Page McConnell to Release New Album on Record Store Day 2013


L4LM learned today, via Hidden Track, that not only will Phish reissue Lawn Boy on Record Store Day 2013, but Page McConnell's LP Unsung Cities and Movies Never Made will also be released.  The album was recorded at The Barn in December of 2009 with Tea Leaf Green bassist Reed Mathis, guitarist Adam Zimmon (Shakira....yes, that's right), and drummer Gabe Jarrett of Jazz Mandolin Project and Vorcza.  Mathis told Hidden Track that Phish bassist Mike Gordon lent him two basses to record the album with Page.  

The story originally broke when reported by Wax Poetic, who offered a compiled list of releases set to come out on Record Store Day 2013 (April 20th).  Here is a list of the tracks on Unsung Cities, and a description of the album from none other than The Chairman of the Boards himself:

1) Arbor Day
2) Ava Green
3) Late Edition
4) Yakima
5) Marfa
6) Barre
7) Candlestick
8) Altoona
9) Soul Etude
10) The Lemon Drop

“Movies never made, well, at least not yet.  A series of Soundtracks, maybe….can a soundtrack exist without a film?  Okay, future soundtracks, soundtracks-in-waiting, potential scores searching for a script.  In the meantime, hopefully the listener might develop their own plot lines and imagine a storyboard:  Soul Etude, a period piece; The Lemon Drop, A Psychedelic Coming of Age Film; Late Edition, A spaghetti-western; Candlestick, A murder-mystery (possibly an independent Canadian release); or even Arbor Day, a Lifetime Original made-for-TV-movie.  Sprinkled throughout are a few impressionistic interpretations of unsung cities; not to say these places have never been mentioned in song, but certainly not over sung.  Please enjoy these soundtracks as they float through time, a sort of phantom foreshadowing of films that lay in waiting and cities that, after this release, might be a little less unsung.” – Page McConnell
