Teag & PK Single, Broadcast, and Gigs

Matt and I are pleased to announce that Teag & PK‘s debut single is now available! “Rocket” is part of 3-Way Singles Club, Volume Ten, released via Lansing label It Takes a Village to Make Records (ITAV Records). The monthly release series features three songs, one each from three regional bands, for $3. You can purchase our volume here. That’s equivalent to or cheaper than a trip to your coffee house of choice, and a great way to support local artists! And speaking of local artists, our volume also features Sunil Sawani and Small Houses.

We’re following this up with our return to Port Huron’s Raven Café this Thursday (02.23) evening, 7:30-10:30 PM. Playing there in December was a real treat, and we’re quite looking forward to heading back. Friday morning we’ll be making a couple of radio appearances on Lansing’s 89.7 WLNZ. We’ll be talking and (likely) playing on the Coffee Break Morning Show, and are slated for 9:45 AM. Then at noon we’ll hit the airwaves on The Grand River Radio Diner, 12:00-1:00 PM. For the latter performance, we’ll be playing live at Lansing’s Sir Pizza Grand Café. If you’re not in the greater Lansing area and want to catch any of Friday’s music, you can listen online here. Give a listen if you can!

We recorded our single at Deep Deep Pink, where we’ll be returning the week after next to begin work on our forthcoming album. Stay tuned for details on that.

MT-Headed updates

I’d like to take a moment to shamelessly plug my blog. (And since this is my website, who’ll stop me?) MT-Headed has steadily been plugging along over the last ~16 months, gradually gaining visitors and subscribers. (If you’re subscribed to this RSS feed, please hop on over to the blog feed and subscribe there also. And if you’re not subscribed to this one, here you go!) My recent post on ear protection, which I expected to receive little attention, was not only shared across the web by friends, colleagues, and strangers, but it was also plugged by Etymotic Research, Inc. This was unsolicited by me and a complete surprise:

This is the third time the blog has received such unexpected attention, and for that I’m quite thankful. (The first two instances were for my reviews of albums by PRISM Quartet and Dave Liebman, both of which were plugged by the artists via Facebook and Twitter.) Publicity aside, I’ve also begun a weekly annotated video series (“MTH-V”). And I’ve recently catalogued the “New Listen” and “MTH-V” posts here and here for ease of finding past entries, both of which are accessible from the blog’s menu.

In other news, Matt and I just got back from a great Teag & PK gig at Port Huron’s Raven Café. It’s a great establishment and it was our first visit; we hope to return soon!
