Kevin Morby & Waxahatchee Team Up for Two Jason Molina Covers

Stream and/or Purchase “Farewell Transmission/The Dark Don’t Hide It”

Kevin Morby & Waxahatchee, coming off a stellar 2017 with the release of critically acclaimed records (City Music and Out In The Storm, respectively), team up for an homage to Jason Molina on this digital 7”, covering two Molina classics from the artist’s critical and commercial zenith: “Farewell Transmission” off his monumental work Magnolia Electric Co. and “The Dark Don’t Hide It” off the critically acclaimed What Comes After The Blues. Proceeds from this release will go to the charity Molina himself had history with, MusiCares®. Morby talks about the collaboration below:

“My love for Jason Molina began only a few years ago. I had overlooked him for years, too overwhelmed by his many monikers and sprawling catalogue. Then on a European tour in 2016 our driver put on Magnolia Electric Company and my mind was blown – and so began my obsession with the man and his music. A few months after hearing him I was on tour with Waxahatchee where Katie and I bonded over our mutual love for Molina, and we got the idea to record two of our favorite Songs: Ohia songs – which is what you have here today; Farewell Transmission b/w The Dark Don’t Hide It.

These were recorded in Upstate New York with my live band at my drummer’s studio, The Chicken Shack, with both Katie and I splitting vocals duties. We would record all day, eating eggs from all the chickens running around, taking breaks to read old articles and watch live footage of Jason and his band. He’s a true inspiration and there’s no other songwriter or vocalist quite like him. We are deeply honored to be able to sing his songs, and we do hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed creating them. The cover art was done by William Schaff, who is responsible for the iconic Magnolia Electric Co. album art. All proceeds of the digital sales will go to MusiCares® – an organization that provides support and community services to musicians in need of medical, personal & financial assistance – and also helped Jason in his struggle with addiction, as well as paid to have a polyp removed from my vocal chords in 2014. A truly wonderful cause.”

Peace and Happy New Year,
Kevin Morby, 2018

Release Day: Strand of Oaks Releases Limited ‘Harder Love’

Stream and/or Purchase Harder Love

What could be better than starting your weekend with a new Strand of Oaks record? Today, Strand of Oaks releases Harder Love, a collection of Tim Showalter’s unreleased, original recordings for the album Hard Love. If you missed it earlier, Tim had a lil’ listening party on Facebook live – we’re embedding it below for your viewing/listening pleasure.

Pairing the earliest versions tracks from Hard Love with previously-unreleased material (including some tracks deemed “too weird” for the official release), Harder Love pushes Showalter’s sound to a stranger, rawer place. In many ways, the release serves as the tripped out, spiritual brother to its predecessor. The 12” physical version of Harder Love is limited to a 500 pressing and features unused and alternative takes from Hard Love. Harder Love is available digitally worldwide, with two additional bonus tracks available only on the digital version. Harder Love is also available physically via retailers in limited territories (US and Benelux).

Khruangbin Present Video For New Single “Friday Morning” :: Announce Spring North American Tour

Pre-order Con Todo El Mundo

On January 26th, Texan globetrotting trio Khruangbin will release their sophomore album, Con Todo El Mundo. Continuing their world music pedigree, the band has expanded their global influences on this record from Thai funk to sounds of Spain and the Middle East, particularly Iran, from the 1960’s, 1970’s and beyond. Today, they are pleased to present the video for their new single, “Friday Morning.” A song about “jumping into love,” “Friday Morning” skips between laid back Isley Brothers-esque vibes via delicate tempo changes into gentle hymnal passages.

“‘Friday Morning’ is a love song, written and recorded at our remote farm in Burton, Texas where we got our start,” says the band. “To commemorate the song, we asked our closest friends and family to record messages of love to each of us. The music video is a portrait of the band hearing these audio recordings for the first time, capturing on film the emotions one feels when they hear just how loved they are; a poignant and heartfelt expression in a time where, as a collective whole, we need to hear and express love more than ever.”

This spring, Khruangbin will embark on a massive tour of North America in support of Con Todo El Mundo. Kicking off with three nights at Lodge Room in Los Angeles, March 22-24, the band — formed of Laura Lee on bass, Mark Speer on guitar, and Donald “DJ” Johnson on drums — will head southwest through the southern US, up the east coast, and make their way back through the midwest and back down the west coast. All shows are on-sale now and a full list of dates is below.

Watch the New Video for Marlon Williams’ “What’s Chasing You”

New Zealand’s Marlon Williams will release his sophomore album, Make Way For Love, on February 16th. After presenting the “ethereal rocker” (American Songwriter) “Nobody Gets What They Want Anymore,” a duet with Aldous Harding, Williams now shares “What’s Chasing You” and its accompanying video directed by Martin Sagadin.

Williams explains, “It’s an earnest question. It’s the only thing I’ve ever really wanted to know of another human being. Like all good questions, it’s childishly simple. We all want to live inside the fears of the ones we love, if not to dispel them then at the very least to understand, empathize and let’s be honest, compare hands. I’m not convinced truly understanding another’s woes would really bring anyone happiness, but I am a nosey boy. What’s chasing you?”

This year Williams will take his live show to 46 cities around the world for his largest ever headline tour. All dates are below.
