Daptone Records Expands with Primrose Imprint Label

Since we started reviewing albums and shows fifteen years ago a few record labels have been must follows and always make RtBE excited for a new release. A few come to mind, Bloodshot, Sub-Pop etc. but perhaps none have been as consistently excellent as Brooklyn's Daptone with their retro soul sound.

Now they are expanding with the Penrose Imprint.  In their words:
Daptone Records launches Penrose , a new imprint poised to usher in a whole new era of soulful sounds. Founded by Daptone Records’ own Bosco Mann after building a new recording studio in his hometown of Riverside, California, Penrose will showcase the most exciting acts emerging on the blossoming SoCal souldies scene today.
They are commemorating this moment with a release:

For its inaugural release, the label offers up five singles by five artists: Thee Sacred Souls from San Diego; Jason Joshua from Miami; East L.A. mainstays Thee Sinseers , and The Altons ; and Altadena veterans, Los Yesterdays . All five singles are available today as a digital EP called Presenting Penrose Records . The tracks will also be available as individual 45 vinyl records (with an additional b-side) and as a full digital compilation called Penrose Records Vol.1 . out April 10.
You can pre-order this release now and peep some video below from The Altons:
