2. What band did you discover in 2013 (can be a brand new band or an older band) that had an impact on your life? What made them significant?
Sneeze, My band (WMBRE) played with them on our last tour a couple nights and they utterly blew me away. Raw, grungy, emotional and a good vibe of '90s influences. Not to mention the best gentlemen.

I will remember it as being a good year for the label, we signed a few more artists to the roster that show a real sense of commitment to their craft which makes me excited for the future.
4. What can we look forward to from you in 2014?
Sneeze LP, Divider LP, Where My Bones Rest Easy LP, Colony EP, and a few more awesome releases that have yet to be announced.
5. What records are you looking forward to most in 2014?
New Old Man Gloom record. That goddamn Divider LP. And of course the Sneeze LP.
6. There is a lot of debate over streaming sites and royalties, namely with Spotify. What is your stance on the economic policies behind the current streaming services? Do you have a preferred one?
I like Soundcloud a lot. I've have been finding a lot of new artists that way. Spotify as a consumer is fantastic. But coming from a label/artist standpoint they can improve areas of compensating the artists that are initially bringing them traffic and essentially constructing their business format. You treat artists fair, then then it will all come back to you.
