Music: Pass The Mic: Record Labels on 2016

Now in its tenth year, Pass The Mic is a SPB tradition where we ask the artists and record labels producing some of our favorite music to comment on the year in music: what albums they enjoyed, what bands they discovered, what their label released and what they're excited for that's coming in 2017. A few highlights:

Brent Eyestone (Bleach Everything/Magic Bullet Records)

"It would be cool if someone came up with a  new kind of subversive and interesting kind of music that wasn’t just some weird mishmash of different, preexisting genres. I want to hear some new shit or else I’ll just keep listening to my old shit that I know I like."

Will Butler (To Live A Lie Records)

"2016 will be the year that a lot of amazing queer and bands with women rose up in a lot of scenes and took charge as they should."

Halo of Flies Records

"I'm tired of hearing about how recording went, how your sound has changed. I want to care."

Read on and find out what some of our record label friends made of the year!
