We are proud to announce a new release from New Haven, CT's No Line North. Dreams of Trees, Part 1 will be available on limited edition CD and digitally on April 28th, with Part 2 due out in early 2018. Dig the Neu-Americana of "Line Drive" below in the first video from this collection. Pre-orders available here.

To celebrate the release of the record locally, we're hosting a celebration this Saturday, March 25th at Lyric Hall in New Haven. It's going to be a blast, with local heroes The Sawtelles and The Proud Flesh on the bill, and proceeds going to a most worth cause -- IRIS (Integrated Refugee and Immigration Services). Though we're still a month out from the official worldwide release, we will have CDs on-hand, available early and exclusively to all who attend. Come hang with us! 




Tomorrow night at Cafe Nine in New Haven, Twin Lakes Records and friends will celebrate the man, the myth and legend of song, Willie Nelson. On the bill are local treasures from the Greater New Haven area: Bop Tweedy, Frank Critelli, Dave Hogan, Rivener (Paul Belbusti/Michael Kiefer) & Lys Guillorn, Kelly Kancyr, No Line North, Olive Tiger (solo), The Sawtelles, and Xavier Serrano (Kindred Queer) will all be there, playing their interpretations of the classics, deep cuts and hidden gems from his extensive songbook

We all know the hits, but Willie's songbook goes DEEP. I didn't realize how deep and what an amazing talent he was until Jon from No Line North approached me with the idea of putting this show together. Once I started really listening, I got hooked. Willie just turned 83 last month. We've seen enough tough losses this year, so let's celebrate life and that of a living legend! This is a benefit concert with all proceeds going to the CT Food Bank. The New Haven Independent just published a story about it, and you can check the flyer for's gonna be a hoot! 


We are thrilled beyond words to announce the release No Line North’s, Farther Out Beyond Today, which hits the streets on CD/DL October 14th and can be pre-ordered now from the band's online store

No Line North’s broad influences and instrumentation work their way into a uniquely unified sound that runs the spectrum from distorted garage rock to orchestral, quiet folk. Incorporating violin, loop pedals, vibraphones, distorted guitars and a driving rhythm section, NLN cultivates sizzling, psychedelic folk rock rooted in the Americana tradition, with the occasional nod to krautrock. 

Mastering Engineer Hans DeKline (Pixies, Snoop Dogg) summed up their new collection nicely: “Love these tunes! This is very original and fondly reminiscent of a Dinosaur Jr., Camper van Beethoven, Built to Spill kind of vibe but they have definitely got their own thing going. So cool!”

The band released their eponymous debut under the moniker Closely Watched Trains on Twin Lakes in October 2009. That first collection received much critical acclaim with The New Haven Register citing it as Connecticut’s best release of the year and The Big Takeover calling it “fresh and inspired.” Since that first release, No Line North has grown to become a powerful and tightknit unit, honing their craft by playing shows and woodshedding while finishing Farther Out Beyond Today. The result is a rocking collection of songs that transcends and bends genres in the best ways possible, sounding familiar yet strikingly unique. The album, which was recorded and produced by the band and friends at various locations, and mixed by NLN bassist John Leonard at SonicBot Productions, sees its official release on October 14, 2014.
