NYLON Launches Record Label
(NEW YORK) Although NYLON has been known mostly as a fashion book, the title has chronically covered music since its launch in 1999. Now, the magazine has launched its own record label, and their first EP, Barcelona by French indie-rock girl band The Plastiscines, will be released Tuesday exclusively on iTunes. NYLON editor in chief Marvin Scott Jarrett has filmed documentaries on the likes of Good Charlotte and The Horrors, but the record label is a first for the magazine. The magazine’s team not only styled the band’s first video (for the single “Barcelona”), but Jarrett shot the EP art, and the band will be kicking off NYLON’s second summer music tour in June. The magazine has other artists in the works for what they hope to be a successful, growing label, though they couldn’t comment on who might be up next post-Plastiscines.
