Dromedary and Dromedary bands have been all over the place the last few weeks. Check out what people are saying!
The release of Footstone’s _Lippy_ has generated quite a bit of interest.
The _Aquarian Weekly_ wrote a blurb on the Dromedary and _Lippy_ re-launch, as well as the Footstone/FRC/Dark Brothers show at Maxwell’s. You can read that “here”:http://www.theaquarian.com/2010/02/02/dromedary-records-getting-over-the-hump/
Jay Lustig of the _Star-Ledger_ in New Jersey wrote a nice piece on Dromedary, Footstone, _Lippy_, and _Make The Load Lighter_ that can be found “here”:http://www.nj.com/entertainment/music/index.ssf/2010/02/dromedary_records_jersey_indie.html

On March 1, the track “Toothpick” from the _Lippy_ CD was offered by eMusic as their *Free Daily Download*. Right after that, the track “Mad-G” received a ton of coverage, starting with _Brooklyn Rocks_, who offered the track for free and wrote all about Footstone “here”:http://brooklynrocks.blogspot.com/2010/03/footstone-reunites-and-reissues-1995.html

*MAKE THE LOAD LIGHTER: INDIE ROCK FOR HAITI*
Although the Haiti tragedy was two months ago, the people of Haiti still need our help. The blogosphere is well aware of this, and they’ve been kind enough to give our awesome compilation quite a bit of coverage.
Jim Testa wrote about it on the _Jersey Beat_ blog “here”:http://jerseybeat.blogspot.com/ and the Boston-based music blog Bradley’s Almanac covered it “here”:http://www.bradleysalmanac.com/ (check the Feb. 22 entry).
The Scottish indie music blog Jockrock wrote about the compilation in their “March 2 entry”:http://www.jockrock.org/news.shtml
The indie music blog “Heroes of Indie Music”:http://castleqwayr.wordpress.com/2010/02/26/make-the-load-lighter-indie-rock-for-haiti/ offered the Mommyheads’ “Spiders” as a free download, as did “The Devil Has The Best Tuna”:http://besttuna.blogspot.com/2010/02/make-load-lighter.html
“Spiders” seemed to be a popular download earlier this month, as it was also featured on the “Mad Mackerel music blog”:http://madmackerel.blogspot.com/2010/03/dromedary-records-release-indie.html and “POP! Stereo”:http://popstereo.blogspot.com/2010/03/ten-tracks-you-need-59.html
We were also mentioned on “Under The Radar”:http://www2.jpscotland.co.uk/musicblog/2010/03/newsbits-scottish-alt-awards-aberdeen.html back at the beginning of March. The Scottish indie music press have been very kind to us.
Stick around – there’s lots of stuff going on, and we’ll tell you all about it right here!
