James’s brand new album, Another Life is now available! In celebration of the release, we’re excited to announce a special promotion for the month of August. Beginning today, August 1st, Another Life will be featured by the Coalition of Independent Music Stores (CIMS) as part of their Mixtape listening booth program.
What exactly does this mean, you ask? Well, the CIMS is a group of some of the BEST independent music stores in America, and for the entire month, Another Life will be in rotation playing at various retailers that feature the Mixtape listening booth. To find out which CIMS stores support the Mixtape program, and to find a store near you, check out the full list at the bottom of this post.
Now let us explain how we need YOUR help:
We can’t possibly visit every single listening booth, in every single store, in every single town... so we’re counting on all of you to head to your local participating CIMS locations, and then check back in with us with the full report. Every month a custom Mixtape booth poster is created, featuring the theme for that month, in addition to personalized reviews, descriptions, and artwork for each album. This means Another Life will be featured on the August poster, so keep your eyes peeled!
All we need you to do is snap a quick photo, record a short video, or simply tell us about your listening booth experience. You can share your content with us on the official James Maddock Facebook page, and we’ll highlight everything we receive throughout the month of August.
You can also submit your photos/videos/stories to Twitter and Instagram if you’re on those social networks. On Twitter, just make sure to mention @jamesmaddock in your tweet, and if you’re uploading a photo to Instagram, make sure to include @jamesmamaddock in your photo caption.
This is your chance to get creative and we can’t wait to see what you send us! Go support your local CIMS stores, and of course, happy listening!
