Magic Bullet 2010 Year-End Podcast Available for Free Download!

As 2010 nears its end, reflection mode has kicked in and I’m realizing what an unbelievable year it’s truly been. If anyone were to tell you that CHRISTIE FRONT DRIVE, INTEGRITY, THE ALL-AMERICAN REJECTS, and CHARLES MANSON would not only have records on the same label, but all in the same year, it’s not very likely that you could envision any scenario where that were possible. And yet that somehow happened. CHRISTIE FRONT DRIVE‘s S/T (aka The Stereo Record) was unearthed and remastered, INTEGRITY gave us two of the greatest songs the band has ever written, THE ALL-AMERICAN REJECTS brought their latest studio record over here (our first certified gold record!), and we somehow locked down four previously unheard CHARLES MANSON records for release.

This was all on top of a band new THIS WILL DESTROY YOU pic disc, a YEARS double album, MADE OUT OF BABIESThe Ruiner finally seeing LP treatment, GHASTLY CITY SLEEP‘s debut full length Moondrifts, MEDITATIVE SECT‘s Laceration Points LP, a letterpress/reissue edition of FORENSICSThings to Do… LP, FORENSICS You Don’t Have to Win, But You Have to Fight, and represses galore.

Basically, a lot of shit went down and I fully understand if it was tough to keep up with everything. As a means to show appreciation and perhaps even make sure that nothing slipped through the cracks in your search for new music, I stayed in (this is not a new phenomenon) and put together a podcast (this is a new phenomenon) featuring about 80 minutes of jams and commentary. You can pull it down from:

The show features plenty of highlights from 2010, some crucial 2009 stuff you may have missed, and a look ahead at 2011. Bands featured: DISAPPEARER, CHRISTIE FRONT DRIVE, THE ALL-AMERICAN REJECTS, CHARLES MANSON, INTEGRITY, FORENSICS, DOOMRIDERS, YEARS, GHASTLY CITY SLEEP, MEDITATIVE SECT, GOLDEN CITY, A CITY SAFE FROM SEA, JESUIT, SSORC, THIS WILL DESTROY YOU, and MADE OUT OF BABIES.

It was fun making this and I hope you enjoy listening to it.

Happy Holidays,
Brent

Detail: Years “Semblance” CD : first pressing

We heard that CD’s were dead, so what better time than now to issue a DOUBLE CD featuring all sorts of soundscape pieces without vocals? Thank black baby Jesus that we’re still a privately-held company and don’t have stockholders or anything…

Anyway, some of you may already own the YEARS | VENTOUX split CD that we put out a couple years back. This is YEARS‘ (aka Ryan Parrish) follow-up effort, nearly two hours of aural bliss.  It’s fucking AWESOME.

Get it for $6 ppd in the webstore now.

Extensive interview with Ryan Parrish (Years, Suppression, Ghastly City Sleep, etc.)

Graham Scala (of FORENSICS, REAL TALK, VENTOUX, MEDITATIVE SECT, et al) sat down with Ryan Parrish (YEARS, SUPPRESSION, GHASTLY CITY SLEEP, et al) for a rather comprehensive overview and discussion on all of the musical projects he’s currently involved with.

In 2010 alone, Magic Bullet has issued no less than three full lengths (one being a double disc) involving Ryan’s projects. Needless to say, his passion for music and his commitment toward performing relentlessly around the world before people is unquestionable.

The interview is featured in RVA Magazine and can be read in its entirety here.  Enjoy.

YEARS preview track and 2xCD information posted!

We have posted a preview track from Semblance, the forthcoming 2xCD from Richmond, VA’s YEARS. The track is titled “Magnificence” – a title that is truth in advertising if we’ve ever heard it.  Absolutely gorgeous piece of music…  Check it out here.

You’ll remember YEARS from the split CD we issued with VENTOUX a couple years back.  That was but a taste.  This new mega-full length is the main course, the dessert, the coffee before the check, and the doggie bag that they fold up into that tight tin foil swan thing.  Oh yeah: it’s only one dude.  Ryan Parrish.  You’ve seen him play music before, be it with DARKEST HOUR, GHASTLY CITY SLEEP, SUPPRESSION, CITY OF CATERPILLAR, and so on.  One of our favorite guys on the planet hands down.

Semblance hits stores everywhere November 10, 2010.  We’ll have copies well before then in the webstore.  Stay tuned, stay stoked on new music.
