good asian drivers' drive away home release party


Kit Yan and Melissa Li, aka Good Asian Drivers, inform me that they recently completed their debut joint studio album Drive Away Home. Get yours here at a special discounted price, along with a free download card of the complete album.
Self-produced and independently released, Drive Away Home marks Li and Yan's first collaborative record since the beginning of their partnership in November 2007. Capturing the spirit of their previous summer tour, the collection of songs and poems reflects stories heard and told on the road. The album features the talents of Mara Levi and veteran drummer Ashley Baier, who will be joining the Good Asian Drivers on tour this summer.
I just got my copy in the mail, so I haven't given it a good listen yet, but based on the samples at their website it's groovy folk/rock/pop stuff with a poetic punch. They also have one of the best names for a band. Ever.

To celebrate the release of Drive Away Home, they're throwing a release party this Thursday, June 25 at New York City's legendary Stonewall Inn. Some info for ya:
