  • Cassette + Digital Album

    The Compact Cassette or Musicassette (MC), also commonly called cassette tape, audio cassette, or simply tape or cassette, is a magnetic tape recording format for audio recording and playback. Compact cassettes come in two forms, either already containing content as a pre-recorded cassette, or as fully recordable "blank" cassette. It was designed originally for dictation machines, but improvements in fidelity led the Compact Cassette to supplant the Stereo 8-track cartridge and reel-to-reel tape recording in most non-professional applications. Its uses ranged from portable audio to home recording to data storage for early microcomputers. Between the early 1970s and the late 1990s, the cassette was one of the two most common formats for prerecorded music, first alongside the LP record and later the compact disc.

  • Limited Edition Green/Blue/Black Vinyl LP
    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Joyful Noise only made 150 of these green / Blue vinyl with black splatter. Sad to say, they're all gone now. But the "regular", i.e unlimited edition vinyl is also a swirl of two kinds of green, just without the black splatter. So don't fret, lovers of colored vinyl.

Track Name: slowly by your passing
Words by Mark Trecka:
I've been overcome slowly by your passing,
and so I raise my voice in song
so high sometimes that I can not love gracefully,
and so that I might not love only for so long.
