Cairo is a scrappy little Capitol Hill space that dabbles in a variety of artistic enterprises: music, apparel, screen-printing. Flexions are a scrappy little Seattle band (guitarist Devin Welch, bassist Robin Stein, and drummer Tyler Swan) that similarly dabble in a variety of styles--punk, dub, post-rock, and the like--to craft their dark, grooving songs. So it's fitting that Cairo would announce the launch of a record label with Flexions' forthcoming sophomore album Golden Fjord as their debut release, due out August 2 (album artwork above). And what better time to break into the lucrative record retail market on Capitol Hill, amirite?!
