Uxipi said...

What about cherry and running? I already have the desire & cia (new desire would be welcome, I love Megan's voice :)...

IDIB said...

THE LONG AWAITED NEW DESIRE FULL LENGTH IS ALREADY IN THE MIXING PROCESS...WE'RE HOPING FOR A JANUARY/ FEBRUARY RELEASE. DESIRE ALSO CONTRIBUTED SEVERAL SONGS TO THE "BEAUTIFUL NOW" FILM. WE ARE RELEASING THE FULL SOUNDTRACK IN JANUARY WITH ORIGINAL SCORE BY MR. JEWEL... ALONG WITH POP SONGS FROM CHROMATICS, GLASS CANDY, DESIRE, MIRAGE, & SYMMETRY. THIS SOUNDTRACK IS ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE!!!

IDIB said...

CHERRY & RUNNING FROM THE SUN ARE IN THE NEXT BATCH OF RECORDS COMING. WE PROMISE.

Uxipi said...

That's amazing,
thank you!!

Anonymous said...

Yes! Thanks for finally re-pressing the Desire album. Been waiting 2 years for this. Is there gonna be a cd of The Messenger? Or is it vinyl only?

IDIB said...

VINYL ONLY FOR "THE MESSENGER" LP. JOHNNY IS GOING TO MAKE A CONTINUES MIX OF THE WHOLE LP NEXT WEEK FOR SOUNDCLOUD...AND SORRY IT TOOK US SO LONG TO REPRESS THE DESIRE RECORD. WE ARE WORKING ON KEEPING ALL OF THE CLASSICS IN STOCK : )

IDIB said...

OH...AND "THE MESSENGER" IS ON ITUNES IF YOU WANT TO PICK IT UP THAT WAY.

adrienne said...

last year i saw symmetry perform live at a private fashion event in austria. the song they opened with was amazing-but i haven't been able to find it anywhere. anyone know what it's called or if it's on "the messenger" record?

IDIB said...

HEY ADRIENNE,
THE SONG THEY OPENED WITH AT THAT PARTY IS CALLED "STILL LIFE". IT'S THE TITLE TRACK FROM THEIR NEXT LP OUT SOMETIME IN 2014. THAT TRACK IS A PERSONAL FAVORITE AROUND IDIB HEADQUARTERS. THE 6 MINUTE VERSION IS ABSOLUTELY MESMERIZING. WE CAN'T SAY EXACTLY WHAT YET...BUT YOU MAY BE SEEING IT ON A TELEVISION NEAR YOU BEFORE THE END OF THE YEAR. ; )

any word on the glass candy & chromatics shows coming to Los Angeles??????

IDIB said...

NO L.A. SHOWS UNTIL THE NEW YEAR. WE LOOKED INTO BOOKING THEM AFTER TEXAS BUT THE TIMING WASN'T RIGHT FOR ALL OF THE VENUES WE WANTED TO THROW THE PARTY AT. : (

Come back to Atlanta!!!!

Jeff said...

Wait...Symmetry performs live? Why haven't I seen that? PS Thanks for the records!

crises said...

Wow, that'll be my 5th different pressing from Kill for Love and Night Drive. It's okay if next batch of vinyls (with Cherry and Running from the Sun) won't arrive until December. :D

Can't wait for the new soundtrack!!

Anonymous said...

NOoooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!.....
thanks anyway. I will definately
try to get tix for when they in the upcoming year. can't wait

IDIB said...

SYMMETRY HAS DONE A HANDFUL OF PERFORMANCES ACROSS EUROPE & ASIA. UNIQUE ONE OFF EVENTS...FASHION PARTIES...MUSEUMS...TRAIN STATIONS...RUNWAYS...BOOK RELEASES...FILM PREMIERS... EACH ONE VERY DIFFERENT. LIKE SONIC WALLPAPER FOR ENVIRONMENTS.

crises said...

Johnny, may you check if the ZIP file containing THE MESSENGER WAVs is ok? I got problems to unzip it and it only contains 9xWAV plus a PNG file. VANISHING POINT, UPTOWN RAIN and WAITING ROOM files are missing. Or so it seems.

IDIB said...

USE THIS LINK FOR NOW:

NOT SURE WHY THE ZIP FROM THE STORE IS GLITCHING. THANKS FOR LETTING US KNOW.
XO

Woa you guys really show love to the fans! Thanks! I'm sure the link was probably messed up because so many people are trying to grab it at the same time ;)

crises said...

Sendspace file worked! UPTOWN RAIN is just bliss. <3 Thanks so much, Johnny.

This has me so excited for November 8th! Can't wait to see you guys!

Thanks for all the hard work.

-much love, Tevin Whitney

Jazmine said...

Oh my, what a nice surprise. IDIB always brings the goods <3 going to buy this on iTunes tonight.

And a new Desire LP is so exciting. I think everyone could use some new Desire tunes in their life.

Coffinbruh said...

Every song a post-modern classic, every release an instant classic, every release quality, every release relevant, and IDIB: the only label where you can blindlyorder and KNOW it is going to be tight as fuck. Can't heap enough praises to the entire collectivity that is IDIB for finally making the music people hoped for decades could be made. Hail. Thank you for doing it best.

Kyle Sacks said...

Those clear vinyls look so cool. Definitely excited for all the new stuff coming!

Also, I love the piles of New York Rocker. That magazine was before my time, but I've always heard great things about it. I'll have to come visit you guys some day and leaf through them ;)

Dan said...

is Glass Candy's Body Work still coming later this year?
And what about heavyweight vinyl, would it be too expensive? I've got no idea about vinyl production and costs, I'm only a buyer.

random long shot but... Any chance Chromatics are doing a rework to Animal Nitrate?

