WATCH/HEAR THE BRAND NEW SINGLE “UNDERGROUND BLUES” + ROLLING STONE + UNDERGROUND GARAGE’S “COOLEST SONGS IN THE WORLD” & MORE
We have a brand new single and video out today called “Underground Blues”. It’s another track from the upcoming album Nothing Pressing.
This is one of two songs that were not recorded at Cowboy Junkies studio but recorded at home on my old early 80s Tascam 4-track tape recorder (fan of Springsteen’s Nebraska? He used the model right before to record that album). It just features me, myself and I on guitars and vocals. Mike Timmins (producer) loved the feel and sound of this recording and we didn’t want to re-record and chase that sound when we had it already there on tape. It’s pretty wild, you can save/download the single here: https://ffm.to/jlub
