Old Man Markley embraced the proverbial phrase, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade” while stranded in Hoboken, NJ this past winter. As days stretched into weeks, these folks utilized their time to make an awesome new video for “Too Soon For Goodnight” off their latest release, Down Side Up. Check out what the band had to say below, watch their video, and don’t miss them this weekend at the Capay Tomato Festival! Enjoy.
“In March of 2013, our trusty bus broke down in Hoboken, NJ. Shows were cancelled, tears were shed, and a few inches of snow made things look bleak. But what’s a cloud without some silver lining? While we were stranded, we hopped aboard the Yankee Ferry! There were just enough beds for all of us in the bow of the ship. Things got cozy, and then they got campy. Here’s one of our favorite new songs, performed in our favorite onesies. You can catch OMM in their onesies this weekend at the Capay Tomato Festival. It will be a day of fresh organic food followed by a night of music and camping!”

Dusk. Mist. Cemeteries. City skylines. Autumn. FEELINGS. Fleeting moments. These are some of the things that come to mind when we think of Chris McCaughan’s band, Sundowner. In addition to his work as the guitarist and singer in The Lawrence Arms, over the last seven years Chris has amassed an impressive body of work and played all over the world as Sundowner. On September 3rd, Fat will release his third studio album, Neon Fiction. This time around, Chris is once again joined by multi-instrumentalist and fellow Lawrence Arm, Neil Hennessy. The two have boldly expanded their horizons to experiment with full band instrumentations, dynamic arrangements, and stylistic departures from previous records. Together, Chris and Neil entered Atlas Studios (Alkaline Trio, The Menzingers, Masked Intruder) and crafted ten songs that feature indelible new melodies and Chris’ most personal and confident lyrics. Head over here to view his upcoming show dates and read on for a message from Chris:
Hi there. I feel like we’ve been withholding valuable information for long enough, so here are some gritty details on the new LP. Most importantly, it’s coming out just in time to be the soundtrack to your fading summer! And, secondly, I am stoked to finally share the album cover, tracklisting and the title. Yessir! My good friend, New York City-based photographer, Ben Pier, shot the cover for the record. The photo is awesome and totally captures the vibe of the album. He’s got an amazing way of seeing the world and was instrumental in helping to discover the whole aesthetic of Neon Fiction. You should go check out his work. He’s a rad photographer and an even better dude. Can’t wait for you all to hear these songs.
