New album, Incandescent, from Greater Pacific out September 4th, 2012

The debut full length album from Greater Pacific sees its release on September 4th right here on Yer Bird Records!  We are excited to have the crew back after their EP release of 'Rainfall' early last year.  This time you find the album Incandescent a full 12 tracks immersed in their signature laid back Americana.  You might even get some keyboards alongside that great pedal steel!

Also of note, the original artwork for the cover is from new friend Karl Haglund - check him out on his website here.

Take a listen below to And You All Remain With Me from the new album, Incandescent!

See some videos below and make sure to visit the original post on the CXCW site to give it a "Like!" as well.

New Videos for Hezekiah Jones and Greater Pacific!

Busy week for Yer Bird Records and videos!  Both Hezekiah Jones and Greater Pacific unveiled videos for songs from new and upcoming releases.

To start, earlier this week Slowcoustic premiered the video for Hezekiah Jones "Lift the Shadow From This Heart" from the upcoming album "Have You Seen Our New Fort?".  The video was created by Morgan King (you know, THE Morgan King who founded Yer Bird Records) and it is a true experience.  Combined with the eerie but surprisingly peaceful footage, the stunning track from Hezekiah Jones simply makes it a keeper.  Watch it below.

We also had a nice surprise in a great animation video for Greater Pacific's "Your History" - the video was created completely in Adobe Flash by Sean BokenKamp.  It's a bit campy, a lot of fun and it is another excuse to listen to the fantastic Greater Pacific EP!  Listen and watch below.

December brings some "festive" news in a Greater Pacific release!

We have eluded to this on our Facebook page, but we wanted everyone to be up to speed and know that we are eagerly planning a new release by Greater Pacific!

January 2011 will see a release of a 6 track digital EP from the band that consists of members of the acclaimed Travel By Sea (check them out if you can, highly recommended).  You can feel the connection they have to both projects and the sound of Kyle Kersten's voice and John Phinney's pedal steel will immediately feel like home.

You can check out a little more about them on their artist page (see here) and because it is December, let's start thinking about the season!  Below you will find a nice track recorded by Greater Pacific for just this reason: take a moment and listen to Let It Snow.

"Let It Snow" - Greater Pacific

Enjoy your December everyone!
