So here we are, ZEGEMA BEACH RECORDS is one year old. How cute. We want to thank all of the bands, labels, photographers, promoters, artists, concert-goers, fans, friends and so much more...thanks. Thanks. Thank you so much. This has easily been the best year of my (Dave) life, where I coupled passion with action after waiting over a decade to do so. Again, truly, thank you everyone. We need to have a giant Starship Troopers party one day.
So enough gushing, it's time for our first sale! Take 25% off until xmas! We didn't take it slow in the first year, and helped realize a whopping 30 releases! Holy cow! That's a lot to choose from, but the discount applies to your entire order so feel free to peruse every item (probably 500 or so). No wonder we're broke.

-Secret Smoker/Alarms and Controls - split 7"
-Coma Regalia LP
-Via Fondo - Efter, Utan Under 12"
-I Love Your Lifestyle 7"
-мятеж - Demo cassette
-∞ (aka Eight) - Emme Näe Elämää cassette
-Endamori/Big Machine - split
-мятеж/People's Temple Project - split

The first Zegema Beach Records mini-fest was a success. Here the OMSB post link with videos and whatnot. There's also some pics I should have posted...voila!
OLD SOUL made a trip to Canada primarily at the behest of Dave Norman, who is absolutely obsessed with the band. They stayed at ZBR headquarters and play two incredible shows, the first being at Stressfest in Toronto where the entire set is posted in two parts (part 1-Emerald and part 2-Tome/Wick). Linked here is the ZBR-mini-fest review coupled with tons of videos, including all 5 songs the band played, as per requested by Dave:
-Perfectly Fucked (love lost but not forgotten cover)
We've also posted the OLD SOUL Zegema Beach Records bundle here with the two amazing split 12"s (Nic and Lentic Waters) released this year alongside Natures Arms Encircle All 12".
SORE EYELIDS' new 12"EP 'For Now' has two tracks streaming for now (ha) on the ZBR bandcamp page here and the orders will ship so fans should get them in time for the December 16th release date. Amazing, amazing twinkly punk/shoegaze. We've also got 3 bundles of the new EP with the Trachimbrod white/silkscreened 12"!
SORE EYELIDS - For Now EP
500 copies (200 black, 200 red,100 clear) 12" vinyl, insert.
For fans of: Trachimbrod, Coldplay, Animal Faces and Suis La Lune.
From dreamy to technical in a heartbeat, Sweden's SORE EYELIDS take twinkly shoegaze to a new level. This is a lengthy EP clocking in at 26 minutes and features members of Suis La Lune and Trachimbrod. ZBR is humbled that we were chosen to release this very, very surreal and beautiful album, as well as cover art.
Released December 16th, 2014 on:
Zegema Beach Records
Through Love Records
CONGRATULATIONS' cassette release show with Nous Etions, Terry Green and Jimmy & The Jerks will be posted next week. The Congratulations tape was released on ZBR and Skeletal Lightning is in stock here! Listen here.
NOUS ÉTIONS was reviewed by (((((OPENmind/SATURATEDbrain))))) here and the band's debut 12" 'La Manière Noire' is now in stock here. Listen here. When the Congratulations show review goes up, so will 4 amazing Nous Étions videos!
Speaking of top 10 lists, CASSLIS' Quitting made Kevin Duquette of Topshelf Records' top 10 of 2014. Quoted as "ignorantly loud". Check the list here (it's about halfway down).
The new zampler has actually been titled for almost 6 months, since one of our visits to Dave's brother's apartment where the title incited much laughter. Adam from the Guelph, Ontario post-metal band Teleportoise will be taking on illustrative duties for Zampler #4 - Flip Six Three Hole. Included will be a whack of ZBR bands, some of whom will be providing unreleased material.
