April 15, 2005. 100 Year Picnic is announcing the re-release of "As Tall As The Sky" on cdbaby.com, the premier online CD store for independent music. Visit cdbaby.com/100yearpicnic to listen to clips of all the songs, read and write reviews, or buy the CD online.
The 2005 re-release of "As Tall As The Sky" is an eclectic mix of melodic, indie-pop treasures, from the revved-up Marilyn County to the tongue-n-cheek tragedy Someone's In The House to the dark and seductive Take This Town. The clever production, sweet melodies, rich instrumentation, and big vocal harmonies become the common threads that weave these crafty tunes together--keeping it fun and fresh with each repeat listen.
Did we mention the record features over 20 of the biggest rock stars in Bloomington, Illinois? And, yes, they like The Beatles.
100 Year Picnic "As Tall As The Sky" was originally released and distributed in August 2001 at a summer picnic of close family and friends. Lucky for us, it is now being re-released to the public with 3 bonus tracks that originally appeared on an even earlier EP.
Here's what people said about that earlier EP:
