Well here we are at the close of another year, and as ever it feels like it’s whizzed by super-quick.
2011 has been a braw year for Armellodie, we partied hard from the off with our 6 month residential Barmellodie in Glasgow, witnessing live performances by every act on the roster as well as a string of uber-quality guests.
We released a handful of crackin’ records - even if we do say so ourselves - with new long-players from Le Reno Amps, Something Beginning With L, The Douglas Firs and The Hazey Janes making us immensely proud.
Next year is already shaping up nicely in the camp with the delivery of Chris Devotion & The Expectations debut album out at the end of January and the new album by our latest signing, Conor Mason set to hit the shelves mid-March.
2012 will also mark five years since we stuck out our first 7” and with several of our artists – Cuddly Shark, The Douglas Firs, Thirty Pounds Of Bone – poised to return with follow-up records this year it very much feels like the label has reached a new stage of it’s infancy.
So with that in mind and with the season of goodwill upon us we’ve compiled our first ever label sampler featuring a track from each of Armellodie’s troops, you can download it for free here, think of it as a gift that just keeps on giving.
Thank you for your support, it keeps our little legs peddling.
Merry Christmas and all the best for 2012.
