"Other Side" (MP3 + JPG) // West Coast Tour
Thank you to everyone who has backed the project so far! In just ten days we're nearing 50 backers and over 75% funded. Your support is inspiring.
Of course, our goal is largely a symbolic number (33/45rpm). It is not actually enough to cover the bare minimum costs of manufacturing, let alone shipping, art commissions, and the actual making of quality recordings, but we were always going to invest in the project too along with you. The more we reach through this campaign, the better our LP and Flexi-Disc releases will be. So with 3 weeks to go, we need you to spread the Lame word!
If you share the mp3, please also include + attribute the above artwork by Sarah Hotchkiss. I can't wait to see this spinning around on the turntable at 45 RPM!
We recorded "Other Side" with Matt Tong at his Exploded Drawing home/studio in Bed-Stuy. This is a song we'd tried recording ourselves before, and with Matt it finally clicked. We like his style, and we have a few more songs that we'd like to record with him once he gets another break from the Bloc Party world tour!
Tomorrow, Lame Drivers resume our coastal tour with the Woolen Men [tourdates].
Oh and we got lots more new jams to share with you soon, Lame backers!
For now, some people are just discovering our old recordings. For example, check out this awesome review of Cruisin' Classics 2003-2010 at KFJC. The freeform beacon of Los Altos Hills will be one of the stops along our West Coast tour.
It feels like we're on the right track with this project, but Lame Drivers can't do it without you. Thanks again for your support!
