Graham Parker's Don't Tell Columbus and Jon Rauhouse's Steel Guitar Heart Attack Now Available!

Graham Parker's eagerly-awaited new album Don't Tell Columbus is now available! Suffused with the heft of the epic, Don’t Tell Columbus’s lyrical and emotional resonance straddles the Atlantic and evinces GP’s stature as one of the most gifted writers in rock ‘n’ roll. Don't miss the album that Popmatters' Roger Holland hailed as "The best thing Graham Parker's done since his 1970s heyday" and Andy Whitman of Paste declared to be "a very early contender for Album of the Year."


Featuring guest appearances by Neko Case, Sally Timms, Kelly Hogan, Rachel Flotard of Visqueen and members of Calexico, Jon Rauhouse's Steel Guitar Heart Attack hits all the hotspots and g-spots between Harlingen and Honolulu, swinging, sighing, giggling and charming its way into even those with hearts of tar. Don McCleese of summed it up best, describing the album as ""Bob Wills meets Glenn Miller meets Esquivel’s space-age, bachelor-pad music" while Andy Whitman of Paste enthuses "Jon Rauhouse plays pedal steel guitar the way John Zorn plays the saxophone. That is, he thoroughly messes with your head as he takes you on a schizophrenic musical journey."
