England’s purveyors of "schrammel-pop" were back Halloween'19 and mixed Jetstream Pony - their excellent, eleven-song debut, which drops May 22 on KUS (EU) and Shelflife (USA). It's Fine is the first single and you can buy it and pre-order the blue-splatter or orange vinyl, full-length via Bandcamp.


Singer-songwriter, Garret Johnson, hails from Morris, Illinois 60 miles southwest of Chicago. He arrived at Kouderay in the late winter of 2017 and sporadically reappears to create music in our kitchen. These two songs comprise what has been affectionately referred to as The Shakey Toothpick Sessions.


In 1987, The Wildroots were enjoying a streak of good fortune as one of Chicago's up & comers.  Recorded at the Rivera Theater in Chicago by the legendary Timothy Powell and his MetroMobile location recording truck & crew, they performed on a bill for 93'XRT FM at their annual Christmas For The Kids benefit concert, hosted by Radio Hall of Famer, DJ Terri Hemmert.


Remixer/composer or maybe your multi-instrumental, ex-bandmate, C54 has been remixing the remains of the day since joining forces with a wide array of singer-songwriters, bands, and multimedia types. 

This is the first composition ever recorded at Kouderay - a dark ambient, atmospheric improvisation tracked during soundcheck before a Lilypad Records' session was about to load in.
