Holy moly, people. Crazy stuff happens when Joey Maramba and I get to spend time in the studio. Crazy stuff like finding a weird scribbled piece of paper documenting a song that I had written years ago while we were working on the Moby Dick album, which I had then lost and completely forgotten about, only to find it the other day, jam on it with Joey, and record it with drummer Nick Stone in a wild session that introduced a whole new sound and feel to the (already immense) Evangenitals arsenal. And guess what?! Even if you're not a Patron of my Arts on Patreon, you can STILL hear this new gem of an Ode to Love and Death At Sea for FREE on my Patreon page by following this link:
Come for the Song, Stay for the Solace:
If, after enjoying this sonic assault, you are so moved, you can then make the enormously wise decision to BECOME a patron on Patreon. By pledging a sum as minuscule as a single dollar* you will gain access to all of the other gems that we have been hiding on there, such as ukulele versions of Evangenitals songs from Denver hotel rooms, phone memo recordings of song ideas, as well as fully produced unreleased tracks from our upcoming album and stick figure drawings. (Yes. the stick figure drawings are the best.)
You may be aware that funding for the Arts is being utterly eviscerated as I type these words, and even more so as you read them (if you made it this far) and if you did, you are indeed the YOU that I am talking to! You are the kind of you that I need to do what we The Evangenitals need to do, and that is to make music, to combat the hideous onslaught of awfulness with sheer, unrepentant, uncontainable, sonic joy grenades. We call them albums. Help us make a ridiculously gigantic one, and listen along as we do, by becoming a Arts Patron today.
But Juli (you may be asking) WHY should I become a Patron on Patreon??? Well, do you like things such as..
When we recorded our live acoustic set for American Parlor Songbook (which became an EP) who do you think got a free download of that record before it was released? The Patrons, that's who! Because the Patrons get EVERYTHING first. Because we love them.
The Dirty Dirt
Random, intimate, fantastic things are posted on the Patreon, like phone memos of lame song ideas and embarrassing school photos. We invite patrons to Skype with us, watch studio performance, get free tix to shows, and we'll even play at your house sometime. There's all kinds of perks, IF you are a Patron. Check 'em out and become one of the few, the proud, the patrons, today.
You can set your contribution level, as well as a monthly cap, so you will never be charged more than expected. You can cancel or change your pledge at any time. And you can go to sleep at night knowing that YOU are helping to bring the good work of the Evangenitals to humanity at large, and more largely, and let's admit it... the world needs us right now.
