After months, nay years, of talking about this record, it is in the final stages and due for release in two months.
We are previewing a track here.
I am handling all aspects of the release except promo to print/web and radio, which DIY aside, is still a huge (and, unfortunately, expensive) part of putting out a record. It’s all very exciting and very overwhelming. I still have a lot to do.
The one thing I am not doing is covering the manufacture, release and distribution of the vinyl LP. The marvelous 12XU (12xu.net) has stepped in to manage that format. Gerard’s involvement means a tremendous amount to me. He’s run amazing record labels releasing great records I’ve admired and enjoyed for years. (Homestead, Matador).
Though we are in this late stage, after putting everything I can into the process, and trying to avoid online fund-raising, I will be kicking off a Kickstarter campaign next week. 2012!
In the meantime, enjoy “& & &” .
