The days are winding down here to the release of Hollis Brown‘s new single, “Run Right To You.” The single will be officially available 28 Oct, but you can pre-order now. PRE-ORDER. Reaching back to their raw and energetic sessions for “Gets Loaded,” a critically lauded, song for song revisiting of The Velvet Underground’s seminal album, Hollis re-teamed with Don DiLego for the new single “Run Right To You.” It’s one of the songs who’s e energy bleeds through the recording. From vocalist Mike Montali’s raw lead to Jonathan Bonilla’s ragged guitar solo, “Run Right To You” captures everything that’s great about a band that has been a growing live act for years. The song was recorded at Velvet Elk Studios, deep ing the woods of Northeast PA, in just a couple takes. For the B-side to the single, the band chose to release a cover of Jesse Malin’s “She Don’t Love Me Now.” Recorded live in Italy, it’s a soulful and heartfelt take on what’s quickly becoming a live classic.

Velvet Elk Records releases Carl Anderson’s “Risk of Loss – Deluxe Edition”

“I think the first thing I heard from the record was ‘Separate Ways’ and it immediately reminded me of the best parts of what I liked about Bob Dylan’s Time Out of Mind. It took me back a bit to think that there wasn’t a wider audience that had heard it yet, and I wanted to figure out a way to change that.” – Don DiLego We’re extremely excited to announce Velvet Elk’s edition of Carl Anderson‘s lauded, Risk of Loss album, featuring previously unreleased tracks including the soul-swaying “Good Man,” and a broken-hearted live rendition of “Separate Ways.” No Depression labels Carl “an enormous songwriting talent.” And we’re not going to argue. You can pre-order the record, out Oct 7th, now. BUY – Risk of Loss
