Darkroom - Ahead Finitely

A reminder of why I started writing Silent Way in the first place - so I could use it to make music.

Here are some videos that my band Darkroom recently produced. You can see and hear Silent Way in action fairly prominently.

Special offer - Little Spacey for $5

As previously mentioned, Expert Sleepers has close ties with the band Darkroom.

We find ourselves with more inventory than we'd like of the last album, Some Of These Numbers Mean Something, so we're presenting this special offer: buy the CD (currently about $15 including shipping) and get Little Spacey for $5 (usual price $29).

So that gives you the plug-in at about 33% off, plus you have a CD which you can enjoy/give away/sell on eBay.

Here's exactly how it works:
* Buy the CD from Burning Shed, from this page.
* Send your name and email address, as used on your Burning Shed order, to littlespaceyoffer@expertsleepers.co.uk. Simply forwarding the order confirmation you get from Burning Shed should suffice.
* Once we've confirmed your details, we'll send you a coupon code. You then use this code when buying Little Spacey to get the discount.

Sending your coupon should typically happen on the same working day that we get your mail, but please bear in mind that we're in the UK (and so for example about 8 hours ahead of the west coast of the USA).

The discount on Little Spacey applies once per purchase of the CD. If you already own the CD, you need to buy it again to qualify for the offer. Give the spare to a friend, or something.

This offer may be withdrawn at any time, so take advantage of it now!

Special CD Offer

The band Darkroom is closely affiliated with Expert Sleepers, and they recently released a new album, "Some Of These Numbers Mean Something".

We're offering all Expert Sleepers users (past, present and near future) the opportunity to buy the CD at the massively discounted price of £4.99 (UK & EU)/£5.99 (rest of the world), including p&p. Those prices are UK pounds - the once-again strong dollar makes this particularly cheap for our USA-based customers.

Read more about the band and the album at the Darkroom site: www.darkroomtheband.net

If you'd like to pay full price for the album (which of course would be fantastic for all concerned), go here or buy from your download retailer of choice (e.g. iTunes).

To take advantage of this limited-time offer, send payment via PayPal to payments@expert-sleepers.co.uk, including enough information for us to validate you as an Expert Sleepers customer (i.e. your serial number, order number, or the email address you used when purchasing) and of course your mailing address.

UPDATE: This offer has expired.

Darkroom - Some of These Numbers Mean Something

My band, Darkroom, released our 8th album on Friday. As you might expect, Expert Sleepers plug-ins feature heavily in the mixes, particularly Augustus Loop.

You can order the CD from Burning Shed, or buy the download from most online retailers e.g. iTunes.

From the press release:

Darkroom's new album - Some Of These Numbers Mean Something - is their 8th to date, and marks the 10th anniversary of their first (Daylight) released by 3rd Stone in 1998.

The original brief for the new album was: guitar under a microscope. In places it's the heaviest Darkroom album yet, but also the most accessible, combining 70s space rock, 80s Sheffield electronica, 60s guitar instrumentals and 90s post rock.

Mixing classic synthesizer & guitar tones with contemporary post-production, this album combines improvisation with carefully crafted and layered arrangement, and rewards repeated listening.

From Santana & Tangerine Dream to Cocteau Twins & Tortoise: file under ambient stadium rock.
