New visual for Bahamas track “Bitter Memories” has premiered over at Noisy. Here is a note from Afie…
“My friend Heather Goodchild has basically worked on everything I’ve ever done. For my first album, Pink Strat, she and I silkscreened the first two hundred covers in my living room. For my second record, she made this rug that said Barchords for the cover… now she’s hand-drawn a video for “Bitter Memories”.”
The moment has finally arrived! G. Love & Special Sauce have a new album “Love Saves The Day” that will be dropping on October 30th. As of right now you can pre-order the new album on Pledge Music where G. has put together up all kinds of limited edition goods and one of a kind experiences. You can see them all HERE.
“Love Saves The Day” features the down and dirty “trashcan blues” style of G. Love with his his long-term Special Sauce rhythm section James “Jimi Jazz” Prescott and drummer Jeffrey “The Houseman” Clemens. Robert Carranza, Engineer and producer(Jack Johnson, Beastie Boys, Mars Volta) recorded the group live with few edits to capture the raw and unfiltered electricity of the tracks. The new release is “the fullest realization of the hip-hop blues” that G. Love first pioneered with Special Sauce in the early ‘90s. This album features guest artists including Lucinda Williams, Citizen Cope, David Hildago of Los Lobos, Ozomatli, DJ Logic, Money Mark, Zach Gill and Adam Topol.
Our new album “Tangle Of Time” is done and ready for pre-order at PledgeMusic. Six months in the making, we’re thrilled to finally start sharing what we made.
When pre-ordering the album, you’ll get full access to all the behind-the-scenes content we got, including an early peak at lyrics, video clips from the studio, stories behind the songs and more. You’ll also get early downloads of two tracks from the record – “The Ticket” on August 14th and “Not Old Yet” on September 11th. The full album will be in your inbox on October 2nd.
In addition to the album, we’ve also put together some packages featuring limited merch items as well as special experiences with the band, everything from handwritten lyric sheets to record shopping trips to music lessons to help write a setlist to dinner with the band and more. We’re psyched about the album and the fun pre-order packages. We hope you find some items you can’t resist!
