Singer/songwriter Mike Doughty has announced The Lo-Fi Lodge, a subscription program that will offer fans a weekly download of unreleased recordings dating back to the beginning of his solo career. The trove of outtakes, demos, alternate versions and more comprises 32 tracks; fans who subscribe for a $20 one-time fee before the April 27 deadline will get one new track per week for 32 weeks.
The Lo-Fi Lodge will feature acoustic demo versions of songs from Doughty's albums Golden Delicious (2008) and Yes and Also Yes (2011), digital eight-track demos of songs from Haughty Melodic (2005), previously unavailable songs Doughty wrote and recorded for the soundtrack of the independent film Evenhand (2002), songs that ended up on Haughty Melodic and Golden Delicious that began with other producers before Doughty decided to go a different direction, and more. Some of the tracks have never been heard before in any form, and others represent the germ of a song that was radically altered by the time it was released on an album. All in all, it represents an unusual look inside Doughty's creative process, allowing fans to glimpse the formative stages of his unique work.
Fans can sign up for The Lo-Fi Lodge here.
Mike Doughty is currently in the midst of an extensive US tour supporting his memoir, The Book of Drugs (released Feb. 1); his two-disc live album, The Question Jar Show (released Jan. 31); and his latest studio album, Yes and Also Yes (released last summer). Doughty is playing songs solo, reading from the memoir and answering questions from the audience at each show; dates continue through late May. The April 21 show of Doughty's monthly City Winery residency in New York has sold out, and a May 25 date has been added at the venue.
