In July of 2011 Jenny contacted Geordie, John, and longtime Barmitzvah Brothers guitarist Tristan O’Malley in order to record an album dedicated to the imminent birth of her second child. The band had gone on hiatus in 2008 – giving each of the three youths time to follow their own course both as people and musicians. John vied to become the subject of a Bruce Springsteen song by marrying early and becoming a factory worker moonlighting as a rock musician; Geordie worked hard towards international pop superstardom, recording and touring with Islands and his own band the Magic; and Jenny commenced her career as Jenny Omnichord, solo touring musician and hardworking mother of the little son, Otis.
But similar to her album of duets for Otis, Jenny wanted a special album to welcome her second baby into the world. Over the course of a week, Jenny, Geordie, John, and Tristan reunited at Andy Magoffin’s House of Miracles in London Ontario to record “Growing Branches”, a series of songs celebrating the music of the Barmitzvah Brothers as well as babies, mothers, little sisters and older brothers.
The band released “Growing Branches” digitally on Zunior on September 16th 2011, on the day Jenny gave birth to her first little girl, Arrow. It marks 10 years since the Barmitzvah Brothers’ first record, 11 years as a band, and just for fun it is being released on 11/11/11 as 11th release on Label Fantastic! There are 24 different album covers, and each CD comes with a different selection of four band and family photos.
Paul Almond is awesome! On this record he is backed by the Blowbots, who are Richard Laviolette on drums, and Jenny Mitchell on bass. The music is like a punk version of Daniel Johnson. It’s a hi-fi recording of a low-fi basement band. There are songs about nymphs, diarrhea, dragons and dinghies.
Recorded at the House of Miracles April 2011.
