Two spectacular new pieces of vinyl grace the Yep Roc Store today – Chuck Prophet’s Mexico City-inspired album, ¡Let Freedom Ring!, and John Doe’s star-studded A Year In The Wilderness.
Chuck Prophet made ¡Let Freedom Ring! in Mexico City in 2009, a time and place when Swine Flu paranoia was paired with a renaissance brought on by the growing cultural influence of the Internet. Consequentially, ¡Let Freedom Ring! billows with primal color and sound, evidenced by Prophet’s return to the direct “two guitars, bass and drums” rock music of his past.
While recording A Year In The Wilderness, John Doe invited his friends and frequent conspirators to help him interpret songs that came fast and hard. Doe dubs the Wilderness sessions, “A scary and wondrous process where a blast of intuition and force that takes only moments to realize, but that can last forever and carry consequences you never imagined.” Guest stars appearing on A Year in the Wilderness include Dave Alvin, Jill Sobule, Kathleen Edwards, Dan Auerbach (from The Black Keys), Greg Leisz and Aimee Mann.
Both LP’s are now available HERE at the Yep Roc Store.Tags: A Year In The Wilderness, Chuck Prophet, John Doe, Let Freedom Ring, Vinyl
