Oh yes, here it is. I am pleased to announce what is the (semi-)finalized list of Stumparumper releases for 2009. The details of the releases for the second half of the year are certainly subject to change, but for now, it’ll give you a good idea of where we’re headed and what’s in store.
STUMP-02: MC NUGGET – Bisquick square one-sided 8″. Edition of 20, clear vinyl with hand painted flip side and washable covers.
STUMP-03: BANNED BOOKS/BOT FLIES split 7″. Edition of 50, clear vinyl, with full-color posters.
STUMP-04: OJESPA JAZZ PROJECT/ORANGE CLAUDE split 12″. Have you ever heard of two jazz piano trios splitting a 12″ record? No, you haven’t. It’s going to be fantastic. Edition of 25, co-release with Bridge & Tunnel records.
STUMP-05: GREENLIGHT MOTIONLESS hexagonal 8″. You like Mount Eerie? The Fiery Furnaces? Childrens’ stories? It’s all of those things combined, except better. Edition of 20, clear vinyl.
STUMP-06: PATRICK DESMOND KELLEY – Robot Sonata 10″. Stumparumper’s first “classical” music release. This is a piece (in 10 sections) that I composed for two pianos and string bass – it tells the story of the robots’ takeover of the human race. Edition of 25, clear vinyl.
Take a deep breath, and step back. Now start saving your money. Pretty good, huh? In our first six releases, we cover the following genres: garage(-indie), rap, awesome-indie, jazz, fairytale-folk, and classical, in that order. Find me another label who does that. LONG LIVE THE STUMP!!!!
