Check out our newly expanded “Sampler” on Bandcamp

Missing the dulcet tones of Powderhouse? Check out our newly expanded “Sampler” on Bandcamp. It’s like a greatest hits album (except we didn’t have any hits), with songs taken from all 4 of our “official” releases plus one fan-favorite cover song. We think you’ll dig it!

New releases from the Powderhouse archives….

So, with all this free time on our hands, we’ve been going through the Powderhouse archives and we were able to put together 2 new digital releases for your listening pleasure. The first is called “Live at FOC Studios 2016/2017 (Demos)”.  It’s a collection of seven original songs that we were working on before going on hiatus at the end of 2017. All songs were recorded live during rehearsals at FOC Studios during 2016 and 2017 with no overdubs and minimal editing. The first three tracks are are “new” songs (tracks 1-3) that were written and arranged after the recording sessions for the EP “Spark”. The next two songs (tracks 4 & 5) are previously unreleased “old” songs with updated arrangements; the last tracks (6 & 7) are “old” songs that were previously released on the 2010 LP “In The Meantime” but with new arrangements. You can listen/download it from our BandCamp page:

The second release is called “Covers Vol. II”. As the title suggests, it’s a collection of eleven (11!) cover songs that the band was working on before going on hiatus at the end of 2017. Some of these songs were played at gigs, some never made it out of the basement. All songs were recorded live during rehearsals at FOC Studios during 2016 & 2017, with no overdubs and minimal editing. You can check it out here:

Who knows, maybe when things get back to “normal” and we can all go out and attend live music shows again, we’ll get our act together and play some of these songs again in front of a live audience. Stay strong and keep healthy! Hoping for the best in 2021.
