    Blue Sinatra – We’re All on Drugs

    The final recordings from Philly’s favorite eclectic live band. The third installment from Blue Sinatra was only released digitally by the band before they disbanded in 2009. It is easy to hear the direction that the music was going that would soon divide them. This is the  first record that was produced professionally,  by Ryan & Paul of “the Cobbs,” (Kasabian, War on Drugs) & Brian McTear (Hail Social, Matt Pond). The former members of the band went on to play with Fantastic Planet, Beyonce Knowles, Ohm Brellas, West Philly Orchestra, Philadelphia Slick, Panic Years, and many, many, more. If you are from the  Philadelphia area, chances are, you know someone who was in the lineup at one point.

    Life in Pastel – I was made in factory…

    “Life in Pastel” is an archive of early home recordings from G. James, which would later develop into an updated sound with “the Skating Party “. This 18 track collection of lo-fi recordings is one of a kind in its recording and production techniques, and very hard to believe how current it sounds,  being that is was recorded 15 years ago.

    Sample Track – Broken Zeros
