This split 7″ vinyl project marks the first recorded collaboration between these two Michigan-based Americana bands – Red Tail Ring and Lindsay Lou & The Flatbellys. On side A of “The New Roots Exchange, Vol. 1” the listener gets to sit in on what could be a jam session after hours at a festival. Two traditional numbers are performed live in studio by all of the members of both groups. Side B features a musical trade, with re-imaginings from both bands of one another’s songwriting.
Physical vinyl + digital download + barn session bonus tracks are all available exclusively on Earthwork Music. ITunes provides solely the digital version of the main four vinyl tracks.
