Timing “Storm’s Coming” Album Premiere (Listening Party)
at The Hangar on The Hudson
675 River St Troy, New York
Doors at 7pm, Music at 8pm
So who is Timing? Well if you’re familiar with the 518 music scene you probably know these guys already. Chris Jordan (vocals, resonator, keys), Jason Bonafide (pedal steel guitar), Bob Watson (bass) and Mark McKenna (drums); well that does sound familiar, doesn’t it? This is/was The Slaughterhouse Chorus, isn’t it? Yes and three quarters of these guys are Girth Control. Oh, and let’s not forget about about the Public Access days.
Timing is the latest project from the Built4BBQ camp and we are all very excited to hear the new music. After the musicians first extended hiatus in nearly two decades the guys got back together to start making new music in an old horse barn in Rensselaer County, NY in the summer of 2020. These live barn recordings were then taken back to Jason Bonafide’s basement studio to be reassembled and given new life. Later the EP was mixed by Scoops Dardaris (Prince Daddy & The Hyena, Undeath) and then mastered by Nick Sebastiano (Another Michael).
What are we to expect? Well, I didn’t quite know how to put it into my own words so I decided to use their words, because they said it best. “Timing’s “Storm’s Coming” is a concept album where meteorology is the metaphor for life’s everyday anxiety and unease, where the thunderheads are always lurking somewhere on the horizon, where the river is always threatening to flood its banks. The alt-country heart of the record skips into arrhythmias of crashing doom, swirling post-rock, pastoral indie-folk, and glitching electronics. Tossed around somewhere in the trailing wakes of The Band and The Books, Aphex Twin and Aaron Copeland, the resulting mini-album is an amalgamation of the new and the old, the familiar and the unknown, blurring the lines between acoustic and electronic and riding the fence dividing tradition and experimentation.”
Saturday (January 28th) at The Hangar on the Hudson you are invited to come listen to Timing’s “Storm’s Coming” EP in it’s entirety. Very much like some of The Beatles tunes, these songs are more of a recording project that can’t be redone easily as a live performance.
