"We made a record last spring that was slated to come out this summer on Capitol Records," reads a post on Reeve Oliver's MySpace page. "This is now no longer the case.... Capitol's parent company EMI decided to scale down both of its main labels, which are Capitol and Virgin, into one new company called the Capitol Music Group. They also drastically scaled down their band roster. The only bands that remain on what is left of the label are bands that were already a success, as major labels have little interest in trying to break new bands anymore.

"At first this was kind of a total drag for all of us in the Reeve camp, as you can imagine. But the good news in all of this is that we ended up owning this record. We will be putting out the new Reeve Oliver record ourselves. Soon." Two songs from the aborted Capitol album are posted on MySpace: "Sunshine" and "Cheat Me Slowly."
