Impose Magazine Taps Two Seattle Labels in Its Best Of 2011 Rundown

Posted by on Thu, Dec 29, 2011 at 1:13 PM

Two Seattle labels—Hardly Art at #14 and Debacle at #20—made online zine Impose’s best of 2011 list. Both are well deserving of the honor, but the inclusion of Debacle is especially heartening. Run by Megabats member Sam Melancon, the imprint issued a lot of impressive experimental electronic and drone-based music this year. Crystal Hell Pool, Sorry, Brain Fruit, Karnak Temples, Daniel Bachman, and Melancon’s own Megabats all delivered important works in beautifully designed CDs.

Check out the list here.

(It’s too bad Impose transposed Crystal Hell Pool’s album title with the artist name, though.)

I'm disappointed that Impose didn't say anything more about Hardly Art. I feel like there are a lot of great feelings I have about that label and that Impose could only mention the bands that they released recordings for in 2011.
