Intended Play 2012 – For The Vinyl-Phobic Amongst, The Price Just Dropped From $2 To Free

By Gerard on Friday, February 24th, 2012

(I really don’t see the resemblance)

Back in early January WE SHOCKED THE MUSIC WORLD with news of a $1.98 Matador/True Panther Sounds sampler LP including (mostly) new songs from The Young, Ceremony, Lee Ranaldo Tanlines, Perfume Genius, Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks, Fucked Up, Girls, Cold Cave, Esben and The Witch and Kurt Vile. It’s come to our attention that a) there’s a few stragglers out there who’ve yet to order this limited edition LP, and b) some of you either trashed your record players or simply prefer music in digital form.

So here’s the deal — you can still order the vinyl version from The Matador Store or hound your local retailer who might’ve filed it in THE $2 BIN.  Failing that, here’s a free download of the entire compilation. You’re welcome!

Fucked Up’s MIDNIGHT MADNESS (Tonight): David Comes To Life On-Sale For $3.99 And Up + Much Virtual Storage

By Adam F on Monday, June 6th, 2011

David Comes To Life - $3.99 and up

To celebrate the release of Fucked Up’s David Comes To Life, the album will be on sale for $3.99 (in MP3) as “MIDNIGHT MADNESS” takes over  MatadorRecords.com starting at 12am EST tonight.

The catch is, the album will only be $3.99 for about 2 minutes. That’s right.  From midnight until noon tomorrow, the price of the MP3 album will be steadily going up until it hits full price once again.

And that’s not all….  while we can’t compete with Fucked Up’s physical world antics in Toronto, our version of “MIDNIGHT MADNESS” will also include a virtual pop-up store with a screening room, characters from the “story”, a live webcam from Toronto “MIDNIGHT MADNESS” and a preview of our just about ready to launch “MataCloudTM.”

Can’t get your head around all of this?  That’s cool, because all you will have to do is check back at this space in 15 hours to really understand.
