The Homeless Gospel Choir Release New Album Fourth Dimension Intervention
Posted on September 2nd, 2022

The Homeless Gospel Choir release new album ahead of tour dates with My Chemical Romance and Thursday.

Today, punks THE HOMELESS GOSPEL CHOIR have released their new album titled Fourth Dimension Intervention across all streaming platforms and Bandcamp via Don Giovanni Records.

Alongside the surprise release, the band have released three music videos for the album tracks "BRAINWASHBRAINWASH", "Future Ghosts" and "RIPOFF" as well as a short 15-minute film Fourth Dimension Intervention: The Movie.

The album is available to stream across all platforms, and to order HERE

The Homeless Gospel Choir started in 2009 as the solo project of Derek Zanetti. He released three albums before the addition of Matt Miller (Endless Mike and the Beagle Club, Wingnut Dishwashers Union) and Megan Schroer (Boys, Kitty Cat Fan Club) for 2020's This Land is Your Landfill. They were joined by Maura Weaver (Mixtapes, Ogikubo Station) and Craig Luckman (Belly Boys, Small Pollen) for their first full band tours in 2019. Now a permanent lineup, The Homeless Gospel Choir's Fourth Dimension Intervention is the first album featuring all five members.

Paranoid and lazy, never knowing who is your friend and who is just watching a screen, never really hungry and never satisfied. Fever Dreams and Daymares of Family Dinners with the network news so loud you can hear the white noise pop like firecrackers. Floating through this dimension on the path of least resistance, unnoticed and unbothered til you’re old enough to die. The pitiful fantasy of having people cry at your funeral, while your spirit watches from the rafters. Feeling lost in your body like a ghost under a bed sheet.

Fourth Dimension Intervention by The Homeless Gospel Choir was recorded over five days in August 2021 at The Lodge KY by John Hoffman. It's the first album to feature all five members of the band, the first self produced album, and the first full length to be released by Don Giovanni, on Sept 2 2022.

The Homeless Gospel Choir are about to embark on a lengthy US tour, including dates with My Chemical Romance and Thursday.

Paisley Fields Announces New Album Limp Wrist
Posted on May 31st, 2022

The country songwriter and Lavender Country pianist goes full-Nashville on the production of his forthcoming album, out August 26

"Paisley Fields brings a roguish cabaret-style sensibility, describing the often-solitary experience of many gay men with a knowing mixture of humor and sadness."
- Rolling Stone

"Paisley Fields is carrying the torch for the next generation of country artists like me; the real deal; a true country badass, and one of my best girlfriends. I was lucky to have him play keyboard for Lavender Country. Put Paisley on your radar."
- Lavender Country's Patrick Haggerty


Don Giovanni Records has announced that country singer/songwriter PAISLEY FIELDS will release his new album Limp Wrist on August 26, 2022. Paisley is a touring band member of foundational queer-country icons Lavender Country.

Today, Fields has released the album's first single along with a music video for "Jesus Loving American Guy (Limp Wrist)" a call-out track addressing the hypocrisy of so-called Christians who weaponize their religion to condemn people whose beliefs or identities aren't completely in line with their own. The track is available now across all streaming platforms and Bandcamp now, and the video can be seen HERE.

Limp Wrist is available for pre-order now HERE.

Active since 2013, Paisley Fields is a singer, songwriter, and bandleader splitting time between Brooklyn, New York and Nashville, Tennessee.

A touring member of the newly reformed queer-country icons Lavender Country, Paisley also played keyboard on their 2022 album Blackberry Rose.

On Limp Wrist, Paisley draws inspiration from queer icon Andy Warhol and a myriad of drag artists with whom he’s collaborated. His years of experience in Manhattan piano bars did not diminish his love for country music, and he has already released two albums that pay homage to the music of his youth.

Limp Wrist is an exploration of where rural queerness intersects religion. Paisley’s family were devout Catholics, and he served as the official church pianist in his parish throughout his teens, playing every Sunday.

Paisley Fields has a message for so-called "Christians" who weaponize their religion to condemn people whose beliefs or identities aren't completely in line with their own. You can hear that message loud and clear in "Jesus Loving American Guy (Limp Wrist)". The video takes aim at right-wing media and political figures. It's light-hearted and poppy, balancing the quite serious subject matter of the lyrical content.

