Happy happy Casey Shea Day! Casey’s new album In Your Head is now officially available for download on iTunes, eMusic, Rhapsody, Spotify, and Amazon…and, of course, as a download, CD, and badass CLEAR VINYL at the Family Records Store.
As a special release day treat, Casey himself has written a great piece for The Vinyl District, excerpted below:
Now I had a lot of catching up to do, and it was amazing. After years of ipod playlists, skipping tracks on CDs, and only hearing things I thought I wanted to hear, I was forced to listen to a side of a record at a time. And then, when that was finished, I’d have to stand up, walk over to the player, and drop the needle on the other side. It’s a great and amazingly interactive experience. On top of that, there is the sound. No sample rates for your mind to fill in the gaps, just infinite sound waves – it is real music. The crackles and pops are an added bonus.
You can read the whole thing right here.
Enjoy, and let us know what you think!
PS - Casey & band will be playing a very special album release show this Saturday, 11/5 at Rockwood in NYC. Details here.
Welcome to The Family Rosi! Everyone should get this record now…you have 24 hours.
