Once again the spring season is upon us and we are doing some cleaning, growing and creating.
You may have noticed the NotRock website has continued to refine itself in hopes become a more streamlined interface, making navigability easier and more efficient. The catalog page has been reworked for the better and will become more in depth for each specific release as time goes on (one step at a time here people, sheesh). In addition to the catalog overhaul there is now a SHOWS page that will keep constant listing of booked shows for all active bands on the NotRock roster. It is updated frequently so be sure to check it multiples time a day. Also recently constructed is the BANDS page which serves as a directory for all NotRock bands/affiliates past and present, linking directly to each individual band's profile page subsequently steering the user toward whatever content they wish to find about said band. Give it a whirl. We paid top dollar for all this new design so check it out.
available in the digital format accompanied by a spanking new illustration by John T. Fisher. A very limited run on CD is being developed with some snazzy packaging (the likes of which only F.D.J. would dare attempt) and will include four bonus F.D.J. demos. Stay tuned for updates on that front.
NR-034 Courtney Stodden Age Sixteen: In Labored Lockstep.
In a brief overview of other active NotRock projects we'd like to update y'all on the following:
Insouciant moves forward with their forthcoming LP by COMPLETING tracking guitars! All major instrument tracking is now done leaving the band with the task of recording vocals. If all goes well that will wrap up in the month of May. Who knows, you may see this release this summer.
Please Exist also continues progress on their full length. Instrument tracking is done. A vigorous mixing session is underway and as soon as some vocals are laid down, the general public may actually get to hear it. Cross you fingers people. You are a little bit closer to having this record explode your stereo.
As you know Khantra's beloved Self-Titled album is getting a special 10th anniversary rerelease. The track assembly is complete and details are being worked out on the packaging presentation. It may be another treat to drop this summer.
Melissa & Paul released a 10" record entitled "LIVE HARD". If you don't have it already GET IT. We could go on ad nauseam as to why this record rules but just trust us and pick up a copy. Keep doing what you're doing M&P. We are proud to call you friends and thrilled you're making this music.
Well that's all the news fit to print this month. See you in May kiddies! (yes we realize that's a day away. sorry this months post was delayed)
P.S. Who would win in a fight Mr. Fantastic of Stretch Armstrong?
