Duchampion Presents “Born in the USA”

Not sure how to celebrate the fourth?  Ben Seretan has the answer: Duchampion’s cover of “Born in the USA.”  Did you really think we were going to let you listen to that video for the nation’s birthday? Nope.  Here’s the text from the video’s Vimeo page:

Here is our cover of Born in the USA, recorded live in the Spaceman Sound studios during the “Purple Clouds” session.

If you would like a FREE copy of this song, please email duchampiontheband@gmail.com with “USA” in the subject line. Happy 4th.

Video shot by Dan Sullivan and Ben Seretan. Featuring Times Square in NYC and Ocean Shores, WA.We did not write this song. It is written and made famous by Bruce Springsteen, who we all have the utmost respect for. Also – RIP Big Man.

Happy Independence Day, from Wesleying and Duchampion.

Yeoman’s Omen Records First Two Demos

If you haven’t heard Yeoman’s Omen yet, you’re probably not paying attention: the folk-rock/power-pop/whatever quartet is possibly the busiest band in the class of ’14 (Grandfather puts up a fight), and unarguably the most fun. Considering their frosh performance at Battle of the Bands (image above), they may even have a future performing on Foss Hill (and other, equally classy all-ages venues).

Seriously: these guys play the sort of great, loud, sloppy, heartfelt sets sometimes missing from the Wezleyin Moozic Sceane. And they haven’t recorded, until now. Noah Rush ’14 writes in:

Yeoman’s Omen is happy to share with you our first two demos, “Signs” and “Shark-Infested Waters.” The band consists of Gabe Greenberg ’14, Noah Rush ’14, Julian Gal ’14, and Nate Repasz ’14. These recordings were produced in the Usdan basement and a Butt A dormroom thanks to fantastic work by Daniel Sullivan ’13 and feature Julius Bjornson ’14 on the fiddle and Tess Keller ’14 on the voice pipes. Here they are.
