pre-order ‘live acoustic at the mercury’ DVD/2CD now!

September 1st, 2015

We’re extremely pleased to be finished with the heavy editing of our live concert collection, “Live From the Mercury Lounge,” recorded at our excellent NYC show last year and featuring 100 minutes of pristine HD video on DVD and two CDs full of music. If you weren’t able to make it to one of our shows last year, this intimate footage is the next best thing. And if you were there, it’s the ultimate momento!

Here’s what you’ll receive when you pre-order now:

• a guaranteed copy of our limited-run DVD/CD package — get ’em before we run out!
• a $5 discount off the regular price — available for the next 3 days only!
• your DVD/CDs signed and inscribed per your request — just let us know when you order.
• a first look/listen available one week from now via digital download.

The DVD features every song we played during both sets, as well as an intermission with backstage views and exclusive interview material with me and Andy. The two-camera footage is beautifully shot and edited, a great presentation for fans and non-fans alike.

The 3-disc package includes two CDs of the music from the show. We took painstaking care to record the audio and Andy has tweaked and polished the mix until it shines. It’s a moving document of the night as well as a pretty awesome collection of music. 20 songs with Paul on vocals and guitar and Andy on guitar and piano, as well as all the dumb jokes, snafus and crowd exchanges that made the night so memorable.

You can order the package in high resolution digital download as well, but we hope you’ll spring for the DVD/CDs. This whole thing was surprisingly expensive to produce and we could really use your help in making it happen. As always, it’s your love and support that allows us to do what we do.

Please pre-order your choice of packages today. We can’t wait for you to see and hear this stuff!

‘bound’ in the living room w/ cello!

June 25th, 2015

hey all. so, jesse ahmann is the guy who played cello on ‘unplugged,’ and so everytime he stops into town we have a bullshit session and then we play stuff and sometimes bang out a little video of a song. i only let him go through it, like, one and a half times to prepare before we start shooting.

this is ‘bound’ from the two strangers album. it kind of always has been a folky, acoustic-based track so i was psyched to give it the cello treatment. someday we’ll give all this a proper recording on ‘unplugged II’ 😉

thanks for listening.
