Call For Interns, Helper People & Internet Geniuses - December 12, 2012

Brassland is currently seeking interns and helper people. We're looking for two types of interns. Which type of helper are you?

For those who live in the New York City area, we would like you to come by our Brooklyn office on the regular. That's type one! If you don't live in the area, no biggie -- if you've got the proper skillz we can also use assistance maintaining our presence on the information superhighway. That's type two. (There's a secret third type of intern we're on the look out for as well: one who speaks Chinese and/or has exposure to Asian business and culture. A lil' indie label can dream, can't it?)

MORE DETAILS:
- Internships start in early 2013 & will last at least three months. You will be expected to be in the office two days a week
- Duties vary based on your expertise (writing, programming, etc.). Those duties will almost definitely include packing CDs
- Previous interns have gone on to bright futures as employees here & at other music-related companies
- Candidates for a remote internship need to include work samples.

HOW TO APPLY:
- Shoot an e-mail to Glenn at glenn AT brassland DOT org with the subject line "I WANT TO BE AN INTERN OR HELPER PERSON!"
- Before you shoot, make sure you've included a resume as well as a list your five favorite albums and the five most recent concerts you've attended. (Don't worry - we won't judge you...much.)
- Work samples: Remote interns need to demonstrate their genius in (1) blogging, (2) Soundcloud, (3) Bandcamp, (4) MySpace, (5) Flickr, (6) YouTube, (7) Tumblr, (8) MyShopify or (8) some crazy internet thing we've never heard of. (Nothing dirty, please.)

If you can do all that, you're hired!

Adios.

People Get Ready announce new album, NYC gigs - April 23, 2014

When is a band more than a band? People Get Ready has inspired that question since their self-titled debut was released a year and a half ago. The shows in support of the record blew many people away, and took place everywhere from DIY clubs around Brooklyn, to a cross-country opening slot for Deerhoof, to "high art" performance spaces like BAM, LA's Skirball Center and Duke University. The group frequently adds auxiliary performers and homemade instruments (i.e. a "circumstantial guitar" strapped to its wearer's back and dragged on the ground by its headstock), ....continue....

Buke and Gase debut video(s), play gigs in Asia, Tenn & NY - February 14, 2014

Happy Valentine's Day! There's good reason to open with that cheerily romantic greeting: We hear some people really love them some Buke and Gase. Take this news brief as a kind of rose bouquet to you, the B&G loving audience. But...psyche! Anyone expecting lovely smells or great new sounds will be sorely disappointed. The main sense that will be stimulated by this post is your eyes as we introduce two new viewing experiences, starting with this video for "Metazoa"—or perhaps we should call it a "video"? The band requested the only ....continue....
