"This Is How It Goes" is a Record Store Day 2012 exclusive 7-inch by Marco Benevento, available at independent record stores across the country this Saturday, April 21. The song from the revered pianist is the first to ever feature vocals. Taking the honors is Kalmia Traver from the exploding indie-dance band Rubblebucket.
Recorded by Tom Biller (Silversun Pickups, Elliot Smith, Fiona Apple) and mixed by Bryce Goggin (Pavement, Antony & The Johnsons, Akron/Family), "This Is How It Goes" is a pastoral psych rock meditation that offers a glimpse into Benevento's new studio album coming September 2012.
Marco Benevento will be touring extensively this summer, including festival appearances at Mountain Jam, High Sierra Music Festival, Telluride Jazz Festival, Floydfest, Iowa City Jazz Festival and Strange Creek.
