Country Mile by Renaissance Kids published on 2013-06-29T22:12:17Z First conceived of in 2009 as a disc of "country-ish" material (in sound, themes, or both), "Country Cauldron" ultimately wound up being recorded sporadically over the following three years. Nick and Scott wrote and recorded many of the tracks separately, though there are a couple of numbers on which they collaborated. Throughout the imagining and creation of the record, they were inspired and influenced by great country-leaning work from some of their favorite artists. These included Ween's "12 Golden Country Greats," The Kinks' "Muswell Hillbillies," The Rolling Stones' "Beggars Banquet" and "Exile On Main St." and Bob Dylan's "John Wesley Harding" and "Nashville Skyline." The album features guest appearances by Dylan Addison and Tyler Foley.
