Cassettes will be shipping out as of Tuesday and will be available from Blueprint and The Owl this week sometime. Go to our Bandcamp page to buy, if you haven’t already.
Thanks for all of you who got us to this point! We hope you are excited as we are!
Super quick update: Digital download cards are now ready to be stuffed into their cassettes. The cassettes will be shipping out on Monday, April 7th, which means we will have them just before our scheduled release date of Tuesday, April 15th.
We will continue to give you two more tracks to stream every weekend until release date!

ETA of cassettes from duplication.ca (Analogue Media Technologies Inc.) is April 4th. Release date is April 15th. You can pick them up in Lethbridge from Blueprint Entertainment or The Owl Acoustic Lounge. Or you could get a copy from the merch tables of your favorite Lethbridge bands.
With less than a month until the Windy Rock album gets released, we have decided to enable 2 new tracks for download and streaming each weekend until release.
This weekend’s two tracks are the last song on Side A, Dark Horse by Jesse Northey and the last song on Side B, Whiskey on Your Breath by Steven Foord.
Check ‘em out here:

So excited to be able to share this with everyone. The Windy Rock pre-order is now live. Get the digital version for $4 or upgrade to the cassette version for just $2 more! Both versions will come with a digital download of the album, and anyone who pre-orders will get a download of the first track on Side A and the first track of Side B. What are they you ask?
Side A, track one is Classette’s Diamond Blue. This is a brand-spanking new local band who, as far as I know, have not even played a show yet. I wasn’t even sure they had a band name until they sent me the track! Diamond Blue is a jangly meditation on love that will fishhook your heart. You’ve been warned.
Side B, track one is by recently resurrected pop-heroes the darby and joan club. Little Boy is a ripper of a track, zipping along over saturated guitars, a Beatles backbeat, and a solo pushed to it’s breaking point. It’s a bit of a departure from their previous work, but it will feel instantly familiar to DJC fans.
I have had this under my hat for quite some time now, but it was one of the first steps that I got underway. I spoke with our esteemed artist way back at the end of January about collaboration. When he responded with an affirmative I was beyond pleased. Lethbians will know him as the hat/glasses/beard guy from his slice-o-Lethy-life comic series Slaughterhouse Slough. Ladies and gents, Eric Dyck!
I couldn’t be more pleased with what he dreamed up. Prairies, music and even the train bridge (sorry, viaduct.) Thanks so much Eric for putting your one of a kind stamp on our project. Click one of those links to hire him for yourself. Man’s gotta eat!
We are getting closer everyday to our release dates. Pre-orders will open up this Friday!
