Love Police have started a record label called LOVE POLICE RECORDS & TAPES, which already has four releases and is planning to make vinyl, cds and cassettes.
The new label is a creative partnership between BT from Love Police Touring and Dave Laing, and is kicking off with four releases from Warumpi Band, Melissa Carper, Alex Hamilton and Mylee Grace.
The Warumpi Band release is a very raw and very early recording of the band playing mostly covers, including a blasting version of the early Eagles rocker ‘Already Gone.’

Caper is an American up & comer, Hamilton is a Melbourne’s folk/country-rock singer/songwriter/guitarist, while Grace is an alternative-country anti-folk rock-and-roll singer-songwriter from the Northern Rivers area, whose record has been described as “music that makes you feel like you’re on holidays with friends…”
“I’ve been bringing international Artists to Australia for over 20 years,” BT says.
“Most of them have a record label with representation here, but some don’t. Some are only just starting out on their journey and don’t have a record deal anywhere.
“This label is here to license and release quality recorded music locally that we believe in. Music that might otherwise slip through the cracks, and not find a home here. We get to tell the story of that music and Artist in a bigger way. With an album, with a tour, holding hands the whole way.
“We may also delve into the past and bring back some forgotten gems. We may look down the street and discover something right there that is undeniable. Our ears are open.”
The label have merch and surprises in store and for now that they’re only selling online. All the albums are being released November 19 with more to come, but you can pre-order them all here.
