Local legend-slash-hero Joel Jerome—of unflagging dios (malos) fame and mastermind behind the Abbey Road West studio, which incubated a bunch of the good bands in L.A. right now—has a new full-length called Glassell Skyline and the new name Joel Wesley Harding. (Well played on both counts, Joel.) He’ll be giving away the album as he plays it in full at a show at McCabe’s in two weeks, and here’s a teaser track, designed like the rest of the record “to listen to while sitting in the tub thinking about old flames,” he says. “I Don’t Mind You” would be a natural fit next to the variously melancholic solo works of George, John and/or Paul—it’s a ballad that sounds best on a little L.A. balcony at twilight with a bottle of wine, and you should make some time to test that statement out. Joel Wesley Harding plays Sat., July 6, at McCabe’s with Paige Stark (of Tashaki Miyaki, interviwewed here) and Californiosos—get tickets here!
