Guster Announce New Album and Free Song Download
Recorded in New York and Nashville, 'Easy Wonderful' features twelve new original songs by the group - Ryan Miller (guitar/vocals), Adam Gardner (guitar/vocals), Brian Rosenworcel (percussion), and multi-instrumentalist Joe Pisapia. Their most sophisticated and rewarding work to date, 'Easy Wonderful' is an arresting pop gem, one that's subtle but insistent, layered and complex yet immediately and undeniably catchy.

'Easy Wonderful' exudes a kind of effortless appeal that belies the intensive and exacting labor behind it. Work commenced on the album in 2008, the same year three of the band's members became first-time fathers. After recording sessions in New York hit a wall, the band relocated to Pisapia's brand new Middletree Studios in Nashville. "Physically and emotionally Joe's studio was so different," remembers Gardner. "We'd been in this basement studio in New York City, cramped in this space with no windows that we jokingly called 'The Dungeon.' Joe's place is totally the opposite--, this stunning open-concept studio that has a great vibe...There was an immense feeling of freedom the moment we left New York and started recording in Nashville."
