+/- Announce New Album and Release Drum Tracks

Posted by: Jason Tate (12/12/13)
+/- will be releasing their new album, Jumping the Tracks, on February 4th, 2014 via Teenbeat Records. The band's drummer, Chris Deaner, will be publishing multi-track drum recordings for each song from the album to Blend, in Logic Pro and Ableton Live project formats.
"As a band we are big believers in finding new tools and resources to pull from for our music. Hopefully this project with Blend will be a catalyst for songwriters. Or maybe people will just use the samples and beats to create something great. Either way, Iím excited to see what happens. On a personal level Blend resonates with my nerdy techy side. Lately I have been increasingly into exploring all the disruptive opportunities that exist in the online music creation space. Iím particularly interested in leveraging the power of the browser to replace, remove, and invent music making tools. Blend is a great example of the possibilities here.

But really I love how strange this idea is! I love the Ďsurprise!í aspect of this project. I am excited to hear what people come up with for these beats, written to a song they cannot hear. Hopefully when the album is released and the melodies, chords, builds, pauses, etc are presented to them, their heads explode."

Holy fuck! Forgotten about these guys over the years! "Let's Build a Fire" was one of my favourite albums around 07/08.

Very, very, very intriguing concept here. Going to have to look into exactly what Blend is.
