Popdose is very pleased and proud to premiere exclusively “Snakes In The Seaweed”, the newest track from the upcoming album by Django Haskins, Shadowlawn.  The venerable North Carolina-based singer/songwriter/guitarist is unveiling his first solo album in 17 years!  Mr. Haskins, as many of you are aware, fronts the acclaimed The Old Ceremony and shares the spotlight in Au Pair with The Jayhawks’ Gary Louris; he’s also been a member of the touring company for the Big Star 3rd performances.

Shadowlawn began as a series of experimental recordings in his newly built studio, and eventually evolved into a kind of late-summer song cycle full of meditations on death, love, fear, wanderlust, and exploration of interior worlds.  “Snakes In The Seaweed” features backing vocals from another Popdose favorite, Skylar Gudasz and is a bit more “rock” than the rest of the album (which gives the overall feel of the album a very nice balance).

If you haven’t been introduced to the very fine work of Mr. Haskins before, it’s about time.  Sit back and enjoy “Snakes In The Seaweed” – and let your appetites be whetted for Shadowlawn.

Shadowlawn will be released on Thursday, August 2nd, 2018.
