Dare Dukes just released his full length entitled Thugs and China Dolls on Athens label Mazarine Records and is now going on tour for its support. He played not just one, but two CD release shows in Savannah, Georgia this past weekend. Dare played “Artifacts,” the b-side to his Ghosts of Christmas Single released on Furious Hooves and his own Starland Records, but decided to mix it up for this live version. Rachael Perisho of mumbledust was a special guest on vocals one night and here you can listen to a partial iPhone recording of Thursday’s show at the Bean. “Dare was nice enough to let me sing on this one,” says Rachael.
Furious Hooves and Starland Records have teamed up to release this 2-song single Ghosts of Christmas from Savannah orchestral folklord, Dare Dukes. Set for release 29 November 2011, Dare has connected with a spectacular group of musicians including JoJo Glidewell (Modern Skirts) and Suny Lyons (pacificUV, Hope for Agoldensummer, Phosphorescent) whom have also helped out with the full length Thugs and China Dolls coming out 17 January 2012. What does Dare Dukes have to say on the matter of releasing a Christmas Single?
Yes, that’s right, me, valiant and cranky resister of the Hallmark Industrial Complex: I wrote a Christmas song. It’s bouncy, it’s cute, and yep, it’s a little dark. If you like banjos and doleful synthesizers you’re going to find yourself weeping into your egg nog.
