New free downloads from Crustacean Records

Postby charliedon'tsurf » Thu Sep 28, 2006 9:30 am

We just added three new mp3s to the Crustacean Records music page. They are from Ouija Radio's amazing new album Oh No...Yes!Yes! which comes out nationally on October 10th, but can be purchased right now at all the finest independent record stores in Wisconsin or from our catalog. The three new free downloads are in good company along with tracks from 26, SevenOneFive, Modern Machines, IfIHadAHiFi, Killdozer, The Soviettes, Awesome Snakes, American Death and others. All free mp3s are in a somewhat compressed format to encourage you to buy the real thing and hear it in its full fidelity mode whether you buy a CD/record or pay for it on iTunes or similar digital download distributor. Thanks for supporting Madion's most prolific and longest existing indie/punk label.

Skintones, Hazard County Girls + John Kruth

Postby charliedon'tsurf » Tue Nov 21, 2006 12:55 am

We got two new tracks off the new Skintones album, This is Science. We are happy they stuck with us for their third long playing record and we are very confident the new songs will leave you sufficiently rocked.

We also have a couple MP3s for download from the two newest members of the Crustacean Records family. The first of which is Hazard County Girlsfrom New Orleans, Louisiana. They proudly carry on the tradition of crushing southern swamp metal in the path of greats such as EyeHateGod, Nashville Pussy, Mastodon, Alabama Thunderpussy and so on. We are reissuing their second album Divine Armor, that was put out in May of 2006, but already needs another pressing and with distribution this time around.

The other artist we are overjoyed to begin working with is New York City multi-istrumentalist, author, poet and professor John Kruth. John has a stunning resume having collaborated in the past with Allen Ginsberg, Laurie Anderson, Elliot Sharp, Johnathan Segal and other members of Camper Van Beethoven, King Missle, Meat Puppets, Sam Shepard, John Corigliano as well as performing as a soloist at Carnegie Hall. His new album Eva Destruction is released worldwide on Crustacean Records on Tuesday December 12th. The album has been a work in progress began in 1995 and features studio contributions from Brian and Victor of the Violent Femmes, Dan from Die Kruezen, Jason Loveall of the Danglers, John Frankovic of Plasticland and many others.

We have two tracks from each of these new releases waiting for you to download at the Crustacean Records music page

The Isthmus is making available another Skintones track to be downloaded for free exclusively thru their site right here. FYI the entire Skintones catalog except their debut EP are now available thru iTunes and all other legal download/streaming sites on the net. Thanks for the Isthmus and Rick's Cafe for the great Skintones press this week.

I notice that the Skintones albums are not available at eMusic.com, though other Crustacean artists are available on that site. Will the Skintones be made available there?

All that is submitted via CD Baby who brokers all of our digital downloads. (As an aside I cannot recommend this company highly enough to anyone who releases an album!) It is out of our hands as to when they get releases submitted to specific digital distro companies.

I just went to the site and check out the status of the three Skintones releases available on-line. Never Get Better was submitted to eMusic back in May '06 so I would think that has to be live by now. The other two, This is Science and Devil Rock Scene Problem have not been submitted to eMusic as of yet. Should happen soon like in the next month or two. However all of it is up on iTunes which is overwhelmingly the biggest vendor out there.

Hi charlie...

Just wanted to say thanks for taking the time to look into the eMusic issue. Unfortunately your findings don't match eMusic's availability, as I verified that none of the Skintones albums are available, at least not by artist, album or related to Crustacean. I don't know if this means it's not live yet or they lost it, but I thought you should know as an FYI. Thanks again!

We just added four more free mp3s to the Crustacean Records music page. "Model Citizen" and "Last Call" off of Drunk Drivers Model Citizen and "Creeps Are Coming" and "Dead in the Parking Lot" from Corruption is King's debut album, The Karmic Debt. The mp3s are somewhat compressed to encourage people to purchase the real thing with even better fidelity whether you do so on CD or by legal commercial downloads.

Speaking of which more Crustacean stuff just went live on iTunes and other services. Specifially Droids Attack Fatal/Error and Drunk Drivers Model Citizen.

We just added a couple new free mp3s, "20% Gay" and "Cowboy Song", to the Crustacean Records Music Page. They are both off of the new Screamin' Cyn Cyn & the Pons album Screamin' Target Heart Rate. Thanks to everyone who packed the King Club Friday night for a really fun Madison CD release party.

By the weekend our new round of local consignments should be completed so our newest titles, Screamin' Cyn Cyn & The Pons Screamin' Target Heart Rate, Drunk Drivers Model Citizen and Corruption is King The Karmic Debt, should be available at the finest independent record stores in Madison (B Side, Ear Wax, Mad City, both Exclusive Companies and others). The new Corruption is King and Drunk Drivers album/songs are also available via legal commercial download/streaming sites and the new Screamin' Cyn Cyn & The Pons album should be up next month.

The Gusto

Postby charliedon'tsurf » Sun May 27, 2007 2:01 pm

It is official The Gusto from Madison, Wisconsin is the newest member of the Crustacean Records family. They formed in 2006 and have been playing top notch melodic punk ever since wearing proudly wearing their influences on their sleeve: NoFX, Stiff Little Fingers, Green Day, Toys That Kill and 80's skate rock. Crustacean management was already digging on bands the members had been in previously like Funrod and The Gammits MW so it is a natural fit. We will be releasing their debut full length album this Fall.

To hold the masses over in the here and now, we are now selling their 5 song EP in our web catalog for the low price of $5 postpaid. Culture and Shit was recorded in 2006 by Dec from Things Fall Apart the songs reveal their solid early song writing, advanced arrangments and vocal hooks. In addition if you want to listen before you buy we just added two Gusto mp3s, Lumberjack and Auburn, AL, to the Crustacean Records music page. Scroll down the page a ways as it is alphabetical by band and Gusto is preceeded by a "The".

MP3 of the Month!

Postby charliedon'tsurf » Thu Aug 16, 2007 9:50 am

We have decided to bring a classic Crustacean website feature back, our mp3 of the month. Every single month we will have an exclusive audio file to download for free from a Crustacean artist. It could be a live track, a never before heard studio outtake, something classic and out of print or a work in progress by one of our current acts.

For our first mp3 of the month we are giving you an exclusive live version of Things Fall Apart covering “Waiting Roomâ€Â
