Hello once again from A Different Drum!  This is only a brief update to let you know of a couple new arrivals in the store.

I also wanted to mention that one of the CD’s listed in last week’s update sold out immediately– the tour CD by Mirrors.  Thus, if you are looking for it on A Different Drum’s homepage, it is gone.  Also, a couple of you may receive refunds if you ordered but not quite in time.   I’m still catching up on orders, but I’ll keep everybody posted.

NEW ARRIVALS:

The Echoing Green “In Scarlet and Vile” $14 — Yes! After many years of writing and recording, the new album is finally in stock!  It will take a few days to ship all of the pre-orders, so please be patient.  If you did not pre-order, then you can certainly order the CD now, which is sure to be one of the stand-out albums of 2011!   You can order the CD here :

Huminoida “Whiter Album” $18 — This import from Finland is the new album featuring vocals by Kimmo, the ex-vocalist from Neuroactive (think of the Transients and Fiber-Optic Rhythm albums).   It has a nice blend of downtempo and uptempo synthpop tracks which are sometimes minimal, and sometimes more complex.  It reminds me of some classic John Foxx stuff, with a modern edge.   You can order the CD here :

I added a track from each of the above albums for you to check out on the Radio Player here :
