We just featured The Goodbye Party today in our Artists of the Week but thought an extra push today was well deserved. The project of Philadelphia-based musician Michael Cantor, has also shared a video for “December Boys,” the new single from his upcoming album Beautiful Motors.
Of the song, Cantor says “When my partner and I started dating, she was writing a graphic novel that documented her first year in Philly. Naturally, she captured the beginning of our relationship in the book. The lyrics are a short collection of some of those pages. The song itself came together in about 20 minutes, but took another 7 years to make it onto an album.“
Recorded with Kyle Gilbride of Swearin‘ at Wherever Audio, Beautiful Motors features a slew of notable Philadelphia musicians including Gilbride, Sam Cook-Parrott (Radiator Hospital), Maryn Jones (Yowler), Joey Doubek (Pinkwash, Speedy Ortiz), Emi Knight (Strawberry Runners), and pedal steel guitarist Zena Kay.
Beautiful Motors is available for pre-order now and due October 9th via Double Double Whammy.
