Free Track #1

Here’s track 3 from Thanks To Science, We’ve Got Love, called Come On:

New Album, Free Music

Hi everyone! Planning is in the works for an official CD release for “Thanks To Science, We’ve Got Love” in the autumn hopefully but decided that we would make the music available for download right away.

Why give away music? Just because everybody else is doing it? Well, I guess that’s one (pretty weak) reason. However, it makes sense also because Internet filesharing has become so prevalent that eventually the music will get out there anyway. Since we’re sending out pre-release copies to press, labels & radio it’s bound to get leaked at one point or another. And we’re hoping that if you get a free copy (in whatever form) and you like it, you’re going to want to support the project even more and maybe buy it.

So that’s the rationale. If you do like it and want to buy a copy – please do. Check the website for information on how to do that. It won’t be totally ready for purchasing for a few weeks, though (except for CDBaby.com, which is already selling it). I’ll let you know when that option becomes available.

I’ll be posting a full new song in 256kbps MP3 format every 2-3 weeks from the upcoming “Thanks To Science, We’ve Got Love”. I’ll also be cross-posting to CBC Radio3 (http://radio3.cbc.ca) which will make it available in streaming format. When the tunes are up and ready, I’ll post in on the website and send out a bulletin with a direct link to the song.

I’m also toying with the idea of doing this for the previous album, “Arousal Disasters”, as well. I remixed and remastered this thing a while back (and it sparkles) but it now seems dumb to just hang onto it.

Anyway, thanks as always for your support,
Jonathan

Your Mail

Dear Jonathan,

You’ve announced a brand new CD will be made available in the autumn. I’m curious: your website is frightfully outpubDated and it looks like you’re still hawking Arousal Disasters. Do you need help?

Sincerely,
A Web Fan


Dear AWF,

Yes, I’m aware that the site is still themed for AD. It takes a lot of time and effort to change these things so I enlisted the help of Wondershop.ca and applied for financial assistance from VideoFACT in the form of PromoFACT.

The good people at VideoFACT decided that the site was just darned good enough and didn’t need to be changed and hence, declined assistance funding.

While we appreciate the vote of confidence, we respectfully disagree and intend to continue applying in the hopes that they’ll take us seriously.

Yours,
Jonathan & Wondershop.ca

This is a NXNE event so it’s free with a wristband, $6 otherwise.

2 Sets: 8pm & 10pm. Also on the bill Anhai (a throat singer).

Album Off To The Plant

Yes, it’s true: “Thanks To Science, We’ve Got Love” is being sent to the manufacturing plant tomorrow. 13 songs of unbridled whatever including a cover of the song “I Will Wait For You”.

The album should be available on CDBaby.com, Maplemusic.com and probably iTunes, Amazon.com, etc. More details when it’s actually available. Meanwhile, feast your eyes on the cover:
