Relapse, Coalesce, and indabamusic.com have teamed up to put together a contest we are really excited about.  Ed Rose has broken down the song “Wild Ox Moan” into several stem tracks ready for you to completely reinvent, and remix.  Here are the details on how to do this…

” Go HERE to the Coalesce remix page. If you’re not yet a member, click Signup in the top right corner of the page.  Provide your name, email and a password and you’ll soon be a member!  Once you’re a member, you can Ask to Join.  After you are accepted into the session, you can make comments, record, edit or upload a mix and more.  To start a mix using Indaba’s online recording software, click Record, Edit, Mix.  This will launch the Session Console. To access to the files for download, click on View All in the files section on the right.  In the actions bar next to each track, you can select  download.  And then you can go ahead and mix the tracks using your own music software. 

When you are all done, you should then upload your final track on the site itself by clicking on “upload files (see screenshot, click to enlarge)”

We’ve noticed that a lot of folks are uploading their mixes on their myspaces, and other new sharing media blogs.  That’s all good, but we would like to have all of the mixes in one place so we don’t have to hunt all over the net.  That is if you want to be in the drawing for the prizes.

Here is the list of prizes for the winning mixes.  Don’t write off those signed cd’s, Ingram drove over 3 hours getting them all signed :)

These were posted a month ago, but seeing Micah’s amazing interpretation of the Ox art got me reminded to post this again.  If you have an iphone, and want to sport some coalesce ox art by Don Clark, Please point your browser HERE, I uploaded a ton in a folder for you.

Don’t miss this amazing wallpaper by good friend Micah Smith.  You can also buy the hand silkscreened poster of this art here if you are so inclined.   As for the iphone wallpaper below, right click, save as, put on phone and live it.

 This one suprised us.  We were invited to record 4 songs at the BBC Maida Vale studios.  It was an amazing experience, and we got somd great takes.  Here is what was recorded

1. Through Sparrows I rest (unreleased oxep)
2. Wild Ox Moan (ox)
3. The Villain We Won’t Deny (ox)
4. The Purveyor of Novely and Nonsense (ox)

The first three have already aired and you can catch the show streaming right now by going HERE.  The last song will be airing the next show they do, and it’ll be posted at the same link.

Whoever made this happen for us, we can’t thank you enough, you gave us something seriously special to remember our time in this band by.

We wanted to turn your attention to a very cool article that one of our favorite music sites recently did for OX, pitchfork media.   We forgot how many times during a promotion cycle that you get the same questions.  No command V used here.

The Year of the OX, 2009.

As of today, the record is complete and has been submitted to Relapse Records for international distribution, (including Vinyl format).  We’ve entitled the record “Ox” and it will include 14 new songs totaling roughly 35 minutes.  Ed Rose at Blacklodge Studios recorded and mixed the record, and Mike Fossenkemper at Turtle Tone mastered it.  The guys at Invisible Creature are presently finishing the artwork and packaging.  We’re hoping for a release date sometime between April and May.  The exact date will be made public as soon as we have one.

We are currently planning tours for each US coast as well as SXSW and some over seas jaunts.  We also plan on attending a few festivals in an effort to play in areas that may not fit into our tour schedules.

In an effort to make room for new Ox merchandise, Blue Collar Distro has discounted almost all of the stock available at our online store.  Many of our recent clothing designs are on sale, some at prices lower than cost.  If you have any interest, check it out HERE.

For those of you who have contacted us online or at our shows during the past year and half with encouragement regarding your anticipation of the record, we apologize for how long it has taken us to put it all together.  We sincerely appreciate all the support you have given us and we’re trying to do as much coalesce as our schedules will allow.
