CALAMITY DRENCHING

Team Love will release McCarthy Trenching‘s “Calamity Drenching” on September 23.

McCarthy Trenching spent most of 2007 touring, with an extended opening slot on the Bright Eyes Cassadaga tour, a date here and there warming the stage with the likes of M. Ward, Victoria Williams, Jason Isbell, Mark Olson and even radio hit Peter, Bjorn & John.

Then McCarthy Trenching came home for a bad Nebraska winter, spending most of our time shoveling snow and recording songs.

McCarthy Trenching prefers to record at home, since there is so much snow-shoveling to do during the winter.  All of the songs were recorded on 8-track tape machines, mostly in the living room, because that’s where the piano is.

Listen to:

Mormon Girl Blues
Roasting Song
Cassette Tape Massacre
