Out of the blue comes out this unreleased The Giraffes album “We Hear Music”, whopping 33 tracks of unreleased music.

The Giraffes started as a one man band, but later turned into a full-time band including drummer Mike Musburger (Fastbacks, Posies, Uptights), and multi-instrumentalist Jason Staczek.

“Founded by Chris Ballew, the former lead singer and songwriter for the multi-platinum artists The Presidents of the United States of America, The Giraffes’ first album, 13 Other Dimensions, was released in February 1998 and featured a made-up band of hand puppets invented by Chris. The group consists of Chris on acoustic guitar, Mike Musburger on drums and Jason Staczek on organ and clarinet.” – Written by Chris Ballew © 2000 Raw Poo Music (ASCAP)

Original email from Chris about this release:

“hey super fans!
SO I put a bunch of 8 track cassette stuff in the car a few weeks ago and I have been listening to it driving around. This is all stuff that never made its way onto a Giraffes record back in the day and I was a little blown away by some of it….enough so that I have decided to make a NEW Giraffes album JUST FOR YOU GUYS (and girl!).
I will send it to you via Hightail zipped up when it is finished (gotta do a little mastering and editing) and then you guys (and girl) can be the ones that share it with the world however you want. The only caveat is NO MONEY WILL CHANGE HANDS. I want this to be a FREE thank you record to you guys (and girl) primarily and then you can be the givers of the music to the others that would care out there in the world.
This will be a pretty juicy album with maybe a couple songs you have heard demos of but probably 99% totally unreleased and could top 30 tracks.
Why let the stuff rot on a hard drive right?
Gonna start plucking away at this soon…maybe release it in a couple weeks?
Cheers and I love you peeps!
chris”


SBE Fixes = Sector Boundary errors fixed. If you burn this old school style to a CD, now there won’t be annoying pops between tracks.

Presidents of the USA 2014-02-16 (early show) – PUSAfest Torrent

PRESIDENTS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (full acoustic set) – February 16, 2014 – Seattle, WA @ the Triple Door (PUSAFEST 2014, show 3 of 4)

What a lucky day. Not only the Pusafest 2014 acoustic (early) show at the Triple Door was taped, but also there is a full video of this concert available! Check out the issaquahwa’s youtube channel for more videos.

I used video from Youtube (by Issaquahwa) and the new audio source and clued them together. Some remastering was done to the audio track. Enjoy the dubbed version of “Sunshine”, which was performed for the second time? (First time was at the Paramount Theatre in 2010).

You can download the full audio show from the Dimeadozen website:

This was the 3rd of 4 shows for PUSAFEST this year, with the final show being later this night, and it sounds like this was their first full acoustic show ever. They’re also pretty sure “Sunshine” is being played for the first time. The show was a bunch of fun. I went to the electric show at the Showbox the night before, too, so that’ll be up sometime.

I think it sounds pretty good. Samples below.

New Song Alert: Presidents of the USA – Crown Victoria

Crown Victoria is the latest teaser from the upcoming Presidents of the USA “Kudos To You!” album

pusa_promo_2014

Release date for the Kudos To You! album is getting near, and the boys just release a new song “Crown Victoria”. Crown Victoria has a nice 90’s rock ballad feel, if you like the more mellow PUSA songs you’ll most likely enjoy this as well. It’s pretty close to Freaked Out And Small track “Tigerbomb”. I can’t wait to hear the whole album. The Long Winters’ John Roderick from The Long Winters’ is on background vocals.
