LEXINGTON, Ky. — Fayetteville, Arkansas,’ and adopted Kentuckians Vintage Pistol have unveiled new song “Play It Like They Used To” off their upcoming EP Trial & Error, out March 1, 2019.
Trial & Error was recorded at Sound Source Studio, a full-service recording studio located in the serene woodlands of the Ozark Mountains just outside of Fayetteville, Arkansas. Bryan Burkhart of Fayetteville-based funk/rock band Groovement produced the album along with Vintage Pistol’s 2016 EP The Second Amendment.
Comprised of Taylor Smith on guitar/vocals, Walt Blythe on lead guitar, Garrett August on piano/harmonica/vocals, Jonny “Marinara” Morden on bass and Jake Schaffer on drums, Vintage Pistol pack an explosive punch in their live performances, which they captured magnificently in the studio on “Play it Like They Used To.” The song’s, and the band’s general vibe is that of old-school, or vintage, psych and jam rock, branching off of bands such as Widespread Panic, The Allman Brothers Band, The Talking Heads and The Marcus King Band, among others.
Listen to “Play It Like They Used To” below and catch Vintage Pistol during a two-night run in Lexington at The Burl on Nov. 28 and 29 — first with Driftwood Gypsy and The Baja Yetis and again with Angela Perley & The Howlin’ Moons and Of the Dell.
