Double Exposure 7″ Series – VOL 1 – Franz Nicolay & Frank Turner

September 6, 2012

We’re kicking off our new Double Exposure 7″ series . The basic gist is this… 2 of our favorite artists on each record and both of them are covering the same band/artist.  We’re super proud of the first installment which features two amazing musicians. On the A side is Franz Nicolay (of World Inferno/Friendship Society, The Hold Steady, Against Me!, and collaborator with Amanda Palmer & Leftover Crack etc etc etc) and on the B-side and across the pond is Frank Turner (you might remember him from Million Dead, and singing on the opening ceremonies for the Olympics). Franz & Frank chose to both deliver their own renditions of songs by Engish Playwrite/Singer/Actor/Composer Sir Noël Peirce Coward. The record will be available at the FEST in Gainesville this October, but we’ll be posting a pre-order up in our webstore for those who can’t make it down to Florida.

We are already hard at work setting up additional volumes of this series with old friends, and old favorites… stay tuned for more info!

Why is the World in Love again? Why are We Marching Hand in Hand?

January 11, 2012

Ok anyone who knows me personally knows that I’m a  HUGE life long TMBG fan.  I spent the better part of my youth going to their shows, and driving around the state listening to all of the albums on cassette in my friend Dave’s car. They were responsible for me falling in love with underground music, and were the soundtrack for an absolutely amazing time in my life, and I met so many friends because of them. If there ever was a dream project for us to be involved with, it would be this….. So you can imagine how excited we are to release, for the first time ever on vinyl.. the first two full band TMBG records “John Henry” and “Factory Showroom”.  Expect to see Factory Showroom available in March, and John Henry sometime this summer!!!!
