New Record Label Launches with Album Inspired by Gustav Holst’s “The Planets”
Union Square Records, a new Minneapolis based indie record label announces the upcoming Summer 2011 release of “The Planets” by The July 4th (Brian Bradley and Nicholas Barr). The duo create a futuristic wall of sound crafted with synthesizers, guitars, acoustic piano, and dance influenced beats. A 21st century reinterpretation of Gustav Holst’s symphonic masterpiece, “The Planets” was written in cultural isolation over the course of a year. The artists found inspiration in nature and created music to reconnect with the Divine in a modern world that has seemingly lost contact.
It is time to introduce everyone to "Universal Peace Now"!!
