so here in the midst of banging this record out (i know — will it ever be done? why does it take so long? i don’t know) i wanted to write and say:
1. thank you, as always, so much, for supporting us this year and every year. we make music ’cause we have to but we GET to make music because you make it possible.
2. hope you have a happy holiday season with your fam and all that, and that you don’t freeze to death (please!)
3. to make this season a little happier we’re including a little coupon for you worth $5 off any purchase on the site more than $12. that equals a $7 cd or hard earned money off any other purchases you want to make for gifts (for yourself or loved ones). enter the coupon code “HOLIDAZE” at checkout to get the deal (code is good through 12/31/13).
4. we’re also still running the $5 t-shirt sale though there’s only a few left…
5. please remember that you can always gift a black lab album to that special friend via itunes, a quick and painless (and last minute!) way of letting someone know you’re thinking of them and that you’re willing to share your excellent taste with them. just click the little arrow to the right of the buy button in itunes and you’re on your way.
6. and if you are planning a little black lab order please have it in before the 20th as that will be the last day we ship before the holiday (and, you know, given the weather demons, it might be wise to do it before then).
7. the album is coming along swimmingly, all the experiments we’ve been trying adding up to something cool and rich and, i hope, new. i know i’ve said this before but i sit here all day having the same feeling — i can’t wait for you to hear it.
ok, that’s all.
wishing you and yours the best for the holiday and the new year.
