PREVIEW of the track "Rare & Double Clutch" from ATTIC HARVEST 

Since we were all kids, music has been at the center of our respective worlds. So many great albums have seeped into our imaginations, spurring us on to make our own music. For the past 10+ years as Smug Brothers, we have shared the experience of making and presenting new music. For us, it's a great thrill to finish an album, sit down to listen, and GO THERE. 

We have been working on our new album ATTIC HARVEST since spring 2017. We are thrilled it was recorded and mixed entirely by the band on 4-track cassette and at our new digital workspace, The Holler. With the departure of Brian Baker and Larry Evans as recording members of the group, we enlisted the talents of Scott Tribble on guitar/keyboard to help round out the new material. While the names have changed, the songs remain the same. Building on more than a decade of experience writing and recording together, Kyle Melton and Don Thrasher continue to provide the foundation for the Smug Brothers sound. 

So, this is where YOU come in!

We are hoping to raise funds to finance the mastering and pressing components of making a Smug Brothers release on vinyl a reality. The plan is to schedule mastering services with Carl Saff  and press a limited edition of 300 on black vinyl with an insert featuring lyrics and collage artwork through Gotta Groove Records. HOWEVER, If we fall significantly short of our goal at the end of 30 days, we will press the album to CD so as not to further delay its release.  


Every contribution helps! Here's what you'll receive for your contribution:

$10 - Digital Download
Digital download & art of ATTIC HARVEST

$20 - Vinyl of ATTIC HARVEST
Vinyl copy of ATTIC HARVEST [with digital download]

$30 - Vinyl + merch item TBD
Vinyl copy of ATTIC HARVEST [w/digital download] and one merch item that we will determine as soon as possible.

$50 - Vinyl + merch + custom song
At the tier, you'll get a vinyl copy of ATTIC HARVEST [w/digital download], a merch item TBD, and we will write/record a song for you. We will give you a list of titles to choose from, you pick the one you like, and we'll write and record a song for you!

Good morning!

Just wanted to let all of you know the album has been sent out to Gotta Groove Records in Cleveland to be pressed to vinyl. The album artwork [done by our good friend Joe Patterson] looks great and we think you'll all really dig the layout. We have been given an early January press date from GGR, so we'll keep you posted on when we get the records and are able to ship them out to all of you.

Additionally, our friend Marshall Norman is working on a design for the T-shirts we will be sending out to those of you that donated at those tiers. Given it's our first T-shirt since 2012, we're pretty excited. For those of you that donated at the $50+ levels, we will be in touch this week about your custom song, so please keep an eye out for that.

Thanks again to all of you for making this project happen!
