Hello friends of A Different Drum! I hope that you all enjoyed a great Christmas, and that you are looking forward to a fun, fulfilling new year for 2014! It seems that 2013 passed in a flash. A Different Drum continued to see some changes as the label’s focus turned entirely to limited edition VIP releases and the store continued to “downsize” to feature primarily boutique, independent synthpop releases that deserve a moment in the spotlight. In my own life, my work focus has necessarily turned to my full-time job as a music and lifestyles department manager in an entertainment retailer, which has been a lot of fun. I only have one day per week to focus on A Different Drum, which is why it continues to operate on a much smaller scale than it did in the past. All the same, I very much appreciated the support of the few, dedicated fans and friends, like you, who continue to purchase music from time and time, or who subscribe to the VIP program for every limited edition release. Thanks!
This update is brief, with one new release having arrived in the store during Christmas week:
ALAN LAURIS “Q3″ $12 — This new release from the Dutch synthpop act is full of bouncy, bubbly, catchy tunes and quirky personality. Check out the preview video and order the CD here:
NOTE: The pre-orders for the CD single by Isaac Junkie featuring Andy Bell still have not shipped, since I have not received the package from the label in Mexico yet. I’m guessing the slow-down is because of the usual holiday delays. I hope that they arrive soon so I can ship your pre-orders ASAP.

My daughter has just uploaded some new EBay auctions for you. There are several package deals with t-shirts and CD’s. Check them out here:
