We’re thrilled to share the news that next month our friends at Joyful Noise will release a vinyl box set celebrating the career of SC veterans Marmoset. September marks the 10-year anniversary of the band’s extraordinary second album Record In Red (which, according to Pitchfork, “ranks among the best albums released by Secretly Canadian”). In honor of the occasion Joyful Noise is reissuing all four of Marmoset’s full-length albums on vinyl, including SC releases Record in Red, Today It’s You and Florist Fired, along with 2009′s Tea Tornado.

The LPs will be released in a limited edition box set, packaged in a custom-built wooden box, elaborately screen-printed, hand-numbered, and limited to 100 copies. Officially released on September 13, the box set is now available for pre-order! The box set also includes an instant download of the band’s entire catalog, a 40 page booklet, and four digital EPs of outtakes from each album totally 24 unreleased bonus tracks.

MARMOSET Releases New Album, Tea Tornado, For Joyful Noise Recordings

This week, the trio of gentlemen known as MARMOSET released a new album for our good friends at Joyful Noise Recordings. The album, Tea Tornado, is described by the folks at Joyful Noise as an energetic set of songs that is “too strange to be punk, too free of pretension to be psychedelic or glam.” Read more about Tea Tornado and snatch youself a copy HERE.

MARMOSET’s Record In Red Now On LP

Our friends at Joyful Noise Recordings have released on vinyl for the very first time one of our favorite back catalog titles MARMOSET’s Record In Red.

More information can be found HERE.

Pitchfork had the following to say:
“2001′s 13-song, 33-minute exercise in Anglophilic indie Record in Red, quietly ranks among the best albums released by Secretly Canadian.”

Originally released in 2001 on CD by Secretly Canadian, this epic and eerily-addictive album is revered as a dark pop classic of the Midwest underground. Record in Red is an album that has become a touchstone for damaged pop acolytes wanting to ferret out of one another just how twisted their fellow music lover’s tastes are. It is Marmoset’s finest moment and is now being released on vinyl for the very first time (with free digital download). The music of Record in Red sounds like it comes from a short, golden moment when the Seventies bled into the Eighties and from that place where melody and tone collude to seduce a truth from the darkside of the Midwestern urban experience. It is a hazy and brutal reality that evokes the strangest of nostalgias. The vocals and melodies are delicate, restrained, strange and somehow dissociative.

The final effect is nothing short of a poignantly psychotropic Velvet Underground-esque journey on a seriously heavy dosage of painkillers. Bald, minimally-structured percussion and moody vocals blend by the masterful hand of songwriter Jorma Whittaker (whose songs & vision disproportionately dominate this second full-length by the Indianapolis trio), giving the impression of being underwater – literally or chemically. Witness Marmoset’s slow, syrupy, crackling sound as it builds relentlessly toward a final and impossible intensity that is known simply as Record in Red.

You can purchase the LP HERE.

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.
