Here is our first collaboration of many. This song features Shane Sweeney (2 cow garage) on bass and Micah Schnabel (2 cow garage) on vocals with me. This was absolutely so much fun to record with them and they will be back several times before the end of the year. The next song will feature Natey Rothacker (trainwreck, tenacious D at bonaroo ) on drums. This Tuesday we are recording one with the amazing Dane Terry on keys and vocals.
I will be hitting the road with Micah for 3 weeks in august to support ghost shirt’s first release. The CD release party will be at Rumba cafe with the release of the Hot 17 book on Friday July 9th with Envelope, Two Cow Garage, New City Gypsy, Low Men, Wing and Tusk and The Receiver. Summer is busy and awesome.
It’s been three weeks since our friend Alix Reese was tragically shot in the neck while driving on the east side. Multiple fundraisers have taken place and the support for them has been and continues to be incredible. In yet another selfless effort to raise money for medical expenses, Jacob Wooten has gathered the help of 20 local businesses and musicians to release a special limited-edition record for Alix.
The album features 15 different singles, including unreleased tracks by Phantods, Winter Makes Sailors and Wing and Tusk. Only 500 copies will be made, and 100% of the sales will be contributed to the Reese family to help pay for medical bills. The album will be released July 2nd at KOBO. Bands on the album will be performing all night. Albums will also be sold Saturday July 3rd at Skully’s Music Dinner, with Mr. Fahrenheit and The Loverboys with special guest Phantods.
Other contributors to this album include The Compressions, Karate Coyote, Saturday Giant, Sleepers Awake, Way Yes, New City Gypsy, Maza Blaska, Stretch Lefty, LES Crew, Ghost Shirt, Old Worlds and Two Cow Garage.
MP3: Single #20 – Partner
From Branden Barnett on this 52 Singles in 52 Weeks project: “I want to say how much we are loving this project. The next few songs are gonna reflect the amazing highs and lows we have all personally had recently. Bipolar rock. New genre. Thanks everybody for listening! Micah Schnabel from 2 cow will be doing some vocals soon.”
Another bit of news. Starting in June, Ghost Shirt will be recording the weekly singles with Columbus Discount Records, and CDR co-head honcho Adam Smith (AS/US, Unholy Two, not Deadsea guitarist) will be mixing them.
