A New ‘Birthday’ from VM

Violent Mae has a little surprise in store for us this holiday season. They’ve just released an alternate take of ‘Kid’ standout track Birthday featuring Chris Ballew (of the Presidents of the United States of America) playing the distinct two-string bass that belonged to the late, great Mark Sandman of Morphine, a major influence on the band’s sound.  The track was recorded at Q Division Studios in Boston, MA for a Converse Rubber Tracks session. Becky & Floyd then asked Ballew in to lay down some tracks. Check out the results:
