This year marks Nettwerk Music Group’s 30th Anniversary, and the Vancouver-born turned international Label, Management and Publishing Company will be celebrating throughout the year, starting with the release of a covers compilation called From Cover To Cover: 30 Years At Nettwerk. The full album is streaming now exclusively at PasteMagazine.com (here: http://bit.ly/15uBGxu).
Out January 27, From Cover To Cover: 30 Years At Nettwerk features current Nettwerk artists covering popular songs from the company’s rich and diverse history. Madi Diaz brings an electro-pop vibe to “You, Me & The Bourgeoisie” from fellow LA indie band The Submarines, UK-duo Coves give Angus & Julia Stone’s “Big Jet Plane” a psychedelic and haunting spin, and Radical Face strips the industrial from Skinny Puppy’s “Assimilate” for a surprisingly beautiful yet still powerful take on the track. Old Crow Medicine Show’s “Wagon Wheel,” The Weepies “World Spins Madly On,” Coldplay’s “Shiver” and “Yellow” and a slew of others also appear in a new form (full track list below).
Also launching today is Nettwerk’s new podcast series, Nettcast. Hosted by Nettwerk’s own publicity maven Penny Palmer and online-marketing guru Raj Sharma, the twice-monthly podcast features Nettwerk artists passing through Los Angeles in a series of fun and playful scenarios. From industry themed Madlibs to Tinder trolling to a round of Cards Against Humanity, nothing is off limits (at least not yet). The first episode features Scars On 45, who passed through LA while on tour supporting their latest album, Safety In Numbers. Listen here: http://bit.ly/1yHyNX1.
Nettwerk’s official birthday party will take place in Austin during SXSW on Wednesday, March 18. Stay tuned for more details.
