It's October 1st, and this time Volume 25 of our monthly digital singles series "Something To Do Music For Something To Do People" isn't as much of a surprise as usual since it was already premiered on The Dummy Room podcast last week, but hey, it's by The Travoltas. and that's a big deal. The Travoltas, from The Netherlands formed in 1990 and have toured all over the world. They have an extensive discography with 20 releases, and "Find You There" is their newest release, and it's killer. Legend has it that lead singer Perry Leenhouts is originally from the planet Pendletone, and one day mysteriously appeared on earth riding his surfboard across Waimea Bay, though we can't verify that 100% since we didn't see it with our own eyes. Regardless of what planet he's from, we certainly can verify that we're pleased as punch to be working with the Travoltas!
On September 1st 2018, we premiered our Something To Do Music For Something To Do People series of monthly digital singles. As promised, after volume 15 was released, all the songs were mastered and compiled as the "Something To Do Music For Something To Do People Phase One" album. It's an expansive, but not expensive powerhouse pop-punk potpourri that features all exclusive songs by 15 bands from 9 U.S. states and 4 countries. It includes The Putz (Indiana), Scutches (New York), The Suck (A bunch of East Coast States), The Lemonaids (Scotland). Covert Flops (Indiana), Parasite Diet (Tennessee), Eaten Back To Life (MIssouri), Parasites (Illinois), Vista Blue (Tennessee), Evil O'Brians (Germany), Dumberger (California), Knockin' Chucks (Texas), Neon Bone (Germany), The Sweethearts (Texas), and Massoneria Ramonica (Italy).
The vinyl LP version is available on three different colors of vinyl - Ketchup Red, Mustard Yellow and Lettuce Green, well, if lettuce was translucent, which it isn't, but we're calling it that to go with the food theme. It really looks more like an emerald, but please don't eat one of those by mistake. The LP version comes with a nice printed insert, a download code for the full album!

The Compact Disc version is a nifty Gatefold Digipak and has alternate artwork than the LP version. The Compact Disc version was made with minimal use of evil non-biodegradable plastic, and comes with a download code for the full album!

Since we're a bit into 2020 now, that means the 3rd anniversary of our release of the "Canadian Graffiti" LP by The Riptides from Canada is coming up soon. We're running low on all three 12" vinyl variants: Opaque White (200 copies pressed), Translucent Red (200 copies pressed), and Clear (100 copies pressed, because even though the Canadian flag doesn't have any clear on it, there's plenty of ice up there in Canada). We are gonna do a 2nd pressing after these last 1st pressing copies run out, but those will have different sleeve art. So, if you want to snag a 1st pressing LP with the cool cartoon sleeve drawn by Dan Parent (best known for his work for the Archie comics series) before they run out, I'd hop to it if I were you. Sounds like a good idea, eh?
