Be Still Please preorder alert!

sure, release date is nearly a month away (oct 10 to be exact) but as of today you can PRE-order the new Portastatic album Be Still Please. ok, i can hear you now, "why commit so far in advance? what if everything changes between now and then and i hate music? what if pitchfork gives it a 5.2 for not being freakfolk or mainstream rap?" well put those questions out of your mind and you won't be sorry, unless you really do hate music in a month, but what are the chances?

plus you get bonus items for getting on board now -- a whole album of demos, outtakes, and covers called "Some Small Things You Can't Defend" will be given to the first 50 preorders, and the first 25 will ALSO get a set of 4 coasters featuring photographs by Phil Morrison from the sessions for the album cover.

Merge is where you need to go to preorder the album! Thanks.

I hope this preorder extravaganza counts for the bundle with Who Loves the Sun. I hadn't gotten that yet, so I went for the bundle. I'd still love to the preorder booty, though.

Really looking forward to seeing you open for M Ward down here in Austin. I just moved from Chapel Hill and could use an injection of the Triangle feel. I'm really bummed about missing the Chunk date and the Troika show(s).

Thanks Mac! Love the extra goodies almost as much as I like giving my $$ to Merge!!

The album covers are great too! I'm heading to the OBX this weekend. Can't wait to be back in NC. It's too bad I won't have a car to drive from the OBX to Chapel Hill for your show with M. Ward and Lambchop. That sounds like a damn fine show.

Yeehoo. Money parted with. Looking forward to checking out the new jams.

Even better, maybe Pitchfork will give you an 8.1 like they bestowed on Justin Timberlake today. Justin Timberlake, for chrissakes. I don't know why I let this kind of thing annoy me, but am I the only one who yearns for the days when supposed indie rock types had standards about these kinds of things?

In any event, here's hoping I got in in time for the coasters. They will be the perfect complement to my Here's to Shutting Up beer cozy!

Can't wait to hear the record.
