Willard Grant Conspiracy’s new song from "Let It Roll" (Loose Music, March 27)

After 18 months or so of doing this little project called Songs:Illinois, the time I’ve put in is starting to pay off. My visibility is just at the point where I can post the cream of the crop. For instance I just got this new song from the upcoming Willard Grant Conspiracy cd out in March on Loose Records called Let It Roll. Now if I can just get something from the upcoming Giant Sand gospel record on Thrill Jockey.

This is just one song from a very diverse record. Everything from folk country to mariachi to raging rock are included on this their 6th album. This song combines all of the trademark WGC sounds in one place; vocals like a weary, disgruntled Steve Earl, music like a loose Calexico and tempo shifts like something from Spoon. Guests include members of Lambchop and Dream Syndicate and Mary Lorson of Madder Rose. There’s a video for another song off the new record here (it’s as sad and depressing as the mp3 below). Look for this one towards the end of March.

    Congrats on the high profile track – much appreciated. And Madder Rose, I haven’t heard that name in years…

    Yes, congrats – you have graduated from being a minor spoke to a cog in the massive maw of the music marketing machine. Woo-hoo, you rule.

    that’s pretty mean spirited anonymous, and on top of that no matter how much marketing you do to WGC they are only going to appeal to a small number of diehard music fans. by no means is this part of the “music marketing machine”

    In reply to the comments on this page, Loose Music is neither massive, nor has any ‘marketing machine’. People who love what we put out, such as Craig, really help us because we can’t afford he kind of wide exposure and promotion a record like ‘Let it Roll’ deserves.

    Isn’t that what these mp3 blogs should be about?
