Ladies and gentleman, welcome to Gayngs week. Surely, by now, you've heard about the 24-person collaboration that is Gayngs, which comprises producer Ryan Olson with members of Bon Iver, Solid Gold, P.O.S, Lookbook, Megafaun, the Rosebuds, Leisure Birds, and many more. As the mega-collaboration prepares for its debut and what will likely be its only performance as a complete group this Friday at First Avenue, we've got a few tricks up our sleeves to get you ready for the Gayngs action.
First, a gift from us to you: We're proud to present an exclusive stream of the final track on Relayted (and our favorite track on the album), "The Last Prom on Earth," which is also the theme of Friday's pair of release shows in the Mainroom.
Gayngs, "The Last Prom on Earth"
Why yes, that is Ivan Howard from the Rosebuds doing his best Bowie-meets-Bone Thugs vocals, and Justin Vernon of Bon Iver adding in some sweet counterpart falsetto Auto-Tune raps. Amazing!
Stay tuned throughout the week as we keep the Gayngs train rolling, with a ticket giveaway tomorrow and an interview with Gayngs members in the paper on Wednesday.
