4th May 11 (Wed) 1 comment

Groupees, an “innovative new flash sale platform featuring digital media content from exciting independent artists,” announced yesterday that it will be launching its next promotion featuring Detroit’s electronic rock mastermind Celldweller

Known worldwide for pioneering new sounds and methods for creating his tracks, Klayton (Celldweller) continues to generate music that resonates and relates to both fans and the entertainment industry worldwide.

The Celldweller 4-EP Bundle Groupee is slated to start Wednesday, May 4th at 9:00 am PST at http://bit.ly/celldwellr.

20% of all proceeds from the sale go directly to Red Cross to support US/Alabama Tornado Relief.

The campaign will run for 72 hours and is priced using Pay What You Want which allows fans to name their price with a minimum of $3 (products retail five times that). The Bundle packages together 4 EP’s, one of which has 4 never before released tracks:

  • Wish Upon A Blackstar Chapter 03 of 05 is the latest installment of the Celldweller sophomore album, featuring the tracks “The Lucky One” & “Tainted”
  • Cellout EP 01 featuring re-imagined versions of Celldweller songs as heard in the Celldweller live show. This EP debuted in iTunes as the #1 Electronic Album in 5 Countries, including the US as well as top #10 Electronic album in 12 countries.
  • Soundtrack For The Voices In My Head Vol. 02 (Chapter 01) featuring instrumental tracks used in Film/Tv/Video Games
  • Exclusive EP will feature a brand new, unreleased track from Soundtrack For The Voices In My Head Vol. 02 (Chapter 02)3 unreleased Remixes as well as a rare/limited release of Klayton’s remix of the track “Shapeshifter.”

The Celldweller 4-EP Bundle also includes a special bonus collection if the promotion’s goal of $10,000 raised is met:

All participants will receive an unreleased ‘Beta Cessions’ B-Side Demo along with the unreleased Remix of the track “The Lucky One”.  At the close of the campaign, the #1 top donor will receive an additional bonus Unreleased Demo that will be exclusively theirs until we officially release the track at a later date.

Who is Groupees?  Groupees, from Portland, Oregon, is a social media technology company. Their parent company, YAWMA, also operates a digital store and app for discovery and sharing of indie music and games through Facebook.

Help Japan earthquake victims!

11th Mar 11 (Fri) Leave a comment

If you have the means to help the victims of the Japanese earthquake and subsequent tsunami, please do so.  At this stage, donations of money is likely the best way to help those in need.  Make sure you are giving to a reputable charity.  In times of need, wolves come out. I’d recommend a well-known, global charity such as the Red Cross.

Related sidenote: The sludge metal band The Melvins played Australia & New Zealand and a serious earthquake hit.  They are now in Japan.  Please donate to the Red Cross and the Stop the Melvins from Bringing Earthquakes Fund.  This band must be stopped… before it’s too late.

~Dan

PS- just kidding about the dangers of the Melvins, obviously.  Long live King Buzzo & Co.  They are doing well after Quake 2 in about a month.  Our thoughts are with the victims’ families and those displaced in Australia, New Zealand and Japan in these disasters.

Wussy’s 2010 plans

15th Jan 10 (Fri) Leave a comment

From the Wussy camp’s website…

We are gearing up for a busy winter and spring so keep your ears peeled. Right now we’re planning spring tour dates and working on a new record. We’ll have a single (vinyl-only) on Shake It Records coming out this spring as part of their Dangerous Highway series, a tribute to Eddie Hinton. The A-Side is our take on the classic “Breakfast in Bed” made famous by Dusty Springfield. More news on that soon. The Drive By Truckers and Greg Dulli 45’s are out now (see shakeitrecords.com for more info).

In the meantime, we’re also working on a live album and a collection of Wussy remixes from other artists.

In other news, Wussy’s self-titled album was #10 on Christgau’s 2009 Dean’s List!

Cool!  I’m looking forward to any new recorded music and touring from this great band!
