Just wanted to say hello and happy holidays really quick. Ada Jane is alive and well and nearly finished w/ a new record. I should have plenty more info about that in the next few months. Like everybody making/releasing any form of art right now, we’re trying to figure out the best/most cost effective/interesting way to release this record. We’ll keep you updated on the how’s and when’s of the record release in the coming months.
Some older releases to re-visit:
The Pauses Between: This 7 inch book “The Pauses Between” is a collection of medium format Polaroid photographs taken by Leslie Ostrander and includes a 6 song EP written and recorded by Matt Marka. The music and images are put together because they are meant to be experienced simultaneously. http://mattmarka.bandcamp.com/
Under: Ada Jane’s LP, “Under”, is quite a departure from the Minneapolis rock sounds of their 2009 LP, “Again…Again.” “Under”, is a raw, dark song cycle with moments of beauty and clarity peeking through the periphery “Under” is loosely about life in North Minneapolis, financial struggles, and the passing of time and people. Recorded and mixed in late 2011 and early 2012 at Matt Marka’s home studio, and featuring a guest appearance on trumpet by Dan Eikmeier (Davina & the Vagabonds) http://adajane.bandcamp.com/
Over: Ada Jane’s new EP, “Over”, is the sister release to the bands September 2012 LP, “Under.” The “Over” EP is simply a brief return to rock music for Ada Jane. Featuring the single, “Crawling To The End Of The Year.” http://adajane.bandcamp.com/
As always, thanks for your support. See you in 2016.
Matt Marka & Ada Jane
