June IND marks ten years since Chemcoma’s farewell show, releases “Come to Hand” featuring Justice Fuller

Ten years ago, our pre-June IND band Chemcoma rang out its last note at the Mosey Down Main Street in Downtown Lafayette, Indiana. No one has heard us play any of those songs since… until today.

With the blessing of our old pal Cody, we re-recorded an unplugged version of the Chemcoma fave, “Come to Hand” featuring our friend Justice Fuller on violin and vocals.

Check it out:

If you’re still with us down here… we’re also using the “Come to Hand” recording experience as a dry run for pumping out more new music during this pandemic mess. There are still seven unreleased First Annual Meeting of Optimists tracks that we need to put inside your ears. Stay tuned.

P.S. We offered to plug Cody’s cool, new band, but he didn’t think it was necessary. Anyway, if you want to look them up, it rhymes with Fight Likes In. 😘😘

 

Today’s Memory Stash: Dan Precision mixes June IND’s “My Rx”

June-IND-MyRx-mix-session-Dan-Precision

Mix session from June IND’s song “My Rx” by Dan Precision at The Bombshelter Recording Studio in Chicago

On this day, June 30, 2015, Dan Precision was mixing “My Rx,” a brooding, grinding rock song (à la Alice in Chains and Chevelle) that serves as the lead-off track to June IND’s #HillsterHipbilly EP.

Appropriately referred to as a “three-year-minefield,” the Hipbilly effort invokes memories of personal and professional strife among the group along with strong feelings of accomplishment regarding the EP’s eventual completion and release.

Pandemic thwarts recording plans, June IND releases new music instead

Well, that escalated quickly. Remember this (June IND to return to The Bombshelter in March to record new music)? We’re supposed to be at the Bombshelter Recording Studio recording with Dan Precision right now…

Timeline update:

  • Three weeks ago, we were still working on pre-production for the Vol. 3 tunes, planning how much food and bourbon to take to Chicago, etc.
  • Two weeks ago, we decided to pump the brakes and hunker down.
  • Last week we decided to release all of our Vol. 2 goodies.
  • This week (like, now), that happens.

Stay safe, everyone. Sending the best of vibes to you, the folks out of work and the folks still out working. If it helps, here’s some boogie:

Like Vol. 1, we collaborated with our artist friends Brandon Ahnert and Stacy Bogan to create new art and videos for the Vol. 2 tunes. The First Annual Meeting of Optimists Video Playlist has been updated HERE or you can check out the new videos below.
