It took a few months of rumor and speculation, but today my favorite local band The Globes finally announced that they've signed with Barsuk Records. Barsuk will release the band's first full-length LP in the spring of 2011. Says the label:

Barsuk Records is honored to welcome Spokane, Washington's The Globes to the family... They formed in their teenage years (recently - the youngest member is 21), spending afternoons in their sleepy city collaboratively dissecting and interpreting the fundamentals of songwriting while forging together their own musical inspirations. Now only a few years later they are proving themselves as an earnest musical force.
Congratulations to both the band and the label!

Right now, the Globes are furiously touring in support of their Sinter Songs EP, opening for Minus the Bear, Maps & Atlases, and Mt St Helens Vietnam Band.
