Please Welcome The Flintettes!

It goes without saying that we here at LA-TI-DA have been looking forward to announcing this one ever since their debut at Fall Down/Get Down this past November: please join us in welcoming The Flintettes!

Flintettes-coverFeaturing Mike Flintoff (The Tranzmitors), CC Rose (Vancougar) and Marissa Johnson (Dizzy Eyes).  

The three track single is slated for an April release. We’ll hang back on pre-orders until after spring break. Until then, here’s a stream of the lead off track:

All celebratory and welcoming drinks can be sent to the judges table at the SOUL CLAP DANCE OFF where Mike and the ladies will be joining the panel looking to give the $100 CASH PRIZE to a dancer with some serious moves! It doesn’t matter if you’re competing or just shakin’ your butt, Saturday promises to be a night jam packed with fun! Come early for Calvin Love, The Shivas, and The Ballantynes and stay late for the best cuts from Jonathan Toubin and Vinyl Richie.

The Ballantynes Announce March West Coast Tour!

TourPoster3A busy year at home brought The Ballantynes into the daylight at Squamish Live! and Rifflandia, and found them opening for garage greats like the Oblivians and Roky Erickson, but on the cusp of Spring with their latest LA-TI-DA Records release making its rounds, Vancouver’s soul-drenched seven piece find themselves itching to tour on their new “Liquor Store Gun Store Pawn Shop Church” EP. The 12 date tour winds its way along the West Coast March 15th – 29th, kicking off in Spokane, WA with dates down to Long Beach, before creeping back on up for a finale in Seattle. With wanderlust, homes away from home, and warmer weather lighting up their eyes, the septet are eager to revisit the sites and the company that dot their album covers and echo through their songs respectively.

Send them off Saturday March 1st with The Shivas and Calvin Love at Electric Owl Social Club with Jonathan Toubin’s SOUL CLAP DANCE OFF!

Dates below:

Saturday March 15th – Spokane, WA – Mootsy’s

Sunday March 16th – Boise, ID – The Crux

Monday March 17th – Reno, NV – Singers

Tuesday March 18th – Sacramento, CA – The Press Club

Thursday March 20th – Santa Rosa, CA – A PIZZA PUNX JOINT

Friday March 21st – Oakland, CA – Eli’s Mile High Club

Saturday March 22nd – San Jose, CA – The Blank Club

Sunday March 23rd – Long Beach, CA – Alex’s Bar

Happy New Year!


We’re ringing it in with a whole lotta new releases! All titles are in stock and ready to ship!

Needles//Pins 12:34 (LTDR-LP002) 

Reissue of their debut release! If you slept on the first run on Mammoth Cave, here’s your mulligan!

We have a very limited quantity of clear vinyl copies up for grabs today. Like, less than 50. First come, first served. We’ll update this post when they are no longer available.

Speaking of colour vinyl, there are limited amounts of colour vinyl available for the three latest singles: Needles//Pins (clear, less than 50), The Wild Ones (green, less than 20), and Steve Adamyk Band (orange, less than 30). In the case of the SAB single, VERY limited amounts: proud to say this has been our strongest selling pre-order ever. Again, we will update this space when the colour copies are no longer available. Check out your purchases on the “records” or “our catalogue” tabs.

BTW: we have a shortstack of the amazing L.A. Drugz debut on Hovercraft. If you want to top up your order with a copy, they’re $10–just give us a shout and we’ll adjust your shopping cart. Also a few last copies left of the SAB single and the Ketamines single on Hosehead. Just holler.

So much great stuff to share in the coming weeks and months. Tours, new releases, shows we’re putting on, songs turning up in unlikely places–we’ll keep you posted!
