Closet Organ - 5318008

The day you have all been waiting for has finally arrived: the release of our debut album! Thanks to everybody who backed the project and made it happen.

5318008 is available on digital download (£10), download + cassette tape (£12.50), or download and vinyl LP which will ship in November (£17). You can get all of this on Bandcamp. It will be up on Spotify soon, but due to a backlog this won’t be for another couple of weeks.

If you are going to be in Glasgow next Saturday (the 1st of October), we have an album launch party in the 13th Note with the fabulous Ex Wives – heading out after that somewhere or other. Fiver on the door.

We’re making an album!

Well, we did it.

Thanks to you lovely people, we smashed through our goal of £400, meaning that we are definitely recording a full length album, and releasing it on vinyl and cassette. On top of that, we also passed the £750 stretch goal, with a total of £776, which means that we will also be putting together an exclusive EP for those who backed the project.

The songs are (mostly) written, and we are heading off to a cottage in the middle of nowhere next week with bottles of Goldschlager and apple loops to bluff our way through the recording process.

Watch this space.

Stretch Goal! Back, and get an exclusive EP.

We’ve blasted through our crowdfunding target to get the new album recorded and out on limited vinyl release, which is awesome. If you’ve already got a pre-order in, thank you!

There are 16 days left to run in the pre-order, and even though we’ve hit our target, every order that comes in helps cover the studio hire costs, which are one of the biggest expenses. This ain’t no profit game.

As a result of that, we’ve decided to offer a ‘stretch goal’. What the hell is that, I hear you say? It means that if we hit £750, every backer will also get an exclusive digital EP of unreleased material – potentially including songs from the archives, alternative versions of new songs, and ‘live’ stuff.

Interested? We still have a bunch of cassettes left, unlimited digital pre-orders, and of course you can always make your mark on the world by naming the entire album…

Check it out at the Kickstarter page. In the meantime, we are hard at work in the studio finishing the tracks that will be on the album. Here’s a short clip:

Paul is Dead on Spotify

 

The single from our upcoming albumPaul is Dead – is now available to stream on Spotify, along with remixes from unexpected bowtie and Dewaud.

Check it out here, and if you like it, think about pre-ordering a copy of the album via Kickstarter. We’re over a third of the way to making it happen thanks to you fine folk.

Pre-Order Our New Album

Yesterday we launched a project on Kickstarter to help us fund the recording of a new album, tentatively titled ‘Pished & Fabulous’.

L1007095

The bunch of us have been making music together in different guises for years, yet we have never recorded a full-length album together. When we decided to rekindle Closet Organ, this was something we wanted to change. Being able to look back at something in years to come, and go ‘we did that’ is the aim.

Rather than just do a digital-only release that would be quickly forgotten, we wanted to do something a bit more interesting… so, we are. The idea is that there will be a bunch of handmade, limited edition cassette tapes of the release, and an even more limited edition short-run of 12″ vinyl LPs (about 15 total).

The cost of vinyl production – even in small runs – is so high that it would be impossible without getting some sort of idea of the interest up front. So, we’ve opted to go down the same route as other indie bands and raise the funds through pre-orders. We’re already at £81, which is almost a quarter of the way – which is pretty awesome.

If you’re interested in pre-ordering, naming some of the tracks/album, or just want to see wtf is going on, check the Kickstarter page out here. We know that plenty of you hate us deeply, so there’s even an option to kill the band for a donation of £4,000 or above.

Thanks!

Paul is Dead

After five years of releasing diddly-squat, we’ve gotten our act together and are releasing a single from what will be our very first full-lenth album, due to be completed later this year.

‘Paul is Dead’ is a tribute to the one and only Paul McCartney. Well, sort of. It’s actually testament to the fact that the real Paul McCartney died years ago, and was replaced by a lookalike. The evidence is all there. We’re onto you, McCartney.

Download it for free – along with two different remixes – over on BandCamp. It should be up on Spotify in the coming weeks.
