105.3 The Fringe presents...OK GO
Album: Hungry Ghosts
Formed as a quartet in Chicago in 1998 and relocated to Los Angeles three years later, OK Go (Damian Kulash, Tim Nordwind, Dan Konopka, Andy Ross) have spent their career in a steady state of transformation. The four songs of their recent all-new Upside Out Ep represented the first preview of Hungry Ghosts, due out 10/14 on the band's own label Paracadute. This is the band's fourth full-length and the newest addition to a curriculum vitae filled with experimentation in a variety of mediums.
The band worked with longtime producer and friend Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips, Weezer, MGMT) while also enlisting a new collaborator in Los Angeles, veteran Tony Hoffer, (Beck, Phoenix, Foster the People) to create their most comfortable and far-reaching songs yet. Building on (and deconstructing) 15 years of pop-rock smarts, musical friendship, and band-of-the-future innovations, the Ep, Upside Out, offers a concise overview of forthcoming Hungry Ghosts' melancholic fireworks ("The Writing's on the Wall"), basement funk parties ("Turn Up the Radio"), IMAX-sized choruses ("The One Moment" ), and space-age dance floor bangers ("I Won't Let You Down").

Album: Stormclouds in Heaven
After two years from the release of the critically acclaimed album, MIGHTY LONESOME MAN, Slim Hand Music is proud to announce the newest gospel-inspired album release from James Hand, titled STORMCLOUDS IN HEAVEN.
STORMCLOUDS IN HEAVEN, is a 14 song album of all originals gospel tunes, written by James, and is the culmination of heart-felt songs about praise, devotion, emotion and patriotism. Dedicated to long time guitarist Will Indian, this album was surely a work inspired from above.
If you're tired of the slickness of modern Nashville, do yourself a favor and buy the new CD by James Hand titled Stormclouds in Heaven, this album entwines the great southern gospel genre with a country bluegrass flavor, giving the listener toe tapping enjoyment they will love to hear in songs like WHY OH WHY and DEVIL AIN'T NO QUITTER, and counter balancing it all with the soul touching emotion on tunes like BABY'S PROMISE and NO ONE EVER DIES. Stormclouds in Heaven, the highly anticipated 6th nationally and internationally released album by James Hand, is sure to please a wide range of listening audiences.
