Jeremy Porter and The Tucos – “Don’t Worry, It’s Not Contagious” LP/CD out now!

JP3
It’s out – “Don’t Worry, It’s Not Contagious,” the third LP from Jeremy Porter and The Tucos. This album features 11 songs of Replacements-y powerpop with elements of Americana and classic Detroit garage rock. The Detroit release show is this Friday 11/17 at PJ’s Lager House, and the Lansing release show is this Saturday 11/18 at The Avenue Cafe – both shows are GTG parties since The Plurals are playing too. Jeremy Porter and The Tucos came onto the GTG scene at a Mystery Garage show in 2015 and since then we’ve been sharing stages (and crowds) with them in various configurations around the Midwest. The Tucos are true road warriors and they’ll continue to bring their infectious and energetic sounds to stages around the US, Canada and beyond. Apologies if you find this album to be contagious after all – it’s out digitally, on CD, and on 180g vinyl manufactured at Third Man Record Pressing in Detroit. Hooray for GTG’s 2017 record series!

Jeremy Porter and The Tucos – “Huckleberry” single


We’re proud to be dropping this slice of pop-rock goodness today from Detroit’s Jeremy Porter and The Tucos. Three tunes here, a song from their forthcoming LP “Don’t Worry, It’s Not Contagious” (out from us in November) plus two previously unreleased live recordings. This digital-only single is the first collaboration between us and our favorite Detroit trio but it’s far from the last. Stay tuned! GTG’s 2017 just keeps getting better!
