GAYNGS

When Ryan Olson decided to make a record with Solid Gold members Zack Coulter and Adam Hurlburt, it was clear to them what the result would be: a collection of drugged-up keyboards and slick bedroom production almost exclusively inspired by 10cc's "I'm Not In Love." To be fair, they weren't entirely off. What they didn't know was that it would spiral into a project of epic proportions, enlisting the talents of over 25 musicians from various scenes around the country, relocating the base of operations from Olson's Minneapolis bedroom/studio to the Wisconsin-based studio April Base, and the genesis of a musical family, GAYNGS.

It’s the perfect pairing, taking each listener through the “autumn of the American Era.” Gardens & Villa, Here We Go Magic, Bill Fay, GAYNGS and Donnie & Joe Emerson are just a few of the artists featured on the soundtrack.

The A.V. Club described ‘The Comedy’ as “the spiritual successor to Mike Nichols’ The Graduate and Carnal Knowledge.” New Video described it as a “powerful and provocative character study that touches a darkness behind the humor that resonates with viewers long after the story ends.”

“Tim Heidecker gives a compulsively fascinating performance.” – Variety

“By far one of the most wildly inappropriate and pitch black comedies I’ve ever seen in my life.” – Film Threat

“Transgressively brilliant…” – Village Voice

Bon Iver, Bushmills, and POLICA

Bon Iver is participating in the Bushmills “Since Way Back” promotion, which “celebrates the lives and brotherly relationships of artists and influencers across the world, and collaborates with each to produce creative, inspired content that reflects each of his passions.” There are painted billboards and printed ads featuring Justin Vernon, manager Nate Vernon, manager Kyle Frenette and Audio Engineer Brian Joseph. Justin and Nate’s father said in a statement via facebook status, “I’ve raised my boys to enjoy the finer things in life: whiskey among friends.” Our favorite part?  Justin is wearing a Jagjaguwar shirt in the photos. He interviewed at GQ, saying “we’re enjoying the shit out of it.”

Dan Huiting of MPLS.tv filmed the Bushmills after party of Bon Iver’s last show in Boston. The campaign gets a much-needed shot of estrogen with use of incredible new music by POLICA – the new musical project by Channy from GAYNGS. At the POLICA site you can hear “Dark Star” as well as “Lay Your Cards Out” featuring Bon Iver’s Mike Noyce.
