The Medium Mood (described as "hardcore for bookworms") release their CD this Friday, November 23 at the Marquee with Tomcat Combat, Play Guitar and i see rowboats. They are performing the whole show in surround sound, which sounds equally difficult and awesome. "We like speakers. We like big sounds. We have unnecessarily big amps that we cart around with us," says drummer Adam Hartling. "Our goal as a small band has always been to make a big sound. To sonically make an impact. In terms of amplifiers, we have reached the limit of what is a manageable power and size. So to celebrate the release of our album,"—which is not in surround—"we decided to first present it and some of our favourite bands in a "wide' stereo spectrum, and second, augment some of our songs with the cinematic experience of surround."
