Welcome to MLMC, Home of Dapper Kitty Music, Gothic and Main Publishing, and The Butler Place (Our Store).
MLMC Media is a limited partnership housed in Northampton, Massachusetts, located in The Pioneer Valley (otherwise known as “The Happy Valley”). Incorporated in 2014, this independent media company was created to breathe new life into the stagnant fields of publishing, music engineering and record production, and ultimately, radio. In preparation for the launching of our radio podcasts in 2017, we’re also selling T-shirts with our taglines, slogans, and news-related jokes at The Butler Place.
Come back and visit us often. We will continue adding to our line of products: novels, short story collections, poetry collections, music, and other related merchandise.
You could say that the idea for MLMC germinated back in 2009 at a small college radio station in The Deep South, where two DJs brought the fun back into radio with The Holy Librarians Archive of Weird, Rare, and Interesting Music. Their show won over fans, earned a few awards, and inspired other DJs to combine comedy, intelligent conversation about music, and songs that challenged the cliché that college radio and alternative music had become.
The spirit that motivated that show drives MLMC Media. We strive to innovate rather than imitate. The following are our publishing imprints scheduled to be launched in spring 2017: Gothic and Main, Nighthawks, and Mister Murray Publishing. Through these outlets, as well as through our current imprint (Gothic and Main) and our current record label (Dapper Kitty Music), we offer author contracts and music contracts that favor writers, musicians, and spoken word artists.
And as a bonus, we offer a free page on creating your own music on a shoestring budget. Mini’s Page: Building a Music Studio on a Shoestring Budget is intended for a special young woman who will be studying engineering at college, but loves music. Our hope is that other music lovers will find here useful tips on making music without breaking the bank.
As one of our T-shirts proclaims, at times we can be eclectic with a very short attention span, so we ask that you please check the MLMC Media page often for new material and updates.
