Well, it's almost 2012, which means our ten-year anniversary festivities are almost over. We want to take a couple minutes to thank all of our long-time fans, along with the new followers we gained over the past couple months, for joining us for an internet party of sorts. The Song-a-Day Giveaway of music downloads lasted throughout November, with a distribution of freebies running the gamut of Brassland material. It included everything from early demo tracks by The National to songs by three new bands recently signed to the label.
We even got some nice press about the November celebration, with articles in Spin, the Guardian, BrooklynVegan (here and here), Pitchfork, Exclaim, Sequenza 21, East Village Radio, Oolgy, Hot Press, and LaDepeche (we're allowed to brag, ok, it's our anniversary). New York Magazine also did this fun interview with Aaron Dessner that linked to our giveaway. So, while we spent 2011 reflecting on our ten-year history, we also highlighted what you can expect from Brassland in the future. We really owe all of you fans for making our anniversary so special. Ok, before we get too sentimental, we're going to cut to some music. Here's a recap of the song giveaway, in playlist form:
