A Midsummer’s Update!

Hey everyone,

While you’re enjoying these hot August nights (you’re welcome for THAT visual!), here’s a couple updates and a quick word from our sponsors….

First up: singles update!

SAMO sleeve proofs

Home stretch!

As we posted the other day on our new-fandangled Instagram account, we’ve turned the corner and our long awaited singles club will soon be out in the world! There’s a few final post-production pieces to take care of, and a cross-country freight delivery to account for, but looking like we’ll have our pre-orders out on/around Labour Day, with distros and shopping carts on the site soon to follow.

Thanks for the patience: this one has been a grind, but the end results will be worth the trouble.

Second up: The Ballantynes West Coast Tour!


The Ballantynes are taking their annual summer sojourn stateside, down the west coast, across to Austin and back. Tons of great happenings in-between, including recording sessions and bills with some of our favourite bands.

Keep abreast of all the details right here, and make sure to grab the new swag at the shows!


Last at bat: before signing off and getting back to the Olympic beach volleyball, a shout out to our friends over at NetBet Sports!

While you mighta been a day late to double down on Rosie MacLennan’s gold medal defence on the tralampolampoline today (go team!!), or a buck short when the Filipino Diving Team hit the springboards at last year’s Southeast Asian Games, it’s not too late to keep things interesting and throw down a few bucks on your summer game of choice.¬†Competitive betting lines and sign up bonuses galore!

Now, if only they had NetSports in 1978…we woulda bet the farm on Joan Jett in a heartbeat!
