Paper + Plastick has today revealed a project that has been in the works for many weeks. Starting today, the label’s entire catalog of music from 2008-2011 can be streamed on its newly revamped YouTube channel - from the label’s beginnings with Landmines’ self-titled LP and the early 10” releases, to its more recent high-profile releases with bands like Make Do and Mend, Red City Radio, The Gamits, Flatfoot 56 and many others.
Over 400 songs in total are now available on the label’s YouTube page, with the most recent 2012 releases to come soon. Speaking about the decision to stream the entire catalog on YouTube, label owner Vinnie Fiorello pointed out the website’s massive user base as the main reason to expand.
“There are hundreds of millions of people who use YouTube every month,” Fiorello says. “It’s a place of not only finding user-driven content and blogs, but also a supreme source of finding new music. Times are always changing, and more young people are using YouTube to find new music than ever. We are excited to put up our discography up for streaming via YouTube, hopefully to have the those moments of a complete stranger to the label possibly finding one of their new favorite bands.”
