“Never Had a Bad Idea” – out May 5!

We’re thrilled to announce that our new single, “Never Had a Bad Idea,” will be released on May 5!

The A-side pays sonic tribute to His Purple Majesty, Prince Rogers Nelson, while the B-side revisits “Better to be Broken Than Blind” (from 2013′s Someone Else’s Cake) through a dub lens. Both of these Johnny Sangster-produced tunes are sure to get the blood flowing to your erogenous zones, and we can’t wait to share them with you!

More soon,

RJM

August NW shows with Chuck Prophet!

We’re proud to be supporting our pal Chuck Prophet and his cracking band the Mission Express for a couple of Northwest shows next week:

08.07.14McMenamin’s White Eagle – Portland, OR – 8:30pm – $15 (tickets)
08.09.14Slim’s Last Chance – Seattle, WA – 9pm – $15 (tickets)

For logistical reasons, we’ll be doing the Portland show as the “Lincoln & Dan power duo” (guitar/keys), but we’ll be back in action as the full band for Saturday’s show in Seattle. Both venues are very small, so advance tickets are highly recommended. Don’t miss this chance to see Chuck preview songs from his forthcoming record Night Surfer, out 9/23.

Hope to see our PDX and Seattle pals at the shows!

High Dive May 16

poster by Jay Bryant

Greetings, friends! We’ve had a very relaxing break, but we’re chomping at the bit to get back onstage!

To that end, we’ve got a very cool show coming up this Friday, May 16 at the High Dive in Seattle’s Fremont neighborhood. Our friends Gibraltar will open the show, and veteran songsmith Gerald Collier and his band headline. RJM hits the stage at 10:30pm.

We won’t be playing many club shows this year, as we focus on finishing the follow-up to Someone Else’s Cake, so we hope to see all of our pals out at this one – we’ve missed you!
