Date added: 04/23/2012 CJ Boyd "West Coasting Vol. 1" Released Today!

Oh happy release day... the new album from our favorite nomadic bass player CJ Boyd is released today! The wildly ambitious West Coasting Vol. 1 - Dreams Like This Must Die (Seattle circa 91) is CJ Boyd's attempt at a grunge era "covers album". That's right. Seattle sounds are re-worked and scrambled into two 20-minute atmospheric movements. Songs slowly build from singular, meditative bass lines into explosive, layered, and hugely complex walls of sound - only to realize "wait, is that temple of the dog?!?!".

The album is released today on White Vinyl, Cassette and Digital Download!
