What does new Mad Caddies music sound like after a seven year gap? Head to Alternative Press to find out! They’re premiering the new Caddies song, “Brand New Scar,” from the band’s much anticipated new full length, Dirty Rice, out May 13th and available for pre-order now! The Mad Caddies have 2014 dialed in: new record, massive touring and no signs of slowing down. Enjoy!
Pre-order the new Mad Caddies album — Dirty Rice—now! It’s their first album in seven years, and having had the pleasure of listening to it, we think it was worth the wait. And speaking of long wait times, as a special bonus to you dedicated Caddies vinyl fans, we’re pressing up their last album—Keep It Going—on vinyl for the first time ever, and you can pre-order that now as well!
It’s official, Joey Cape’s full back catalog is out today! Order Joey’s first two proper solo albums, Bridge and Doesn’t Play Well With Others. His collaboration with Jon Snodgrass (Drag the River) on acoustic covers of their respective bands’ songs, Liverbirds. Joey’s full-band take on a selection of previously acoustic songs, Joey Cape’s Bad Loud: Volume One. And lastly, his final collaboration with Tony Sly, Scorpios, also featuring Snodgrass and Brian Wahlstrom. You can order the Joey Cape bundle here, or individual records here.
Once again, we are joining forces with the illustrious Spike Slawson on his new project: UKE-HUNT! We’ll release their debut 7", The Prettiest Star on April 29th and release a full length later in the year. The single is the first taste of Spike’s latest cover band featuring Joe Raposo (Lagwagon/RKL) on upright bass and Randy Burk (Filthy Thieving Bastards) on percussion. What started as Spike simply learning and arranging some of his favorite classic songs for the ukulele on his own, eventually evolved into added musicians and a layered patchwork of ukulele, saxophone, glockenspiel, stylophone, organ, standup bass, and all manner of percussive elements. The Prettiest Star features two songs: the A-side is from the upcoming full length and the B-side, “Ben” (Michael Jackson), is exclusive to this 45. Spike adds, “The album track is a love letter from David Bowie to Marc Bolan, or so I recently heard. Our rendition is my love letter to myself. While I fear and despise rodents, I love the B-side and cry like a little girl whenever I hear it. R.I.P. Michael.”
