Submission Procedure

Argali Records Netlabel EP/LP submission guidelines

I. Send initial email to argalirecordsnetlabel@nym.hush.com . Include project/band name, website/Bandcamp link, and descriptions of your project AND the EP/album you would like us to release. Also, please give us a rough idea of when you would like to release the EP/album. Normally we try to release non-compilation releases one to three months from the initial email, although sometimes this can be much sooner depending on if the quarterly compilation was already released or not. Do NOT directly attach music files to emails.
II. If we are able to release your album and have worked out a release date, please send your music files, album graphics, linear notes (if applicable) in a single .ZIP file through WeTransfer. Audio files need to be lossless codec files that conform to Bandcamp upload standards. The tracks need to be rendered in lossless format on your end, messages containing lossy (ie .mp3) or source files converted from .mp3 files will not be considered.
III. When sending in your project, please include your own cover graphic (1500x1500x .jpeg or better) and album description. We are no longer able to provide EP/album descriptions for submissions. Also, Argali Records Netlabel cannot master, remaster, or volume correct your tracks. Please only submit projects that are in a completed state that you are 100% satisfied with.
IV. We reserve the right to reject any submission for any reason. We are mainly an experimental ambient/music label, although we have accepted various types of noise on a case-by-case basis. NO HNW (there are way better labels for those types of albums). Please follow the submission guidelines to the best of your ability, as they have been designed to lessen the time between receiving an album submission and releasing it. We cannot guarantee a response if the guidelines are not followed.
V. Thank you again for your consideration. THIS ONE’S FOR YOU.
