Call Me Up cause its to fly.

After appearing on States Rights' last two compilations and a long relationship of mutual interest we are so excited to be able to bring you Cains & Abels' first full length album Call Me Up. It's a big sounding record that swells and lilts in gorgeous ways while ranging from heartbreaking bombast to humble beauty.
Themed around the desire for human connection, Cains & Abels' new album Call Me Up is the story of a specific relationship unraveling. Lush, atmospheric guitar and elemental drums work with the reaching vocal melodies to bring to life David Sampson's tumultuous inner world, torn apart by divorce and doubt, while revealing his vulnerable desire to be healed. The lyrics intone bleak pictures of birds of prey, bones, lonely highway drives and isolating landscapes, but are able to yield an overriding sense of hope.
Call Me Up is the perfect showcase for Cains & Abels now as a four piece band progressing further from Sampson's previous incarnation as a mostly solo or solo plus one affair. The sum of four people plus an immaculate recording, Call Me Up will inhabit your days and fill them with beauty.
You can get both Call Me Up and Bad Weather California's Young Punks together for a special low price! Only 15 bucks! It's the NEW FAMILY PACK to celebrate these new artists in our SRR family. Two great records!

Also new to this corner of the internet is Lee Gull's Burn'r in our distro section. It's a great record from one half of the BeGulls with Kyle Field of Little Wings. We have a special pack for this record as well. You can pick up this record with Bad Weather California's Young Punks for only 17 bucks. It's the DOUBLE BURNER PACK!

Don't forget that all orders from States Rights Records come with our new awesome little blank notebooks for your jotting pleasure.
We here at States Rights Records have been curating a Song of the Day project for a while for our friends and collaborators at UrbanHonking. There is a little flash player in the navigation bar on the upper right. Track info gets updated here when the track gets changed and then every month or so a zip file is posted of all the mp3s. It's a great way to be exposed to new music. Keep up with it.
We've just opened a new Twitter account for States Rights. We will be posting about all kinds of stuff like new band recommendations, links to songs and videos, info about new stuff on the SRR site like podcasts. It will be an awesome way to get a little more music in your life. Follow!
The twitter account is the start of a new initiative here at States Rights thats gonna also include a new interview series, more music videos, more podcasts. Lots of really exciting stuff to come.
One more thing! There is a newish podcast available. It's called INFINITE REGGAE SUMMER/YOU CAN GET IT IF YOU REALLY WANT. It's the 10th SRR podcast and definitely one of our favorites to make. It's a pretty good soundtrack to summer if you ask us. Here's a direct link to the mp3.
SO MUCH STUFF! We are busting at the seams and so much more is coming!
