The Transmissionary Six are songwriter, singer, drummer and keyboardist Terri Moeller Pearson (aka Terri Tarantula), songwriter and guitarist Paul Austin, and multi-instrumentalist & recordist Jon Hyde. Joining the group for their new album Often Sometimes Rarely Never are friends Carolyn Wennblom (Girl Singer) on backing vocals, Michael 'Mike Bass' Wells (The Walkabouts, Glimmer), Matthew Brown on guitars, sounds and mixing, Jeff Lipton on mastering, and former TM6 drummer & percussionist Ben Thompson on album design.
The nucleus of The Transmissionary Six formed in the early oughts when Terri and Paul met while on tour with their respective bands The Walkabouts (a band that Paul would eventually join) and Boston's Willard Grant Conspiracy. An enduring musical partnership was formed that has yielded numerous albums and lasted to this day.
With the imminent release of Often Sometimes Rarely Never, the first Transmissionary Six album in nearly ten years, the band has achieved newfound lyrical depth and musical breadth, especially evident in the ambient space the ensemble has created in these nine songs, each hook and melody responding to singer Terri Moeller Pearson's lyrical turns of phrase; the musicians listening and reacting to each other in ways that only longtime collaborators can. The music contained herein, recorded in a handful of studios throughout 2022 and partially released as digital singles, stretches in different directions while holding together as a cohesive set; a collection of songs that should be listened to from beginning to end, like all great albums.
A highlight of the set is the song Strobe Light Nights, co-penned with the band and sung by close friend and former Walkabouts bandmate Chris Eckman.
We at Drums & Wires can't wait to share this beautiful album with you. Get the CD, dust off your headphones, relax in your most comfortable chair, and prepare yourself for a musical journey that's sure to bring you back for repeated spins, hearing subtle new sounds and lyrical meaning with each listen.
