number one gun diy

number one gun's new cd, the north pole project is out in stores today. for those of you who are fans of number one gun, i would describe north pole as a really good number one gun album. lead singer jeff schneeweis has alway released quality albums that deal with themes like redemption, never giving up, and hope for the underdog. north pole's themes, style and overall quality align well with number one gun's two previous releases: celebrate mistakes and promises for the imperfect. the best of you and me (track 3) is an impressive deviation from number one gun's standard indie-pop and proof that jeff knows his way around the recording studio. in recent years jeff has made a name for himself producing new bands and got good enough at it that he wrote, played and produced north pole on his own.

you can snag north pole project at any best buy, online at smartpunk or if you live in salt lake city, any graywhale location.
