If you’ve enjoyed Brad Russell’s stellar work with the likes of Gregg Allman, Joe Satriani and Rick Derringer (and dig the fact that he’s opened for John Lee Hooker), we’ve got some awesome news for you! The Detroit-born bass wizard has a follow-up to his 2012 debut, Let’s Hear It.

Released this March, Daily Shred, features Russell returning to the role of “lead” bassist on six instrumental tracks that take listeners on a far-reaching 20-minute odyssey. Accompanying him are drummers Gregg Bissonette, who’s played with David Lee Roth and Joe Satriani, and Jason Furman, who also teaches music  at Mount St. Mary College in New York.

Daily Shred covers a lot of sonic territory from rockers like “Waooww!” and “Shyboy,” to the deeper sludgier sounds of “Thick of It” and jazzier-sounding tracks like “King Edwards.” The CD also includes Russell’s take on the famous “existential” country pop tune “Wichita Lineman,” first popularized by Glen Campbell in the 1960s. (SEE VIDEO BELOW). The new EP is available now as a digital download.

Track Listing:

1. Waooww!

3. Shyboy
4. Wichita Lineman
5. King Edward
6. Spain
