If you’re reading this, it’s likely that you’re already very well informed about what we do at the Numero label. However, even we (the proprietors)  have been shocked as we’ve re-evaluated this year’s unprecedentedly fecund release schedule. The following is the whole kit-and-kaboodle: every release issued in this now historic calendar year. It was both a difficult and triumphant 12 months, but the output speaks for itself: we zigged, we zagged, we did very little that was expected. Transcendental electronics, primitive drum-machine gospel, proto-Minneapolis Sound, demonic garage, doomed psychedelia, early hardcore, ethereal spirituals, and that’s just the surface-scratchings. If you’ve missed anything (and even the tight-knit group of folks who work here frequently miss a release or two along the way) here’s a handy checklist (with some old fashioned hyper links):
