For those of you who just can't get enough of "the world's most dangerous guitarist" (JazzTimes), here's a package that will have you champing at the bit.
To celebrate the Nels Cline Singers fourth album for Cryptogramophone Records, Initiate, the group's first live disc and its first double disc (featuring immaculate photos of the Large Hadron Collider, the largest machine in the world, by photographer Simon Norfolk), Nels and his team have created a package you won't be able to pass up.
The "Initiate Bundle" features a beautiful double CD with booklet, a Nels Cline Singers t-shirt (100% cotton, short sleeve tee in silver with The Nels Cline Singers logo on front and "Initiate" on the back) and a Singers tote bag (an all natural cotton canvas tote with Initiate logo on front, The Nels Cline Singers in text on back). Weighing 12 ounces, this is a thick and durable tote with extended shoulder straps for added comfort. Perfect for carrying vinyl, books, groceries, children, small dogs, etc.
The Initiate Bundle is available for pre-order HERE. (This item will not ship until on or near April 8th, to allow delivery by the release date, April 13.)
