Our 2013 alumni, Tea Leaf Green, have been “leaking” the tracks from their new album one by one. As Trevor Garrod shared in our conversation, the band has not shied away from making massive changes in their sound or lineup, and this roller coaster keeps the ride interesting.
Unfortunately, you cannot listen to this SoundCloud file that the band themselves made public and sent along to me, requesting specifically that I post this SoundCloud track, because SESAC thinks it violates music use rights. Since SESAC has a lot more money than I do, I cannot afford to contest this with them. It appears to me, a normal, non-attorney, that SESAC is double-dipping, as SoundCloud covers the licensing and the rights holder either enables or disables the embed code, thereby granting or not granting the rights to post the SoundCloud embed file.
Reed Mathis’ newly penned July release, “Nature Made You Music” is produced by Jeremy Black. Special guest drummer Andrew Barr (The Barr Brothers, The Slip) and Dan Lebowitz (ALO) on pedal steel.
