We’re so very pleased to release the first Static Motor live album—The Longwalls Live at The Bridge—featuring 10 audio tracks and stellar black and white video. It was a special night for all who were there and we’ve worked to try and capture the spirit of that special night back in March when the snow was still stacked oh so high. We hope this release brings it all back a bit. Download the audio here on SMR (or Bandcamp or SoundCloud) and check out the live video on YouTube. Wow, what a year. And thanks as always for supporting local music. Enjoy!
Big thanks to our pal Derek at Visions of the Unexcused for premiering the first video from The Longwalls – Live at The Bridge. The Longwalls classic track Zombies! gets the acoustic treatment here complete with mandolin, washboard and even a little harmonica. Good times were had back in March when this was all shot during the release show for Gold Standard (there was lots of snow.. and lots of beer as Derek points out). 10 songs have been selected from the show and the full video (along with free audio download) will be ready in December. Stay tuned. Happy Halloween. And #stayinthehousecarl
Wow, what a summer. And now, back to school. Our own Kurt von Stetten has completed his 10th solo album in 10 years! Damn. It’s called Bon Fortuna and is slated for an October release date. Meanwhile, The Longwalls will soon be releasing Live at the Bridge—a live concert video shot/recorded during their Gold Standard release show back in March. It’s black and white and looks and sounds great. The band is also working on some new material and will record a couple songs this fall. Look out for a digital single by the end of the year. And, 10 years after its release, Gatsby’sFloods + Fires has been touched up and remastered with 2 previously unreleased tracks added in. Look out for Floods + Fires [Turbo Edition] later this fall. All that and more… stay tuned!
What else… a video is in the works for the track “Home,” and the whole release show was recorded (audio and video), so look for some of that down the road. And.. more shows in the future as soon as we can book ’em. Thank you!!!!
