As some of you may already know, The Paranoid Style proudly released its first EP on Bar/None Records , “The Purposes Of Music In General” this past Tuesday. We’d like to thank all of our friends who so generously shared the link to our fine product and who wished us congratulations. By way of saying “thanks”, we threw a little listening party at our apartment. Only Timothy and I were actually able to attend, but a few of our comrades and collaborators skyped in to say hey and wish us well. By way of celebrating this massive accomplishment with all of you, we decided to make a video of our listening party that previews a new Paranoid Style song that is NOT on the EP that we co-wrote with the illustrious Ross Flournoy. Please enjoy and thanks again for all your support! Love, Elizabeth
It’s time to reveal a nifty little Double Feature bonus that I’ve been collaborating on with some friends over the last few weeks: it’s a chapbook entitled, “Special Features & Deleted Scenes.” As suggested by the name, it includes a couple of scenes I cut from the novel, as well as a hodgepodge of “special features,” facsimile documents that relate to the lives and careers of the characters in the book - an interview, encyclopedia entries, and a few other curiosities. My friend Amanda Spielman designed the project and she is a powerful wizard. It looks beautiful.
One of the coolest aspects of the chapbook is that it includes a download code for the new 6-song EP from my friends Timothy Bracy and Elizabeth Nelson Bracy, the rock and roll nomads behind a hot new band called the Paranoid Style. I actually contributed a couple of lines to one of the songs on the EP and geniuses that they are, they somehow made that work. They are funny and wonderful and if you like great music you may feel compelled to start a new religion based on their teachings.
So, in the weeks to come you can expect me to announce a bunch of giveaways on Facebook and on the Twitter. I’m also going to be giving the chapbook away at the bookstores I visit in March and April. The Paranoid Style will also be giving chapbooks away - like them here on The Facebook to enhance your chances, and then stay for the amazing rock and roll.
Supplies are limited and the chapbook won’t be for sale, so if you’re interested, stay sharp!
