Sit Resist OUT NOW - Free Stream/Download

The new Laura Stevenson and The Cans record comes out today! To celebrate this epic release we have decided to make it available for free download and and streaming for a month. We couldn't really say it any better than the band if we tried:

"Today, we are proud to announce the long-awaited release of our first proper full-length album, Sit Resist. To celebrate this occasion and to reward our long-time fans for loyally supporting us for the past three years, we are offering MP3s of the album, in its entirety, for free, for one month.

If you like the album, want to support us, and want to encourage more artists to distribute their music for free on the internet, the best and easiest thing you can do is to simply share this album with your friends right now. Share this link on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Friendster, whatever... show your support! Beyond that, we would love to see you at any of our upcoming shows, and of course, if you decide to purchase the album, that helps us too.

Sit Resist
is available on iTunes, on CD and LP from Don Giovanni Records, and it should be in your local independent record store (if they don't have it, please tell them to stock it). We hope you love it! THANK YOU!"

We’ve never done anything like this before, but we’ve also never had this many new releases coming in at once before (not to mention the ones that just came in). In an effort to clear space in a serious way, and also do something cool that will hopefully encourage people to check out some of our releases they may have missed, we are having a spring cleaning sale.

I am always skeptical of this kind of thing. Usually it is an excuse for labels to clear out their unsellable crap. That is not what we are doing here (although lets be honest, it would be nice to at least get rid of a little bit of our unsellable crap in the process).

For $14, $15, or $20 dollars PPD respectively, we will send you 3 RANDOM CDs, 7”s, or LPs. Nothing in stock will be held back, nothing will be a promo copy, and since we are clearing out a closet, people will most likely even end up with out of print items.

Sound good? I hope so because we need to make space.

These deals are for US AND CANADA ONLY (shipping alone would double the price of these deals)

These will run till May 1st or while supplies last.
