Here’s a fresh joint we just made down in Nashville…
Whenever I’m in Athens, GA or Laura is in Chicago we try to record something together. Last time it was loops for the Orange Twin Records‘ Handy Jam app, before that it was clarinet tracks for Tired Ghostly Town. This time we snuck away before sound check on Neutral Milk Hotel / Elf Power tour in Chicago and recorded a Carter Family song.
Daytrotter had us back for a second session and declared our “Welcome to Daytrotter” track the best in the sessions’ history!
In the hip hop tradition mix-tapes let MCs and DJs cut loose, collaborate, and get hilarious. This is the intent of my new mix tape series, Al Scorch’ Moving Company. Volume 1 has Ryan Koenig from Pokey LaFarge, Marissa Paternoster from Screaming Females, and Shell from Shellshag. Charlie Universe engineered it and made the beats. I hope you enjoy it!
CrackerFarm came by while Paul and I were practicing and shot this video. Please enjoy!
