Dear Friends & Fundamentalists,
I’m writing to tell you that Fundamental Forces has quietly released our debut recording, entitled “Blue”, over the summer. By “quietly” I mean a bunch of CDs showed up at my door in July & I’ve been haphazardly selling them at shows and sending them out to distributors.
Otherwise, I haven’t really told anyone. In fact, I’ve just now updated my website with links to where you can buy a CD or download it from iTunes, Amazon, CdBaby and Bandcamp. We’ve been lucky in that we’ve gotten early radio play on KSER, KAOS, & KBCS; and we’ll be on KEXP in the near future. In fact, just for fun, a few days ago I used Shazam to identify one of our tunes on KBCS, and then clicked through to download our album to my phone from iTunes.
In addition, we’ve had a lot of success generating fans outside of Seattle with our Internet radio efforts. You can now hear Fundamental Forces on Spotify, Jango, Soundcloud, Rhapsody, LastFm, Xbox, & soon to be Pandora. In fact, I’ve been getting emails, CD purchases, and Facebook fans from all over. We seem to be especially big in Israel & Turkey – Toda & teşekkür ederim!
All in all, things are pretty cool in our camp these days! So come hang out & celebrate with us at one of our upcoming shows. The next one is Thursday night at Lucid, where we’ll be followed by Jason Goessl’s newest ensemble.
