The Lost Ark Studio presents "The Grape and The Grain" by Blackout Party - the latest single from the studio's Lost Ark Studio Compilation - Vol. 01. Blackout Party has a long history with the Lost Ark - theirs was first project that brought Mike Butler to the studio as a producer, and off we went from there. This track has all you'd expect from this kick ass band, play it loud!
Voted "Best Americana" band at the 2011 San Diego Music Awards, Blackout Party is a five piece rock band based in San Diego, CA. The band has built up a solid following with residencies at House of Blues, Riviera Supper Club, and has shared the stage with Blue Cheer, Lucero, and White Buffalo at the famed San Diego club, The Casbah. Their second album, "Closed Mouth Don't Get Fed", was recorded at the Lost Ark Studio, released in 2011, and the band wrapped up 2011 by opening for My Morning Jacket and Delta Spirit at FM 94.9's annual Holiday Hootenanny. The station added "Spanish Gold" into daily rotation, and the record was 94.9's "Recommended" for the month of November in 2011. Add in "Closed Mouth Don't Get Fed" winning "Best Local Recording" at the 2012 San Diego Music Awards and there you are!
