And now something special, Skeletons (whom you may know as Skeletons and the Girl-Faced Boys, Skeletons and the Kings of All Cities, or Skeleton$) have a new LP, The Bus, which was recorded with a 20+ piece big band/chamber orchestra comprised of members various NYC underground bands including: Little Women, Extra Life, PC Worship, Starring, Tune Yards, NOMO, and The Dreebs, among others (collectively known as Skeleton$ Big Band… and yes, NOMO is from “Michicago” not NYC).
The LP was recorded when Skeletons were asked if they “might have an idea to do ‘something special’, over the course of a week, with space and time to work through that big idea at the NYC performance space Roulette.” The LP “is ‘ghost narrative’ based a long poem written on a Greyhound bus from Columbus, OH to Chicago, IL. It tells a story, without telling too much. It’s up to you to fill in the gaps.”
The Bus is set for release on September 18th via the Shinkoyo label. Here is track that showed up recently on the Shinkoyo Soundcloud.
Downloadable: Pencilneck (mp3)
You can also stream up another track from The Bus on the Youtubes.
