Hello, this is Todd at A Different Drum. It is time to send out a little update with a spotlight CD release for you. I just got in a new import CD from France which I think you might enjoy…
Happiness Project “9th Heaven” $18 — This polished synthpop act is happy to present their debut album, and you can watch a couple of their videos to check out their sound and then order the CD from here :
There are some other cool imports and independent releases that I’ll be bringing into the store before the end of the year. As you can tell, I’m bringing fewer titles into A Different Drum’s store, trying to focus on some of the releases that are otherwise harder to come by, or that might slip past the notice of synthpop fans. Since I have another full-time job which takes most of my time, my focus with this business has narrowed to the goal of helping the CD collectors to build a fun collection of physical CD releases that they can treasure, as I very much treasure my own CD collection. Those who have subscribed to the VIP program know that I’ve tried to keep the physical format alive with limited edition releases by new bands and old favorites that otherwise might not have seen the light of day on CD. I find those efforts manageable (as far as my time restraints go) and very rewarding, as both the collectors and the bands themselves have been grateful to hold a representation of their work in their hands.
If you’re interested in joining the VIP program as a subscriber, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. There are currently a few spots available.
In the meantime, I continue to list clearance CD’s and other products on EBay as a way to pass along some great deals to those who want them. Right now you can pick up the few remaining Midnight Resistance t-shirts which are all listed in my EBay store, as well as a nice 25-CD box of old label favorites. You can see my EBay auctions here :
Those auctions will continue in coming weeks with new offers and great deals.
Thanks for your support! Many of you have become long-time friends over the years, and it is a pleasure interacting with you as we share our love of music.
