Hope everyone survived the holiday madness okay! We've got such a good update here to end the year with: HEAPS of killer new items and restocks, plus a new Robotic Empire release and label t-shirt....

http://i407.photobucket.com/albums/pp15 ... vvb648.jpg
First and foremost, the newest release we've just dropped is a new full-length from Italian phenoms VANESSA VAN BASTEN, who expertly craft some of the finest tunes that could loosely fall into the ill-monikered "post-rock" sub/sub/sub-genre. Whatever you want to call it doesn't really matter, because VVB deliver the goods on Closer To The Small/Dark/Door. Fifty minutes of inspiring content is the result of years in the boiler room, with comparisons to MOGWAI, SWANS, GODFLESH and JESU close, but not fully just.

VANESSA VAN BASTEN are almost in their own realm with a smattering of genres covered across this truly diverse album. Its a lot to take in, and to encourage people to sink their teeth into this beast of a CD: we're keeping it cheap at just 6 bucks. No skimping on the packaging either, with an extensive 5-color booklet and all the trimmins. GET THIS NOW in the Robotic Empire - Online Store.

* Two songs can be downloaded within our 18-track free-2k10-label sampler (along with a bunch of other rad bands)
* Same two songs can be streamed on our Facebook page
* Same two songs are also streamable/downloadable on our Soundcloud page

Besides that label news, we've also got a new Robotic Empire t-shirt that we mentioned earlier in the month but needs further attention. Years ago, our Richmond-based friend (and awesome artist) Ryan McLennan designed an t-shirt image for us with two bears tearing apart a robot dear, which went on to become one of the most popular label-shirts we've made to date. Now, almost exactly 4 years later, we finally printed up the "sequel" to that shirt.

Illustrated at roughly the same time but only just now finally put to print, we've got a "new/old" Ryan McLennan Robotic Empire t-shirt design, and are pretty damn stoked with the results. What's shown here is a mockup of the actual print (photo coming soon) but we've printed this new one in the same color scheme as the first, but with this time a big ass MOOSE smashing apart a robot bear. You can [url=http://i407.photobucket.com/albums/pp152/roboticempire/mclennan_shirt2-600px.jpg[/img]click here[/url] for a slightly bigger mockup, and this is available now in the Robotic Empire - Online Store.

Besides that much-needed label activity, there is a MASSIVE amount of awesome new items and restocks for this update as well. So much that its hard to even know whereto start, so you may just wanna check out the full list(s) below. Basically we got a killer mountain of stuff from Armageddon (BRAINBOMBS, DROPDEAD, TRAGEDY), Hydra Head (JESU, TORCHE, BOHREN & DER CLUB OF GORE), glorious Burning World/Roadburn imports (GNAW THEIR TONGUES, HARVESTMAN, NEUROSIS, WINO), Tee Pee (QUEST FOR FIRE, F*ING WRATH) Magic Bullet (GHASTLY CITY SLEEP, MADE OUT OF BABIES, mad restocks) plus the new SADDEST LANDSCAPE split 9", the outrageous/crazy/limited LANDMINE MARATHON triple-cassette box set (w t f) and the WHITE SH!T 10" (memz of KARP/BIG BUSINESS/MELVINS/WRANGLER BRUTES/etc), amongst other rad rad stuff.

Hot damn! Not a measly update to end the year on, eh? Another hearty "thank-you" is definitely due to all the folks who've ordered from us this year and continue to come back for more. Its been a total rollercoaster of a year and we literally could NOT continue to do this without you, as most small/mid-sized distros like ours have faded away due to all the pressures of the world. So it feels really good to still be here, doing our thing... and having folks actually appreciate that means more to us than we can even explain, so THANK YOU so much. Hopefully you've enjoyed the music, the free stuff we typically throw in with orders and are just generally happy with our little operation. 2011 should be a good one too, and we look forward to all the crazy changes that the rollercoaster of life will continue to bring. Jah bless, peace!
