AMERICA!! LOOK AWAY from yon Stupor Bowl. This promotion commotion, courtesy of Benjamin McCormick, Esq., appeared at our offices earlier today. The video is for “Dead Man’s Pose,” the lead single off Old Smokey’s debut album, “Wester Easter,” which is due out any day now (April 29, 2014 to speak specifically) as a joint release on Cloud Recordings and Gypsy Farm Records. Mr. McCormick, who has no time for such trivialities as The Facebooks, also lent his talents to the album’s artwork, for which (and for this) we at the offices of Old Smokey are eternally grateful.

Quicker than thee stench of expensive bourbon oozing out of Washington today, Elf Power releases their new record on Orange Twin / Darla. The band visited GF studio during the Summer of 2012 to track for the album, listen to the title track “Sunlight On The Moon” via soundcloud below :
and stream the entire record (for a few more days) via NPR
“[Elf Power] recorded the latest record in a variety of settings ranging from singer/songwriter Andrew Rieger’s home studio, to Athens, GA’s The Glow studio, to Lavonia, GA’s Gypsy Farm Studios, a long derelict country music theatre located in rural Georgia. Newly renovated and transformed into a recording studio, the beautiful auditorium hosted concerts from the likes of Dolly Parton, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash and George Jones throughout the 1970s and 1980s.”
