and the relatives release Green Machinery!

After almost a year in production, and the relatives release Green Machinery today. It features the incredible talents of Arlo Hall, Caitlin Rose, Tristen, Jordan Caress, Buddy Hughen, Larissa Maestro, and Dan Sommers. You can purchase the entire album digitally for $3  at their Bandcamp site. Keep in mind that the record was produced with vinyl in mind, and that the band thinks that it is the best way to hear the songs. You can buy the Limited Edition vinyl from their Bandcamp site or from Grimey’s New & Preloved Music for $10. The band plans to release 3 videos to accompany the record in the next month or so.

The Good News

A few weeks ago I got turned on to a great band from Vancouver BC, The Good News. The lead singer reminds me of Craig Finn from The Hold Steady while the music is some solid kick ass pop. Driving songs with super hooky choruses are just a couple of this group’s strengths.

Here are a couple of my favorite songs:

The Good News – Backstage Underage

Hopefully I’ll be able to catch one of their shows when I’m in Vancouver later this summer.

(ps While looking for a pic of the band, I came across this blog post which had posted the same songs as I have here. Funny and coincidental, but I swear I picked these out of the 2 EPs I got.  I guess we just have similar taste :) The video I did find there.)

Tristen news

Tristen has been hitting the road hard leading up to her LP release. She recently completed a northeastern US tour with a stop at NXNE in Toronto. Check out this video from the tour:

The collection of songs she made in her Nashville apartment is also available at Bandcamp now, where you can preview or support by purchase.

Her studio LP should be coming out very soon….. patience people, patience. It’s gonna be worth it.

Record Store Day / New Bows and Arrows track

Tomorrow is April 17th and that means it’s Record Store Day. We think you should scoot your tush on down to Grimey’s and pick up some rad tuneage. They’re gonna have sales, bands playing, beer, and all kind of good times.

We recommend you get there a little before 1 PM and check out Bows and Arrows. We’ve seen them a couple of times and they’re really good. Pick up their brand new 7″ Let’s Take On the Night while you’re at it. Here’s the opening track from the record.

new music! holly house & american songwriter magazine

Back in August, American Songwriter asked Holly House to participate in their “On My Deathbed” contest. Each band in Holly House was asked to record the song they would like to hear on their deathbed.

On September 20, 2009, all five bands piled into Eastwood Salon for a marathon day of recording. Steve Martin was at the helm pushing the faders (and he did a marvelous job). Beer was drank, pizza was eaten, and jams were had. For 7 straight hours everyone put their nose to the grindstone whilst plucking and vocalizing. At the end of the day, all were exhausted but pleased with the results.

And now, without further ado….. here are the tracks:

and the relatives update

this is just to give you fine folks an update on the status of and the relatives:

we’ve been in the studio for a while now working on demos for our upcoming LP. we’ve got about 15 in the can and want to get 4 or 5 more. once we’ve got about 20, we’ll start arranging the best bunch for the album. look for a demo to “leak” in the next week or so.

it’s been taking us a little longer than we expected to get the demos done because we got caught up in the 8 off 8ths that the nashville cream ran in july at mercy lounge. members of and the relatives played in 3 out of the 4 nights. needless to say, despite it being an awesome experience, we’re kind of sick of learning cover songs.

patrick and andrew were also on hand to sing vocals with the features for their lake fever session. here’s a teaser for the video with more to follow soon:

also, we just added a show at the 5 spot september 18th for out the other‘s birthday party! it’s gonna be stupid fun so be there!

in case you missed the previous demos, here they are again:
