Listen To ‘Overstep’ In Its Entirety At RollingStone.com
Can’t wait for next week’s release date of Mike Gordon’s new album ‘Overstep’ ? Now you don’t have to. Rolling Stone.com is streaming the ENTIRE album now; a week before it’s release. If you haven’t already pre-ordered, you can do so at http://bit.ly/mg_overstep.
On February 25, 2014, Megaplum/ATO Records will release Mike Gordon’s new studio solo album, Overstep. It is available for pre-order now at Mike’s Store and Phish Dry Goods on both CD and a 2-LP blue vinyl set. Overstep is Mike’s fourth solo studio album, following Moss, The Green Sparrow, and Inside In.
The songs on Overstep also speak to Gordon’s evolving ability to develop three- dimensional characters, and to speak more directly to the truth of their condition. He hasn’t lost his appetite for metaphor, and he still leaves plenty of room for interpretation, but listeners may find themselves recognizing the human portraits in songs like “Say Something” and “Paint” in a way they haven’t in Gordon’s previous albums. Still, happily, Gordon embraces absurdity as he always has – conceptually, lyrically, and musically.