Thom said...

I would definitely like to hear that random ask above. ^^

Brad said...

Are there any copies of Symmetry's The Messenger on clear vinyl left over? Looks like I've left it too late, and it's sold out. Boo.8 tween

Anonymous said...

I thought tick of the clock was mail order only :/ http://www.normanrecords.com/records/143769-the-chromatics-tick-the-clock-

IDIB said...

CHROMATICS ALREADY DID ANIMAL NITRATE...YOU MEAN REWORKING IT AGAIN?

IDIB said...

UNFORTUNATELY WE CAN'T CONTROL WHAT PEOPLE PUT IN THEIR STORES ANYMORE THAN WE CAN CONTROL WHAT PEOPLE DO ON EBAY. WE DIDN'T SELL THEM TO STORES. SO IF YOU SEE "TICK OF THE CLOCK" IT IN A STORE...IT'S SOMEONE TRYING TO CAPITALIZE ON HOW RARE IT IS. THEY BOUGHT IT FROM US AS AN INDIVIDUAL FOR $5...AND THEN MARKED IT UP FOR YOU TO BUY. OUR PRICES ARE SO CHEAP THAT THEY CAN MAKE A PROFIT ON THE RECORDS.

IDIB said...

ALSO...JUST LOOKED AT THE WEBSITE. 10 POUNDS???THEY HAVE THE EDITION AND CATALOG NUMBER WRONG. THERE'S ONLY ONE VERSION OF THIS RECORD. SORRY FOR THE PARASITES OUT THERE.

Anonymous said...

Yes, we do mean a rework of the chromatics cover of animal nitrate (tbh i didnt even know it was a cover until now). The way Lady was reworked is night and day, is nothing short of amazeballs...

uxipi said...

They're selling the messenger too, that's sad.
Is there any chance to limit the mail order series to one copy per costumer at least for one week or so? That could help to stop the parasites and fans could get a chance to buy it directly from you instead from the "black market".

Anonymous said...

Hi everyone I don't think its so bad that Norman records have tick of the clock. I know it is mail order only and I bought mine from IDIB as I always do, but at least they have it at a reasonable price so people in the UK can get it with out paying for the big shipping costs. I would be pissed if it was massively marked up like I see sometimes on discogs or ebay. Even on ebay some IDIB cds are very cheap and are fans selling to fans rather than trying to cash in. One good thing about Norman records is that they are a good record store and will allow people to discover the good music that IDIB put out unlike a lot of other record stores. Anyway received my Messenger and Desire Lps today :-) spinning Desire as i'm typing this to you all. Keep up the good work

uxipi said...

hey A, I buy almost all of my music from norman records and I can say that they're prices are fair enough and the service is incredibly good but, if this is supposed to be a "mail order only", they should respect that or at least let IDIB know that they're selling it. 10 pounds for a record that costs 5 or less is not fair.
It's just my opinion, I'll keep buying music from IDIB and norman records as well.

Carl said...

Hey Uxipi, Yeah I do agree with you was just saying it could be a lot worse, I guess its just the way the world works these days, if there's money to be made somebody is going to cash in on it. Personally I always order from IDIB even though I live in the UK and have to pay more shipping. I do because of the way IDIB is run and I want to support them as they do such a great job! Doing one per customer might be annoying for people who place orders for a group of friends etc though. Did you manage to get Messenger for yourself?

uxpi said...

Carl,
Yes. I got tick of the clock and the messenger from IDIB store. I live in Spain so shipping costs are high too.
I understand that one per costumer policy punishes the wrong people, but also could stop the ones that get 20 copies to sell them all on ebay for 30$.

:)

IDIB said...

IN AN IDEAL SCENARIO...RECORD STORES WOULD RESPECT THAT WE WANT TO KEEP SPECIALTY RELEASES OFF OF RECORD STORE SHELVES...BUT WE ARE REALISTIC AND UNDERSTAND THE COMMODIFICATION OF ART. THE MAIL ORDER SERIES IS MEANT TO REACH OUT TO THE HARDCORE FANS DIRECTLY THAT UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY ARE BUYING. BY THIS, WE MEAN...THEY WON'T BE UPSET OR CONFUSED AT MULTIPLE VERSIONS OF SONGS. "CHERRY" AND "RUNNING FROM THE SUN" ARE CONCEPTUAL COUNTER POINTS TO "KILL FOR LOVE" & "AFTER DARK 2". JUST AS "THE MESSENGER" WAS LIKE A TRAILER FOR "THEMES FOR AN IMAGINARY FILM"...WE ARE EXCITED TO KEEP MAKING LIMITED RUNS OF RECORDS WE FIND INTERESTING THAT COMPLIMENT THE MORE OFFICIAL RELEASES. GLAD TO HEAR EVERYONE'S THOUGHTS ON THIS, AND WE HAVE NO BEEF WITH NORMAN RECORDS OR ANYONE ELSE TRYING TO HUSTLE FOR WHATEVER REASON. THE MAIL ORDER IS AN EXTENSION OF WHAT JOHNNY USED TO DO WITH THE DEMO CDRS BACK IN THE DAY...EXPERIMENTING & MAKING SOMETHING UNIQUE. WE LOVE RECORDS....WE MAKE RECORDS... WE AREN'T THE POLICE. : )

Tevin said...

Man I love you guys so much :) Can't wait for the 8th!
