As previously mentioned way back when, there's a very good band called PORTUGAL THE MAN who are releasing a new album later this year. I think they've had a few record company issues I believe and have put a lot of their own work, maybe money into getting this album going
I think they're putting it out themselves, offering numerous packages for pre-order to suit whoever who wants to buy the album - and everyone who pre-orders the album can download from the 1st September
I like these ideas. Check out the whole scheme at the website, and listen at the Myspace:
I don't know where Batcat went, I'm sorry...
