HELP US RELEASE OUR NEW ALBUM - LOOK OUT MAMA
Hello everybody, this is Alynda lee Segarra from Hurray for the Riff Raff. We just finished recording our new record, Look Out Mama and we can't wait for you to hear it. It was recorded in Nashville by our good buddy Andrija Tokic of the Bomb Shelter Studio http://bombshelterstudio.com/. Andrija recorded the new Alabama Shakes record too. Andrija rules and helped us make our best record yet.
Since we're going to be releasing the album ourselves (except for in the UK where our friends at Loose Music will be releasing the album - UK RESIDENTS - PLEASE SEE THE NOTE TO YOU AT THE VERY BOTTOM), we need a bunch of money to do it right this time around. That includes paying for:
-The recording, mixing, and mastering costs
-Pressing up CDs in a real digipack with a big fold-out poster
-Pressing up vinyl with a big ole GATEFOLD AND POSTER!
-Hiring a professional graphic designer to make it all look great
-Hiring a publicist so more people can hear about the band
-Shooting a video of the title track
-And all kinds of other costs that will certainly pop up
Just for this Kickstarter, we recorded an entire album of cover songs called My Dearest Darkest Neighbor. I made the artwork for the covers CD by hand and will be signing and numbering each one. The ONLY way to get this album is through Kickstarter. Here's the tracklist:
1. Delta Momma Blues (Townes Van Zandt) 2. Fine and Mellow (Billie Holiday/Big Bill Broonzy melody) 3. My Morphine (Gillian Welch) 4. Black Jack Davey (Carter Family) 5. Western Cowboy (LeadBelly arranged by Alynda lee Segarra) 6. Jealous Guy (John Lennon) 7. Just A Heart (James Hand) 8. Angel Ballad (Alynda lee Segarra adapted from Gillian Welch Melody) 9. Cuckoo (Alynda lee Segarra) 10. People Talkin' (Lucinda Williams) 11. River (Joni Mitchell) 12. I'm Goin' Away (Elizabeth Cotten) 13. Lonesome I Could Cry (Hank Williams Sr.) 14. Needin' Time (Spiritual Traditional)
Here's an example of what some of those covers sound like:
Thank you so much for the support! We couldn't do any of this without you folks coming out to our shows and buying our music online. I am so eager to get this new record out to all of you and I hope you enjoy it!
