So, a few folks have been asking about FHJ, so here is what we know (directly from the band I might add)... Five Horse Johnson are currently taking a break from touring and are busy working on material for their next full length album. The band will enter the studio sometime in 2009 when all of the jams are ready for the recording studio. There will also be a greatest hits album called "Sweetwater Gasoline" that is being released in Australia only and will consist of tracks from their following albums: "Double Down", "Fat Black Pussy Cat", "The No.6 Dance", "The Last Men On Earth", and "The Mystery Spot".
We are just about to send the new albums from Giant Brain and Sons Of Otis to the plant. We should have them back late January, so save some of your Hoilday cash for those two recordings. Between the both of them, there is well over two hours of heavy music and arty jams to help cure your Winter doldrums. Giant Brain's "Thorn Of Thrones" is currently available on Itunes, and Sons Of Otis "Exiled" should be up on the Itunes Store next week (we hope).
Solace will be wrapping up the vocals & mixing on their fourthcoming album "A.D." sometime over the next month at Mad Oak Studios in Allston, MA. The band has a deadline to meet if they want to have copies of their new album at SXSW, where the will be headling the Small Stone Showcase at the Room 710 on Friday March, 20th 2009. Not to mention, we have the majority of the finished artwork in our hands, so things are looking good. You can most likely plan on having "A.D." ready for mass consumption by March!
Attention Los Natas, where is your new album? You guys have not checked in with us since your last trip to Europa. Anyway, we hope to be releasing the new album from Los Natas somtime during the first half of 2009. When we finally hear from them, we will let you know an exact release date.
Also on the horizon in 2009, new albums from The Brought Low, Sasquatch, Shame Club, Valis, Red Giant, Mos Generator, Tia Carrera, Throttlerod, and possibly a few acts that you have not even heard of yet. Hell, maybe we can get Dixie Witch to fire up their new one as well...
