Will you be let into the Gayngs?

Any guesses on how to pronounce this one? Gayngs? Anyway, Gayngs is the newest member of the Jagjaguwar family, and will release Relayted on May 11 (17th in UK - yes i think i have it wrong in the release dates page).

I'm gonna shorten up how this one came about, as Gayngs is another of those gang records, where everybody but you and me were invited to help out.

Start with Ryan Olson, producer, add in Adam Coulter and Zach Hurlburt of Solid Gold and you've got your core idea. Let 25 other musicians into the mix including: North Carolina's Megafaun (Joe Westerlund, Brad Cook, Phil Cook), and with them came Ivan Howard (The Rosebuds), and Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon and Mike Noyce, Rhymesayers rapper P.O.S and his fellow Doomtree artist Dessa, psych-rockers Jake Luck and Nick Ryan (Leisure Birds), song-birds Channy Moon-Casselle and Katy Morley, jazz-saxophonist Michael Lewis (Happy Apple, Andrew Bird), retro-pop duo Maggie Morrison and Grant Cutler (Lookbook), and slide-guitarist Shön Troth (Solid Gold) and you've got one interesting new album.

In the end, it took over a year to track and mix Relayted, but in about 3 months, you'll finally get to know Gayngs.
