Seattle-based singer/songwriter/guitar player, Porter Harp, assembled an all-star line up of his criminally talented musician pals for this remarkable 'solo' debut; friends he's collaborated with in various bands and projects for the last 10 years, including: Jim Roth (the Delusions, Built to Spill), Tim Fekete (the Delusions), Jeff Baars (Mike Johnson's live band), Anne Marie Ruljancich (Jesse Sykes & the Sweet Hereafter, the Walkabouts), and Dave Keppel (the Delusions, Lazy). The resulting magic of this unique synthesis transports the listener through a psychedelic weave of atmospheric, Americana-inspired space rock warmly wrapped in the hazy cloud of a late night, whiskey-mellowed, Crazy Horse-style jam session..."Drinking Season" was produced and engineered by the infamous Phil Ek (Built to Spill, Modest Mouse) along with Porter Harp and Jim Roth. Together they managed to create a sound that appeals to the over 30 crowd weaned on 70's rock, that the can kids dig too. Think Wilco meets Neil Young at a Pink Floyd recording session with the benefit of a modern perspective and lots o' vintage gear, yet somehow transported back to the fall of 1978, and you'll begin to get the idea.
