Johnny Dowd has posted a stream of Paralyzed, a track from the handmade 2CD set of rare Neon Baptist recordings, one of the perks of his campaign at Indiegogo to cover the expenses for recording of his new album Execute American Folklore.. He has reached his goal of $15,000:
We reached our goal at Indiegogo last evening! Thanks to everyone who contributed to my campaign for my new album, “Execute American Folkore.“ You had already opened your hearts to me, and when I asked you to open your wallets, you really came through. I can’t thank you enough.
The campaign will stay open until the previously set deadline—this coming Saturday, July 2 (11:59 PM, PDT). Perks are still available until then. So if there was something you meant to get, you can do so through Saturday. Funds over the goal will also go to costs connected to the new album.
Paralyzed was recorded on April 27, 1991, at The Nines in Ithaca, NY. Besides Johnny Dowd, you’ll hear Dave Hinkle, Jennifer Edmondson, Mike Edmondson, Cally Arthur, and Max Ormond.
The headmaster of trashcan Americana will be on tour in Europe this Fall. Park Doing is the support act for the first two weeks (October 12 through 23) and Mark Lotterman for the final week (October 24 through 30).Live dates:
