Okkervil River EP, Golden Opportunities 2, A Gift To Their Fans

Posted on 28 November 2011 by James Gentry

In 2007 Okkervil River gave us the EP Golden Opportunities Mixtape for free.  Now they have another gift for their fans. Here’s what they had to say about it.

Like its predecessor, Golden Opportunities 2 is a series of conceptually-related covers, this time by lesser-known musicians’ musicians such as Motown session player Ted Lucas, the 1980’s Australian band the Triffids, and the mysterious L.A. singer-songwriter Jim Sullivan, who vanished in the New Mexico desert in 1975. Golden Opportunities was recorded entirely live to two-track tape in one day at the Austin studio Premium Recording.

Download Golden Opportunities 2 here.

Track listing:
It is So Nice to Get Stoned (by Ted Lucas)
U.F.O. (by Jim Sullivan)
One Soul Less On Your Fiery List (by David McComb)
Plan D (by Bill Fay)
Dry Bones (American Traditional)

Katie Herzig Bio

In 2006, after several years of fronting the critically acclaimed Colorado-based band, Newcomers Home, Katie Herzig moved to Nashville to strike it solo. Before leaving Colorado, she single-handedly recorded and produced Weightless, a tour-de-force of innovative sonics and songwriting. Since then, Katie’s song “Heaven’s My Home” received a 2007 Grammy nomination and she has steadily become a fixture in Nashville’s up-and-coming indie music scene. Her songs have been featured on NPR, KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic, Frito Lay and Honda commercials and many television shows including several episodes of television’s highest rated drama, Grey’s Anatomy. Katie has toured with the Ten Out Of Tenn tour, Hotel Café Tour, PASTE Magazine songwriter tour and has supported national acts such as The Fray, Brandi Carlile, Shawn Colvin, Aqualung and others. In 2008, Katie was featured in Billboard Magazine’s “Now Hear This” as well as one of PASTE Magazine’s 25 “Best of What’s Next” artists. She continues to out-do herself with each new musical endeavor. Her last studio record, Apple Tree, birthed songs like “Wish You Well,” “Hologram,” “I Hurt Too” and “Forevermore” that have become musical staples in the hearts of Herzig’s fans. Her latest release, Live in Studio: Acoustic Trio is a spellbinding, uniquely immersive listening experience that manages to perfectly capture her live performances with bandmates Claire Indie (cello) and Jordan Hamlin (guitar, ukelele, accordion). This music is at once playful and impassioned–challenging and comfortable—intimate and epic… which is exactly what listeners have come to expect of Katie Herzig.

Zechs Marquise premiere new track and video teaser of new album, Getting Paid

Posted on 11 August 2011 by James Gentry

Everlasting Beacon Of Light

A sampling of tracks from the upcoming album by Zechs Marquise entitled Getting Paid available everywhere on September 27, 2011 on Rodriguez Lopez Productions.

“We started off recording percussion to sequencers and loops,” he explains. “I chopped those sounds up and arranged them. From there, were wrote the album with each of us coming in and playing on top of it. Kind of like a hip-hop song.” Considering the hectic tour schedules of both Zechs Marquise and The Mars Volta (in which Marcel plays keyboards and percussion), the band was forced to work on the album over an extended period of time in between both band’s tours. “It gave us a lot of time to get perspective on the songs,” Marfred says. “We’re really happy with and proud of this record.”

Getting Paid will be available everywhere on LP/CD/digital on September 27th on Rodriguez Lopez Productions via Sargent House.

Getting Paid Tracklist:
01. Getting Paid
02. Lock Jaw Night Vision
03. Static Lovers
