A Note from Erik
Welcome to the latest edition of The Passing Parade, the aperiodical newsletter from Think Tank Media. Previous readers will notice that the newsletter has a new look in this issue, and we've extended the facelift to our web site, www.thetank.com, also known as "The Tank". We also have a new release, Erik Norlander - The Galactic Collective. More on that below. And in celebration of the new release and the new look, we've reduced prices on just about every title in our web store. Single CDs from our back catalog are now $8.99, and double CDs and DVDs are $11.99. Imports are a bit more of course, but their prices have been lowered as well where possible. We are also pleased to announce our new relationship with ReverbNation who will be providing premium quality mp3 downloads of all our titles as well as FREE bonus tracks for you folks on our emailing list (more on that below, too). We have the complete Erik Norlander catalog available now on ReverbNation, and the Lana Lane and Rocket Scientists titles will be available soon. And our titles of course remain available on iTunes and other major digital download sites. Happy listening!

New Release! Erik Norlander - The Galactic Collective
|Erik Norlander in concert for The Bob Moog Foundation
On May 27, 2010, Erik will play a special concert at The Orange Peel in Asheville, NC in celebration of the Moog legacy as part of a fundraiser for The Bob Moog Foundation. Erik plans to play his new album, The Galactic Collective, in its entirety along with some other favorites. Erik will be joined by a gathering of prominent local Asheville musicians for the concert, and the ensemble will explore some new and innovative arrangements of Erik's songs along with his famous Wall of Doom analog modular Moog synthesizer which shall be making the cross country journey from California to North Carolina especially for this event. More special announcements for this event to come from The Bob Moog Foundation.
|New look at The Tank
Please stop by www.thetank.com to see our little remodeling project. In addition to the new navigation system and home page design, we've also started to upgrade the pages for each individual album with more content. To start, there's now a music player courtesy of our friends at ReverbNation that plays each song on the album in its entirety at 320 kbps quality -- for those counting, that's as good as it gets with the mp3 format. We've also added photos to the album pages, both from the CD booklet and from other sources. Some of the photos have not been previously released. YouTube videos have also been embedded in the pages, and you can also read our liner notes, review excerpts and other interesting text for each album. So far we've upgraded the album pages for Erik Norlander with the new content. We will be upgrading the Lana Lane and Rocket Scientists pages over the next couple of months.
Sale! Sale! Sale! Also note the new pricing for our back catalog titles:
Single CDs are $8.99, double CDs and DVDs are $11.99. Imports excluded.
