Rishloo was an American psychedelic, progressive rock band formed in 2002 in the city of Seattle, Washington, USA. The band released three albums before disbanding in 2012. Feathergun was the bands last album together and now as a vinyl release serves as a tribute to a decade of inspiring music from an incredible band.
”Over the years, many of you have inquired about the meaning of the name Rishloo. Now for the very first time here is the meaning we kept to ourselves. “You know that place, that slipstream of inspiration that sits just out of reach of your conscience mind? It’s an unlimited, cascading tunnel of inspiration that ignites your soul at the most unexpected times. It’s a container of uncontainable egoless passion that, given free reign, eliminates all impossibility and encourages creation. That slipstream is Rishloo.”
Atreides Records is fortunate to have been working with Rishloo in their final days as a collective to make the Feathergun 2 x Vinyl LP. Although we are saddened by the bands split after a decade of inspiring music we still stand behind this record with great enthusiasm. It was an honor to have worked with Rishloo putting out Feathergun on vinyl. Official Pre-Order should be up by tonight at midnight (CST). We’ve been listening to the Feathergun test presses for the last month & the album transferred to vinyl really well. We’re excited to share it with you.
We are very proud to announce that we shall be releasing Rishloo‘s psychedelic, progressive rock masterpiece “Feathergun” as a double vinyl (2 x LP) very early 2012. The package will exhibit exclusive artwork & will also include a digital download card containing the full album. More information regarding release dates, pre-orders, etc. will be announced in the coming weeks.
Rishloo is an American psychedelic, progressive rock band formed in 2002 in the city of Seattle, Washington. Started back in 2002 as a collaboration between the guitar player, Dave Gillett and bassist Sean Rydquist, the band found its initial drummer, Tyler, through an ad in the local magazine, while the singer, Drew, got to join the band after they had been through the auditioning of hundreds of singers. The lineup was to be changed though after the release of the first album, Terras Fames, in 2004, as Jesse Smith replaced Tyler on the drums. In this formation the band started to build up its own distinctive sound, spending almost 3 years to work on their next album, Eidolon, which was released in 2007, once again with self financing. After the release, the number of listens on Last.fm jumped from 220,000 to over 1 million within 6 months and started building a very solid and loyal fan base for the band. Proof of the fan’s dedication stays in the fact that a fan decided to mail them a guitar, instead of selling it, since he believed that the guitar in the hands of the band would be more rewarding to him. Rishloo continued to work as an independent artist, investing all the income from the album, merchandise or ticket sales back into the production of the new album. In December 2009 that investment resulted in the release of Feathergun. Skip to the present and here we are in 2011 where a partnership has been formed between Atreides Records & Rishloo to make this double vinyl release of the now classic album possible. Coming February 2012!
We are a new label formed with a unique vision. Though our team has an outstanding collective equating to decades of experience in the field we have only recently decided to combine forces & create a label dedicated to releasing great music without compromise. Atreides Records is a vinyl-only label. This means that we shall strictly release music on wax. In this digital era we believe that the special feeling of experiencing an album on vinyl is being lost to the download & sharing of files. We intend to preserve the greatest format for music to be presented to fans by ensuring that incredible music is not lost in the sea of CD’s & iTunes releases that have congested the industry. It has become increasingly difficult for great music to be discovered as fans struggle to siphon through the mass amounts of music being produced by hobbyists across the globe. With the reduced costs associated to manufacturing CD’s or going straight to digital retailers the sea of nothingness is expanding at a rapid rate & making it more difficult for fans to locate the real gems.
We intend giving deserving bands the opportunity to be preserved in the grooves of time forever, to emerge from the sea & skyrocket beyond the atmosphere. We feel that the bands we work with deserve to be noticed & we believe that a vinyl release is a step in the right direction for up & coming or even established musicians to continue guiding their progress towards setting themselves apart from the sea of nothingness.
Stay tuned for updates. We are currently taking our time selecting the right band for our first release in what is sure to be a string of truly great albums that will literally shape a new generation of vinyl enthusiasts.
