The Scavenger Cult EP Out Now!
Brett Netson’s captivating new EP The Scavenger Cult is available on 12″ vinyl now via New High Recordings and will be available on cassette in July 2016.

The Scavenger Cult EP features three glorious, sprawling anthems created with drummer Steve Gere (Uzala, Built To Spill), stereo bass contributions from Ian Waters (Kid Cordiroy, Boise Cover Band) and Josh Galloway (Cerberus Rex), with additional bass, synth contributions and all guitar and vocals courtesy of Netson.

RT N’ THE 44s are a Folk Noir Country band created by singer/songwriter RT Valine. Founded in 2009, the band originated in Los Angeles, CA . Using instruments crafted from tin, 2x4s and salvaged parts, RT has stated that RT N’ THE 44s was born out of “an attempt to make listenable music from junk”. They have been described as a “vintage country band with dark obsessions”. The band is often seen busking at various locations throughout Los Angeles – in the tradition of Woody Guthrie and Cisco Houston. As members of the New LA Folkfest, the band has performed with T-Model Ford, Tom Brosseau, John C. Reilly, and Red Simpson, among other notable acts. RT N’ THE 44s performs annually at The Roots Roadhouse Festival and Autry National Center. This is their debut full-length vinyl release on New High Recordings.read more
