Badman Celebrates Fifth with Hayden, Eitzel
Catherine Lewis reports:
San Francisco's Badman Recording Co. is celebrating its fifth year
anniversary this year with the release of a compilation entitled
Badman's Bedtime Maladies, which will include previously
released songs by My Morning Jacket, Rebecca Gates (Spinanes), Paula
Frazer (Tarnation) with Mark Eitzel, as well as songs from upcoming
Badman releases from Hayden, James William Hindle, Lanterna, and
Badman Recording Co. is a recording studio as well as a record
label-- artists who have recorded there include Paula Frazer,
American Music Club's Tim Mooney, and Red House Painter frontman Mark
Kozelek. The label got its start with the release of The Cherries'
"Crotchrocket" (which Badman head honcho Dylan Magierek recorded)--
since then, the label's roster has grown to include releases from
Mark Kozelek, the Posies, Dakota Suite, and other slowish
singer-songwriters, as well as a series of compilations benefitting
San Francisco's Shanti Project (a non-profit organization dedicated
to improving the quality of life for people living with HIV and
AIDS). Here's hoping Badman's next five years are equally as busy as
the first five. Tracklist:
01 James William Hindle - "Slumberland" [previously unreleased]
02 Ill Lit - "Diner Girl's"
03 My Morning Jacket - "Can You See the Hard Helmet on My Head?"
