Hey Everyone!

Anyone else in the northeast enjoying our foot of snow "April Fool's Joke?" Oh... its not a joke if it actually snows? I guess that's why we aren't laughing then.

Well, at least we have the MOVITS! record to help get us through the day. I don't know how many of you have had a chance to listen to it yet, but I promise you that its more effective than a bump of cocaine in the afternoon to get you through the day. I mean... uhh... nevermind. Either way, pop it in and watch how much the fun level in your store rises immediately. Its that awesome.

Also, we are proud to announce the newest wave of technology from our friends at Barsuk. Have a look at the video below and start clearning some shelf space for the new hottness!

MOVITS! "Out Of My Head" [Apr 5]


Line
MOVITS!

Coming at you on Tuesday, April 5th is the new album by Stephen Colbert discovered band MOVITS!.  Do you remember this Swedish band that got the Colbert bump?  "MOVITS! is an explosive combination of genres: the quick-spitting lyrics of hip-hop, the crowd-moving thump of big-band style bass, and a deep-souled saxophone that carried the rhythm on a number of tunes in a way that most guitarists dream of doing.  Movits! is like an extra shot of espresso in your morning coffee, a dynamite alarm clock that awakens your nervous system with the soul-throbbing joy of a power-driven swing dance throwdown" (consequenceofsound.net).  Out Of My Head comes out on Slimstyle Records (ADA) and is sure to brighten any rainy spring days.  Give MOVITS! the indie bump! We promise that this will be more effective than an afternoon coffee if you’re looking for a pick-me-up. You can’t help but smile and bob your head the entire time its on. And you’ll probably be putting it in for repeat play as well. You will love this just as much as we do.

BARSUK RECORDS AND THE GLOBES DEBUT REVOLUTIONARY NEW MUSIC FORMAT




Barsuk Records and Barsuk recording artist The Globes are excited to announce the debut of Soundbites. The biggest breakthrough in audio technology since the birth of the MP3, Soundbites will change the way you consume music.

Working with ex-NASA audio engineers, Barsuk (the independent label known for supporting quality songwriting and unique creativity) and The Globes (who, based on their “swirling, angsty post-rock,” were named one of Alternative Press’ “Bands You Need To Know in 2011”) have created an alternative to poor quality digital files, expensive, heavy vinyl, and excessively shiny compact discs. It’s a lot to swallow, so we’ve put together a handy explanatory film clip.

Happy April Fools!
