Over 7000 Plays on Tradiio

Over the past couple of days we’ve seen some of our artists gain healthy positions in the charts of the music discovery platform, Tradiio. 

At the time of writing, Lindsay Llewellyn’s song ‘Paint It’ was at #12 in the UK Rock Chart and Oak Hero’s song ‘Come Home’ was at #28 in the UK Folk Chart. And just yesterday, The Ramisco Maki Maki Rocking Horse made it all the way to #4 in the UK Country Chart for his song, ‘Manufactured By My Brain’.

This is all very exciting for the label. Our artists have been played over 7000 times on Tradiio since we signed up a few weeks ago. And when it comes to Lindsay Llewellyn, one in every two people who hear her songs on Tradiio decide to invest in her. 

Want to see what the fuss is about? Head over to Tradiio and check it out for yourselves: http://www.tradiio.com/referral/54e4e0fc57ddf

Thanks for sparing an ear folks, keep listening!

The Ramisco Maki Maki Rocking Horse has been quietly working on a follow up to Squawk! So quietly in fact, that even Planet Groucho Records have been locked out of the studio.

Oak Hero by Oak Hero

Midnight Finger Painter on Vinyl?

A Few Words From Capt’n Groucho

For many a moon and then some, the Planet Groucho Records website sat un-changed and somewhat neglected on the dusty plains of the internet. While folks still frequented the website to partake in some musical wares, their experience was no doubt less exciting than discovering an odd sock. The internet of today expects more. We intend to give it more, starting today with a lick of paint and some new features. 

Buy This Record (Gumroad Integration)
You can now buy records directly from Planet Groucho Records via Gumroad without having to leave the website. Gumroad’s modest pricing plan means we can lower the price tags and still make more money for the artist and the label.
