TuneCore now has a pretty neat little player app. Listen to my instrumental release from last year and if you like any of the tunes you can buy them via the player’s link to iTunes (they’re also on Amazon MP3, and just about everywhere else, too).
I’m still working on an official Phreakbox page, but if you cannot wait for the CDs, they’re available now in CD-on-demand format from Kunaki.com. The disc features a full color insert and on-disc printing, are shrink-wrapped, and look pretty cool (the store site has a pretty cool 3-D rendering of the package). Make sure your CD player can play CD-R discs (as that appears to be the format kunaki uses, though I could be mistaken) before ordering, though, to avoid disappointment upon arrival. The CDs are $9.87 (the 16th number in the Fibonacci sequence) plus shipping.
Oh, and thanks for the listens on Lala.com. As of this afternoon, I’m the fourth-highest-played Electronic artist of the last seven days – Moby is #6. Woohoo!
The 13th-most-listened-to Electronic artist on Lala.com, that is. Since the new streaming music and download service, Lala.com, listed my new album before iTunes, I’ve been spending some time poking around the website. It turns out relatively few listens separate the 14th electronic artist from the 13th. All YOU have to do, gentle reader, is point your browser to my Lala.com page and click play. You can turn down the volume on your computer if you absolutely can’t stand my music, but the more plays I get, the higher I’ll be on the charts. Maybe I can even get higher than the Chemical Brothers (and maybe even Moby!), before the site gets more well-known and the popular artists start getting more plays.
Well, I thought it would take a few more weeks, but apparently three days is all it takes for Amazon MP3 and Lala to post your new album on their websites for listening (LaLa gives you the first listen for free) and purchase. iTunes, Rhapsody, and eMusic, it seems take a bit longer.
So, yeah: phreakbox v1.4: The Instrumentals is out today!!!!
Expect a full page for the album soon, including a link to purchase a physical CD copy of the product (once I approve it). But in the meantime if you want to get your (mostly) mellow electronic jazz downtempo loungecore chiptune worldbeat groove on, head over to the album on Amazon MP3 or Lala and give it a listen (and if you like it, download a track or two or the whole album). It’s very chill.
This is a track I did a little while back which has become very popular on the net (to date this year, it’s been downloaded over 16,000 times from my website). If you like, give it a listen and a download too. It may just give you the inspiration you need to do whatever it is you need to do today (heck, I mean, if a house can fly anything is pretty much possible). Jackie did the cover design for the single, incorporating one of her recent fiber art pieces… I’ve gotten a lot of good feedback on that.
And, as always, if you haven’t gotten your daily dose of Robot Love recently, you can download my first CD on iTunes, Rhapsody, Amazon MP3 and a number of other places around the net.
