    The Evens Biography

    American hip-hop MC, born May 20, 1972 in East Flatbush, Brooklyn, and raised in Uniondale, New York. A founding member of the [a=Leaders Of The New School], and later the [a=Flipmode Squad].

    The Evens are a Washington D.C. duo, formed in the fall of 2001, comprising of Ian MacKaye (Minor Threat, Fugazi, The Teen Idles, Embrace) and Amy Farina (The Warmers, Ted Leo and the Pharmacists). After Fugazi entered a hiatus, the Evens began practicing extensively, and eventually played a few shows and recorded a self-titled album, released in March 2005 on MacKaye's label, Dischord Records. The Evens are known for their unusual choices in venues for performances and the stylistic change from what many have dubbed the "D.C." or "Dischord sound". The Washington Post has described the sound as "what happens when post-hardcore becomes post-post-hardcore".

    The Evens first gained notice in late 2003 when they created a video for their original children's song "Vowel Movement", which was made for Pancake Mountain, a Washington, D.C. internet-based children's program. The clip fueled furthered rumors of Fugazi's breakup amid their hiatus, while adding speculation as to MacKaye's new musical direction. The song featured sing-along lines and upbeat music in the vein of Sesame Street and other children's educational programs, while the video showed dancing children and colorful vowels.

    The Evens are significant for fans of MacKaye because it is his first project aside from Fugazi since Pailhead (1988), his first non-Fugazi related LP since Embrace, released in 1987, and his first and probably only music video with "Vowel Movement".

    In June and July 2006, MacKaye and Farina recorded new music that they wrote earlier in that year. On November 6, 2006, they released their second album entitled Get Evens, which featured this new music.

    On Saturday, May 24, 2008, Amy Farina and Ian MacKaye welcomed their first child, a son named Carmine Francis Farina MacKaye.

    The Dischord site announced that The Evens are working on a new album on June 22, 2012. In September 2012, the website announced that the new album called The Odds would be released on November 20, 2012.

    The album The Odds was listed 45th on Stereogum's list of top 50 albums of 2012.

    Label - Elektra

    Elektra Records was started by Jac Holzman in December, 1950, in New York City. The original parent company for the label was the Elektra-Stratford Record Corp. Elektra initially recorded folk music, ethnic music, jazz and gospel, although it later expanded into blues, pop, and rock music.

    In 1963, Jac started Nonesuch as a sub-label for inexpensive classical releases. (Nonesuch is now an affiliated label of Warner Bros. Records under the Warner Music Group).

    By the late '60s, Elektra was having success with artists like The Doors, Judy Collins, Tim Buckley and Bread. But the record business was changing and Jac knew Elektra could not survive as a small independent label. Jac talked to Warner Bros. about combining the two companies and establishing a record distribution arm. He received 10 million dollars for Elektra and agreed to remain with the company for three years.

    In 1974 Elektra was merged with Asylum Records. It was later merged with Atlantic and Lava to become The Atlantic Records Group, under the larger Warner Music Group.
