Happy Holidays!!!

Hello again!
I hope you are all ready for some explosive Holiday themed awesomeness because the 2012 NotRock Holiday Comp. has officially arrived! The finally tally of contributors brings NR-038 to a whopping 24 tracks, making it our largest Holiday effort yet! There's something for everybody on this eclectic gathering so be sure to check it out. For now you can download/purchase the digital version HERE. The CD version will be available Dec 21st at the Comp's OFFICIAL RELEASE SHOW. A purchase button for the CD will follow on the Record Shop page shortly thereafter. The show will be an evening jam-packed with awesome music (maybe cookies) and fun. Aside from getting a full set from CONTROL (playing their first show in over a year!) there will be 9 other bands playing 3-song mini-sets! The lineup for the show is as follows (although not necessarily this order) CONTROL, HIDES A WELL, PLEASE EXIST, DISSERIPH, fragmnts, MAKEOUT VERTIGO, WE USED TO LOVE, YOUNG LEGS, SEAN MILO, & SKATEBOARD KYLE. This is going to be one for the ages (it also may be the apocalypse!) so please come out and support independent music! We hope to see you there!

Speaking of Skateboard Kyle, this fine young gentleman/band has not only contributed a standout track on this years Holiday Comp but has also graced the world with a really righteous new E.P. that you must download/purchase and start listening to immediately! If you are anything like us and like records that rock faces off then look no further. "Consider This" is short and sweet but leaves a lasting impression in the eardrums of the listener. "Buzzards Bay" has been stuck in our heads for days upon days now! We do "consider this" Skateboard Kyle. We consider this awesome. We're honored you crept over from Beta Snake Records and let us release one of your songs. Keep up the great work.

Well Kiddies, we'll let you get back to visions of sugarplums and yule-tides because that is all the news fit to print this lovely month of December. See you back here in 2013 (unless the world really does apocalypse itself). Wow 2013, that sounds so futuristic doesn't it? Have a great holiday everybody! We hope to see you at the release show.
