Chris Connelly, Gordon Young, and I sat down with Sounds and Shadows to talk about a whole slew of topics: collaborative production across continents, time signatures outside 4/4, analog vs digital guitar recording, Hawkwind, politics in art done effectively and the wonders of East German Banjo!
Nemesis by The Joy Thieves (feat. Chris Connelly) is out today!
After spending the last year tirelessly working on our album American Parasite, The Thieves were in the mood to do something lighthearted, spontaneous and fun. And because we have a tendency to do whatever the hell we want to do, whenever the hell we want to do it...that's exactly what we did! Our cover of Shriekback's classic song, Nemesis, is out today on Armalyte Industries...and it's ABSOLUTELY FREE!
