Dayton music legend, Don Thrasher has a new and exciting project. And if you are expecting music that sounds like Guided by Voices or swings like Swearing at Motorists or has the crunch of Smug Brothers then this project is going to be quite a surprise. As Don himself has said “this is way different from what people know of me musically.”
“Lost Horizon” is the first single from “Land Baron of Barren Lands” the debut album from Mr. Thrasher’s newest project ‘Crossfade Rivals’. As you might expect Don created the beats, but he also did all of the programming, clips and samples on the song. Nathan Peters (Captain of Industry, Lioness) sings and plays piano on the song. Scott Bodine (Dayton guitar virtuoso) provides tonal guitar and synth comes courtesy of the production wizard Patrick Himes (Black Jacket Symphony, The Big Wazu, Bribing Senators), who also engineered and mixed the project at his Dayton Reel Love Recording Studio. The album is out on CD format for Local Music Day in November via Gas Daddy Go Records.
