Hold Steady’s Craig Finn Confirms New 7” Single

Craig Finn, frontman of The Hold Steady, has confirmed the November 25 release of his new 7” single “Honolulu Blues,” a preview of his highly anticipated solo debut out early 2012. The limited edition 7” vinyl, released with new b-side “Rented Room,” will only be available in select record stores nationwide on Record Store Day’s “Black Friday” sale. Both songs will be available via all digital retailers on November 29.

Produced by Mike McCarthy (Spoon, Trail of Dead) in Austin, Texas earlier this year, Finn’s solo album features backing by members of White Denim, The Heartless Bastards, Phosphorescent, and Centro-matic.

Read Pitchfork’s interview with Finn from earlier this year about the recording: http://p4k.in/uSHGIu

More information about the solo album will be announced soon. Until then, follow @SteadyCraig on Twitter and visit his Tumblr for Instragrams of the studio sessions in Austin:

Americana Rock Mix: Episode 120 - Auditorily Twanged

In this episode there seems to be some pretty twangy tracks. Completely unintentional, it’s just the way that the dice rolled. But it all fits together very nicely. Also, I talk about how you can get a hold of the exclusive episode (IF I win the 2011 Podcast Awards), the fact that I’m in the early stages of getting together my 2011 SXSW Showcase, and why I’m giving up draught beer.

The Shants - Beautiful was the Night The ShantsBeautiful was the Night Release Date: September 27, 2011Submitted by: Rusty HoganFrom their offical bio:The Shants’ slow-burning sound originates from the rural backgrounds of its members: from South Louisiana delta pines, to the brusk plains of Minnesota, to the rolling hills of the Central California Coast. The Shants now call Oakland, California home……Recorded in Oakland at  Rec Center and Tones on the Tail studios by Eliot Curtis, with some vocal harmonies from Brianna Lea Pruett & Quinn Deveaux, violin by Howie Cockrill, and horns by Ralph Carney (Tom Waits, Black Keys) as well as the Blue Bone Express. Rec Center and Tones On The Tail Studios.I don’t know what’s in the water out there in California, but it must be something good. The Shants are part of a long list of of great Americana artists and bands coming out out of California. Starting with the opening track Scarletts and Scoundrels, The Shants set a wonderful mid tempo groove. I tried listening to the album several times at work, but I found myself just wanting to kick back, tap my foot, and relax, which as you may have guessed didn’t bode well. The only misstep on the album seems to be Brother and Evangeline Blues; both are great songs, but they felt a bit out of place with the rest of the album. That said, Beautiful was the Night is a solid album well worth adding to your music collection.Baton Rouge by The Shants
