A few things to mention before the actual update.
My last email to this list was 13 days ago, so I feel as though I am keeping the traffic low, as I promised. There is a lot going on, so I want to send this as a separate email before the biweekly update. I hope that's OK.
1. I've been hard at work on a 4-CD tribute to Pete Namlook, consisting of 2 CDs of material from FAX alumni, and 2 CDs of material from fans. Profits will go to Namlook's family. The official site for this tribute is http://namlooktribute.tumblr.com/. On that site you can find a list of contributors and more info in an FAQ.
2. I have been appointed one of the admins of the Pete Namlook Facebook page, and I've been posting updates about the above project to that page as well. If you're a FAX/Namlook fan, and you're on Facebook, please "like" https://www.facebook.com/Namloook
(that is not a typo, there are in fact three o's because Namlook was already taken).
3. I started a label dedicated to Namlook called Carpe Sonum ("seize the sound") in order to release the tribute compilation and other works, including a number of FAX alumni. If you're on Facebook, please "like" us at https://www.facebook.com/CarpeSonum.
4. If you want to join the Carpe Sonum mailing list, which will be specific to the label, you can do so at http://eepurl.com/x1zG1.
5. The Irish label Psychonavigation is releasing a number of CDs from FAX alumni including Lorenzo Montanà, Charles Uzzell-Edwards, and Steve Stoll. We are fixing to do a large bulk order with them, if there is interest. This bulk order will be not just for the aforementioned CDs, but also for their other current releases such as Sense - The Dream, Off Land - Tidewater Pulse, Les Trois Psychologues - Daft Aurora, The Living Room (Orlando Voorn) - Armchair Education. So if we collect enough orders for these releases, you'll get a couple dollars off on each if we can swing this bulk order.
6. Finally, Carpe Sonum will be releasing a new Moss Garden (Lee Anthony Norris and Dimitar Dodovski) CD later this year, but for now we will have the final copies of their first release "Understanding Holy Ghosts" (https://www.ear-rational.com/detail.php?id=85863) for sale at the special price of $13.75. Not in stock yet, but coming from Lee himself, soon. Only 5 left at this point, and then they're gone.
Thanks, as always, for your support. If you have friends who are still buying CDs and LPs, please forward this email to them and let them know who we are. Oh, and we are on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/EAR.Rational.
