Of the Album and Single, Simone says:
“Isn’t it wild how, when it comes to matters of the heart, we can start out so fanatical, so certain, only to end up as strangers in the end? Remote even to ourselves over time, strangers in the mirror…
Molly-O! is a bit of a tongue-in-cheek salute/requiem to the itinerant panhandler I was as a kid, an exercise in not taking one’s early sins or one’s current self too seriously.”
36¢ is The Lowest Pair’s debut record recorded months after Kendl Winter (Olympia Washington) and Palmer T. Lee (Minnesota) decided to form the primarily double banjo outfit. Recorded and engineered by Dave Simonett (Trampled by Turtles) at Suburban Dad Studios, it’s the early pickin’s, sweet off the tree, a newly formed endaeavor by two seasoned pros. The duo swap lead vocals throughout the album’s 11 tracks, combining Kendl’s banjo skills with Palmer’s midwestern croon. Prior to this Kendl has released 3 full length albums under her name for K Records and Palmer has released two albums with his band Boys n’ the Barrels. Palmer has also performed with Drew Peterson and The Dead Pigeons.
36¢ will be released on January 14, 2014. Pre-orders are at our webstore

Team Love is happy to announce Miwi La Lupa’s album ‘New Way Home,’ in stores this January. Pre-orders are up at our webstore. Check out what RELIX had to say about the first single, ‘Radio’, and stream it at their website.
New Way Home, MiWi’s debut album on Team Love, is the result of life taking an unexpected turn. With the help of Monica Frisell, the songs began to take shape in early 2013. As things developed, friends such as Joanna Warren, Curtis Fowlkes, Rob Jost, Mara Kaye, Natalie John, Timothy Allen, Bill Frisell, Conor Elmes, and Conor Oberst, all enthused at the sound, eagerly jumped in to lend a hand. New Way Homeis a short, immediate, and catchy album, but its real magic lies in its ability to invoke a wide range of sonic diversity while not losing sight of its singular vision. A track like “Ashes To The Wind” invokes legendary bluesman Howlin’ Wolf, while “Here I Am” positions itself neatly between singer-songwriters like Ron Sexsmith and Stuart Murdoch. The album’s songs range from playfully vengeful (“Everybody’s Fuckin’ With Me”) to sorrowfully serious (“New Moon”).
MiWi’s voice is frank, his phrasing crisp, his lyrics easy to grasp yet full of twists. The songs document a season in a life, offering empathy to the listener while asking for the same in return. New Way Home comes out on Team Love Records January 21, 2014.
