Bill Cutbill AMAZONAS LPs Ready To Ship
We'd just like to take a moment to thank everyone who made it out to the AMAZONAS LP release party at The Cameron House last week. Wow. It was a really special night of celebration, made possible by all the people involved including those who attended.
Our very own Provincial Parcs brought the stage to life with his incredible analogue visuals. If you've not checked it out already, listen to his debut jazz album, Scenic Equilibrium which we released last year!
Shout out to Idious Carrie, whose beautiful haunting melodies spun us right round. You can check out the most recent single here. Kiss Kali Die Die's solo performance also sent shockwaves through the atmosphere - how incredible to see such incredible performers lay it all on the line in such an intimate space.
Finally, Bill Cutbill and the Schmoozy Lighters brought the Amazon rainforest to Toronto for an hour or so, and from the feedback we've had people came away feeling something profound ~ "rise, shine, look around!"
And with that, AMAZONAS is now available on vinyl. Thanks to everyone who grabbed a record. If you didn't no fret, you can order it direct with us by messaging on Instagram @safesoundscollective for free delivery in Toronto or via bandcamp for international and Canada-wide postage. We also have a limited number of copies shipping from the UK (£20 all in), so again, get in touch with us or Bill directly to secure your copy.
This is the first ever commercial vinyl release on Safe Sounds! Don't worry, it just marks the beginning and we've got some very exciting release announcements to make in the next few weeks.

AMAZONAS Arrives Worldwide To All Platforms
Bill Cutbill's debut LP, AMAZONAS has arrived worldwide via Safe Sounds (SS108).
The album will raise money for the Rainforest Trust charity to protect threatened tropic rainforests and the species that call them home. As such, it is free to download via desktop for a limited time, at which point you will be prompted to make an optional donation.
Using our incredibly snazzy Artwork Generator (desktop only), you will also be able to create a unique version of the AMAZONAS artwork to accompany your download, consisting of photos that Cutbill took in the Amazon rainforest in September 2019.
The AMAZONAS LP features a diverse range of field recordings that Cutbill made in a threatened ecosystem. We are therefore pleased to announce the accompanying — Bill's Amazonas Sound Library — which is a free resource of over 100 natural samples recorded in the Amazon rainforest that artists can use in their creations.
These samples have been cleaned and prepared to make them suitable for musicians, filmmakers, artists and more. We hope that this resource will provide an important snapshot of the Amazon rainforest and also give comfort to people who want to immerse themselves within this lush environment, at a time when international travel is almost impossible
Remember, we must all work together to save the Amazon rainforest.