The songs on Limp Wrist are deeply personal, and often touch on what it was like to grow up closeted and queer in rural Iowa in the early 2000s. “Black Hawk County Line” tells the story of Paisley being outed by a former friend his senior year in high school, “Dial Up Lover” is about logging on to gay AOL chat rooms to find other queers in the area, and “Plastic Rosary” recounts the experience of being told he’ll never get into heaven while praying the rosary.

The most personal and biographical moment comes during “Iowa”, which recounts the tragic murder of Matthew Shepard, and the visceral fear he had to wrestle with since he was already aware of how different he was.

The album ends on an uplifting note, sharing a message of friendship and hope with "Tomorrow Finds a Way".

The stories are his, but the feelings they convey – love, loneliness, lust, fear – are still universal.

Limp Wrist Track List:

  1. Black Hawk Country Line
  2. Ain't Built For Speed
  3. Iowa
  4. Dial Up Lover
  5. Junkyard Angel
  6. Flex
  7. Giddy Up Saturday Night
  8. Jesus Loving American Guy (Limp Wrist)
  9. Catch Me
  10. Plastic Rosary
  11. Canyon
  12. Tomorrow Finds A Way

Mikey Erg - Love At Leeds out June 24th!
Posted on April 26th, 2022

"Mikey Erg continues to set the gold standard for hooky punk love songs. Love at Leeds is him at the top of his songwriting game—just one finely tuned ear-worm after another." - Dan Ozzi

The album was recorded by Steve Albini at his iconic Electrical Audio Studios in Chicago IL. The band features DIY working class hero Jeff Rosenstock on lead guitar and background vocals.

Today, Mikey released the album's first single "Almost Like Judee Sill" an ode to the late, great tragic songwriter in a tight two minute power pop-sprint. The track is available now across all streaming platforms and Bandcamp now.


Love At Leeds is the realization of many dreams for Mikey Erg. A lifelong music obsessive, growing up in the early 90’s, there was one sound he’d always hoped to capture on his recordings. The sound of Steve Albini. Steve’s credits include The Pixies, PJ Harvey, Jimmy Page & Robert Plant and of course Nirvana’s third LP In Utero: one of Mikey’s absolute favorite records.

Mikey had never in his twenty-plus year recording career ever gotten to make a fully analog recording. Love At Leeds was the perfect time to rectify all of that. Using the group of musicians that helped him realize his debut solo LP Tentative Decisions (Jeff Rosenstock, Alex Clute & Lou Hanman), he Headed to Chicago to make this dream a reality.

Recorded and mixed in just five days, Love at Leeds is a swift twenty five minute long grunge-pop tour de force. Once the album was complete, Steve and his trusty razor blade compiled the master mix reels and sent the band on their way. The tapes then made the journey to Hollywood California to the legendary Bernie Grundman Mastering facility to be mastered and cut straight to lacquer disc by Chris Bellman (Frank Zappa, Neil Young, Kenny Dorham, Pearl Jam).

Mikey, who takes his name from the seminal mid-2000s NJ pop-punk band THE ERGS who he was drummer and principal songwriter for, is a decades-long fixture in the DIY punk rock scene, directly influencing the next generation of power pop and punk bands as he concurrently continues his solo songwriting career.

The first single "Almost Like Judee Sill" - streaming everywhere now - is a breakneck tight two minute melodic pop gem that will demand several subsequent re-listens.

The band had this to say about the decision to cover the two-tone classic:
"Early on in the pandemic we got asked to cover a 1980s punk rock song for a special edition release of the comic What's the Furthest Place From Here. Mike immediately said "We should do a ska song" to which Jarrett replied "Cool. It should be The Selecter" followed quickly with Marissa stating "Great. Let's do On My Radio." It happened over the course of about 30 seconds. I don't know if we have ever made such a quick decision as a band. Many people are familiar with The Specials but The Selecter should be just as renowned. Their first string of singles and first LP are legendary and Pauline Black's live performances, as captured in Dance Craze, are absolutely transcendent."
