I was going to title this post 'More Shapes' but that seemed too obvious. Instead I went for the obtuse route. Really paid off, I feel.
The guys in Shapes have very kindly allowed us to offer their old EP, 'Get Your Learn On', as a free MP3 download for a limited time. What this means is if you login to www.bsmrocks.com/friend you can now download a zip file containing the 6 MP3s from that release, along with 'You Butcher' (see below), all neatly wrapped up in a tidy little zip file. Glorious. Also on the website are free downloads from Pulled Apart By Horses, Wintermute, Shoes And Socks Off and loads more which you won't find anywhere else on the internet. Not even the seediest of illegal torrent sites. Or Spotify.
Man I love Spotify. Listened to the Paramore album today. Shut up, that doesn't make me any less of a man.
So today has been another in a long line of seriously intense days. Myself and Ivano spent 12 hours frantically stuffing promo CDs and mailorders into hundreds of envelopes, dashing back and forth from the Post Office, finalising our SXSW schedules, uploading new music, checking out bands, writing press releases and firing off emails left, right and centre. Right now I'm sitting here waiting for goFASTER to come and collect their new CDs before I can go to bed. I have a meeting at 9am tomorrow morning. It just never ends.
I've just had an email saying that The New York Times is now following me on Twitter. If one of the biggest newspapers in the whole world is, then you bloody well better be too!
