The Singles Collection is contributor Jason Jackowiak’s weekly column focusing on rare and essential 7″ releases. We gladly accept all types of 7″ for consideration.
We've got an extra-special edition of The Singles Collection for you this week, one that's less focused on prattling on about wildly obscure 7" slabs of wax and more concerned with letting you lot in on exactly what goes into running one of the best labels around. While at SxSW a couple weeks back, we were able to corner the crew from New York's stellar Sacred Bones Records -- label owner Caleb Braaten and artists Zola Jesus, Max Elliott and Dead Luke -- so they could give us the lowdown on what it takes to become one of the finest purveyors of the phonographic arts, how artists and labels find one another, and anything else that happened to come to mind. We hope you enjoy it. Oh, and make sure to come back next week as we'll once again return to our normal format of prattling on about insanely awesome 45's.
