NYC natives Hollis Brown release the Nothing & The Famous No One EP, a record that is lush, raw and full of heart, today. The band recently revealed the adventurous video for “Ride On The Train,” a triumphant song of new beginnings lead by warm, crackling guitar over booming piano. Download the “Ride On The Train” MP3 HERE and you’re welcome to post + share the song and video! Nothing & The Famous No One is available at iTunes and all digital retailers. The band is also offering the EP as a FREE download on Bandcamp.
Nothing & The Famous No One opens with the emotionally charged, bluesy love ballad, “Gypsy Black Cat.” The classic rock & roll track “Spoonful” features guest vocals by Deer Tick’s John McCauley. The band recorded Nothing & The Famous No One with producer Adam Landry (Deer Tick, Middle Brother) in Nashville during the summer of 2011. Taking great care to create a warm, vintage sound, the tracks were recorded live, straight to analog tape.
A collection of soulful tunes, the four-track EP takes listeners to the Nashville cabin offering a taste of the band’s energized live show. Be sure to catch the band live in PA and NYC this month!
