Sturgis Nikides and Mandy Lemons Nikides of the band Low Society are "very excited, to say the least!" about recording at Brad Dunn's American Recording studio. "You Can't Keep A Good Woman Down" is the working title of their new album for Icehouse Records (Low Society is the first act signed to Icehouse in a decade--the label's first release in as many years) and guest players include Rick Steff (piano/organ/accordion), Dr. Herman Green (sax), Brian Hawkins (harp) and John Shaw (piano).
American Fiction have just released "Dumb Luck" (recorded with legendary music producer Eddie Kramer) and look for "Stay A While" to follow and more recording with Kramer at Ardent Studios in Memphis. Kramer is also recording guitar prodigy Ray Goren in Los Angeles. He told jungleroom.com that Goren "plays blues primarily" and that he "has performed with the some the greats that are still with us-- Buddy Guy, B.B. King, etc. Phenomenal player."
Amy LaVere is "touring all the time" and has a new album coming out at the end of May. LaVere explained that there is "no chance" of a sophomore recording effort from The Wandering. "We tried but that project lost it's thing."
