Bassnectar - Noise vs Beauty - Listening Party

Noise vs Beauty Listening Party!

Tomorrow at 7pm PST to celebrate the launch of NVSB I’m going to be listening to the album start-to-finish, and sharing my thoughts, hopes and fears online in real time, offering behind-the-scenes tidbits and fun facts for the heads, plus the occasional unrelated musing about planet earth.

Gather your friends, nectar-addled pets and bass-headed loved ones, and join me and the Bassnectar community via the power of your mind’s eye for a shared listening experience in our giant communal digital living room, aka the internet.

Just press play on Track 1 at 7pm PST (use time.gov and make sure you’re set to Pacific Standard Time) and then tune in on Twitter to take part in the conversation as we experience NVSB in psychic unison. Will empathetic enlightenment be attained? Possibly not. But it will definitely be fun. And, unless you’re doing something wrong, it will be loud and it will be heavy.

I can’t wait for you to hear the album! And this way we can enjoy it together no matter where you are in the world 🙂

    Ugh. Its ridiculous how awesome you are, Lorin. You’re an example to the rest of the EDM community and frankly, the world. You are a constant reminder that some people are still in it for the music and the creative journey. Thank you so much for that.

  • Conrad Ohr

    I cannot download my digital album pre-order, gives me access denied, and charged me from my 15 downloads available, I have 11 now 🙁

    • james

    • Jesse Hartlein

      I think its 12am Pacific time, about 12 minutes to go!

    • David Giovannini

      Hey Conrad, are you still having issues? The pre-order was acting a little wonky across time zones earlier.

    • Chris Basscrew

      Any luck here @conradohr:disqus ?

  • Davin McLaughlin

    I’m having issues with my download as well. I tried clicking on the link but it just takes me back to the downloads page and says it’s expired

    • Chris Basscrew

  • Malanka Riabokin

    I absolutely LOVE that you opted to share the album like this with the rest of the bassheads. I’m sure if you polled us, probably 95% of us would say that sitting down and just rocking out to any one of your albums with you is like #1 on their bucket list (or at the very least, top 5).
    Sharing is caring – and we know you care 🙂 so everyone else, spread the love!

  • Alli Kreger

    this album is absolutely beautiful and so diverse. I don’t think there are enough words in the world to describe how amazing and well put together this album is. I can definitely tell just exactly how much work you put into Noise vs Beauty. Thank you Lo 🙂

  • Hey Chris So I purchased the Vinyl last night and went to download the Mp3 version and the link says its expired? I click out it a few time and it just gave me an error message no download. Any help would be appreciated!

    • Chris Basscrew

      Hey Phillip! I was just about to respond your email that was forwarded to me 🙂 Did you log into your account in the store and check your downloadable products? Let me know so I can look into it!

      • I checked my downloadable products and it says expired – 0 downloads remain. But every time I clicked to download earlier it gave me an error message and the download never popped up. The You & Me download works fine though.

        • Chris Basscrew

          On the case!
