A new Green Pajamas album, SUPERNATURAL AFTERNOON, will be out soon on UK based, Sugarbush Records.  The album, a compilation of recent recordings and digital singles, will be released as a 12" LP on purple vinyl.  The album will not be released in CD format.  The record was produced by Jeff Kelly and features a cover drawing, Zitkala-Sa, by his wife, Susanne.  

All but one of the songs, "Ancient Lake" by Eric Lichter, are written by Jeff.  Here's the list...

Side A:

January Girl

Big Black Storm (Single version)

Who Is The Girl (Version 2)

Supernatural Afternoon

The Jailer's Song

Side B:

Kill The Power

Red Bird (Single version)

Ancient Lake

The Red, Red Rose

Raise Ravens

"The Red, Red Rose" and "Raise Ravens" are remastered tracks from the previous RED, RED ROSE CD EP on Green Monkey Records.  None of the other songs have ever been available in a physical format.   The word from Sugarbush is that this might be their best sounding Pajamas issue yet and the other three vinyl LPs, DEATH BY MISADVENTURE, IF YOU KNEW WHAT I DREAMED and TO THE END OF THE SEA, are all remarkably good pressings.

The Green Pajamas will once again open an evening with MKB Ultra on March 11th.  Jeff Kelly is a big fan of the band and the PJs are very happy to play this special show with them along with the legendary, Sage, at The Royal Room in Seattle's Columbia City.  

This will be the last Green Pajamas live date for a spell so please come early as they will go on first, at 9:00 PM!  

Advance tickets - $8.00 ($10.00 night of show) - are available here: http://www.strangertickets.com/events/41242322/mkb-ultra-w-sage-and-green-pajamas

 

Surprise Video Release!

The surprise, new Green Pajamas video, "Kill The Power," begins ugly and angry but ends very upbeat: It re-enforces the idea of "killing" the current fascist leaning U.S. government, by way of persistent and peaceful protest.

The digital single is out next week on Green Monkey Records.

You can see the video on YouTube or on our website right HERE.

New Video: When Juliet Smiles

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The latest music video for TO THE END OF THE SEA is out now on YouTube.  Carrie Von Kiel portrays Juliet in "When Juliet Smiles" which also features Jeff as the lighthouse keeper. Laura joins Jeff performing the song in the video, directed and filmed by Susanne Kelly.  While editing, Jeff added the title - A Short Film About Loving - just a fun nod to one of his favorite directors, Krzysztof Kieslowski, and his, "A Short Film About Killing."  You can view "When Juliet Smiles" right HERE

"If To The End of the Sea seems like an echo of another age, it’s also a welcome return to a time when adventure and experimentation went well beyond the mindless gimmickry and superfluous trappings found in today’s more pretentious pop. This is ambition of another kind, the supple effect of a more mesmerizing kind of music." [Read More...]

From the Green Monkey Records website...


The weather begins to turn. The leaves begin to drop. I think the fall is upon us. And what is a better fall joy than an all-new Green Pajamas album, eighteen snippets of pleasure.

To that end, we are thrilled to present To The End Of The Sea, The Green Pajamas’ first new studio album (buy it here) since


2012’s Death By Misadventure. We are releasing the album (the PJs thirty-third) on CD and download. The album will also be released in a 300-copy limited vinyl edition with Sugarbush Records of England (date TBA). As is usually the case, we have 50 numbered and autographed CD copies available direct from Green Monkey – first come first serve!

For this album, head-Pajama Jeff Kelly went to his roots, re-embracing his love of 1960’s pop. It takes much more of an organic approach to the recording process than his work of recent years. Jeff wanted to reach back to Pajamas albums like Strung Behind The Sun and All Clues Lead To Meagan’s Bed and go with that sort of aesthetic again: sound effects, backwards guitars, lots of vocal harmonies, violin and cello.

To The End Of The Sea tells the story of a lighthouse keeper, the mysterious woman he finds on his beach after a storm one night and what happens from there. Who is Juliet? Fallen from a star, a mermaid or maybe just a mysterious woman? It’s a sort of a sci-fi romance micro-rock opera, seasoned with a pinch of the gothic (the cover shot comes from the Hubble telescope via NASA). Most of the 18 songs are short and sweet, tied into two long medleys. Many were in fact recorded in that fashion, with one song running right into the next and then on to the next song.


I have been making records with Jeff for a long time. This is one of his best.


The first video from the album is “Ten Million Light Years Away” with two more in the works; there are plans for a ridiculous 7:00AM ocean shoot at Grayland in the works.
