Date added: 11/06/2013 Announcing....new LP from Jorma Whittaker (of Marmoset)
Today we are happy to announce the new limited edition album from Jorma Whittaker! In his first solo-release since his 2001 debut on Secretly Canadian, Jorma Whittaker dishes up the most accomplished work of his career: a dark & menacing soul record simply titled "Jorma".
The notorious singer-songwriter of the lo-fi-psyche group Marmoset is now accompanied by Indianapolis threesome Heavy Hometown. Led by producer Corey Barnes, the mordant, avant-sinister persona of Jorma's previous work is here in the ascendancy, fleshed out by a diverse array of instrumentation. Fuzzed-out guitars of former incarnations remain, but they are joined here by clarinet licks, creepy organs, a horn section, and lonely piano riffs.
The album is only released on vinyl, with 500 hand-numbered copies on "yellow halo" vinyl (aka yellow & black "A-side / B-side"), and all purchases include an instant MP3 download. We have only 250 copies available via mailorder, so order quick.
