ARTICLES ABOUT FORT LOWELL RECORDS' 2014 RELEASES

2014 was a very busy year for our lil' ol' label.  Not only did we undergo transitioning from Tucson AZ to Raleigh NC, but we also managed releasing four full length albums: La Cerca Sunrise for Everyone, the Good Graces Close to the Sun (a split release with our friends at Potluck Foundation), moyamoya moyamoya, and Naïm Amor Hear the Walls.  We are very thankful for all of the hard work each artist put into making these fantastic albums.  But we are also thankful for all of the media attention these records received collectively; it truly does help inform people about these great musicians - which is one of our main responsibilities and reasons for doing what we do.
