“GHOST”, Mike Killeen’s Latest Album, Launches on Saturn 5 Records

Saturn 5 Records proudly announces the release of “GHOST”! This is Georgia songwriter Mike Killeen’s fifth album. Killeen’s strong lyrics and producer Ken Coomer’s intelligent drumming makes this album ring with Americana sensibilities. The album explores topics of lost loves while celebrating current ones. Having drummed for indie rock bands Wilco and Uncle Tupelo, Coomer adds urgency and longing to the percussive elements. Recorded in Nashville, the CD and vinyl album are available for sale here and at Mike Killeen’s website.

Killeen has always had a way with words, crafting them to subtly tease out the flavor in each lyric like a brewmaster making a great microbrew. His straightforward melodies softly stroke the lyrics without dominating them. The album features nine songs that range from the glass rattling rock of “Total Nonsense and Drunk” to the tear inducing, heartfelt “Decatur Cemetery.”

The album and its namesake Bronson are touted by reviewers as having a “Dylan-like edge that the master himself might even have considered” (countrystandardtime.com), “one of the best releases this year” (glidemagazine.com), “Bronson may just be one of the finest singer/songwriter artists since Bob Dylan” (criticaljazz.com). Besides being voted in the Top Five Albums of 2014 by the EuroAmericana Charts, the album has been rated the #1 album of the year by ctlaltcountry.com and made Blurt’s Lee Zimmerman’s Top Ten of 2014, among many other rankings and reviews.

The album was tracked entirely analog in Nashville by acclaimed producer Dave Cobb (Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell, Anderson East). “The whole project, produced by Americana superstar recordist Dave Cobb is wonderful” (musiccittyroots.com). Eliot Bronson is a vibey, ten-song album with an uncluttered production aesthetic that highlights Bronson’s songwriting and his achingly beautiful vocals. “It’s an album that trades on both the simplicity of its nine-song the live approach Bronson and (Dave) Cobb took to recording” (bluegrass situation.com).

“It was quite a pleasure working with Eliot,” says Cobb. “He’s a brilliant lyricist and poet. We did the record live all together and the album feels timeless.”
