The Stereo Society Newsletter
July 2016

Yes, you thought we were on that mission to Pluto. But all that we have been when quiet is a dreadful combination of busy and lazy. Here’s a quick update of what has actually developed.

For the (very extensive) new details, follow the links and then wander around. We’ve changed a lot, including some navigation features. Newsletters may have been sparse, but we’ve still been at it.

The most important notes are about recent and upcoming releases from BETTY, Sarah Jane Morris, Genya Ravan, and Carol Lipnik. Look on the site for the full details.

Mike Thorne and BETTY will finish BETTY’s new album in a couple of weeks. It has been a leisurely while in the making, four years from their last one, but 13 extraordinary songs have emerged.

When we finalize release dates we’ll let you know and release a teaser clip. We think it’s right grand. And a dramatic departure from previous BETTY recorded sounds – but not from their attitude, songs, singing and uncompromising raucousness and social activism.

In the meantime, just to keep you going - here's BETTY performing Rise at the City Winery, NYC; this is the song they wrote in response to One Billion Rising's call to end violence against women, and for equal rights. It’s on their new album, reworked and tightened up in the studio, and is now for voices (lots) and pounding drums (only).

New collaborative album, Compared To What, from Sarah Jane Morris and Antonio Forcione to be released in London in October - loads of info here.

We’re going to raise prices next month. They are presently way below the norm, since we prefer to get noise out there. It’s not a negotiation – we need support, but getting you to listen is primary. Please stampede to CDBaby before we start gouging.
