Hey internet fans! Yesterday I spoke with Cory of Three Lobed Recordings over the phone and on the air. Cory Rayborn is the owner and head of Three Lobed Recordings. Three Lobed is a small label out of Jamestown North Carolina. The label began as a website for the Philadelphia heavy pyschedelic band, Bardo Pond, who was then enthused to release on 10″ vinyl the Slab EP under Three Lobed in August of 2000. Since then, Rayborn has moved on from his undergraduate years at Duke to the University of North Carolina Law School and now practices law in High Point North Carolina. Three Lobed has steadily become more and more influential, picking up a roster of artists and friends of friends all over the country. Recently, Three Lobed re-released Bardo Pond and Tom Carter‘s studio psych collaboration, 4/23/03. It’s now a double LP with a bonus track and bonus CD of collaborations that took place on 4/25/03. Coming up this year is the second release from the Gunn-Truscinski duo, titled Ocean Parkway. There is no doubt that this is one of my favorite labels — where else can you find the likes of TarentelJack RoseHeavy Winged, and Eternal Tapestry releases all on one label?

My talk with Cory covered a lot of different territory. We spoke about his love of taping live shows, and how this made him a star in the taping community, increasing his contacts with artists. Cory also explained his philosophy on releasing music from the artists he trusts and respects. Take a listen to the interview and make sure to visit http://threelobed.com/tlr/home.html for more info on the label.

Thanks again to Cory for the time, hosting, permission, and generous support of KZSU Music.
