Holy shit!

Love from LA Weekly!

This little shout-out starts off rough and slowly becomes more complimentary. Our pals the Parson Red Heads got a higher spot than us, congrats to them; the main thing is that we received a higher placement than these guys.

Hi, my name is Ross and this is my first ever blog post.

I've never done this before. I'm a bit nervous. Though I'm also excited at the prospect of being able to share my thoughts, opinions, and innermost feelings with you.

For my inaugural post, I've decided to throw up a photo of two lovely ladies who work at our label, Merge Records -- Lindsey "Kronic" Kronmiller and Christina "Xtina" Rentz. I stole this picture from the Merge Records blog.

These silly girls both wore our t-shirt to work today, and they didn't coordinate it beforehand!

I am crazy about Ebay!

For all the Ebay junkies out there, this is for you. Check out the Merge Records Auction and bid on items from the Broken West, Arcade FIre, etc. Please go have a look.

In other news, year-end accolades keep piling up HERE
and HERE

I suppose I should add that My Old Kentucky Blog and the Aquarium Drunkard are two of the best blogs out there period, and it has almost nothing to do with them liking our record.

Now, some pics, just for fun:

Welcome to the Broken West blog.

We were told on numerous occasions by major players that we needed a better website. So here you are, our band blog, to be updated frequently with words, pictures and music. Below are some photos from our 2007 tours. We will be in the studio in January of 2008 so we will post pictures from that once it gets underway. Ok enjoy.
