Announcing // Project Carousel

Shorebird is thrilled to launch Project Carousel with award winning author and illustrator David Macaulay with exclusive music and LP’s from Volcano Choir, Mark Kozelek (Sun Kil Moon / Red House Painters), and unreleased music from the late great Jason Molina (Songs: Ohia, Magnolia Electric Company).
 
Project Carousel a multimedia initiative to raise, much needed, funding and awareness for the Looff Carousel at Crescent Park in East Providence, Rhode Island. We have put together a dream team of our friends to create a series of art that will truly honor the history of Charles I.D. Looff and his showcase carousel. This includes: illustrated visual art by award winning (multiple Caldecott, MacArthur Fellowship, etc,) author and illustrator David Macaulay, multiple albums (12″ collections of songs that are being exclusively written for this project) by Volcano Choir, the amazing Mark Kozelek (Red House Painters, Sun Kil Moon), unreleased music by the late great Jason Molina (Songs: Ohia, Magnolia Electric Company – curated by Chris Swanson, founding partner at Secretly Canadian), and our inaugural short film here at Shorebird. These collections are limited to 3500 copies each and are only available through this indiegogo campaign. Once they’re gone, they’re gone.

The plain facts are that Vio/Mirè are four friends from Providence, Rhode Island named Brendan Glasson, Emily Dix Thomas, Dave Noyes, and J.P.A. Falzone. But this is a band whose essence, really, is one of mystery and wonder; a band unbound by strict, simple borders or banal trifles of geography. Theirs is an expansive, viscerally arresting universe of shifting perspectives and strangely angled realities. A landscape of tranquility and commotion; comfort and alienation; gentleness and savagery opening into vistas both naturalistic and dreamlike. There is a reason (more than one, actually) that the collective’s forthcoming album – their first release for Shorebird due out this summer – is titled “You Will Be Spending Time Outdoors, in the Mountains, Near Water.”

– Jonathan Perry, Spring 2014

Pre-Order// wheat – Wishing Good Things For The World

This seven track EP is the first in a 3-part experience called – Wishing Good Things For The World! This will be followed by a feature length documentary, and and accompanying full length album of all new material – following the story of W H E A T, a band that never turned their backs on what they believed it means to be true to their art. This is not a story about a record deal or a world tour; Wishing Good Things For The World is about making the conscious decision to be true to oneself and, in turn, loving everyone and everything that come as a reaction to that decision: the good, the bad, and the kooky.

Wishing Good Things For The World is about any artist that has endured the pressure of pop culture to stay true to their outlet of self-expression.

Along with this announcement, we have also released the new single, Finding Wings, which can be streamed through the sidebar.
