To our faithful listeners,

We've decided to formally shutdown thesixtyone.com -- our servers will go offline at midnight, May 1st 2017.

Artist tipping and music purchases will be functional until then, so please spend any remaining credits by month's end. 
A final payment will be made to artists following the shutdown.

thesixtyone was our baby for most of our twenties. We're incredibly sorry we weren't able to keep things going in the 
right direction.

2007-2017

Thank you for being a part of it.

Farewell,

James Miao & Samuel Hsiung

Enter Marek Tyler (drums and vocoder/samples), childhood friend from P.A. Sask. who had been chasing sounds and tails around the northern-western regions of Canada with moderate success in each department. He made the drums ring out live and organically and made AASound System into a live and breathing sound machine.

Years pass along with incarnations of the band and songs, songs that range, by the way, from tree-
planting anthems to drunken-folk-fest kickers to contemplative late-night sobbers and forest-fire-
survival rockers.

Then enters one Lane Arndt (bass/keys/vocals), a refugee of musical academia and free-jazz guitar
