Carlos Forster “Family Trees” To Be Released 7/19

Former ‘for Stars’ front man releases album with M Ward as producer and collaborator, featuring Rachel Blumberg and Jonathan Richman as guests.

It started out as a way of simply getting together. Old college friends, Carlos Forster and Matt Ward began looking for opportunities to connect on weekends. Scattered over several years going all the way back to 2003, Forster spent a number of weekends in the Pacific Northwest with Ward, hiking and swimming in destinations like The Columbia Gorge and Sandy River, between leisurely recording Forster’s songs.

    Garnering well over one million views in the first 3 days, Loch Lomond was pleased to be asked personally by Danny to include music at the top of this video.  Youtube videos featuring the song also added tens of thousands of views in the same time period.  Consider supporting the band with a purchase:

    “Wax & Wire” is on the Night Bats EP, available in the HUSHshop.

    Kele Goodwin – “Hymns” Sampler Mix

    “Though he’s a man of many stories, Kele Goodwin’s offering to the public resides in his beautiful folk music—though “beautiful” doesn’t quite seem to capture the essence of his creations. Listening to Goodwin’s “Hymns,” one can almost hear Alaska’s ferocious alpine peaks, rugged with such exquisite allure, upon which he spent many days of his youth.” –The Vanguard

    “Although the focus is on Goodwin’s lightly picked guitar and Drake-like voice, contributions from singers Alela Diane and Laura Gibson lend to its gorgeously haunted sound.” – Willamette Week

    “Goodwin set out to record this album with Sean Ogilvie, of the Portland band Musée Méchanique, four years ago. “But,” says Goodwin, “a bunch of life happened.”  Read about Kele’s life and music in this Oregonian article

    What better opportunity to present this entire concert watchable in a YouTube playlist from the vault to give you an idea of the dynamism of this band:

    And if that wasn’t enough, the band is graciously offering up a free remix EP with a twist:  each distinguished remixer was only given one ‘stem’ (instrument track) from the recording to work with.  They also never heard the finished studio version.  It’s a sonic journey.

    Peter Broderick – ‘How they Are’ Complete Original Performance

    It’s rare that musicians are able to upload video of their entire album as it was recorded in the studio, but an attainable goal when performed ‘live’ without overdubs. In this case, video illuminates some aspects of the performance that our ears might take for granted.  For example: simultaneous guitar and piano playing on “Guilt’s Tune”.

    On the heels of recording the detailed, epic followup to Home, Peter took some downtime in Oregon on the mend (after knee surgery) to write a collection of songs and record them one Spring day at the Type Foundry Studio in Portland.  Seven of those songs, presented here, comprise the entirety of How they Are, out last week on HUSH / Bella Union.

    HUSH artists cover Led Zeppelin for compilation

    Laura Gibson, Loch Lomond, Nick Jaina,  Jeff London, Super XX Man, Adam Selzer (Norfolk & Western) Dave Depper (Loch Lomond, Norfolk, Blanket Music, etc.) Amy Annelle, Chad Crouch (Podington Bear, Blanket Music) and many other friends and family have contributed to the sprawling From The Land Of Ice And Snow: The Songs Of Led Zeppelin 2xCD Comipilation on Jealous Butcher Records.

    It’s now available for pre-order here.

    It started out as a fantasy.
    Rob (Jealous Butcher), Matt (Ward) and John (King) were sitting around the basement in the evening working on cover art for a project, espousing their love and respect for Led Zeppelin in their formative musical years. And wouldn’t it be nice to put together a tribute release featuring friends both near and afar, not being a “who’s who” sort of tribute, but rather a “community” inspired collection of Zeppelin songs.
    One thing led to another and before he knew it, Rob was sending out a missive through his network, calling for submissions, wondering if anyone would even be interested. At the outset there was no real concern for pedigree, or professionalism, in the traditional manner, the only stipulation was that the tracks had to be good.
    Fast-forward 6 years, 50 tracks, countless hours of recording, tracking, editing, mastering, talking, drinking, and thinking about all things Led Zeppelin. We now present you, dear reader, with the body of work. From The Land Of Ice And Snow: The Songs Of Led Zeppelin
