The Wishing Well Divers - Live from the Living Room

The Wishing Well Divers is a musical project I’ve been working on in my spare time for a couple years now with my friend Will and various other session players from time to time. Recently, we thought it might be fun to make a living room concert video of one of our semi-weekly rehearsal sessions. Featuring about 25 minutes of new original songs, recorded live to phone in my new living room with every bumb note and flubbed lyric fully intact, we had fun making it and hope you find some joy and inspiration in watching it, too. (Content Warning: Some mild saucy language in the in-between song banter.)

Same Rat, Different Hat

The debut record from Out of System Transfer, a neo-old-timey band who sing punk-influenced folk songs about the assassination of William McKinley, hitting cops in the head with a brick, and riding the subway. Their sound has been compared to the Holy Modal Rounders, Mojo Nixon, and Mischief Brew. With physical media sales becoming less viable, it made little sense to get CDs printed (plus, no one in the band even had a working CD player), but it also felt wrong to forego the great potential offered by album covers and liner notes, not to mention the feeling of having a tangible thing for fans to have. Thus, the record was released as a zine, (also bundled with the download as a pdf) with original artwork commissioned for each song by various Brooklyn-based artists. [more inside]

Shape Note!

I finally got around to recording some arrangements of shape note tunes I've had kicking around my head for the last year. The first three are from a new book, The Shenandoah Harmony, a much-expanded update to Ananias Davisson's 1825 Supplement to the Kentucky Harmony. The last tune is from The Sacred Harp. [more inside]

John Roderick Plays a Potluck

This winter, we invited John Roderick of Seattle band The Long Winters and the Roderick on the Line podcast over for a potluck dinner. He played a few songs, told some stories, and ate all of the food. A few of those moments have been put together into a video collection called "More Than Shapes," named for a song and a story from that evening. [more inside]
