Grace Vonderkuhn Signs to EggHunt!! Posted 15 Nov 2017

GRACE VONDERKUHN HAS JOINED EGGHUNT

It was with great pleasure that team Eggs got to announce the signing of Grace Vonderkuhn to the label this past Monday. When we got the album submission back in August, it was one of those OMG moments, "we've gotta sign this artist." I can't tell you how much this album means to us, the song writing it so immediately catchy and energetic, it's like an old friend has just showed back up on your doorstep in the rain, and you open the door "Hey! omg, what...!??" The album was ironically recorded by an old high school friend of mine, Matt Morrissette (so another reason that this is super fun for us!) and he used a Tascam 8 track to tape. So the album has an amazing vintage tape sound, and the process imparted amazing guitar tones and bass cuts. Grace kills it on guitar, and the singing is passionate and fun, and just gets stuck in your head at work all day, so be careful!! - Adam

Stay tuned for all things Grace, and keep an eye out for a forthcoming single! In the meantime you can catch her at select tour dates seen below!








Doll Baby Tours With Bat Boy! Posted 31 Oct 2017

Fresh off the release of Hell Block EP, Doll Baby has packed up their road gear and crammed into a tiny van with Bat Boy for a generous east coaster. If you happen to be in the immediate vicinity of these two bands best advice is to take the next day off work, and get yourself primed up with a little pre partying then hit the gig in full force. You can email me at: adam@egghuntrecords.org to let me know what a great time you had, or basically how much you can't remember because it was such a good night. #EGGYEAH




Double Release Friday!! Posted 15 Oct 2017

This past Friday The 13th (not joking) we had a first ever double release day at EggHunt Records. The excitement was real and palpable around the office with many an Egghead getting a cardboard paper cut as we boxed and shipped at a frantic rate to get the new double release orders OTD.


The two releases in question are EggHunt official release #25 Doll Baby Hell Block and release #26 Little Coyote The Trouble With Teeth. Each release has special meaning to the Egg-team for different reasons. Doll Baby's EP is such a new direction for EggHunt with its powerful punk / alt rock vibe and fearless singing from Julie Storey. And Little Coyote's release is an EggHunt first as the band is from another country! Well, lets say our kind neighbors in Canada- being from Toronto. We are really excited to share both releases with all of you, and its fun to see the roster and discography grow.

Minor Poet Releases Debut Album And How! Posted 25 Aug 2017

Today we are proud to release the debut album from RVA band, Minor Poet. The LP, entitled "And How!" is a testament to the passion of one man's vision. That man, Andrew Carter not only wrote all the songs on the album, he literally played every instrument recorded. In a digital world where one songwriter can use midi data to record an electronic album (which is cool enough!), the thought of recording every instrument in analog fashion and have it come out this beautifully is just plain sick!

Magnet magazine thought so, as they streamed the entire album the other day and gave a cool write up. Check out the album stream HERE, and if you are so inclined... grab a copy of the 12" limited edition vinyl plus poster/sticker + download. #EGGYEAH

Big Baby Release Sour Patch EP & Tiny Mix Tape Review Posted 17 Jul 2017


Friday, July 14th was a special day as it marked the release of Sour Patch EP. Stream the EP right now at Spotify. The 5 song EP was tracked and mixed in EggHunt official studios. Landis Wine from EggHunt's very own bands White Laces & Opin engineered the songs, and EggHunt partner Greg Gendron mastered the EP. Moreover, Big Baby crafted a perfect combo of melodic, fuzz drizzled indie pop. Ali Mislowsky the lead singer talks about the genesis of the EP- “Sour Patch is about the worst year I had after graduating college. I couldn’t catch a break and it felt like everything was crumbling from every direction. I wrote the songs during that time, and picked them out for the EP. Lemons is the first song we wrote as Big Baby, and Everybody was written in early 2017. The rest span the year or so in between. They’re upbeat, poppy and bouncy but I wrote a lot of the lyrics in tears.”

Egghunt is pleased to announce the addition of a new artist to our roster, Richmond's Minor Poet.

Inspired by the harmonies and sounds of bands like The Beach Boys, The Zombie's, Yo La Tengo, and the Magnetic Fields, Carter's lyrics weave in and out of pondering existential crises and common mundanities.


Check out the premier for the single "River Days" on American Songwriter here.
"The dreamy, harmony-rich track is the perfect soundtrack to a slow float down an endless river, just in time for summer."

And How! is due out August 25th, for digital download and 12" LP Record, which you can pre-order here.







Opin Premiere New Video & Announce Tour Dates Posted 09 May 2017

The Grey Estates recently premiered a new video for "Get Home" by Opin. Click HERE to read the article. According to Grey Estates, "The pulsing instrumentals, twinkling synths and sweeping melodies are as fantastical as the video, with each passing second revealing another element in a carefully pieced together collage. Whether the addition of looped vocals, or a quickly disappearing dreamy keyboard line, "Get Home" holds your attention with its colorful and vibrant spirit."
