Thank you so much to Clicky Clicky for debuting Lip from the new record and saying such sweet things! Click...y this link to listen to Lip and read more.   :')

"The sum total feints in the direction of Built to Spill's acclaimed Perfect From Now On or some deliciously hypothetical iteration of Neil Young And Crazy Horse, but the reality is "Lip" resides in a universe of The Rutabega's own creation."

ps: here is a picture of Dudley (of The Dudley Digest) with his copy of Unreliable Narrator! Not too late to pre-order your own copy from Comedy Minus One...

We are ridiculously excited to let yous know that our new record, "Unreliable Narrator", will be released on the Comedy Minus One record label! Click HERE to read CMO's announcement, pre-order the LP, and stream a brand new song.

All advance orders include a digital collection of solo acoustic living room demos titled "Unreliable Sketches".

The album is housed in a tip-on Stoughton sleeve with gorgeous full-color Jay Ryan cover art, with the first 250 copies pressed on clear vinyl with streaks of black "smoke".

Thank you.
