Happy New Year!

It's been a big year for Purple Stereo Countdown. We started the year as a group of friends with a vague idea of starting something and now we end the year with a functioning online record label with 11 full releases (and 1 promotional release) and a total of 893 downloads of these releases. Over the year, Mas and Comaphoria have joined the original Legavrik, The Noise Engine and Hypnic Jerk in releasing albums on the label. 2010 also promises to be a big year for us, with future releases from Hypnic Jerk, Mas and Legavrik expected, as well as an exciting new release from The Anti Psychotic Budweiser Combination.

Thank-you to everyone who has been with us through this year. You've made the ride a joy to be on!
