Well, all righty where to begin? I’ll pretend that someone from the future is looking through the GTG archives, how about that? Classic narrative device!
In early 2020 a highly contagious flu called Coronavirus forced people all over the world to stay quarantined in their homes to not spread the virus so fast that it would collapse the health care system. It was a wild thing to live through, let me tell you. So what we did way back then to stay sane and try to make something positive creatively was release a series of videos every day on the GTG Records facebook page featuring solo/acoustic performances of GTG artists and friends. Most of these videos were filmed via phones or simple camera setups. It’s cool to look back on now from a safe and comfortable vantage point from the future, er, present. We called the video series “Staying At Home With GTG Records” and here’s the videos posted the first two weeks of containment in March 2020. Wow, check them out!
Michael Boyes (Drinking Mercury) – Delightfully Lonely
Timmy Rodriguez (Drinking Mercury) – A Nordhouse Night
Joseph “Dim” Wolstenholme (Alpha Rabbit/Honah Lee) – Red State Blues
Drinking Mercury’s self-titled second album is now available digitally. Check it out above from GTG or stream/download at any of these other soulless places where the streaming and the downloading tends to happen: Spotify iTunes Amazon YouTube
Check out the first single from the new Drinking Mercury album, out this Friday! “Catching Up To Me,” like the rest of the self-titled album, was recorded in the dead of a Michigan summer at a cabin in Bitely, MI. The end result is warm and atmospheric and a new high for this band.
Bam! Another solid entry from Small Parks and for the ol GTG gang (is that redundant like ATM Machine?) in 2019. 3 new songs (one of which was previewed way back on GTG100) recorded this fall and produced by Nick Diener. Get ready to shout along. It’s great to have these fine folks back!
