Jeff Fiedler Releases Third EP in Four Months

ghv2Coming hot on the heels of October’s surprisingly playful I’ll Believe It When I See It, and December’s relaxed Live on Air, Jeff Fiedler is issuing perhaps the most anticipated EP is his recent release campaign. Entitled Greatest Hits Volume II, this one is particularly special, as Fiedler announced the project an astounding nine years ago!

Containing three of Fiedler’s most well-known compositions (“Windsor Diaries,” “The Last Thing On My Mind,” and “Wrong”), GHv2 was produced by our very own Brian E, and features the late Tim Ryan, our former keyboardist, on lead single, “Last Thing On My Mind.”

The album drops on Tuesday January 13, 2015 via Fiedler’s Bandcamp page. Here’s the tracklisting:

1. Windsor Diaries
2. Wrong
3. The Trouble With Love Is…
4. The Last Thing On My Mind (feat. Tim Ryan)
5. Pretty Little Head

Announcing: The Great Albums Podcast

Brian and our founding guitarist Bill Lambusta (who served in the band from 2008 – 2011) have launched a new podcast called, ‘The Great Albums.’ Having grown up in the 1990s – really the period where the full-length album had its last stand – the pair wax poetic on some of their favorite LP’s (Boys & Girls in America) as well as a number of accepted classics (Murmur, Dookie).

Episode One is posted and ready to roll. What album do they discuss? Click the link and find out!
