READ ALL ABOUT IT
I have written three wee instrumental pieces and released them digitally on SoundCloud and Bandcamp, and here on the website.
It is called Pro and Contra. Enjoy it wisely, and fully.
Hospital Music is out in all digital sources, including in the Shoppe here on YoungWeather.com. iTunes, Spotify, Bandcamp, Amazon, etc. are all represented.
You can also get Hospital Music as an LP, on 180g high-quality acetate. You get a free download with the LP version, of course. This is available at shows, and in the online Shoppe.
There is also a new T Shirt, limited edition to Hospital Music's release in limited quantites, available, yes, you guessed it, the Shoppe!
Young Weather set to release a new LP, entitled Hospital Music.
Hospital Music is the follow up to 2013's Geographies, which saw Young Weather (Dustin Ragland, with various, frequent collaborators) consolidate an electro-rock collage into varying themes per song. Written in between another work in progress, Hospital Music chronicles the tumult of an artist navigating the constant shifting of musical life, the terror of anxiety and panic, and a stormy entrance into parenthood. Ragland continues the journey of welding synthetic and organic musical instruments on this LP - including using only vocal samples from local OKC artists for the entirety of the synthesis that is used. Letting the drums be a bit more wild, the lyrics taut and uncomfortable at times, and the layers never get too dense, Hospital Music is the sound of limits in love, consciousness, and emotional imagination - pressed against and transgressed to create something vital.
Preorder the 180 gram LP at https://qrates.com/artists/youngweather/items/11670
Hospital Music is for pre sale at Qrates, a vinyl press and preorder company.
To make costs all even out, the LP is 21$ US, but to help fill that hard fought money for each purchaser, each LP order includes:
A 180 gram LP record shipped to you
A free Young Weather t shirt
A free custom art print with handwritten lyrics (you are welcome to choose your song - email email@example.com with your selection - otherwise Dustin will choose)
Free digital download of MP3, AAC, or other hi- or lo-res format.
Free digital download of ambient acoustic re-imaginings of each song
Hospital Music will also be available on iTunes, Spotify, Bandcamp, and the usual spots sometime in early June, 2016. While streaming sites are excellent ways to listen on the go, share with others, etc. it helps all artists immensely when you invest in their work via purchase, digitally, or otherwise. Many, many thanks.
