“Greg Ashley’s 4th album under his own name, his first since 2009’s Requiem Mass (Birdman), signals yet another change in direction for this multi-instrumentalist/producer/ arranger/singer/songwriter/bandleader. Death of a Ladies’ Man is a reverential song-for-song treatment of Leonard Cohen’s least “reverential” album: the 1977 Phil Spector-produced album of the same name.”

California Clap Records has released the debut self-titled solo album from Anna Hillburg (of San Francisco’s power-pop darlings, Dreamdate), available, HERE and its bandcamp. “ANNA HILBURG” was recorded by Greg Ashley (Gris Gris) at the Creamery Studios in Oakland, California, and features guest appearances by Logan Kroeber (The Dodos), Joe Haener (Gris Gris), and Greg Moore (The Moore Brothers, Joanna Newsom).

“A classically trained trumpet player, Anna has spent the last decade in the Bay Area garage rock scene as a songwriter, singer, drummer, and bass player. Her songs have been covered by the likes of Mates of State, and her trumpet playing has been featured on the albums of local artists such as The Dodos (Time to Die 2009), Greg Ashley (Requiem Mass & Other Experiments 2010), and the Fresh & Onlys.” — California Clap Records
