New Art, New Music: The Music Supervisor edition

LOTS OF THINGS IN THE WORKS for Optic Noise and we?re all, like, totally excited about it. We?ve begun a series of commissioned artwork for our CD comps, just because, and our first series for 24 and 25 features graphics by Dave Gulick of the band Derby.
We?ve lined up a host of artists, so more to come by way of eye candy.
We?ve also brought on Rob Wells, formerly of the band Eleventeen and current manager of San Francisco band Magic Bullets, to help us fill in some pitching gaps. He?s ramped up and rearing to go, and will make a suitably awesome addition to Optic Noise.
As of next year, in conjunction with The Rights Workshop here in San Francisco, we will be handling the catalogue of Carly Simon. Currently, we?re working on some updated covers of her hits, and thus will soon be able to offer both sync and master on this hit artist catalogue. More details and a more official announcement to come early next year.
And lastly, we have some truly great music coming your way. New Sex & Reverb, some great rock en Espanol, and more artists from the incredibly music-rich Portland .
We?ve put this round of comps as encoded super high quality MP3?s, making for easy database loading. So it?ll be either an enormous, wondrous success, or possibly utter disaster. We?ll see.
