D-Sisive has been pretty ubiquitous as of late… okay, ever since he arose from a hiatus three years ago. The dude is ridiculously prolific, having written four albums and an EP in that time.
His latest is a sequel to 2009′s Jonestown, and once again it’s coming at us as a free download. You can now grab Jonestown 2: Jimmy Go Bye Bye over at D-Sisive’s Bandcamp page.
As you may recall, D-Sisive was in the studio with MuchMusic’s own Damian Abraham live on The Wedge two weeks ago. The result of that collaboration, which also featured producer Muneshine and F**ked Up drummer Jonah Falco, a song called “Wannabe” is featured on Jonestown 2.
D-Sisive also penned a note to his fans, introducing the record:
My new album, Jonestown 2.Jimmy Go Bye Bye, is finally here. It’s the album I’ve always wanted to make. Instead of contrived quotes and a list of the past years achievements, I’d rather thank the people who helped make this album the masterpiece that it is. I apologize for using such an arrogant adjective, but that’s how I feel about this LP, therefore I retract my apology. ;)
If it weren’t for Muneshine, Darryl & Janusz (Urbnet), Timbuktu, Ghettosocks, Norman Krates, Adam Bomb, Lil’ Jaz and Pink Eyes, Jonestown 2 would not be. Two failed release dates and a number of re-writes were the results of insecurity, developed from the response received from my last LP, Vaudeville. It held me back from releasing this project. I felt I lost it.
Then I wrote ‘If I Live To See Tomorrow’. The single that brought everyone back that I lost with Vaudeville. Muneshine and I hit the studio, and the people I mentioned above bent over backwards to help me create this record.
This isn’t much of a press release. It also isn’t a reach for pity.
“Take Jonestown, take it all…Take my catalogue, I don’t want your cash : Just listen to the songs..That’s all I ask : I’m tired of writing for the walls…” -If I Live To See Tomorrow
I hope you likey.
