From Georgia English:

We really don’t deserve Josh Preston. He took it upon himself to create a video on YouTube with both the artwork and music. Also. He played every instrument, encouraged me, and put up with this bat for a whole year.

Short-Sighted People In Power (Deluxe Edition), by My Politic

From our friends My Politic!
“So grateful for the support from folks who have already pre-ordered the Deluxe vinyl!! We added two brand new songs to the end of "SSPIP". A song about Nashville's last year and half called "Driving Around" & "Hope In America", which is almost certainly a misnomer... You can get a digital copy of the entire "Deluxe Edition" instantly, when you pre order your vinyl. Follow the link below! Thank y'all so much for supporting small time big hearted operations like ours. Without y'all, we'd just be singing to ourselves! “

Good morning! “Love Letter to the Woolly Mammoth”, the first single from my forthcoming album, is out today!

https://orcd.co/woolly-single

With all of the singles that we’re releasing for the new album, there are two versions of each song. The first version is the song as it appears on the album (which is called Unnatural Selections, btw) and the second version is a vocal and electric guitar version. I thought it would be cool to showcase these songs in a different setting. I hope you dig these recordings and please add them to your playlists and share them on your socials. Love you guys and have a great weekend! @Eventide @Universal Audio @Collings Guitars and Mandolins @Townsend Labs @Adobe #logicprox #townsendlabs #collingsguitars #songwriter #quarantine #eventide #fenderamps #universalaudio #homestudio #experimentalvideo #stayhomemakeart #adobeaftereffects #adobecharacteranimator #adobepremierpro #singersongwriter

Here’s a fully animated video for a new song I wrote called “Bomb Shelter Blues”. It’s definitely a tune that exceeded my comfort zone but it was really fun to record and arrange. It’s the first time I really went deep with a drum machine and it was many years since I layered vocals so intensely (side note, the more you layer, the easier it is to cover mistakes! Haha.). If anyone is interested, I’ll post the chart so you can see how the chords stack up. I’ve been on an evolving harmonic journey as of late and I’m learning a bunch of interesting stuff.

Bean illustrated and animated the entire video over the course of a week or so. That journey was pretty intense as well! I dig making art with her.
Hope you enjoy this weird little tune and I’m sure there will be more to come.

P.S. We’re toying with the idea of doing a live Sunday brunch set soon so keep an eye out for more details. Love you guys, stay safe and thanks for listening!!
