Mike Marchant gives away unreleased music
Towering rocker and singer-songwriter Mike Marchant has a well-documented penchant for giving away music. When his band, Widowers, released its debut album, Marchant couldn't give away copies of the painstakingly recorded beauty fast enough. Little has changed since then, as evidenced by a recent e-mail the psych-pop tunesmith sent. The message contained links to download a handful of Widowers and Marchant solo tracks, as well as an exhortation to share liberally. One of those tracks is a concise little solo gem called "Mexico" that has yet to see an official release. Want it? Well, Marchant wants you to have it. Download "Mexico" for yourself, and make sure to catch the man himself at his next gig and thank him. Along with Dualistics, Jen Korte, John Common, Dan Craig, Angie Stevens, and members of Achille Lauro, Hello Kavita, the Still City, Ghost Buffalo and more, Marchant will be playing the hi-dive on April 3 as part of a show to commemorate the 15th anniversary of Kurt Cobain's death.
