We are in the final furlong of production for Soundcrane and we are looking to release it to the world by the beginning of next week.
In the meantime, this project has brought some unusual collaborations out of the woodwork, proving that musicians can indeed play nice and get along. Here are a few of the teams striving to exceed the sum of their parts for your listening pleasure.
Shem Allen plays in Skinny Jean and Little Scout. Chris Perren plays in Mr. Maps and Aheadphonehome. They’ve collaborated previously on the Wicky Massive, early Mr. Maps material, and Skinny Jean’s “A Blessing” from Dolce Doggerel.
For soundcrane they are taking on the J-Rock mega hit “Konayuki” by Remioromen.
