Guys! Girls!! Non-Pledgers!!! The Boom still needs your help. If you want full access to the archive of new album demos, videos and updates on PledgeMusic, you simply need to come and invest at least £5 into the fund (for which you’ll get all the updates, demos and the advance mixtape in advance of the album). #operationboombox
Today, after public demand, we’re releasing to the Pledgers the demo of ‘Drop The Bass (And Pick It Up) from our home sessions, which is the same arrangement we’ve been playing live. We recorded the studio version of the track yesterday at Vale Studios and took the song in a more hip-hop / jungle direction in terms of drum loops so it’s going to be really interesting for you guys to hear this version in advance of the album.
Yesterday we recorded the lion’s share of our new reggae summer jam ‘Train Leaves Tomorrow’. I thought I’d document its creation especially for the Pledgers. Not only are you treated to videos of the song’s drums, bass, guitars and vocals, you’re also treated to the comedy stylings of one Neil “Madfish” McMinn, for no added charge. Thanks for watching and please remember to comment! #operationboombox#theboomneedsyou
Hello guys. Today is release day for the Xtra Mile Recordings compilation Smokin’ featuring tons of amazing bands including Against Me!, Mongol Horde, The Karma Party and more. In what is clearly another outlandish, but stylish, maneuver on Xtra Mile Recordings’ part, the fifth in the Xtra Mile High Club digital compilation series is a) 42 tracks long b) features almost every XMR artist and c) splits the comp between XMR artists and unsigned musicians and bands chosen by each of the artists, and one chosen by the XMR Street Team.
