Arts Corner: Seattle Garage-Soul Stars Pickwick Set to Release Debut LP

February 12, 2013


The Leavenworth Leisure Games are right around the corner. This Saturday at the Festhalle will bring

Seattle garage soul band Pickwick, who are finally set to release their much-anticipated debut full length album

March 12th.
The band is about to embark

on a national tour, but KOHO’s Isaac Kaplan-Woolner got to visit with lead singer Galen Disston and

keyboardist Cassady Lillstrom at their band house and home recording studio. It was Pickwick’s band practice

night, and some of those brand new sounds can be heard coming up from the basement during the interview.

breakout single Hacienda Motel. Again, Pickwick’s debut full length album “Can’t Talk

Medicine” is out March 12th, including 4 re-recorded songs from the demo records. You can pre-order at
