Thread: Hooffoot: Swedish jazz/progressive on Kommune #2 label.

    I want the vinyl.

    They should come to Norway and gig with someone like Needlepoint, whose audience would most likely love Hoffoot as well. Hell, the Big Dipper store here in Oslo turned nearly 70 vinyl copies of the Kvartätten som Sprängde reissue!

    There is a lot of soul, time, and a shit load of money invested into this our debut album. Also this is an 100% analog production. After putting all that effort into the sound it didn´t feel right to throw it all in the MP3 grind. However, of course we want people to be able to hear this! :-)
    We have contemplated your opinions in this thread and then decided to follow your advice. Now it is available for lossless download from Bandcamp.
    Hope the price is right? (I have no idea since I never download myself)
    Enjoy!
    Greetings from HOOFFOOT
    Will Transubstance ever release it on CD or is it going to be LP only? Also in the digital download, do you include some covers files or no?

    When the autumn is here there might be a CD available. I can´t promise. We´ll see.
    In what form would a customer like you prefer to get the cover files when you download? I guess you are referring to a cover that you can print and make a nice CR-R copy with to have in your car for the roadtrip to the nearest Hooffoot concert :-)
    Two separate A4 for inner and outer sleeve?
    A printable A3 sheet where you fold the two sides together?
    An adjusted double sided A4?
    Maybe I can have a look around Bandcamp to get an idea...sorry I am way to analog for this digital world :-)

    Man this is NICE stuff. It was disheartening to read that it wasn't available (only vinyl), and then.....voila!.....happy ending! I'd still rather have the disc though.

    Wow I love this. Superb driving music, with a nostalgic feel, in the first half, and a nice trippy 2nd half. The last 2 minutes of the 8-minute clip are my favorite and what really sold me. Thanks for making it available to download

    Yes, you are right. I would love to be able to print a cover that I would place inside the jewel-case of my CD-R. It's nice to hold something in your hand when you play the music. I understand your predicament, analog vs. digital. I will buy the FLAC files and will hope (and keep my fingers crossed) for a proper CD release.

    If a CD version materializes, you guys will get at least one sale.
    No humor please, we're skittish.

    Never let good music get in the way of making a profit.

    Another bump for this truly noteworthy album. https://hooffoot.bandcamp.com/
    Like electric Miles Davis? Soft Machine? Weather Report? Return to Forever? Jukka Tolonen? Great instrumental jazzy/proggy workouts? You're gonna ***LOVE*** this album. Currently in my top 3 for 2015 so far (along with the Steven Wilson album and Umphrey's McGee London Session album).

    The vinyl was on my porch when I got home tonight. Well, it was in a shipping box.

    I'm about half way through side one and am totally digging this so far. Certainly a contender for my top 10 this year, based upon what I'm hearing so far.

    Loved the FLAC so much I bought the vinyl. Outstanding. Sounds fantastic and the gatefold has great artwork.
