Ever experimental in the ways an artist can work with her audience to both make a living and give them something special, geek-songstress Marian Call is selling a new bootleg CD to celebrate her second full-length live-streaming concert at WholeWheatRadio.org . 15 tracks in various stages of polish; some from live performances, some early versions of familiar songs, and some proto-versions of songs from her CD-in-progress “Something Fierce.”
But you’ve only got half a day or so to buy it.
The audio is not perfectly mixed and mastered; the songs are mostly live bootlegs. The CD label will be nicely handwritten and autographed by me, with your name on it as you please, and the track list & credits will be printed on the printer here at WWR. If you want a lipstick smooch on it, please specify when you order. This is homebaked music — as in, burned on my laptop. This is INDIE MUSIC IN ACTION. The CD’s come with Marian’s homeburn guarantee — if the disc doesn’t work, I’ll make and ship you a new one from home, cuz I actually care about you since you’re ordering something weird like this.
For SerenityStuff fans who remember the Sing a Song of Saffron contest, her second entry, “Never Did Catch Her Name,” is included. Check her blog for a track list and more details.
Head to WholeWheatRadio’s Marian Call page and scroll to the bottom. The CDs are $12 plus shipping, and will only be available from 8pm tonight till 10 a.m. tomorrow (Alaska time; that’s 9 pm to 11 am PST or midnight to 2 pm EST). (By the way, I love that WWR’s page includes a running tally of how many CDs she’s sold. Go Marian, go!)
This is an excellent way to support a truly talented and witty musician, and indie music in general. Go check out the live concert tonight, if you need more (free!) encouragement to support Marian.
