Great news, everyone! Our debut double album Greatest Hits is now officially out! It’s digitally available on a number of outlets.
If you’re an iTunes person, follow the button below. If you’re into Spotify, you can stream it right here. It’s also streaming in entirety at Apes on Tape. So have a listen and let us know what you think!
A number of those involved with our JMag shennigans have probably been inside our Adobe recording/rehearsal space in Spokane, WA. But we figured there’s also a good sized crowd that never had the chance to join us in that hallowed spot. We’ve found a video of us recording “Sickness” for the album inside the Adobe. It might give ya a look inside our workshop and how the recording process looks. Additionally, you can check out a live version of “Sickness” from Seattle’s Mars Bar during the Recession Rock tour in September of 2011. We hope you enjoy. Greatest Hits is out next Tuesday the first!
We’ve got exciting news to share from the Jacen Magnolia camp. After a long wait (hey, we think it’s well worth it) we’re proud to announce our debut album! Greatest Hits, our first official album, will be out October 2. Better yet, Greatest Hits, will be a double album featuring 21 songs on two sides. We’re also giddy to share both album covers. Side A’s cover is pictured above and Side B’s cover is below. Both covers feature the artwork of our good friend Beau Ferderer. Matthew Brady handled the editing.
Our first single from Greatest Hits is “In My Dreams, embedded below. Older fans may be familiar with the original version of “In My Dreams” last year, but we’re excited to share the cleaned up, improved, album cut. The full tracklisting for Greatest Hits is below. Additionally, you can pre-order the full Greatest Hits album right here. Thank you for all your support and we’re tickled to share Greatest Hits with you shortly!
