(WARNING: THIS IS A 12" LP, NOT A CD!
Includes .wav/.mp3 download card!)
The Lewi Longmire Band is: Lewi Longmire (vocals, guitar, vibes), Bill Rudolph (bass, harmony vocals), and Ned Folkerth (drums, percussion, harmony vocals). Guests on this album are Edward Connell (Hammond B3) and Paul Brainard (dobro).
This latest release, Tales of the Left Coast Roasters, was recorded (and mixed) mostly live in seven days (over the course of several months in late 2010 and early 2011) at Type Foundry studios with engineer Adam Selzer (M. Ward, The Decemberists, Jolie Holland, Builders & Butchers, Blind Pilot, Sallie Ford & the Sound Outside). Since the basic sound of the band's music is "a power trio in the classic vein", the aim with this album was to capture that sound in a live, energetic, stripped-down way. The album is only available on vinyl LP with an included digital download card, which contains both CD-quality .wav files and smaller .mp3s. As an added bonus, this card is printed on seeded paper: it can be planted in your yard when you're done with it, bringing up a handful of wildflowers for your viewing pleasure!
