94.9 FM THE RIVER PRESENTS MIKE DOUGHTY LIVE AT THE RECORD EXCHANGE SEPT. 9 (HIS ONLY SHOW IN TOWN); GET HIS NEW ALBUM A WEEK BEFORE THE OFFICIAL RELEASE DATE!

MikeDoughty_by_DeborahLopez_0128-large94.9 FM The River presents Mike Doughty live at The Record Exchange (1105 W. Idaho St. in Downtown Boise) at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 9. This is Doughty’s only show in town, and fans will have the opportunity to purchase his new album “Stellar Motel” (CD or LP) a week before its official Sept. 16 release date! As always, this Record Exchange in-store event is free and all ages.

ABOUT MIKE DOUGHTY

Mike Doughty has built a successful solo career in the 14 years since his departure from Soul Coughing. In the fall of 2013, after famously eschewing his former band’s repertoire for most of his career, Doughty released an album of re-imagined Soul Coughing songs titled Circles Super Bon Bon… (the full title is 41 words long — a list of every song on the album) and toured the U.S. in support of it with Catherine Popper on upright bass, Pete Wilhoit on drums, and Doughty himself on guitar, turntables, and sampler. Now, Doughty returns with Live At Ken’s House, a recording of the live show, featuring many Soul Coughing songs that were arranged for the tour, but weren’t on the album. Live at Ken’s House was banged out in a single day, four days after the tour’s end.

“The band was pretty spectacular,” Doughty says, “and the shows were intense. Obviously, we were at maximum tightness after 32 shows, and I wanted to take immediate advantage of that.” Doughty, who has a tendency to be almost psychotically busy, will follow this live release with his next studio album, titled “Stellar Motel,” in September, and will tour the country extensively in the fall in support of both releases.

RECORD EXCHANGE ALIVE AFTER FIVE SEASON FINALE: THE BOTH AUG. 27!

theboth_photo_gal__photo_201861164Join us on Wednesday, Aug. 27, for the annual end-of-season Record Exchange Party at Alive After Five featuring The Both (Aimee Mann, Ted Leo). This free, all-ages concert on the Grove Plaza in Downtown Boise kicks off at 5 p.m. with Go Listen Boise opener Matt Hopper and the Roman Candles.

ABOUT THE BOTH
the both“Throughout the song and the album, each singer sounds freshened and energized- never diminished-by the collaboration.” – NPR Music

“The Both represents the pairing of two great … talents who go great together.” – Rolling Stone

“The project places the talents of the two artists in perfect harmony…” – The Los Angeles Times

“Coupled with Mann’s gift for a pop melody and Leo’s penchant for spiky, urgent guitars, the end result is a best-of-both-worlds situation.” – Boston Globe

“It isn’t just a collection of well-constructed tunes. It’s a unified album, in which sound is every bit as crucial as craft. Despite the formidable solo careers involved, The Both improbably sounds like the work of a band.” – Chicago Tribune

“Aimee Mann and Ted Leo have combined their eloquent, slightly off-kilter songwriting powers…” – SPIN

The Both is a collaborative project from critically acclaimed musicians Aimee Mann and Ted Leo. Building on a friendship forged while they were on tour together last year, it was Leo’s solo sets that piqued Mann’s interest in getting on stage with him and writing music together. Of the project, Mann notes, “Honestly, I feel like for the first time, I’m part of a rock band.”

The band’s all original songs were written as back-and-forth collaborations between Mann and Leo. With their differing musical vocabularies and mutual admiration for one another, the duo found working together to be a boon. “We were just like ‘Fuck it, let’s push and make it happen,’” notes Mann. “You really just have to go, ‘You know what, I have to trust that this other person’s instincts are good.’” Leo furthers, “I think as Aimee and I have gotten closer, we have realized how much in common we have and how much respect we have for what the other person does and what they’re bringing to the table. The writing process has largely been long distance, but it’s been line by line, verse by verse, part by part; we’ll send each other something and go back and forth until it’s finished.” The album was recorded in Los Angeles with Ryan Freeland, between stretches of touring in 2013, and produced by Mann’s longtime friend and band member Paul Bryan.

Mann began her solo career in 1993 with the album “Whatever” and made a name for herself through her independent success and the founding of her record label, SuperEgo. In addition to her solo work, she has appeared on many film soundtracks, composed the soundtrack for Paul Thomas Anderson’s much-lauded “Magnolia” and appeared as herself on the hit indie TV series “Portlandia.” The new collaboration follows Mann’s eighth studio album “Charmer,” which received national attention.

Punk/indie singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Leo is best known for his work with Ted Leo and the Pharmacists over the past fifteen years. His most recent album The Brutalist Bricks was released on Matador Records in 2010. Leo also kept up a consistent presence as a solo performer since the late 1990s and began playing with Mann in February 2012.
