Buddard releases The Formative Beers ’91 – ’97 [2012-03-08]

Say hello to The Formative Beers ’91 – ’97, a compilation of 38 remastered Buddard demos from the good old days! The songs were all transferred from cassette tape, carefully restored and then digitally remastered.

You’ll find the album over at www.buddard.com. There you can stream it and buy it in a number of different formats (MP3 320, WAV, FLAC, OGG, …) — Pay what you want, from 0 EUR and up! The album should also appear on Spotify within a couple of weeks. Or you can just grab the torrent (MP3 320, about 295 MB) if you’re so inclined.

The album is of course released under Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0, some rights reserved.

Also, be sure to find us on Facebook, Twitter and SoundCloud.

RIP Paul Raven, 1961-2007 [2007-10-24]

It is with great shock and sadness that I have received the news about the passing of an old friend of mine, Paul Raven. He died in his sleep early saturday morning of an apparent heart attack, just 46 years old. My thoughts go out to his family and friends who have suffered an incredible loss.

Buddard remixes love|less [2006-10-06]

Almost two years ago I made a remix for Swedish synth-pop band love|less of their single “Something about you”… Well, “remix” may not be the best word to describe it: I threw out everything but the vocals and basically built up an entirely new song around them. It was a lot of fun to do, but I was afraid that the band would be put off by the rather unorthodox combination of metal and reggae. So I sent them a copy of my work-in-progress, and they liked it!

The result has yet to be released, but love|less vocalist Micke Askernäs tells me that it might show up on a remix EP/album in the near future. In the meantime, you can download it in our covers & remixes section.

We’re relicensing our music [2005-12-05]

In light of an article by Erik Möller entitled Creative Commons -NC Licenses Considered Harmful and the discussions surrounding it, we have decided to relicense all our music under the less restrictive Attribution-ShareAlike license. This means that our music may now be used commercially without our permission.

The ShareAlike condition should provide enough protection against commercial exploitation, since any added value (such as CD cover art for example) counts as a derivative work, and as such has to be released to the public under an identical license. The Attribution condition makes sure that we are attributed as specified in our license notice (i e the artists’ name and immaterialmusic.com should be clearly visible).

As always, if you would like to do something with our music but feel that the license is too restrictive or incompatible with your own license, just contact us and we can probably work something out.

‘Two tons of steel’ video [2005-02-28]

On the new Buddard album there’s a song called ‘Two tons of steel’, that we wrote about our friends’ ’63 Buick Riviera. He suggested that we post a link to it over at the Riviera owner’s association. So we did, and a few days later this video appeared out of the blue:

(.wmv, 7MB)

It was made by a proud Riviera owner who calls himself 75RivGS. We’d like to thank him for making this very cool video, and for letting us host it here!
