New Green Gerry LP Coming Soon; Watch a Video for ‘La La Lonely Maria #1’

Though songwriter Gerry Green now resides in Los Angeles, he got his musical start in Athens, wowing crowds around town with his psych-tinged folk-pop and helping to establish the volatile local arts collective Birdhouse Collection before splitting for the West Coast.

As Green Gerry, Green has released two stellar LPs, 2010’s Odd Tymes and last year’s King Baby (Flagpole review); both showcase the songwriter’s ear for strange melody and not-of-this-world lyricism.

Now, local video company Dominar has released a very dirty (you’ll see) music video for “La La Lonely Maria #1,” a pop-forward King Baby tune.

The press release hints that Green is currently hard at work on a third full-length, reportedly titled Electric Iron. Stay tuned.
