Eleven Twenty-Nine – White Horse Blues (Digital Only)

This track (digital only) is taken from Tom Carter and Marc Orleans‘ self titled release “Eleven Twenty-Nine,” dedicated to the late Jack Rose, due out on June 14th, 2011 via Northern Spy Records (LP, CD, MP3 & FLAC).  The album was engineered and recorded by Jason Meagher at Black Dirt Studios and mastered by Paul Gold at Salt Mastering.


Tom, a latter day Carter Family member via Texas’ Charalambides, has explored a psychedelic-brand of guitar instrumentals. Between his band and solo work, he has released some 50 albums, all garnering high praise. While Marc, a slick-fingered guitar-slinger, has imprinted on legions of fans the sounds of Helix, Juneau and the Sunburned Hand of Man. Together they deliver an album steeped in the soul and depth of blues while moving forward into an enigmatic free-improv rock.
