forty marshas
IN STORES JUNE 26th 2007

The story of how forty marshas came to be is a classic example of putting the carriage before the horse. The end result, however, is a truly beautiful and creative album. Conceived by Mike Malinin of the Goo Goo Dolls several years ago as nothing more than “a great name for a band”, forty marshas eventually evolved into a true collaborative effort, and in early 2007, Malinin gathered a collection of very talented friends and musicians at Los Angeles’ Swing House Studio.  A week later, with friends like Efrem Schulz of Death By Stereo, LA bass legend John Avila, Green Day sideman Jason Freese, along with Goo Goo Dolls touring members Korel Tunador and Brad Frenquist and others, the self titled debut release by forty marshas was complete, and is nothing shy of a musical tour de force.  Featuring the indie rock anthem “Think Big”, and a scorching cover of the Kinks’  “Sold Me Out”, this eclectic album almost plays like the soundtrack to a movie covering a large part of the musical spectrum.

We are very excited about the recent addition of
THE SOULSHAKE EXPRESS to the Beatville roster!

Hailing from Sweden The Soulshake Express are destined to become, yet another, phenomenal Swedish musical export.  Drawing influences from such rock legends as MC5, Deep Purple and AC/DC as well as the more currant Wolfmother, Helicopters and the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, these retro rockers infuse their grooves with thundering guitars and a swirling organ.  Having just finished a string of festival dates throughout Europe The Soulshake Express are headed back into the studio to complete their first full length release for Beatville Records.  In the meantime we are pleased to bring you this introductory, low budget EP ahead of the full length, which will hit the streets in early 2007.
