New Relient K Album Trailer


Here it is. A trailer to promote the new Relient K album, Forget and Not Slow Down. Why a trailer? Because there's a trailer on the cover. Also because the trailer looks a bit like my own trailer, as shown below.

Enjoy.

My Head in a Jar and Vice-Versa

The Long Fall Back To Earth has been playing non-stop in the Music Department for the last two days.
It's a good album.
Jars of Clay seems to reinvent themselves with every album. That used to annoy me, but I'm sure they were more annoyed by people telling them to go back to the sound from their first album, so I guess everything is fair.
One thing that doesn't change is the fact that they make great music. Set against an 80's style backdrop, The Long Fall covers some familiar themes, but doesn't feel as weighty as their last album, Good Monsters. If you only buy twelve albums this year, The Long Fall Back To Earth would be a good addition to your collection.
And I don't want to ruin any surprises, but we have it on sale right now too.

Recent trip to Nashville.

I just got back to the store from Nashville after attening this years Gospel Music Association conference. I haven't been there since January in case you follow the blog and know that that was when I last posted. I've just been terribly lax in my blogging. Shame on me.

I learned a lot of interesting things on my trip. For instance, did you know that Brandon Heath's real name is Brandon Knell, but he uses his middle name (Heath) as his last name because no one can spell or pronounce his real last name correctly? Pretty cool.

I have a lot of new ideas about things like marketing, sales, and more. And even a renewed sense of purpose for this blog, if anyone is still following it. Thank you to those who are. Stay tuned.

New Releases - 1/20/09

Fiction Family - Fiction Family - Credential Records - EMICMG

FICTION FAMILY is Jon Foreman of Switchfoot and Sean Watkins of Nickel Creek.

Both artists have achieved immense success with their respective bands. Sean Watkins is the guitar player and founding member of the Grammy award-winning trio Nickel Creek. Watkins has a weekly residency at the
Largo in Los Angeles known as “The Watkins Family Hour,” which regularly features guests such as his sister and fellow Nickel Creek bandmate Sara Watkins, as well as Fiona Apple, John C. Reilly, Greg Leisz and Benmont Tench of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Nickel Creek has sold over 2 million records in the US. Jon Foreman is the guitarist and lead singer of the Grammy-nominated rock band Switchfoot, which has sold over 5 million records worldwide. Foreman has had considerable success as a solo artist as well with his 4 seasonal EPs and the Limbs and Branches compilation.

Both Watkins and Foreman being vocalists and multi-instrumentalists, took turns singing lead vocals and they both played several instruments on each song including guitar, bass, keyboards, percussion, baritone ukulele, piano, organ, mandolin, steel guitar, 12-string guitar and more. Nickel Creek fiddle player Sara Watkins is also featured on several songs. The album was recorded and written in parts over the span of three years with no real deadlines, while still touring with their respective bands.


In addition to all of this, Fiction Family recently performed at the Women's Literary Club right here in Grand Rapids. Sorry that you missed the show? Me too. But you'll be sorrier that you missed this album (if you don't buy it at Baker Book House, that is).

That's it for this week. Just the one release, but what a great one!
