It looks like Jackpot Records label—hitherto popular for its reissues from classic area bands like punk legends the Wipers, vaguely religious rockers A New Dawn as well as cult groups like Boston Spaceships and experimental music god Jandek—is stepping up its label game a bit. The label, run by Isaac Slusarenko, who also runs two lovely brick-and-mortar Portland record stores of the same name, plans a handful of releases from local artists later this year including Dave Depper's re-recording of Paul McCartney's RAM album
(tracks can be grabbed for free right here
); a full-length from Portland indie rock super-group Ylang Ylang
; a disc from noisy/hairy Sam Coomes side-project Crock
; and a re-issue of Dutch punk/R&B outfit The Outsiders' 1968 CQ LP
Slusarenko says more details will come along really soon, but being the record junkie that he is, we expect to see all of this stuff on sweet, sweet vinyl (and quite possibly only
on vinyl). Can't wait!
