2011 Summer Break

As you’ve probably noticed, we’re on a bit of a hiatus here at 4080. All of us are off doing various summer-y things. We’ll be back in the next month or so, so definitely stay tuned. Until then, enjoy the sun.

Our New Look

As you can tell, we’re rocking a new look these days. Our goal with the redesign was to make 4080 look more ‘bloggy’ and less ‘magaziney.’ Let us know what you think: the good, the bad and the ugly. We’ll likely be tweaking the design over the next few days/weeks, so any suggestions would be appreciated.



As you can probably tell, we’re redesigning the site. It should be finished soon, and we hope you dig the new look when it is.

4080 Records’ word cloud

Thanks to Wordle, we got ourselves a little world cloud of 4080 Records.  In case you aren’t familiar, you pop a url into Wordle and it spits out this beautiful world cloud.  I’m not entirely sure if it just takes whatever is in the snippets off the main page or not, but it’s still a neat way to present the data.  And I guess I use the word “pretty” a little too often.



The Return

After nearly three weeks backpacking through Panama and Costa Rica (and living la pura vida) and a further week split between Charlotte, North Carolina and a beach house outside beautiful Charleston, South Carolina, I’ve returned home. Although we don’t normally use 4080 as a forum for personal news, I thought I’d at least explain my absence over the past month or so and promise to start posting again. Big ups to Angry for keeping up our post rate while I was away.


Day 18 – The First Blog

So the first blog on is up. It’s mine, so don’t expect much more than random rants about music and maybe some occasional commie outbursts of misdirected anger. All I can promise is that it will be the single greatest thing you’ve ever read:

Day 1

Welcome, all. is starting to finally take shape.  I thought it’d be interesting if we chronicle our journey to launching this online music paradise.

My partners and I have been working away at trying to get this idea off the ground for some years now (actually many years), but we’re finally taking the right step forward.  It’s a lot more challenging than it seems! Who know that starting an entire enterprise from scratch would actually take that much effort?

Luckily, it seems that the inital parts are pretty cheap.  Financially this mission is a scary prospect, but I’ve got some hope for the future.  So do your part and spread the word, help us out where you can.
