The split cassette will be available for free with admission to the album release show at The Goat Farm this Friday (April 22). But with only 50 copies made you might want to get there early. And if you’re wondering why they chose to release the music on cassette, Norbery has your answer. “Because of the totally warm sound quality, maann! We just wanted to make a neat, handmade collectible," he adds. "Vinyl is always everybody’s first choice, but it's just too expensive for tiny, self-released projects like this. Part of the appeal of tapes is that, like vinyl, you can't just rip them and forget them like people tend to do with CDs. This will all be available digitally anyhow, so burning a bunch of CD-Rs would have been just as unnecessary.”
“Helmut” was recorded by Nomen Novum for the split release and plays on sounds Norbery recorded while staying at a cabin in Mentone, AL. If you check out his Band Camp page you’ll find some other new unreleased tracks, along with pretty much everything Nomen Novum has released.
Nomen Novum, Magicicada and Tree Creature play a 3-way split release show at The Goat Farm on Fri,, April 22. $7 (includes a cassette). 9 p.m. 1200 Foster St.

Yes, 14 is the correct answer. I'll pass your info along to the group's manager,…
That was January of 2007, and they are 21 now, so I'm guessing 14?
