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]
Sauna Sounds Cover Album
Hey MetaFilter, I have put together an 'album' of short covers I recorded between 2009 and 2011. Most of them I have posted to Music MetaFilter in the past, but I thought it would be fun to wrap them together a bit and hopefully it will inspire me to record more again. Includes guitar, bowed banjo, pump organ, harmonica, piano, whistling etc. [more inside]
