Greetings one and all,

Again, my apologies for the silence.  But you know that when I do say something, it’s worth it.

I’ve included the option to get a digital copy of the album direct from Bandcamp when you purchase the CD.  When you purchase it – either in the flesh or via the Internet æther – you will get instructions, including the code, on how to redeem it.  Obtaining it from Bandcamp allows you the option to choose pretty much any format you want such as FLAC, Apple Lossless and OggVorbis.

(Those who have purchased them from me before have already received their instructions.)

This free download is only available in conjunction with the CD purchase.

Thank you and hope to talk soon …

All the best, DP

Greetings one and all,

My apologies for not updating frequently.  On any given day, my life – personal, creative and otherwise – is not that interesting to report and I believe in reporting on things that are worth reporting.  There are a few things I would like to address.

You can connect with the project through Facebook and Twitter.

There’s also a basic artist page set up in the following sites: Discogs, iLike, Last.fm, MySpace, PureVolume, ReverbNation.

There is a channel on YouTube where any future videos will be posted as well as high quality versions of the complete TSM discography thus far.

And of course you can purchase music at many of the major digital music sites and Bandcamp.

I still have plenty of physical CDs of The Singles Volume 1 and look here for purchase information.

Thus I raise a glass for the conclusion of 2011 and the arrival of 2012.

All the best, DP

Greetings one and all,

Let’s talk about the discography for a bit.

Regarding the singles, they currently the only music available for purchase. In addition, there’s a compilation of the singles related during the first five years of the project. Thus those singles will be out of circulation. (The more recent ones will become OOP later this year and early next year). Those can be found anywhere TuneCore distributes such as iTunes (worldwide), Amazon, eMusic, Rhapsody, Napster, Spotify and others. There’s also the physical option and the Bandcamp option as mentioned in the last post.

The EPs (The Romantic Dysthymia and The Rose of Al Basrah) and LP (Alpha) can be found exclusively at the Internet Archive. A somewhat low-quality version (160kbps MP3) is under the Creative Commons license for the purpose of distributing out to other people only as all other rights should be reserved to its copyright owner. In the future, I would like to make a high quality digital (and perhaps physical as well) version with proper artwork and presentation. The covers you see are merely placeholders but will serve as part of the package design. When that high quality option is available, you will know about it.

And because gadgets can be cool =]:


That’s all for now.  Hope to talk soon …

All the best, DP

Greetings one and all,

It is better to give than to receive =]

A physical version (CD) of The Singles Volume 1 – a compilation of all the digitally released singles during the project’s first five years – is now available on request. If you are able to obtain it in my presence, it’s $10. Otherwise add $5 for domestic and $7 for international shipping. Payments can be made through PayPal to thespanglemaker @djproject.cc.

It is also still available digitally. It is available at the digital music stores associated with TuneCore (iTunes, Amazon, Napster, Rhapsody, Spotify, etc.). There is also the option to obtain it through Bandcamp but it’s for the full album only (no individual track downloads).

I hope to make this a better home for the project by bringing together all the various pages and connections made over the years as well as forging some new ones. Can’t say what the future will hold but something should happen …

All the best, DP
