Ivy's Andy Chase will release a new Brookville album, Life In The Shade, on June 13 through his own Unfiltered Records. The new album is Chase's second release under the Brookville moniker and while the point of the band is to give Chase complete freedom as a solo artist, Life In The Shade is a vastly collaborative effort. Recorded in New York at Stratosphere Sound, which Chase co-owns with Ivy partner Adam Schlesinger and James Iha, it seemed only fitting that those two fine musicians would contribute to the project. In addition, Paris-based sound editor Cyril Moisson, Fountains Of Wayne guitarist Jody Porter, Didi Gutman and Sabina Sciubba of Brazilian Girls and Greg Pliska of Hem, all made contributions as well.
I've yet to hear any music so that's pretty much all I have for you at the moment. Oh, except that there is expected to be a tour later this year, but nothing is set in stone. I'll keep ya posted.
