“Shock O’Barack” by The Standstill – free download until 2013

With the release of Endless Winter, the new album from The Standstill, we are giving away the prologue of the album for free, via Soundcloud.  The track is called “Shock O’ Barack” and it will be available for download until 2013 begins.

It was recorded the September before Barack Obama’s first election.  Now it feels appropriate that it is being released just after his second.

Jeff Maynard, the primary writer and arranger, has the same birthday as Obama.  Honestly, though, I have no idea if he really has any political opinions, himself.  He seems the lover, not fighter, type…usually.  In fact, this was kept on the “incomplete” list after the recording sessions, and “Shock O’Barack” may or may not have only been seen as a temporary, working title.

In the end, though, it sets the time well for the winter that is upon us.  Enjoy.  And if you like it, please check out the rest of it on Spotify or Itunes or something.

Endless Winter by The Standstill to be released 11.13.2012

This is the second collection of songs to be released by the elusive Jeff Maynard.  Where his previous outing, What Happened to Turn Signals? (released under the ridiculously named but critically acclaimed “Skippy and the Bellbottoms” moniker) found Maynard performing each instrument himself, this time he has employed a quartet of some of Tennessee’s finest musicians: Kenny Gilbert, Nathan Brown, Joshua Russell and Christine Hale.  

 Endless Winter was recorded during a two-day period of live sessions.  It’s sound runs a gauntlet of indie influences, nodding to such acts as The Shins, Nada Surf, My Morning Jacket, a touch of early Radiohead, and a formidable Pixies cover.  The songs, themselves, examine the nuances of a dissipating relationship from an often matter-of-factly, emotional vantage point.

 This collection is the seventeenth release from El Deth.  It will be digitally available on Spotify, iTunes, Amazon,  and all other major online distributors on November 13th, 2012.
