New album coming up and a fantastic CD Sale!

There’s a new Postal Blue CD coming out soon, and this time it’s a full-length. It’s going to be released by Cloudberry Records’ sister label Plastilina around February 2009, in beautifully designed digipack, artwork by talented and trustworthy Krister Bladh who did the artwork for the recent Postal Blue single (on its way to selling out already).

I couldn’t be happier right now as the new CD has been receiving rave reviews, and I’m finally gaining some momentum regarding my songwriting and actual releases. I’m still a bit stressed over the whole process, as it’s been a while since I’ve written a batch of songs with the pressure of a release in sight.

Another piece of news is that pretty soon all of the Postal Blue catalogue will be available for purchase on the main digital download sellers.

Oh, and, last but not least, Humblebee Recordings is holding a huge sale, and you can get our Road to Happiness CD-EP for a mere $2 plus shipping. Yes, that’s right, $2. There’s a few copies left to go, and Kyle needs to clear space for new Humblebee releases. Click here to buy.

Blog Schmog

live postal blue actionOh no, another blog. Just what we needed. And from a wannabe tunesmith, to make it worse.

That’s right folks. I’ve finally caved in, and started a blog. The guy who’s spent years badmouthing every new internet trend, from friendster to myspace to orkut to blogs. I’m going to try and use this space as a direct line of communication with anyone who likes good pop music, especially those who like MY music (I know you’re out there). I’d also like to talk about other stuff that I’m interested in, if you allow me, like painting, literature, video games, guitars, recording etc.

Updates will be made frequently, meaning, as frequently as I can, though I won’t promise anything. I only promise there will some interesting and useful bits of information everytime I post, like what I ate for breakfast or my grocery shopping list.

I’m going to write about music mostly, so those who suffer from tunnel vision can just relax. No music reviews, though. Ok, maybe a review here and there, which I’m sure I will regret, since many people are probably going to be pissed off at what I’ll say, as it so often happens. I feel like Larry David sometimes. Or Basil Fawlty.

If you’re a musician, you’re especially going to like it here, because I like to talk about songwriting and recording a lot. Oh, and the always entertaining and amusing music business rants. They’re going to be frequent, yes.

Last but not least, for those who like my music, I’m planning to upload songs on an irregular basis. Like every so whenever the hell I want. I feel like doing it now, so here goes a previously unreleased song I did a while ago. It’s definitely going to be on my upcoming solo album, which is going to be released by someone I still haven’t met under a band name I have yet to chose. Feel free to chime in, and let me know how you feel about it. I’m accepting band name suggestions. If you have any questions about the recording or whatever, I’ll answer them here or in the next post.
