The music of Cotton Jones speaks of transition: the passage from one form, state of mind, style or place to another. Songs become doorways to the past, or windows that open on some unnamed future. Since 2009, they have released 3 LP's and multiple EP's with Suicide Squeeze Records, St Ives, Quite Scientific, & Porchlight. The majority of their recordings have been made in their home studio.

Since moving to Los Angeles from Oregon in the summer of 2005, The Parson Red Heads have worked themselves up to be one of the east side's most prominent live acts with a trio of residencies at Silver Lake Lounge, The Echo and Spaceland. In 2007, their debut full length, King Giraffe found its way on to the airwaves of KCRW where the band performed on the legendary "Morning Becomes Eclectic" as well as other prominent college stations (CMJ Top 200 for 9 weeks). Last year's Owl & Timber EP helped the band get out of California, helping them secure tours with the likes of Blitzen Trapper, Earlimart and Everest behind that release's buzz. Not letting momentum stop, the band is happy to announce their first release on vinyl with the 7" Orangufang.

Centralized around the songwriting of Evan Way (vocals, guitar), The Parson Red Heads are rounded out by his wife Brette Marie Way (drums, vocals), Sam Fowles (guitar, vocals), Aaron Ballard (guitar, vocals) and Andy Creighton (bass, vocals). Orangufang was recorded at Red Rockets Glare (Broken West, Ferraby Lionheart) in Los Angeles and was produced and engineered by sometime Parson, Raymond Richards. The 7" will feature the songs "Raymond" (named after Richards) and recent live favorite "You Can Leave It" as well as a download card so you can get those two tracks and bonus song "Knew A Young Girl" onto your iPod.

"Raymond" and "You Can Leave It" features the bright guitars and layered vocal harmonies that the group is so known for, while "Knew A Young Girl" takes them back to the more acoustic based work they did on 2006's Field Mouse Carnival EP. Special guests include Richards on Pedal Steel and former bass player David Swensen with bass on "You Can Leave It" and trombone on "Raymond". With a tour of California already in place for May, Orangufang will be sure to tide over their fans as the band works on their next full length record.
Josh Dillard & The Streaks of Lightning
Josh Dillard & The Streaks of Lightning
Josh Dillard is just a man. Was born from dust and into dust he shall return. He's the whisper from Denver rolling out across them lonesome plains; he's the shatter of lightning filling the outstretched arms of the Rockies; he's the heartbeat of the city in summer's swoon.
