Q: How do you follow-up a four-song 7”?
A: With a two-song full-length.

One song per side, this radio-format-challenged record will come out January 22, 2013 on Chaperone Records. Side A “Can’t Walk Out” is the crown jewel of recent RGC live shows with it’s repetitive, building, almost free, freakout – so far, probably the most accurate recording of what the band brings to the stage. Side B “Seven” sees the more sprawling side of the band – haunting, epic, and enhanced throughout by guest guitarist Nels Cline. These songs were tracked live, playing together in the same room, one take each.

A friend of mine used to play Frank Zappa’s “Uncle Meat” at 16 rpm all the time. How do you recover from that?

You don’t.

stay warm, RGC
Tomorrow Tomorrow
Tomorrow Tomorrow is a new project centered around singer Meredith DiMenna, who recently made waves as featured vocalist on "Legend in My Own Mind" by The Stepkids (http://youtu.be/B3ahYMQA8TY). The music on their upcoming debut album, GENTLEMEN GO, is a swelling, organ-drenched time capsule of '60s studio craftsmanship, conjured up with Bridgeport based producer Chris Sanchez of Gold Coast Recorders. Songs were carefully chosen from the catalogues of both DiMenna and Sanchez as well as some of their songwriting friends and peers. The result is a riveting collection of psychedelic-country-torch songs: everything from the Jack White-era Loretta Lynn of "Bible Code" to the avant-gospel of "Can't See My Sun" and the death-blues of "Grey Haired Girl". The album features appearances from members of The Stepkids, Mates of State, The Fever, The Shivers, Moonraker, and Caravan of Thieves.

It also achieves the seemingly impossible, stretching the chameleonic DiMenna vocally from primitive warbler to beguiling torch songstress.
