Live music website JamBase has announced Cluster Flies, a cover album of the legendary Phish album Farmhouse, set for release on Friday, April 30th.
Performing artists on the album include William Tyler on the intro track “The Inlaw Josie Wales,” Club d’Elf on “Sand,” Ryley Walker on the monster 20 minute outro track “First Tube,” and many other talented artists.
I tasked the team to come up with an idea that we could rally around in place of live music and to raise lost revenues for JamBase. Rather than a standard fundraiser, the Cluster Flies project was conceived, and we soon reached out to an incredible group of musicians who graciously jumped at the opportunity to support JamBase.David Onigman, CEO
Each song on Cluster Flies will premiere through a daily rollout on JamBase and a corresponding episode of The JamBase Podcast that will also feature interviews with each of the participating artists. A select number of Cluster Flies songs will debut on SiriusXM’s Phish Radio on episodes of Crowd Control and Headbands.
The limited-edition 3LP album was mastered by engineer Joe Lambert and features custom artwork created by longtime Phish collaborator Jim Pollock. The Cluster Flies Pollock poster will be available to bundle with the triple gatefold, 180-gram vinyl edition. A standalone triple gatefold, 180-gram vinyl edition without the poster can also be purchased. A high-res digital version can be downloaded as well.
The album is available for pre-order at Clusterflies.com.
