Date added: 08/16/2011 Announcing... Marmoset Vinyl Box Set

The enigmatic band known as Marmoset have fostered a near-mythical cult status with their shambling, moody, and ethereal blend of indie pop. Now in their 16th year, Marmoset continue to be under-appreciated (yet critically acclaimed) heroes of lo-fi - seminal and central to an entire musical community whose tentacles have garnered national recognition and praise.

This September we will see the 10-year anniversary of their extraordinary second album Record In Red (which, according to Pitchfork, "ranks among the best albums released by Secretly Canadian"). In honor of the occasion Joyful Noise is reissuing all four of Marmoset's full-length albums on vinyl (including, for the first time ever on LP, 1999's Today It's You and 2009's Tea Tornado).

The LPs will be released in a limited edition box set, packaged in a custom-built wooden box, elaborately screen-printed, hand-numbered, and limited to 100 copies. Officially released on September 13, the box set is now available for pre-order!

Also included in this box set is...

 

  • an INSTANT download of the band's entire catalog
  •  

    • a 40 page mini-booklet containing an extended bio, interviews, anecdotes, and lyrics
    • FOUR digital EPs of outtakes from each album (totaling 24 unreleased bonus tracks).
