The Sophtware Slump Deluxe Edition

Posted on August 23rd, by jason in home page news. No Comments

Just over 11 years after its original release, we are again celebrating The Sophtware Slump.  This time it’s as the expanded Deluxe Edition which has been released today.  The original album remains untouched in all its glory.  We’ve also taken the time to collect a lot of other sounds from the period and included them in the hope of giving a clearer picture of that moment in time.  Dig in to check out the original intro to “He’s Simple, He’s Dumb, He’s the Pilot” (called “Discarded Pilot Intro” here)  as well as the original demos for “Chartsengrafs,” “Beautiful Ground,” and “Hewlett’s Daughter.”  The Bsides are there as well along with an expanded version of the booklet with writings from Jason and Jim and some unseen photos from back in the day.  Scroll down to the bottom of this email to … Read More »

Resume

Posted on April 14th, by jason in home page news. No Comments

Our friends at 7e.p. in Japan have released a 3 volume benefit compilation titled Resume. It includes 45 tracks, most of them previously unreleased, from 43 artists from America, Canada, Australia, the UK, the Netherlands, and Japan. All proceeds from sales of the individual songs and the compilation itself will go to support victims of the recent Japanese earthquakes and tsunamis. Jason has contributed a brand new song called “You Can Do It” which is available on Resume’s second volume. You can read more about the project and see the full tracklisting HERE. You can buy Resume Volume 2 HERE. Buy ’em all, get some great indie music, and support a great cause. Each volume is a very cheap $6.99!
