about

Seth Olinsky -
"I wrote this song called "Woody Guthrie's America," which we played at some of the shows on our last tour. We tried to record it and weren't totally happy with it. So we e-mailed a bunch of friends who are musicians to have them record different versions of it, and we'll just post it all free on the Internet. It's going back to the idea of folk where everyone played and reinterpreted songs to tell their own story. Everyone from free-jazz percussionists to electro composers to folk singers take it on."
