New Releases:
    

The LeBarons released a single to Spotify which tells the world what we already knew about their music: I’M GOOD (b/w LSM). Beach Boys harmonies all ovah!

What Time is It Mr. Fox? recorded a disco/funk/dark wave track called “He Was A Cloud” for the upcoming soundtrack to their musical play “Medusa“. All Bang-A-Song hands on deck here with Tony on guitars, Warren at the board for the engineer/mix/master, and our fave foxes on everything else!

Hemway let this Anna Rae penned track “Bargain” cook for a while, but it was worth the wait for the official release and official music video that accompanies it (created and performed by Catherine Siller). Propulsive af.

     

Warren (@wrensound) Babson mixed the latest new release from Sky Heavens which is available for pre-order now here. Check out her BBC Radio1 performance with Eminem while you’re pre-ordering.

Telamor must be feeling the romance this summer, as the last three releases are entitled “Let’s Get Married” “How To Love“, and “Great Balls of Fire“. (And who knows what it means, but the one before that was “Rattle My Cage“.) Check ’em all out!

John Jerome has pre-released a video for “All Of Us At Once” from his upcoming full-length album here. What a tease!

Uey At The Buoy cranked out three summer singles (one each month) for your listening pleasure: Seeing Double, Don’t Waste a Single Minute, and Only Heaven Knows.    ZZ Top guitars?  Check!

In The Studio/New Releases: Summer 2018

It took us until the last day of summer to stop tracking (and swimming) and rocking (and sweating) long enough to bring you the news about who’s been at Bang A Song working, and who’s put their new Bang A Song stuff out for your listening pleasure.

New Releases:

  • The new long player from The Only Things is available at Bandcamp and Apple Music.
  • John Jerome released his self-titled album this summer, and if you’re lucky enough to have caught him at Harbor Loop, at the Bluefin Blowout, at The Rhumb Line, on North Shore 104.9 (you get the idea), then you should have a copy of the CD by now. If you do not, you should check it out on Spotify.
  • Alexandra and Josh recorded and released The Colour Lilac on all platforms (Itunes | Amazon | Spotify | CD Baby) and they held a proper record-release party to celebrate the accomplishment!
  • Second Balcony Jump released the second single from the album “Get Up”, and it’s a smooth and saxy piece entitled “Blind“. And if you’re in the mood to bang a little, the third single “Do It Again” features choice performances from Kinetik, DJ Slipwax, and Heavy Stud. I mean, that’s just stacking the deck….and we like it!
