Want to warm up on this cold, dreary, wet winter day? Then scoot over to Bandcamp and score Mean Creek's new Hemophiliac EP for the nice-price of FREE, or whatever you want to chip in and donate.
We've been blasting it here at Phoenix HQ all day and it's certainly worth a few of your hard-earned badger bucks, a sweet rock n roll teaser-pleaser to hype next Saturday's massive EP release party with Taxpayer, Girlfriends and Dirty Dishes at the newly christened Brighton Music Hall. We already raved on the gig in our Winter Preview a few weeks ago, so let's take the new word straight from the mouths and minds of Mean Creek. Here's the deets on the new recording, lazily ripped from their blogspot (beats me trying to re-write it):
-------> You can download our new EP, “Hemophiliac,” for FREE @ BANDCAMP!
For some back story, we were originally planning on going into the studio to record a full length album, until about a month ago we found out that we weren’t going to have any financial support for the recording. We decided to record what we could afford to record ourselves. This release is entirely self-funded, and we want to give it away to anyone that is interested in listening. If you feel so inclined, you can “name your own price” and pay us whatever money you see fit for it, and if you want it for free, simply put in 0. Feel free to share this music & this download link with anyone you want. Post it anywhere you want. We hope you enjoy it!
For some info on the EP, it was recorded & produced by the wonderful John Agnello @ Headgear Recording Studio in Brooklyn, NY. It was mastered by Nick Zampiello @ New Alliance East in Cambridge, MA. Our good friend John Allen took the beautifully strange cover photo. Our good friend Pat Morin did the artwork design of the physical CD copies which you can pick up at any of our upcoming shows. And last, but not least, the talented, Nick Curran, who took some lovely photographs.
We will be celebrating the release of this new EP in Boston on Saturday January 29 @ Brighton Music Hall w/ Taxpayer, Girlfriends, & Dirty Dishes, and in NYC on Saturday February 5 @ Pianos w/ The Vandelles, The Party Faithful, and Boom Chick. BIG thanks to all the bands playing these shows and to all of the people that have helped make this EP possible. We love all of you.
See you in the pit!
Love, Mean Creek
