Looking back on 2012 ... weareallghosts
Looking back on 2012, one thing I am very proud of is establishing weareallghosts. During the 9 months it has been in existence we've released 15 different albums ... from single-track drones and EPs to full albums and a compilation.
I am eternally indebted to the artists who have 'taken a punt' and entrusted their music to me. I didn't know what I was doing back in April 2012 and, to be honest, I don't think I do now ... but that aside, I could have only made it happen through the trust of the artists. My thanks go to them.
I see weareallghosts as an exercise in learning and in giving back: learning the intricacies of the netlabel community ... learning the technology ... and learning the design skills necessary to create the album covers. And giving back ... in that I am able to release music, for free, into a music community I have gained so much from. This gives me great joy.
So here's to 2013. We already have a number of releases in the works ... Jack Hertz ... Mystified ... Cousin Silas ... all have work in progress. There are also a couple of interesting things in progress too ... surprises that I hope will surprise.
Thank you to everyone who has made weareallghosts what it is.
