Light In The Attic’s 2012 Wrap Up

It’s that time where we finally take a step back, knock down some cider, and look back at the year that’s about to pass us by. From where we’re standing, it’s been a far out 365 days here at Light In The Attic Records, and we’re very proud of all the tunes we’ve sent out into the universe in 2012. With all the year end lists in the air, it’s been a blast to see LITA releases getting love from the news stand, so we thought we’d share some highlights!
