More delightful news from Joyful Noise for fans of Marmoset and the multifarious work of Jorma Whittaker. He's got a new full-length in the works that you can order now. Details in press release below.
Today we are happy to announce the new limited edition album from Jorma Whittaker! In his first solo-release since his 2001 debut on Secretly Canadian, Jorma Whittaker dishes up the most accomplished work of his career: a dark & menacing soul record simply titled "Jorma".
The notorious singer-songwriter of the lo-fi-psyche group Marmoset is now accompanied by Indianapolis threesome Heavy Hometown. Led by producer Corey Barnes, the mordant, avant-sinister persona of Jorma's previous work is here in the ascendancy, fleshed out by a diverse array of instrumentation. Fuzzed-out guitars of former incarnations remain, but they are joined here by clarinet licks, creepy organs, a horn section, and lonely piano riffs.
The album is only released on vinyl, with 500 hand-numbered copies on "yellow halo" vinyl (aka yellow / black color in color), and all purchases include an instant MP3 download. We have only 250 copies available via mailorder, so order quick.
