This Friday, February 14th (also known as Valentine’s Day), we are releasing a digital EP called Maximum Love Vol. 1: A Golden Love Affair. 7 love songs by Iowa music couples recorded exclusively for this release. You can pre-order it starting right now. You’ll even get it right now. So that’s basically like it’s already released. Technicalities. It is $5 and you get two download codes, one for you and one for your lover or secret crush. Read all the details (including the superstar tracklist) and order your copy by clicking right here.
There’s other news, too! We’ve got a new artist joining our ranks on April Fools’ Day! The USA’s Premier Power Pop Brats TWINS will release their new LP Tomboys on Parade on Maximum Ames Records (that’s us) on April 1st, 2014. You can pre-order starting next week, on Tuesday, February 18th. Pre-orders come with a free “Tomboys” pennant (yes, literally a pennant) and two buttons. Tune in next week to learn more and order your copy! For now check out the band here and tune in to Iowa Public Radio to hear them perform live on Java Blend on March 8th (that’s when it airs, but you can also see them record the show live in Iowa City on February 14th – details here).
Last little thing before we say goodbye: Check out this great review of Gloom Balloon’s debut LP on The Firenote. They gave it 4/5 Headphones. That means you should probably get in the groove and snag a copy!
