Silo Sessions – Brian Wheat

It’s been quite a while since we’ve uploaded a Halfway House Session – so that’s why we’re stoked to share this exclusive premiere of our good friend Brian Wheat’s Silo Session. Buffalo native/Minneapolis based Wheat teams up with the hometown music video blog to record two tracks from his fourth album Way Down Below. We love the idea of recording in a silo as one of our favorite band’s debut album(Great Lakes Swimmers self-titled) utilized the same concept. Compound that with one of our favorite humans and we feel like it’s definitely a winner.

Brian Wheat offers ‘a unique blend of Canadiana and Southwest dark film score folk’ on his forthcoming album which features some kick ass horns from members of Calexico. WDB was recorded @ Stone House Recording – home of the Halfway House Sessions – by the über-talented Peter Fox. Mr Wheat’s ‘Shiner St’ is featured on Halfway House Music Podcast #010 – but – ‘@ last’ ‘you & I’ can listen to another track ‘way down below’.
