Rivulets Join Chairkickers' Union

Catherine Lewis reports:
Minneapolis slowcore outfit Rivulets have just finished recording their self-titled debut album with Low's Alan Sparhawk in Duluth. It will be released in January on Chairkickers' Union, the label run by Low which, up to this point, has only been used to release Low EPs, singles and side projects. The nine songs on the album feature such notable guest musicians as Sparhawk and Mimi Parker, and LD Beghtol, a prominent guest vocalist on the Magnetic Fields' 69 Love Songs and the mastermind behind the NYC chamber-pop ensemble Flare.
