Welcome to Christmastown
November 10th, 2008
Merry Christmas! My friends and I have just released a new album – it’s called Welcome To Christmastown by Courtney Collins and Jeremy Ylvisaker with J.T. Bates and Michael Lewis. Jeremy recorded most of my earlier albums and we’ve been friends for years – he plays guitar with Andrew Bird and with his own band Alpha Consumer. Mike is a multi-instrumentalist – he’s in Bon Iver, and also plays with Dosh. And J.T. drums for The Pines and for A Prairie Home Companion. Micheal Larsen, also known as Eyedea from the duo Eyedea And Abilities engineered the whole affair! A lot to keep track of, yes? They’re all ridiculously talented and it was a fun summer spent making music with these guys.
Check out the new video for Come On-A My House (from the new album)!
We’re so thankful to everyone who’s picked up the CD, given it as a gift, or written nice reviews of it! Here are some links to what reviewers are saying:
