Longtime Mother Hips and Green Leaf Rustlers guitar player and singer Greg Loiacono has released a new single and video titled “Seed.” The song was recorded at Coyote Hearing Studios in Oakland. Charles James Gonzalez engineered and mixed the song along with Loiacono. Anthony Puglisi mastered it. Patrick Spurgeon played drums and percussion, and Loiacono performed all of the other parts. Cover art by Chuck Harris, and video by Zach Rodell.
The song has a bit of a modern edge to it and offers introspective questions into our existence. Pretty raw musically, with cool slap back effects on the vocals. I really dig the video that accompanies it (below). it gives the whole thing a bit of a psychedelic garage rock feel. You can pre-save the song on Spotify, and it is available digitally worldwide on Dec. 11.
Greg’s thoughts on the song:
“We don’t have a choice about being born. But we are expected to live certain ways. Parents who create us, schoolteachers who mold us, societies in general rely on a person to live in particular ways that jive with cultural norms. And we just get thrown into it without a say and eventually become the ones who distribute the norms.”
