Asheville’s own Mountain Express has picked up the story of Feedbands and our organic farm where member artists are welcome to spend the night for free and eat the food we are growing.
From the article:
“For now, Feedbands will continue to bring unique, independent music to the fore. The company has put out about 40 records so far. The vinyl — around 1,000 copies of each release — is pressed in The Netherlands (“We used to get them pressed domestically … but wait times, delays and equipment malfunctions were making it nearly impossible to operate a monthly subscription [service],” Langdon notes). Subscriptions cost $4.99 a month for a digital delivery of each new release, and $25 per month to receive the vinyl. There’s also a free account option for those who only want to stream content, but it doesn’t include voting privileges.”
With an interesting quote from Graham Langdon:
“The independent music curation company streams the music of nearly 2,000 independent artists, and its subscribers vote for their favorites. The album receiving the most votes at the end of the month is then pressed to vinyl and shipped to those subscribers. “These days we’re taking the name a lot more literally,” says founder and CEO Graham Langdon, who relocated the business from California to North Carolina. Along with offices in Black Mountain, Langdon also has a 4-acre farm in Fairview where he raises crops to literally feed bands.”
