HELLO FRIENDS... Hope yr doing well.

*BENEFIT ALBUM NEWS* Our friend Gordon Withers has assembled an incredible compilation of 23 bands for a brand new album called “In Pleasant Company” - It features many DC-area artists like Jay Robbins, The Pauses and Tone… and some colleagues from Louisville including Ryan Patterson and the band Black God. There are also two new covers – one of Shipping News’ early songs and one Rodan track.

Here is the website where you can pre-order the digital version of the album (and preview several songs). There's also one FREE download track >
