. We devote a similar strength and endurance to providing a stepping-stone, a backbone, and a stage for the music that has changed our lives.

1. I Do Believe (We Shall Overcome) - stillmank.
2. In Place - Tiny People
3. You Got Nunchucks, Lady? - Bermuda Urn
4. Curious Reactions - The Wellfrogs

Today, Tuesday November 16th, marks the launch of the new and improved Atlas Records website at; where you can find the free download of the Atlas Records Compilation Volume 1.

Like This!

The new website, put together with the help of John Saladino, is actually much different from the previews you saw a few weeks back. The designer we had working on the website was unable to finish, so we started from scratch with John. The site now includes pages for each of our artists (Evan Luberger, Kid Twist, Magnolia Sage, Moniker, Sparta Philharmonic, and The Wellfrogs) where you will find a short bio, a streaming track from the compilation, and link to the artists' other pages. On the website you can also find details of all of our events, releases, a photo gallery, an online store, and a detailed description of what we are all about. Maybe we can help your music career.

What may be the most exciting part of the website, is the Atlas Records Comp. Vol 1. This is a compilation of all of our signed artists, and other we have worked with available as a free download. The comp really has something for everyone as it touches on the genres of rock, indie, screamo, chamber music, electronic, pop, post-rock/hardcore, and folk.

So at this risk of sounding redundant, please visit the Atlas Records website, leave us some feedback, and don't forget to download the free compilation.

Evan Luberger

Evan is an indie folk rock singer and songwriter from Sparta, NJ who is currently a student at Montclair State University (MSU). He signed on with Atlas Records in the very beginnings of the organization with a sizable body of work already prepared. Atlas did a small scale unofficial release of his first EP "Georgia Sucks" this past summer. The EP will be available through the new website when it launches on the 16th of November. Here is a video for the song "Sacred Ground" which Evan shot well while he was at school for a year in Georgia.
