Hey guys!


Welcome, come on in :) This a very special evening, and we're honored to share it with you :) This is a bit of a sentimental release for us, as it marks our 50th as a label. When considering ideas about how we could commemorate the occasion, there was really no doubt about what to do. Bring it full circle, to where it started. So that's what we did. Grab a drink, it's story time...


Back in 2006 & 2007, when we started getting things together to launch the record label, we searched for months and months to decide on what our first release would be. We were listening to everything we could get into our ears, always excited that the next thing we listened to might move us enough to actually approach the band. Unfortunately, most of the music and bands we were connecting with already had a label home, and not much else was making sense to us to make our very first release. Then on one February night in 2007, Cincinnati (where we lived at the time) was hit with a major ice storm. The morning after the storm everything was completely covered in ice. Then the sun came out. We took a drive once the roads were safe and everywhere you looked the trees were covered in melting ice and the sun was reflecting off them like crazy. Everything was bright and shimmering. The constant sound of water drops from melting ice dripping off the trees and splashing to the ground was everywhere. During this experience, as we drove around exploring, we happened to pop in a CD for the first time by a band called If These Trees Could Talk. Sometimes things just hit you in the face. It was unforgettable. 


So we reached out to the band with our ideas via... you guessed it... Myspace :) And after several exchanges on there, followed by several phone calls, a few months later we had a bunch of records in our living room. We were actually able to recently dig up the first Myspace blog post we ever made, announcing the album RIGHT HERE :) And another blog post when the albums had been delivered HERE. Seeing that thing spin around the turntable for the first time was a feeling that can never be fully recaptured. We had put out a record, and holy shit, it was a fucking great one. We went on to hang out with the dudes several times over the years between the first and second LPs, and a special bond was forged in those early days of the band and the label. These are records we still listen to, with memories still attached to each song, and there's not one god damn thing we would change.


Without further adieu, it is our honor to present to you our 50th release...
