Happy New Year! Happy 10th anniversary! Welcome to our new site!

How's it going? Have your New Year's Eve bruises become bearable yet? Did you smell bad when you woke up? Well all is renewed now!! It's a new year.

Speaking of newness, welcome to our brand-spanking new website! Thousands of emails, beaucoup internet wizardry, holiday interruptions and global hard work went into this new site! We are still working out the kinks so be gentle. If you are sentimental or need some time to adjust to the change, our old site is still up at for a limited time. We don't think it's as good as this new one but, hey, we respect your nostalgia.

On that topic and speaking of oldness, did you know that this was Brassland's 10th anniversary? Probably not because we don't make a big deal of these things. (Just look at V0.0's very first news story -- not that informative, huh?) Anyway, the idea for the label was hatched in our minds a little more than ten years ago. Our first two records -- The National's self-titled debut, and Clogs debut Thom's Night Out -- were both released in 2001 around the same time. The exact dates are lost in the mists of time. (And to be honest, the first releases initially creeped out into the world quite quietly, only attaining distribution months after the finished products first arrived in our hot little hands.)

We are trying to make our 10th something of an occasion but please, be patient, we are still a small (yet mighty) organization. For more details, keep an eye on this space as well as Facebook and Twitter.

Get ready cause this year is gonna be ace and we thank you, as always, for being a part of it!
