Hey! We’re Skunkmello! We are a four piece rock and blues band from New York City. We’ve been playing together for about a year and in that time have recorded two EPs, one called “Whiskey & Oatmeal” (released November 16th, 2012) and another called “Lowlife Dreams”, which is about to be released on June 15th, 2013. Our first EP was recorded almost completely live in one night in the studio and, though it was very rushed in terms of production, was really well received. It drew us some really surprising and flattering comparisons to bands like The Black Keys and The Jimi Hendrix Experience, and we ended up getting a ton of great opportunities to play in new places all over the east coast of the United States because of it. We even had a couple radio stations play our songs, which was pretty wild.
Our new EP is called “Lowlife Dreams” and will be available on CD, iTunes, Spotify, BandCamp and other online stores on June 15th. It took about four months to record and mix, and represents a fuller, more meticulously produced side of our band. It’s also our first release as a four piece with our new synthesizer, piano and organ player. The EP was mastered by the brilliant Grammy award winning mastering engineer Brian Lucey of Magic Garden Mastering, who’s done some incredible work before us (Google him!) and did not disappoint this time.
We think it turned out great and hope you do, too.
