After releasing his debut solo effort in January, senior GFR member Matthew Caleb Garrison (Marble Soup) embarked on a European tour as the bassist for Elf Power and upon his return to the states has now issued a brand new single titled “Kerosene”.
Venturing from previous Marble Soup releases, this zero-gravity tune boasts an intergalactic vibe brought on by Garrison’s keying of the Rhodes piano met with solid backing courtesy of drummer Cody Martin, complimented with the masterful guitar work of Jake Stargel, finally baked in a dash of star-dust provided by Zeke Sayer on vocoder.

Using the alias “Marble Soup” local Georgia native Matthew Garrison released his self-titled debut EP last month as download, stream and limited edition compact disc. The EP marks the first new physical release on the Gypsy Farm label since 2014 and is the result of several recording sessions spaced between Lula and Lavonia, Georgia dating back to 2015.
Engineered by Jake Stargel, the takes were then mixed at Gypsy Farm Studio before final mastering at Chase Park Transduction. After touring the U.S. twice in 2017 with Elf Power, Garrison enlisted the help of Larry Choskey (of Nate and the Nightmares) for art direction and cover design, then set the EP release date for Jan 2018 and it has met with positive reviews since it’s release :
“Clocking in with a mere four songs, this little record does a fine job of exhibiting Garrison’s songwriting, which harkens back to NRBQ, a little Randy Newman and perhaps a slight amount of Gram Parsons to boot” – Gordon Lamb – “Threats and Promises” – Flagpole Magazine
“With it’s ominous beat, Marble Soup’s ‘Janet Lorraine’ solicits the listener immediately to a soundscape where time stands before inevitably running out” – WJAY – GF Press Editor
