We regret to inform you that there was a mixup with the CD packaging and the sticker placed on the front. The CD was stickered with the LP sticker claiming there was a 'download card with bonus tracks', the download card was mistakenly not included inside the CD package. So, here it is for your downloadable pleasure. Sorry for the mass confusion and inconvenience. We truly appreciate your support and understanding!
Last year our friends at Valve, the creators of some of the best videogames in the world, called us. They said that diehard Portal fans had been clamoring for a compilation of the music from the Portal games. Well, as fate would have it, we are gamers too! Voila! A 4-disc set of more Portal music than you will find anywhere and a nifty, top secret bonus too! This is beyond a stocking stuffer, the Portal 2: Songs to Test By soundtrack is a gamer/music fans dream! Play on, we say!!!!!!
See what the folks at Pitchfork are saying about the upcoming ISIS compilation, "Temporal" (out next Tuesday, Nov 6th!)
Tomahawk in New Orleans
Planning on going to New Orleans to be one of the first to check out the return of Tomahawk at the VooDoo Music Experience festival on October 28th? We just found out the band will be going on at 5pm on the Le Carnival stage. A little earlier than expected due to curfew. Don't miss it, it's going to be fun!
Hooray for Hollywood!
We wanted to let you know, that Mike Patton just wrapped up his score for the much buzzed about film, The Place Beyond the Pines. This is the new film by acclaimed director Derek Cianfrance (Blue Valentine), who chose Patton to provide the music.
The film stars Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper, Eva Mendes and Rose Byrne. It got rave reviews at the recent Toronto International Film Festival and is slated for a 2013 release.
The Place Beyond the Pines is the multi-generational story of a motorcycle stunt rider (Gosling), who considers committing a crime in order to provide for his newborn child, an act that puts him on a collision course with a cop-turned-politician (Cooper).
See you at the movies!
