As you should be aware by now, Ball of Wax Volume 35 will be a collection of love songs, to be released on Valentine’s Day. Right when I hatched this brilliant plan, Seattle booking treasure Mamma Casserole was working on a tribute to the band Love on Valentine’s Day. It seemed obvious that we needed to join forces, paying tribute both to Arthur Lee’s groundbreaking, criminally underrated band and the funny feeling you get in your heart (and other parts) when you’re really into someone. We found a great collection of artists to share their visions of love and Love, most of whom also have songs featured on the new volume of BoW. As always, everyone in the door gets a free copy of the new BoW disc.
Stay tuned to the blog to hear brand new love songs from Robert Deeble, Virgin of the Birds, Bandolier, Harbor Island, and Joshua Schramm featuring Fairy Robot . . . and many more brilliant artists (Sam Russell’s fine track kicked us off, of course), and we’ll see you at the Lo Fi on Valentine’s night!
