New t-shirts are up in the "catalog" section. More human bodies with animal heads, courtesy of our pal John Foster. They're snazzy looking, and we figure it's about time you updated your t-shirt collection, you're looking pretty ragged!
In other news, there's a Fulton Lights slow jam that's featured in the astonishing Atlas edition of The Lifted Brow, an Australian "biannual attack journal". This volume is a book and 2cd's of writers, musicians, and visual artists reinterpreting the world in word, song, and image. Fulton Lights contributed "Old Testament Kind," a song of sibling rivalry, for the Israel and Palestine pieces of the puzzle. Karen Waltuch lent her viola genius to it, and you can stream/download it over at <a href="http://www.mbvmusic.com/2009/12/03/tlb6-ian-dingman-fulton-lights-rachel-haley-himmelheber/19178" target="_new">MBV</a>. But really you should just go over to <a href="http://www.theliftedbrow.com" target="_new">The Lifted Brow</a> and buy the whole darned thing, it's that good. Contributions from David Foster Wallace, Rick Moody and Hannah Marcus, Diamonds, Aidan Moffat, and many, many more.
That's all for now!

We're pleased to announce that the new Fulton Lights album comes out today. It's called The Way We Ride. Catbird Records is releasing the cd and allowing people to download the album directly from them on a pay-what-you-want model. And Android Eats Records will once again handle the digital via iTunes and eMusic and all that jazz.
The album can be streamed, downloaded, and purchased here: www.catbirdrecords.com/fultonlights.
Ryan from Catbird called the album "a new line in the sand, sonically, for Fulton Lights. There are some really intriguing juxtapositions going on with this record. It's like a team of robot scientists trying to piece together a Sergio Leone Western from dusty celluloid remnants, circa 2208 A.D."
The Who's Who of Fulton Lights, for the curious: Produced by Andrew Spencer Goldman. Alap "Oktopus" Momin (dalek) helped mix it. The Way We Ride had some Fulton Lights alums from the last record returning to contribute their skills: Still (x-dalek), Karen Waltuch (Foetus, Wilco), Rob Christiansen (East Ghost West Ghost), Steve Silverstein (Christmas Decorations), James Ilgenfritz III. Plus some recent initiates into the crew: Peter Hess (The Hold Steady, World Inferno Friendship Society), Kristin Mueller (Lucinda Black Bear), Jay Foote (Matt Bauer), Ravish Momin (Trio Tarana), and Gerald Menke (Super Furry Animals, Mercury Rev). Badasses, every last one.

Fulton Lights, fresh off the heels of a late December show at Pete's Candy Store that was as invigorating as a jaunt in the icy Hudson, has
been asked to hop on the bill this coming Thursday (1/24) @ Union Hall, in Brooklyn's Park Slope 'hood. The band is excited to have been asked, because: a)Fulton Lights are seasoned amateur bocce players (Boccists? Boccistes.) and will own the Union Hall bocce court; and b)This show will be with a band playing under the name "Impervious," but that isn't actually their name. Their name, well, I can't exactly tell you what it is, since that would defeat the purpose of their playing under the name "Impervious." But I can almost tell you that it rhymes with "Namby Pants Schmimited" and looks something like Am$u&@nce !td. Also playing will be The Redwalls, just dropping by the Big Apple to do a gig on Letterman.
Should be a good one. $8, Fulton Lights on at 10:30.
The second Fulton Lights record is almost done tracking. Bangin', that'd be the word. Mixing in a month or two. Stay tuned!
