New Indie Vision Music Tshirts / Site Relaunch

Indie Vision Music is now officially 16 years old. I founded the site on July 4th 2000 as an independent online music store, sharing music from independent Christian artists/bands. A lot has changed in 16 years but one thing remains the same: PASSION. So with this renewed passion and burning desire to share hopeful music with a whole new generation, I am aiming to re-launch the Indie Vision Music site at www.indievisionmusic.com The site should be live and ready to go in a few weeks.

To help celebrate this anniversary milestone and the re-launch in general, I have had 3 newly designed tshirts created by Brian Morgante at Flesh and Bone Design. They are all posted for sale at just $16 each! That’s right, 3 new designs, 3 colors each, sizes small-xxxl. There is even a woman’s tshirt (Circle Logo Design, click the pull down menu to see it). Help re-launch the Indie Vision Music and get the promotional hype train rolling.

In addition to the new merch, I have posted up all the old Indie Vision Music compilations that were offered through our website in the past. Check all those out for FREE right now on the IVM bandcamp.

What will you see on the new IVM site? Well for one, the focus will primarily be on music news. We will have some writers joining us that will contribute a variety of reviews and other writings. We may do a few interviews as well.

So get ready to join with me in taking back the music scene one step at a time. Embrace the music, embrace the passion.

 

 

 

Screaming Giant on Bandcamp/Twitter/Facebook

Anyone remember Screaming Giant Records? Well I actually worked at this label briefly when I was 18 years old. I kinda gave Kendall (Nadeau) the idea to launch a label after I showed him a bunch of Demos back in the day. The label launched as Slingshot Records then changed it’s name to Screaming Giant Records after we found out there was another label with the “Slingshot” name. I still remember passing demos of Incomplete, Dingees, Project 86, Bloodshed/Slingshot David, 180 (later Flight 180), Pax, Tasty Snax, and….OFFICER NEGATIVE. The label actually released the first two albums by the bands Second Half and Officer Negative but only one entered distribution and that was Officer Negative. The original pressing of this album had the rare song “Meathead” on it (later removed). I left the label right around the time of Tasty Snax release because I wanted to get married and focus my attention on our new family. I didn’t actually get back into “Music” until 2 years later when I launched Indie Vision Music.

So anyway that leaves us where we are at right now. I connected with Kendall recently (Backyard remodel) and asked him about putting all the old Screaming Giant releases in digital format on Bandcamp. He agreed and so I launched Screaming Giant on Bandcamp/Twitter/Facebook. The albums will slowly be added over time and all the song files uploaded soon. They will be available for purchase from this bandcamp link and available for a low price. The compilations will hopefully be for FREE Download if it all works out. There might even be a few rare/unreleased tunes as well if we can find them. So make sure to visit Screaming Giant here: [Bandcamp] [Twitter] [Facebook].

 

The Prayer Chain to Press “Mercury” On Double Vinyl For 20th Anniversary

The Prayer Chain 1995 alt-rock masterpiece, “Mercury”, is getting the (double) vinyl treatment. The group is looking to raise $3000 to cover the cost of pressing these vinyl records. Check out the kickstarter campaign right here. You can listen to the album below.

New Sounds: Come Wind

The fabulous indie rock band, Come Wind, have gone through somewhat of a reawakening and reemerging as forerunners in a scene overrun with stagnant clones and boring sameness. My pals at I Am Tuned Up have put up a brand new feature with this great band right here including two brand new songs as well as a feature on the group. There is plenty of tasty info and a backstory to keep you glued to your screen. Please read up on the band and listen to these deeply touching and introspective songs. I can’t think of a better band of their genre that are making music in the independent realm right now. Give Come Wind a whirl. Enjoy!
