MARMOSET reaches the treetops, releases new CD/LP, uses opposable thumbs to create podcast

Now that the first new Marmoset recordings in over 5 years are conveniently available in a tangible format entitled ‘Florist Fired’, you’re probably wishing to know more about this band who’s compact disc or long player you now hold in your hands. Lucky for you, we caught up with the band in Indy a couple weeks back and learned about jailbreaks, Rush, and walking the streets. Somewhere in between the guys provide a Cliff Notes version of their existence and commentary on their future classics.

To hear Marmoset along with other Secretly Canadian artists, you can tune into our podcast from the following links:

MARMOSET’s Florist Fired CD/LP now available for pre-order

Coming on the heels of Secretly Canadian’s 100th release and 11-year anniversary, it’s fitting that one of the label’s first bands is back. This is the perfect opportunity for those who have long treasured the Indianapolis trio (and elevated them to cult status), as well as those fortunate to be hearing them for the first time, to now hold hands and exchange the knowing glance that they’re hearing something that matters.

MARMOSET re-emerges with Florist Fired

Five years is a long time. Five years is an excruciatingly long time for a band like Marmoset, who reside in a city referred to – often derisively – as Naptown. “Florist Fired” (out July 24) is the band’s first release of new recordings since 2002’s “Mishawaka” EP. One of Secretly Canadian’s first bands is undeniably back, somehow managing to bottle into one album all of the idiosyncrasies and pathos that have, to date, made them the critically-acclaimed band we all love. Merging the Swell Maps-inspired tumultuous clamor of their debut EP “hiddenforbidden”, the addictive two-minute anthems on “Today It’s You”, and the epic (for Marmoset at least) joyful dirges from “Record in Red”, Florist Fired has it all.

For a taste of what “Florist Fired” has to offer, put your headphones on and dial in to the hazy, whimsical tune “Missing Man” available here as a free MP3.

If up to this point you’ve been the one looking from the outside in, now is the time to delve into the madness, tension, and ecstasy that is Marmoset. To help introduce you, Secretly Canadian and the band themselves have compiled an erstwhile selection from their discography that will be available for a limited time as a free download. Be good to yourself and take this opportunity when the golden cloak is removed, exposing the bejeweled canticles. It’s like a 10-year history lesson packed nicely in a little over 20 minutes.
