anyone else bored of the snow yet? yeah us too...
to brighten your morning then please see the latest news from down here on the acre:
1) New Signing
In the last two weeks we have signed not one but two incredible additions to our roster... The first of which I can announce today... we first heard about Uno Moller through the excellent Alice Tragedy blog (www.alicetragedy.org) and fell in love with his broken down acoustic tunes. They reminded us of Sparklehorse and Elliot Smith and that was a very excellent thing.
Uno released a series of three tiny limited edition eps in 2009 and we have great pleasure in rereleasing them formally here in the UK in 2010. The release is going to be quite an interesting one - we will be collating a ten track album from the three eps for a "you name the price" style digital release, a digital bundle of all 3 records with e-booklet and a super limited edition box set featuring all three records on CD with all manner of awesome bonus bits - its almost a record and artset combined. were super excited and very happy to be working on this Uno and indeed Alice Tragedy herself on the artwork, More to come on this but for new check out
more news on another awesome signing next time.
