I was really excited to have Paper Bag Records join the BTR roster because I've been a big fan of their bands from the get-go
New York, NY (PRWEB) December 4, 2007
BreakThru Radio (BTR), the Internet's source for the World's Best Independent Music, announces today that they are currently airing a brand new specialty show from DJ Laura C. Chord, showcasing the Canadian indie label Paper Bag Records. This exciting, new show features a special playlist with many of the talented artists found on the label. The "Paper Bag Records Showcase" is the latest installment in the station's impressive series of record label specialty shows.
Paper Bag Records is a Canadian independent record label based out of Toronto, Ontario. It was founded in 2002 by Enrique Soissa and Trevor Larocque. The label was originally created to focus specifically on Toronto-area indie rock music, such as Broken Social Scene, Stars, and Tokyo Police Club. However, they recently branched out to the European indie rock scene, signing artists such as Denmark's Under Byen and Sweden's Sally Shapiro. In August 2007, Paper Bag Records was voted #14 on a list of best indie labels in XLR8R magazine, beating out much larger labels.
"I was really excited to have Paper Bag Records join the BTR roster because I've been a big fan of their bands from the get-go" says DJ Laura C. Chord. "Since their first release, Broken Social Scene's You Forgot It In People, I have never been disappointed by a Paper Bag artist. While most of the bands tour primarily in Canada, I am hoping that being featured on BTR will garner the bands more fans as they travel outside of the country."
The "Paper Bag Records Showcase" is available in the station's archive and program guide, along with all of BTR's previous record label showcases and other specialty programs.
