Best of FMA 2013 from Happy Puppy Records

So this is the first year that I've actually kept track of which were my favourite netlabel and Creative Commons releases of 2013 (other than the ones released by Happy Puppy, that is) and also added them to the Free Music Archive.

All of these got played a lot, and were mostly discovered while putting togethet the CCmixtapes series earlier this year.

The Return of Uncle Neptune

Uncle Neptune's old timey ditties have been affectionaly described as a cross between Kermit the Frog and Tiny Tim. After a long 7 year absence from the web, Happy Puppy Records is re-issuing the first Uncle Neptune album with the permission of the Uncle Neptune estate, with further albums in the catalog to come.

After releasing his first album in 2001, Uncle Neptune received some notable national attention thanks to Richardson's Roundup on CBC Radio One. Then in 2005 the world found out about the wonderful music thanks to a mention on the popular site Boing Boing

Uncle Neptune retired from the internet in 2006, never to be heard from since. We thought this was a terrible shame that nearly a generation of internet users never got to hear any of his delightful and timeless songs (save for one track appearing on a Kazoomzoom compilation).

But recently Lee Rosevere at Happy Puppy tracked down sources close to Uncle Neptune (thanks Billyblob!) and we are preparing to release as much as Neptune's music as possible, beginning with his debut album.

Please enjoy this music and share it with your friends, and if you do, it would make the world a better place if you would visit Jamie Ward's bandcamp page and support him and his current projects, and it would make Uncle Neptune very happy.

Manos: The Remix of Fate

Manos: The Remix of Fate is still seeking submissions for their October compilation! Recently, Benjamin Solovey found a pristine work-print of the infamous bad film and has restored it for upcoming release on Blu-Ray and DVD. He also put up the soundtrack for free (pay what you wish) download on Bandcamp and the Free Music Archive under a BY-NC-SA license, which includes music cues and dialogue. 

Happy Puppy Records would like to celebrate this release by asking the Creative Commons music community to download the soundtrack and remix it! Any genre, any style... just no explicit adult material please. By submitting, you agree to license your track under the same BY-NC-SA license. If you include outside samples in your remix, please ensure they are of a similar sharable license.

Send your remix via dropbox, wetransfer, soundcloud or email if it's less than 25 mbs. 320 Mp3s or FLACs only. Deadline for entries is October 1, 2013 so we can have it ready for Halloween, which will please the Master!
