We stumbled upon a new song while trying to record one of the demo’s we took into the studio. In this video Nicolas (our producer) is trying out one of his ideas for the bass. In the background you can hear a little snippet of what it sounded like at the beginning as we were writing. It’s called Sinking Ships and it’s almost finished now…
Below are 3 new songs (to be released our new album) that were recorded live in Birmingham AL in the back of our van, which we have sold (along with all of our other things including our house) to get to Germany and record a new album. These are the “Van Videos”.
Next week at 8pm Wednesday December 8th we are releasing a new song called “We Can Make It”. It will be FREE!
Steven and I wrote this song when we were at the end and beginning of a lot of things. While I was writing the lyrics, Steven was recording a perfectly amazing guitar solo that I can’t wait for you to hear. The mic was about 10 feet from his amp, because we hadn’t set it up yet, but what he played sounded so good we kept it. Then for the end of the song we both gathered around the same mic to record the vocal harmonies live. It was a warm family feeling and that must be why it came out sounding like a song that should be released at Christmas time. This is the time of year when we all get the chance to come together and start over.

An Enemy Lovers New Artist Review…
From the first piano note of “A Children’s Crusade on Acid” I was hooked! (Click here to listen) Then the lead vocal came in and I wondered to myself if the lead singer was a guy or girl. But it was a waste of time, because I loved it and didn’t care. Richard Edwards voice is not strained but haunts you with a building emotion. And the music finds it’s home just outside the box, most closely related to where Radiohead lives. This comparison can be deadly, but in the case of “Margot and the Nuclear So and So’s” they manage to make it their own and you realize you’ve found one of those special bands.
You’ve may have never heard of them, but they are alive and well! (Follow Margot via their twitter AND become a fan here) With a huge list of dates booked on their tour across the country, Margot will make their way to Asheville, NC this Saturday with a brand new record. They have recorded 12 new tracks in the most peculiar way! (Do you want to know the story? Great full write up by Alli Marshall for Mountain Xpress – Click here to read)
Had we not booked this show at Stella Blue, we probably wouldn’t have found Margot early enough to see them in this stage of their career, where great music must fight and rival the beast (the music industry) to make it’s way into the light of the mainstream public. I can see this band becoming great, and I predict in this show, you will see and feel the beating heart that proves that great music is still alive. Don’t miss this show, because it will never happen again!!!
