Todd Farrell, currently of Benchmarks and formerly of Two Cow Garage, is stoked to announce his participation in One Great Tribute! A Love Letter to the Weakerthans. He offers his treatment of "Everything Must Go!," which features assistance from Camille Faulkner (Julien Baker, boygenius). The effort sees release November 15.
"I'm really proud to be part of this project. John K Samson is on my Mt. Rushmore of songwriters, and mental health is always at the forefront of my mind. It was a perfect fit," Farrell says. "We essentially recorded it over the course of one hour sessions on my lunch break for five days between my house and Jack's (Benchmarks) house. I sent the tracks to my friend Camille Faulkner (Julien Baker, boygenius), and she played violin and sang harmonies on the choruses and absolutely knocked it out of the park. Then I sent it to my friend Scotty Sandwich of Almost People, in Durham, NC, to mix. We barely got it in under the deadline, and it's a testament to the power of Dropbox in a world where no one has the time or money to dedicate a full day to a recording project. I think it came out beautifully, and am incredibly proud."
