Are you ready for this? I’m not sure if I am.
Volume 51 will be, by far, the longest volume of Ball of Wax Audio Quarterly to date. For the first time, I’ve decided to go download-only to enable the theme of Long Songs. And I do mean long; each track is from 10 to 30 minutes in length, and the full running time is about 7 hours, an expanse of expansive work from a broad swath of artists, from weirdo rockers like Freeway Park and Double or Muffin to experimental icons like Doug Haire and Bill Horist, and much, much, much, much more – even a couple songwriters, like me, who just wrote really long songs.
We’re celebrating the release on March 9th at Substation. Everyone in the door gets the usual Ball of Wax handmade packaging with liner notes and a handy-dandy download code. (For Bandcamp purchasers and subscribers, we will have the option of a custom- or randomly-selected CD-R of 70-80 minutes of music.)
