Proceeds of Gypsy Farm’s latest release, GF012 – Tape Feed, Vol 1, have secured over 1,146 meals through donations to Feeding America, a nonprofit organization networking with around 200 Food Banks throughout the United States.
This of course, was made possible, not only by Feeding America’s excellent farmer-food bank relationship, but by you, the listener. Thank you for your support!
Tape Feed, Vol 1 is a cassette that features exclusive tracks from Vincas, Sea Of Dogs, Old Smokey, The Humms & many more.
With a digital version included, the tape is currently available & proceeds of all purchases will be donated to Feeding America!
After last year’s successful donation to the local food bank, we staffed our producer Willie Shears with the task of assembling years worth of various recordings from deep within the Gypsy Farm vault into a tangible compilation for your enjoyment but also, the benefit of Feeding America, a nonprofit organization networking with 200 food banks.
The result is Tape Feed, Vol: 1. Each limited edition cassette is a direct, real-time copy of the original hi-fee-fi-fo-fum master recordings and even include a digital download to boot.
With appearances by Old Smokey, Vincas, Nate & the Nightmares, the Humms, Sea of Dogs, Sweet Auburn String Band, 432 Sessions, Pine Tar Rage, Koko Beware & the Haunted Head.
Shears’ selection of GF recordings span a whole decade from 2010 through 2020, and all in all recorded at GF-HQ with the exception of Nate & The Nightmares – Everyday recorded live at Georgia theatre in 2014 while opening for Charles Bradley.
With exclusive tracks like Vincas – Phantasma (Live at Gypsy Farm) and the traditional bluegrass arrangements of 432 sessions – Buffalo Skinners (Jed & Harry Clark, Cory Walker & Jeff Partin) you can rest assured that it’s going to be an eclectic sum of tracks.
Enjoy Tape Feed, Vol 1 and simultaneously help deflect hunger, food waste & climate change by donating to the local food bank.
Coming into sight for the month of March, we see the return of Brant Duncan’s Carolina musical troop, known as The Haunted Head. Their latest production, a song titled “Come Home” surely encompasses everything you’ve come to know and appreciate about the band’s somber side.
Stream and share “Come Home” by the Haunted Head and support your favorite local artists, near and far this Friday (March 5th) by participating in this year’s second Bandcamp Friday.
Also seeing light today for the first time in over twenty years, is a collection of four-track recordings by Duncan’s former associates, Unabnormal, a 90s-era Clemson/Athens band fronted by Georgolina’s own concierge of portastudio saturation, Thom Strickland, who claims that the cassette tape was just recently re-discovered, under his bed.
The collection is called Diving Bell/Wishing Well, and along with a growing assortment of other titles, is out now, courtesy of Strickland’s “Brown Paper” record label, that isn’t.
