From their website:
Flowerpot are teaming up with the Communion team for an original and extremely exciting project. In this one week in July we’re turning the venue into a recording studio, bands will be invited to The Flowerpot with the idea of collaborating with other musicians. Songs will be written, songs will be recorded, gigs will be played, gigs will be recorded, photos will be taken and films will be made. The whole thing will then be compiled into a double album that will be released later in the year.
So who will be involved in this effort? According to the website, Red Hot Velvet, there will be several of the Communion Music artists, including, yes, one Mr. Marcus Foster!
The likes of Mt Desolation, Lissie, Angus & Julia Stone, Kill It Kid, Matthew & The Atlas and members of Mumford & Sons will spend the week working on new songs together, alongside a host of exciting young artists including Communion signing Marcus Foster, Kyla La Grange, and The Staves all for a future album release.
And here I was all sadpanda missing him! Obviously he reads SoS and decided to let me know what’s been going on*. Duh.
Now just because we are over here in the States doesn’t mean that we won’t be able to join in the fun, so to speak. What do I mean by that?? Well, upon further investigation, I noticed on the Communion website a log-in section for exclusive content of this upcoming project. There are only a couple of test posts up currently, but I am hoping that this page will be updated nightly with small samples of each night. One can only hope, right? So, if you are interested, take a moment and register yourself HERE. It looks to be hosted on a wordpress format so I am thinking that if you already have a WP login that you can just use that. I went ahead and set up a new one, specifically for their site so if your current log-in doesn’t work….well….then feel free to leave me rude comments about how I wasted your time.
So, are you as excited about this as I am?? Or do you live in London and plan on attending a session or six two? If you are, please let us know! I would love to hear about this from someone who is there!
