Several months ago, when I took a quick look into Headeye’s ongoing project, I described it as Yes meets Frank Zappa and Warren Zevon. That much has not changed. I introduced the first few couple singles (and the “B” sides) from the CD – “Earth Girls”. “Facebook Booty Call” and “Ja Aber Nein” gave you a pretty good preview of what was to come. Well, the full CD is here now. It has actually been out for a couple months and, shame on me for not getting this out sooner.
“Earth Girls” is a full-length, 13-song album with a wide range of very interesting and entertaining music that steps well outside the main stream. If you haven’t taken the time to listen yet, there’s no better time than the present. The album features different mixes and a little different flow on the aforementioned singles and is a real treat if you’re looking for something new and different to listen to. Put on the headphones or pop in the ear buds and crank it up nice and loud, then kick back and enjoy.
So, what’s next ? A vinyl package is tentatively scheduled for release some time in June with a target date of Record Store Day. The package is available for pre-order now at http://www.headeye.org. There’s lots of goodies to go along the vinyl like stickers, posters and a USB stick full of bonus cuts from the project. If you order the full package now, you’ll get it all – vinyl, CD, USB stick and digital download. You will have every version of every song – and then some. Also on the horizon is a series of live performances in conjunction with Touchstone Theater. Next Saturday, June 19, They will be doing a special “test run” event in front of family, friends and invited guests. There will then be two live performances planned of August and October that will be open to the public. Stay tuned for dates. And, while they are hard at work on the next album, the final chapter in this story has not yet been written. There’s more to come and we’ll talk about that in the next chapter. In the meantime, get to the website, listen to this amazing production, pre-order the full package and get more of the story (so far).
If you want to get to know the man behind the project, Jason Hedrington, you can tune in to one (or all) of his weekly shows on Facebook and Intagram. Saturday Night Shenanigans airs weekly at 9pm and Afternoon Delight is every Tuesday and Wednesday at 1:11pm.
