Theodore Moves to Indie Powerhouse Misra Records, Releasing Vinyl in April

2011 is shaping up to be a busy year for local noise-folk quartet Theodore. The band has plans to release both a ten-inch record and a full-length LP in the coming months, which will follow last year's Hold You Like a Lover (which we named one of the best local releases of 2010).

Lover was released on Moon Jaw Records, an imprint of Misra Records, which has released record by such acts as Shearwater, Destroyer and Centro-matic. Theodore has now made the move to Misra, which is about to relaunch about a brief hiatus. To celebrate, the label is offering an artist-curated compilation of Misra bands past and present, and Theodore's Lover track "I Won't Be a Stranger" was selected for inclusion by Southeast Engine's Adam Remnant. The comp also includes cuts by Phosphorescent, Destroyer and the Mendoza Line and can be downloaded for free here.

Reached by email, Theodore lead singer and songwriter Justin Kinkel-Schuster answered a few questions about the band's upcoming releases and its plans for the coming months.

Christian Schaeffer: How did the move to Misra come about? Justin Kinkel-Schuster: It is really a very short story. Misra's now-manager Leo DeLuca put out our last record on his Misra imprint Moon Jaw Records. My guess is we did all right with that last record and so he's asked us along for the ride to Misra Records proper, which we're happy to do.
