mp3 of the month for February

Postby charliedon'tsurf » Thu Jan 31, 2008 8:40 pm

This month we grant you an advance listen to a track off the upcoming full-length debut album by The Gusto, entitled The Way It Is, to be released by Crustacean in late spring. Tracking is completed on the record and the final mixes are being worked on by Declan Dwyer (Things Fall Apart) and Gavin Lefebvre (The Skintones/ex-SevenOneFive) at Master Blaster Studios. In the meantime they completed an unmastered rough mix of a previously unreleased Gusto song, Two Chords.

Gusto lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist Jake Boyardi had the following comments about the new track:[i]

“I wrote this song about Brett Favre but anyone can decide on someone in their own lives it could be about. It's about someone who really goes for the gusto every time they need to get the job done and makes me proud to be a Wisconsinite. We based the music on the riff that Patt plays at the beginning, which sounds like some sort of blues lead played backwards. What a crazed bitch!â€Â

For August, Crustacean Records mp3 of the month is another advance track from the soundtrack of our DVD, Crustacean Records: Drown Out The Daylights, which just came out on July 22nd. It is Ouija Radio with a live version of "Cookie" from the main feature of the DVD. On the Ouija Radio front, The Von Bondies have not been touring since June so Christy has been in Minneapolis writing a lot of new material with her main band. They got enough songs for their fourth full-length which they will be recording before the end of the year. They played tons of amazing new material last weekend at the Minnesota DVD premiere party at Stasiu's Place.

You can download the track in the month of August by clicking on the mp3 of the month button on the upper left hand side of the Crustacean homepage, going to the Crustacean Records music page or downloading it from the Crustacean Records myspace.

You can buy our new DVD and all our other records in Madison at Earwax Records, Borders West, The Exclusive Company, Mad City Music, B-Side Records and the Crustacean Records webstore. We just got some more press for our movie from onmilwaukee.com with a synopsis of the project and interviews with the label ownership.
