World premiere: Abandon Jalopy – “All the Way” video + podcast interview

We’re very excited and honored to be premiering “All the Way”, the first video from Abandon Jalopy’s Death & Joy, which will officially be released on February 14.

Abandon Jalopy’s Brad Smith spent a few hours on the phone with me a few weeks ago, talking about his new record and answering some questions about Blind Melon, the band that gave Brad his start. I edited it down (the call lasted 2.5 hours!) to about 40 minutes for a new podcast that, at least for this episode, is called “Behind the Cover”.

    Great interview Chip! Thanks for putting it together and thanks to Brad for his time. I am on my third listen of Death and Joy and I know it will be in the rotation for a long time, there is a lot of musical nuggets in there to digest.

    Wow that was just a great interview Chip. Such a great way to kick off a series. Thank you so much for putting this together with Brad. I am a long time Melonhead – it makes me smile & nod along while listening. It’s cool to hear the breakdown and perspective of each track. Very cool. I’ve listened to the album a few times through now. And the video is rad too. Hazzah!
