Dutchess & Duke & Greg

Greg Ashley is packing his warm clothes for a jag across America with the Dutchess & The Duke, who are supporting their Ashley produced, highly praised, and recently released LP: ‘Sunset / Sunrise.’¬† Greg will be opening the show, and playing drums for D&D. ¬† What other prolific analog cavemen¬†reminds us, “Do a full length album at my studio, only $1200” on his MySpace? This tour will be the now scene, and where it is happening.

HappyParts first heard Free Energy a few weeks back on Future Sounds radio show on WOXY.¬† Since then, I continue to see their name on blogs and playlists.¬† CMJ 09¬†looks to be theirs ¬†for the taking.¬† All this excitement sorts itself out over time.¬† The key factor is who moves beyond Blog Queen status. Free Energy has power pop curb appeal. The cow bell is the closer for¬†me.¬† They play Slim’s on November 1st.¬†
