December 11, 2014

NEW! GOV’T MULE – Dark Side Of The Mule
on 1CD or deluxe 3CD/DVD, or deluxe gatefold Mule-duty 2LP vinyl.

Back in 2008, Gov’t Mule played an epic three-hour gig at Boston’s Orpheum Theatre on Halloween night. The second set that evening saw the band performing a set list comprised entirely of Pink Floyd covers. Now, as the first official entry in a newly launched archival campaign, Gov’t Mule is releasing that memorable concert as a live covers album dubbed Dark Side of the Mule. The archival series seeks to use various performances from the band’s extensive vault to showcase their evolution over the years. “These new archival live releases just further [the concept of 2013's Shout!, which sounds like Gov't Mule but doesn't sound like anything we had ever done],” guitarist Warren Haynes told Classic Rock, “and allow us to highlight some of our influences as well as how far we’ve come since the first album.”
Dark Side of the Mule is available as a single CD and deluxe three-2CD/DVD combo (entire concert on 3cds + entire concert on 5.1 surround DVD video!), and double-vinyl edition.

Watch a trailer for the release below, followed by a tracklisting:

NEW, somewhat limited and supa dang nice —
VARIOUS ARTISTS WHILE NO ONE WAS LOOKING: Toasting 20 Years of Bloodshot Records, 2CD set
DELUXE LP is a VERY limited of 500 with RED VINYL. 3 LP Vinyl set includes digital download card for album MP3s and bonus artwork.

With a heady brew of resilience, stalwart dedication, Cervantes-level delusion and mulish determination on behalf of music and artists we love, and luck-serendipity, even-Bloodshot Records has improbably survived 20 years in the venal snake pit that is the music industry. Sooooo: 38 artists, including Andrew Bird, Blitzen Trapper, Superchunk, Hiss Golden Messenger, Chuck Prophet (my man!), Ted Leo, Ben Kweller, Chris Shiflett (of Foo Fighters), Minus 5, Andrew Bird/Nora O’Connor, two Gallants, Samuel Fogarino (of Interpol), Kvin “Shinyribs” Russell. Into It. Over It. Shakey Graves, and more covering songs from Bloodshot’s 20-year history. 38 songs from the Bloodshot catalog reemerge covered by friends and heroes of ours in oft-head-craning styles from gritty punk to back porch folk, dark bedroom new wave to straight up honky tonk, and lush power pop to new emo.

on 2CD/3LP — tasty!
