Let me tell you a little something about Chris Hassen…this dude knows all! He’s our Production Manager and he rules at what he does. As much as Chris might not like this, we’ve adopted this motto: “When in doubt…ask Chris, he’ll probably know.” Here’s his story:
Before I started interning at Polyvinyl, the only band on the label I had really listened to was matt pond PA.
Sure, I knew about of Montreal, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, Braid, and others, but I had already played “Kc” (the opening track on Emblems) countless times before I ever set foot in the office.
And then, I come to find out that Polyvinyl didn’t even release Emblems!
Luckily, I’ve since grown much more familiar with the PV catalog and in even more exciting news — it now includes matt pond PA’s fifth record.
Released in stores this Tuesday, the limited edition 180-gram 2xLP is also available in our E-Store and features three bonus tracks not found on the original album.
I would like to take this opportunity to take over the tumblr and let you all know that today is Chris’ birthday!! Happy birthday Chris!! I couldn’t ask for a better friend, colleague, statesmen, and all around super awesome dude.
