Joey Cape (Lagwagon) forms One Week Records
Lagwagon vocalist Joey Cape has formed his own record label, One Week Records. Based at his home studio, One Week Records is concentrated around the concept of artists recording 10-track records in a seven day time period. Check out what Cape had to say about the label, along with streams of their first two releases, below.
"A One Week Record is ten songs that are recorded in seven days. The records are produced in my home studio. The artist is invited to my house to eat, drink, sleep and record music for one week. Given the limited schedule, there is no time to overproduce. The idea stems from my long-time love affair with demos. I am often disappointed with the big production that follows. I don't want to hear what the studio sounds like, I want to hear what the artist sounds like. The goal here at One Week Records is to produce high quality recordings that are an honest representation of an artist' creativity."
