Vroom-Sound Goes Stubbie

March 31, 2010


Vroom-Sound Records, run by Hirofumi Shimada, has changed it’s name after 10 years of post-Shibuya-kei awesomeness. Shimada announced the name change on his blog (here) as well as plugging the first release under the new “Stubbie Records” moniker, Noonday Underground’s the k-o chorale. Vroom-Sound might be best known for being home to the manic-pop stylings of Plus-Tech Squeeze Box but it also released works by Eel, The Go! Team and even distributed Optiganally Yours’ Exclusively Talentmaker in Japan. It’ll be interesting to hear if this name change will be a part of a sonic change for the label-formerly-known-as-Vroom-Sound or just a suspiciously timed announcement. Time will tell.

You can visit the (slightly) redone website at www.stubbierecords.com or if you’re feeling nostalgic www.vroom-sound.com links right to Stubbie Records.
