If you happened to be walking around Williamsburg in the late September weekend, taking in the unseasonably warm weather or grabbing a bite to eat, things would have seemed like any other weekend. Maybe you noticed the matching wristbands of the people walking back and forth along Wythe Avenue, or you saw the groups of people hanging around smoking cigarettes outside a few music venues from early afternoon until late into the night, but nothing that struck you as particularly noteworthy.

Old Shoe is excited to announce that the long awaited follow up to the band’s 2013 release, Family, is finally here. Country Home features 13 all-original tracks. In a search to find their own Country Home, the album was written over the course of the last couple years with a good portion of the tunes being written in Oneida County, WI at a country home. The album was recorded at the same studio as their earlier release Family, I.V. Labs Studio in Chicago and is engineered, mixed, and co-produced by Chris Harden.
Two years ago Steve Kimock spent a winter’s retreat in a barn with lots of acoustic guitars and an engineer making Last Danger of Frost. To present this new music on tour, he created KIMOCK, with his son John Morgan Kimock on drums, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Leslie Mendelson, and old mate Bobby Vega on bass. In the process they found themselves inspired to write lots more songs, which gives us Satellite City, which will be released October 27th.
