A Different Drum Update - December 20th, 2012

Filed under: Uncategorized — Todd @ 9:24 am

Hello friends of A Different Drum!   This will probably be my last update until after the holidays…so Merry Christmas!

There are a couple new releases in the store to wrap up 2012.  Again, with the focus on new bands and CD’s that are a bit harder to find, let’s check out the new arrivals…

Florence Foster Fan Club “Asymmetric” $18 — Imported from Brazil, this is the 2nd CD that A Different Drum has carried by Florence Foster Fan Club, a minimal synthpop act with a hypnotic, yet memorable sound.  I think you’ll like what you hear on the sample I’ve posted on the website.  You can hear them and order the CD here :

Legend “Fearless” $16 — Imported from Canada, you’ll quickly hear why there is a lot of buzz about this new darkwave, synthpop act.  Watch the video that I’ve linked on the website and see what you think.   You can order the CD here :

Remember, I’ve also got the new Eloquent CD in stock and available for order here :

A little update for the VIP Subscribers:

All of the VIP members in the USA have received their Inter-Connection “Life” CD’s already.  The overseas subscribers will received a package with 2 CD’s, including the Inter-Connection and also the new Munich Syndrome CD, which will begin shipped this weekend.   The planned “A Different Mix 8″ CD with Syrian remixes is going to be a bit late, since the band can’t master the CD until the holiday break, due to work schedules, but it will come out ASAP.  Also, the cool “What We’ve Done Lately” compilation featuring new tracks by several bands who have been released on A Different Drum’s label through the years…it is now in mastering and will also be coming out in January.  It features songs from B! Machine, Fantazja, Neuropa, Somegirl, Neuroactive, Rename, and more!   Also, Alien Skin is wrapping up a VIP CD release for us, and we’ve got a couple of new artists also lined up for early 2012 and an exclusive USA edition of an out-of-print album by the French act, Foretaste.   That let’s you know what is expected for the VIP’s.

Thanks for your support!
