Licensing deal – availability in iTunes, Spotify and much more!

Well, an update was long overdue, so here we go.

FOR GREATER GOOD is proud to have an agreement with CLUSTER PARK.
What does that mean for you, our dear fans?
Well, Cluster-Park, founded in 2017, is specialised in global music distribution (digital, vinyl, CD), licensing, publishing and synchronisation. Additionally Cluster-Park offers services in digital marketing, media promotion, legal advice, catalogue management and artist & repertoire support.
In practice, this means that in the first place we will be available on a lot of digital platforms.
There was the Bandcamp page of course, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Now, the deal with Cluster Park will see us pop up on iTunes, Deezer, Spotify and many more. All our albums (5 up till now) are available for listening, buying and downloading. Click on the source of your choice in this post and bam, you are there! If more are added, we will keep you all updated.
Ain’t that great?

If that’s not enough already, we now also have a dedicated YouTube channel. Here you can listen to all the albums and songs as well, and give them a big thumbs up. It is also very convenient to spread the word around on Facebook and the like.

As a fan, you can really help us by listening to our music, liking, sharing and reviewing. It won’t take much of your time, but it would be a big help for us.

Thanks in advance and enjoy!

A word about side projects…

There’s life outside For Greater Good of course.
Izzy and samdevos are busy with some other projects as well, so maybe it’s time to highlight some of them, too.

Detour Doom Project is a darkjazz/ambient project where Izzy plays trumpets and flugelhorn on their new CD “Nothing Remains Of Us”, and it got a very nice review in Belgium’s leading underground magazine Dark Entries.

Read all about it here! (review in Dutch)

Another project Izzy is involved with trumpet-wise is The Sarto Klyn V, Ian Ferguson’s pet project, which is a bit more smooth jazz than Detour Doom Project.

DREAMWASH, project by samdevos – EP out this week!

As some of you may know, samdevos is a busy man. Not only is he busy with all things FOR GREATER GOOD, he’s also a live musician with Vomito Negro, does nice things with SwanDream and still finds the time, inspiration and energy to make his own DREAMWASH sounds, an experimental electronic-ambient adventure that is really worth your attention.

And lots of people appreciate it, so it seems, because it landed him a deal with Deaf Owl Communication, the label founded by Roel Butzen (Bonzai Records, Violent Wake-up and others) and housing some other memorable new acts like VV303 (which you may recognize from the super remix he did for For Greater Good recently) and SteMaTik !

The first DREAMWASH EP will be out on November 29, 2012 and is titled “Double Sided E.P.”, containing the songs ‘Double Sided’, ‘Dark Secret’ and ‘Atmosphere Is For Breathing’.

Check out the Deaf Owl Communication site for audioclips, and in the meantime, watch the teaser trailer!

Review of “The All4s Sessions” on FestivalBlog.be

Reviews of “The All4s Sessions” are coming in, the first one is from the Belgian FestivalBlog.be, where Erik gives the release a big thumbs up! :)

The review is in Dutch, but we were so generous to translate in English… enjoy!

“For Greater Good consists of Izzy (compositions, synth, vocals) and Sam (synth, noise, loops, vocals) and bring a kind of ambient that takes you to higher atmospheres and lets you relax completely, a fact already proven in 2008 when they delivered their debut ‘For Greater Good’. This latest album is a compilation of songs recorded during a live session in “Kessel @ Veranda”.

For Greater Good also teams up frequently with other artists. Not only on this album: in 2010 they already collaborated with Japanese cult writer Kenji Siratori. Time and again you’ll be immersed in an intimate atmosphere by the use of soundscapes, and a dark sense of calm overtakes you. Things can become very intense, a fact already proven several times on stage.

On this album you can truly ‘feel’ the music to the depths of your veins, not solely by the contribution of Izzy and Sam themselves, but the exquisite soft violin background sounds pretty heavenly thanks to Evan Roy; not to mention Jonas G. providing additional sampling to complete the picture. The best way to listen to this album is to close your eyes and let yourself drift on the gentle waves of the sea. It’s actually a good form of meditation which we can strongly recommend.

Ambient music is a genre that is perfectly suited for the latter, and For Greater Good has managed to bring it to a higher dimension. Beautiful, intense and intimately enjoyable!”

Thanks Erik!

And of course you can still buy this album at “The All4s Sessions” page on Bandcamp.

“For Greater Good & Friends – The All4s Sessions” out now!

“FOR GREATER GOOD & FRIENDS- The All4s Sessions” is out now and available on Bandcamp!

Years ago, we did a jamsession at Veranda – Kessel, Belgium with the FGG core members Izzy and samdevos plus some guests; Evan Roy on violins and Jonas G on additional sampling. The 3-hour jam was recorded live to stereo track that we cut down to a 1-hour ambient electroacoustic session without any further editing and was named “The All4s Sessions”.

You can download it here: http://forgreatergood.bandcamp.com/album/the-all4s-sessions

We consider this a conceptual album, so it is only available as full album download, You can listen to the tracks separately, tho.

The price for this album is 1 euro, but when you think it is worth a lot more, you can enter any amount above 1 euro as well, which will be highly appreciated by us! :)

Enjoy and share this release!

 

Happy 2012… with a special gift for you!

FOR GREATER GOOD wishes you all a Happy New Year and a healthy and music-filled 2012!

The album “FOR GREATER GOOD & FRIENDS – The All4s Sessions” will soon be available on Bandcamp!

Previous to the release, we would like to give away the track “No End” totally for FREE, to listen to in the drowsy aftermaths of New Year’s Eve. It will be available from January 1st till January 8th 2012, then the full All4s Sessions will be put online.

You can find the download here: http://forgreatergood.bandcamp.com/album/the-all4s-sessions

There’s no end louder than the end of 2011… Happy 2012!
