Phish frontman Trey Anastasio has announced the release of his long awaited new album ‘

PAPER WHEELS’ – the multi-talented singer/musician/composer’s first new solo album in three years. Album is set for release on October 30 via Rubber Jungle/ATO Records and will be offered as a deluxe limited edition that will include 180 gram 45 RPM 2x LP splatter vinyl and a die cut gatefold package with six unique sleeves. Only 4,000 of these special packages will be manufactured.

Produced by Anastasio and longtime collaborator Bryce Goggin, ‘PAPER WHEELS’ was recorded last year at The Barn, the Phish founding guitarist’s Vermont farmhouse-turned-rehearsal space/recording studio. Anastasio and the members of Trey Anastasio Band (TAB) developed the material on stage while touring and sound-checking on the tour leading up to the sessions, allowing them to track the album in just under a week. Taking a cue from the energetic immediacy of classic Stax Studio recording sessions, TAB worked fast and loose, playing together live in The Barn and wrapping up tracks after one or two takes. Written and co-written by Anastasio alongside frequent lyric partners Tom Marshall and Steve “The Dude of Life” Pollak, songs like the funk-driven “Bounce” and the elegiac “Invisible Knife” (written solely by Anastasio) are among the legendarily diverse artist’s most infectious and inventive, alive with creative vigor, robust musicianship, and true soul power.

New Releases – Phish ‘Fuego’, Vacationer ‘Relief’ & SomeKindaWonderful ‘SomeKindaWonderful’

Legendary jam band Phish have returned with their 12th studio album ‘Fuego’. Originally reuniting out of genuinely wanting t hang out, eventually the band sat down to try to write in a way they never had before. Listen to guitarist Trey Anastasio and keyboardist Page McConnell talk about writing the songs across 5 notepads via NPR. Of course the only real way to experience Phish is live, check out their tour dates here to see if they hit your town. Vacationer return with their highly anticipated follow-up record ‘Relief’. The Philly-based group, consisting of The Starting Line’s Kenny Vasoli along with Body Language’s Matthew Young and Grant Wheeler, refine their months on the road into tighter and more powerful tracks. Watch the recently released video for the infectiously sunny ‘The Wild Life’. Cleveland alt-rock group SomeKindaWonderful  have released their self-titled debut album. Watch the video for the slightly-disorienting hit song ‘Reverse’ on their Vevo Channel or stream the full album on their YouTube with the SKW Visualizer.  A short string of US dates has already been announced with a full tour in the works.

Mike Gordon

Preview New Song “Ether” HERE

 ATO Records and MapleMusic Recordings will release Mike Gordon‘s new solo album, Overstep, on February 25, 2014. Gordon shared songwriting duties with guitarist and longtime collaborator Scott Murawski and handed over the producing reins for the first time in his solo career, enlisting Paul Q. Kolderie (Radiohead, Uncle Tupelo, Pixies). He also invited a few new players into the studio, including legendary drummer Matt Chamberlain (Jon Brion, Fiona Apple).

 Gordon will celebrate the release of Overstep with a North American headline tour that will kick off at the Westcott Theatre in Syracuse, NY on February 28. The run will include a date at the Rio Theatre in Vancouver, BC (March 22). The bassist/vocalist will be joined on the road by his longtime band – Scott Murawski (guitar), Craig Myers (percussion), Tom Cleary (keyboards) and Todd Isler (drums). The new repertoire will be augmented by hints of secret synesthetic mad scientist gadgetry on and around the stage.

A limited number of tickets are available NOW via a real-time presale at http://tickets.mike-gordon.com/. Tickets will go on sale to the public beginning Friday, December 13, at 10:00 AM ET. See below for itinerary or visit the tour dates page at mike-gordon.com for further details.

Overstep is Gordon’s fourth solo album, following 2003′s Inside In, 2008′s The Green Sparrow and 2010′s Moss. Gordon is a founding member of Phish, which will wrap up 2013 with a sold-out, four-night stand at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. He has also performed with numerous other artists and released two albums with Leo Kottke.
