Magnolia Electric Co. & Damien Jurado Contribute Live Tracks to Record Store Day LP

35_ithappeneda

All of us here at Secretly Canadian have been eagerly anticipating Record Store Day for weeks now, and this year we’re excited to have Magnolia Electric Co. and Damien Jurado appear on a special LP formulated in heart of southern Indiana. Both artists contributed tracks to It Happened Here, a Record Store Day exclusive vinyl LP + 7″ compilation of live and exclusive studio recordings made in Bloomington, IN in 2009.

A live take of Magnolia Electric Co.’s “Rider. Shadow. Wolf.,” performed July 10, 2009 at local recording studio Russian Recording appears on the LP, along with Damien’s “Kansas City,” performed April 11, 2009 at the same location.

This LP + 7″ is a collaboration between three Bloomington enterprises who represent three distinct spheres of the music world: Russian Recording (recording studio), St. Ives (Secretly Canadian’s boutique record label) and Landlocked Music (retail store). Together they give you not just a snapshot of the Indiana scene but also the influence of the times. Each LP + 7″ possesses lovingly handmade artwork from Woodruff & Sons and In Case of Emergency Press and is strictly limited to a one-time pressing of 750 copies. A digital download of the tracks comes with purchase. Check out the full track listing after the jump.

MAGNOLIA ELECTRIC CO. Preps Exclusive Record Store Day 7-inch, Tours West Coast With The Avett Brothers

Quite often, times of dormancy only seem so to those of us on the outside. The wheels never really stop turning. Such is the case for MAGNOLIA ELECTRIC Co., which has a string of items lined up over the next months, including its first official release since 2007′s Sojourner box set.

First for the band is an exclusive 7″ titled It’s Made Me Cry, which will be available first on April 18 as part of Record Store Day, an international event celebrating independently-owned record stores. Side A of the 7″ features a tuplet of songs recorded over a weekend in October 2008 at Bloomington’s Russian Recording. The songs serve as a lesson in the power of brevity – each a flaming arrow to the heart of some heavy emotions. Side B of It’s Made Me Cry is the moody, instrumental “Protection Spell,” recorded at Russian Recordings almost exactly a year prior to the other songs and featuring late bassist Evan Farrell. The band’s proceeds from the 7″ will benefit The Evan Farrell Memorial Fund.

A list of businesses participating in Record Store Day can be found HERE.

It’s Made Me Cry will also be available digitally worldwide on May 19.

In May, Magnolia Electric Co. will tour the western U.S., sharing a string of West Coast dates with North Carolina’s The Avett Brothers, who are confessed fans of Magnolia Electric Co. Scott Avett was recently quoted in American Songwriter singing the praises of the band: “Shit, man, that Magnolia (Electric) Co. EP a few years ago moved me, and most of the world hasn’t heard it. That’s ridiculous. But I know those things happen.”

May will also bring a Magnolia Electric Co. appearance at Spain’s Primavera Sound Festival.

See a full listing of Magnolia tour dates HERE.

Stay tuned for more news coming from the Magnolia camp.
