Some years ago I was involved in Brian Getnick’s performance art project “Memories” (+ Corey Fogel, Ezra Buchla) and we recorded a bunch of songs. That album is now available as a cassette or digital download from Practical Records!
Brian also made gorgeous music videos for the songs that have just been released to Vimeo. Here’s one for “The Eel:”

“UGA creative writing PhD candidate and recent Los Angeles transplant Claire Cronin specializes in a deceptively delicate style of folk music that quickly dissipates but leaves its mark behind—the sound of faint memories, warm breath in winter. Over and Through, a collection of 10 songs culled from the past several years of writing and recording and released last September on cassette via the Ba Da Bing label, is a fine showcase of Cronin’s raw talent, featuring shades of Jason Molina and Chan Marshall. She’ll appear on campus in the Dodd Galleries for a special afternoon performance, joined by Ezra Buchla on viola and tenor guitar.”
