Woob – Have Landed Technicolor CD now available So-lus

 

Having sold out again the Technicolor CD is now back and available on its own for the first time. This is the last of the stock of the re-press and it will not get another one as I am phasing out CD’s.

 

This could soon be the last available CD to buy from the Woob Bandcamp store, as stock is getting low on Lost 1194 and Ultrascope. Oh and as for that green monochrome I’ll get on to to it eventually!

Woob – The Six Hundred

THE600WOOB

Above : Don’t worry it won’t be 600 months until all new Woob material arrives!

The Six Hundred takes 4 tracks from the Have Landed album and re-masters them onto a 50 year (600 month) old reel to reel tape. Expect drop outs, wow, flutter, hiss, high end loss, channel dips and all the idiosyncrasy of tape magnified x10 but these issues which were once actively avoided when tape was still used have been embraced and combined with all the benefits of tape warmth, fullness etc these tracks sound very different and somewhat unpredictable. Only ‘Spine’ keeps the exact same arrangement plus there’s a very special string only version of Thieves.

However although the cover suggests otherwise ‘The Six Hundred’ is only half the story as this release is about revisiting tracks in the analog domain so the 10” Clear Vinyl 24-bit masters are also included. Previously only available to those lucky enough to get hold of a Wooden Artifact* the 10” was a one off clear vinyl that included specially re-mastered versions of ‘La Luna’ and ‘Bognor Regis Stripper’. Plus as an added bonus a track from the vinyl collection has also been included.

Woob – Have Landed, CD + Artifact Update

Prototype

UPDATED – Shipping Forecast now posted.

20 different products from 9 different companies is what it has taken to create all the different versions of the Have Landed album, so the probability of getting it all to arrive in time to send out before Xmas was perhaps a little over optimistic. Therefore as was always mentioned as a possibility shipping for the CD’s will now begin in January bar any further delays. As for the ARTIFACTS, whilst the first batch was originally anticipated last week both batches arrived today and it is, well…. it’s looking amazing! a real rustic look with every one slightly different from the other due to the subtle differences in the wood grain and hue. The numbered plaques are already here too but given that these objects are irreplaceable if they go missing in the post and with myself already having a few parcels disappear coming to me already I have decided I’m not going to take the risk sending them out until we are into the new year. However I will try and get a few pictures up before Xmas to keep you going:)

I will post a shipping forecast in January and link to it on the bandcamp page. CD Orders will be sent out in order of purchase but artifacts will go first. Also Pre-order offers have been extended while stocks last.

In the meantime check out above a shot of the final prototype for the stencilled sleeve that forms part of the Monochrome edition which takes 8 different items from 7 different companies to create…… think I’m gonna simplify things for the next release and just put it out on cassette!

Woob – 1112 New Album – ‘Have Landed’ out now – CD Custom Cover options and Artifact available



In an amazing turn of events Woob has assimilated Max & Harvey and released the album ‘Have Landed’ aka Woob³ onto the world but don’t worry we cloned them first so you will still be able to buy the album at the Emporium if you prefer.

Have Landed encompasses some of the best recordings previously released under the Max & Harvey moniker along with a plethora of new material including a few surprises. With musical styles from the time periods of 1899, 1969, 1999 and 2099 in an H.G. Wells inspired time travel extravaganza. It’s the future that never happened – happening right now!

There is a whole host of different editions to check out at the Stores – here’s a summary:

Get lost in the late 19th century in a world created from the future in Technicolor. Create your own adventure with the ‘Custom Cover CD’ & deluxe sticker sheet or travel to a previous classified time and destination and battle giant sea creatures.

Alternatively peruse the Black & White 60’s elegant cinematic design aesthetics of the Monochrome Edition with hand crafted stencilled sleeve, poster and more (only 50 available.)

A release in its own right  Have Landed: ‘Complete Cinematic Works’ is delivered on a carved wooden artifact and contains not only the 24-bit masters but everything else related, including previously unreleased material and a special Vinyl captured collection: A one-off clear vinyl has been created especially for this collection. (Full contents listed on store page)

Finally for those who want it all and more the Ultimate Edition may hit 3 figures in its $ price tag but it comes with a replica of a real life rocket ship! but that’s just a bit of fun the main focus in this edition is the amount of merchandise you receive so much in fact it ships in two packages! Includes, unique hand drawn items, the Artifact, Monocrome CD Set + Signed and Sealed Edition Technicolor Edition and more. Only 4 Available (One Per Person)

Full details at Woob’s ‘Have landed’ Bandcamp page and if there’s something you were after and it’s sold out click on the Emporium to see if there are any left there.

 

Additional Info.

The Artifact is limited to 25, split between both stores and the Ultimate Edition. If it proves popular I may consider another 25 if enough people email me however this will come signed but not numbered.

All Products are pre-order but come with instant digital download + all pre-orders come with a bonus gift and bonus digital track. Shipping begins at some point in December but obviously if there is any delay I will ship in the new year if it gets too close to Xmas to post.

Behind the Scenes – Max & Harvey – Space Therapy The Movie

The video above for Max & Harvey – Space Therapy may look like a still picture with a simple animated starfield backdrop but in fact like many special effects these days there is a lot more going on behind the scenes. For over six months the great people at Weta Digital helped by an additional sub team, with members from Industrial Light and Magic, worked tirelessly to bring to you what appears on first glance to be something so simple. Each Star (or Sun) represented in the video was carefully and individually animated and rendered for the ultimate in realism. Below you can see a rough animated mock up of just one of the Suns used to make up the starfield. [Read more…]
