The end of Geronimo! and a new beginning for Extra Happy Ghost!!!

Before Geronimo! disappears from the Exploding in Sound roster, and for good, they'll be releasing their final three tracks on the EIS-released, limited edition cassette Buzz Yr. Girlfriend Vol. 4: Why Did You Leave Me?, due for a March 31 release. This is a fabulous way to go out. Their last show will be at the Beat Kitchen in Chicago on March 28 -- tickets available here.

This is sort of music made specifically for the white, bearded guy in plaid, but Calgary's Astral Swans, a project of Matthew Swann, will be releasing a nice little loner rock album on Arts and Crafts tomorrow. All My Favorite Singers Are Willie Nelson is rather bare bones, mildly distorted and moody, the stuff that fans of Feist and Bryan Webb would most certainly be happy to have.

This will be the first release for Madic Records, and the first for Swann under the Astral Swans name (see his 2011 release as Extra Happy Ghost!!!).
