Colin Clary’s ‘Twee Blues’ to be released on May 13th

Friday, April 11th, 2014

A few months ago, we divulged that we preparing to call it a day, and that we were working on our last releases. Now, we are very excited to announce the official release date for the first of our last three last albums:

Colin Clary’s Twee Blues Vol.1 will be released on May 13th!

I’m sure Colin needs no introduction here, he has been involved in so many great music projects over the years that it would be difficult not to be familiar with his work.

Twee Blues Vol.1 (aka An awesome weekend and a Sunday morning with Brad and Brad and Gary and Bill) is his third solo LP and the first solo release since the long sold-out EP Every little thing counts, that we put out a couple of years ago.

Back in the early stages of the album production, I remember Colin telling me he wanted to make an album that he would love to listen to as a fan; and he was set out go and make the best record he’d ever made. I’m lucky to have had it playing almost continuously for a couple of months now, and as a huge fan myself, I can say it worked – Twee Blues is as affable as it is addictive.

You can hear Colin talking about the album in more detail in the video below, get a little taste for the songs here and here, and pre-order it at our releases page.

Kickstarter goal hit!

Saturday, November 23rd, 2013

Thanks to all of you awesome people out there, we hit our kickstarter goal earlier this evening.

We are so happy right now (I’m even doing a little dance as I write this) – very excited to start working on the bonus EPs and incredibly proud to know that our final releases will be these three great records.

For all of you involved in making this happen – Thank you so much for your support, both over the years and over the past few weeks!

The bonus CDs and other incentives offered at the moment are kickstarter exclusives and will not be available to order at any other time. They will also be the last 3″ CDs we’ll produce, so if you’d like to own any of them, get them while you can.

There are still a lot of fun times ahead. We’ll keep you posted!
