LSTN // Gardens & Villa Cover The Animals, Currently Bringing Happiness to Cities Across America

Maybe it’s just us, but it seems everything Gardens & Villa touch turns to gold. They take a song, morph it into what on the surface seems cool and collected. Then you find yourself at the two minute mark, energized and body moving. Your confidence is overwhelming. You’re ready to take over the world. It’s just what they’ve done to The Animals’ “We Gotta Get Out Of This Place,” a song we all recognize from some distant youth. RCRD LBL shares the exclusive download >>> enjoy the cover.

The G&V dudes are currently on tour. The music is without a doubt something you’ve got to experience in person. If you’re in Chicago, head to Schubas tonight for their show with Moon King. They’ll head to Bloomington tomorrow and then join Polica for handful of shows >>> full list of dates and tickets.

Back in Print!: Magnolia Electric Co.’s ‘Sojourner’ Boxset and ‘Trials & Errors’ LP

We are so very pleased to announce that two classic, rare Magnolia Electric Co. releases are finally back in print and available for order through SC Distribution now.

MEC’s Sojourner boxset includes sessions at Memphis’ famous Sun Studios; Jason Molina’s collaboration with Camper Van Beethoven’s David Lowery; Molina’s infamous Shonola solo session EP; and more of MEC’s incredible work with producer Steve Albini. Also includes tour DVD as wide-open as the desert landscape, as well as postcards, a poster and special medallion. In many ways the boxset represents much of the Molina oeuvre. The opposite of The Hydra. One head, many bodies.

Trials & Errors is a European live recording dating just a few months after the formation of Magnolia Electric Co. It’s one magical night in Brussels. The tension between freewheeling and controlled never lets up. Molina’s tenor is soaring. So are the guitars. We once called this a “an existential response to Neil Young’s Tonight’s the Night,” and well, that’s about as apropos as we get.

Both of these timeless releases are also available in a few bundle deals. Please do visit SC Distribution at the link below.
