"Gentleman Auction House put out one of the great records of 2008 with their debut full length, Alphabet Graveyard, and as if that wasn’t enough, they have also put together the excellent 6 song Christmas In Love EP for your Holiday enjoyment. If you like ["On The Rooftop"], you’ll definitely want to pick it up, the rest of it is just as good. The pefect stocking stuffer."

"The mode might be indie rock, but the mood is pure Christmas. This six-song pop romance buzzes with hope and loss, ends and beginnings, and all that good wintry stuff… These St. Louis-based newcomers have created a stellar Christmas classic..."
-Linda Laban, Rock 'n' Roll Examiner

RIYL: The Starlight Mints, Beck, The Polyphonic Spree, Modest Mouse, The Rentals, The New Pornographers


"They do have a typical pop thing going on but add their own touch to the din of swirling, swooning guitar licks, trippy hooks, and lyrical effervescence… The whole album has a smooth continuity with each tune being the piece of a well-constructed puzzle."
-Kent Manthie, Amplifier Magazine

"The Hibernauts play a strong, stripped-down style of indie rock that comes forth into pop glory...Their superior musicianship and arrangement skills here are why the band ultimately succeeds. Each of the tracks here could conceivably be a single."
-Neufutur Magazine

RIYL: White Rabbits, The Features, The Strokes, The Killers, The Deathray Davies


"This band has the aesthetic and the melodies, all wrapped up in a package of straight-up fun. Well, maybe 'fun' isn't the right word; this band has some darkness to their music, too. This one isn't long, but it's durable… Three hours later from now, [it] will still be stuck in your head."
- Music For Robots

"…Spring-loaded, danceable rhythms and howling vocals… Think the corrugated riffs promulgated by J. Robbins in his various bands, or the atmospheric, experimental angles found on ...And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead's recent albums. "
-Riverfront Times

RIYL: Thunderbirds Are Now!, Enon, We Versus The Shark, So Many Dynamos


"Cold Bear Scout is the solo project of a damaged man named Steven Colbert (pronounced "Coal-burt")... He asked me to make his EP... It was one of the most fun records I've made so far because there were absolutely no rules the entire time."
-Ryan Wasoba, Bird Cloud Recording

RIYL: Sunset Rubdown, Handsome Furs, Frog Eyes, Swan Lake
