Ida:: My Fair, My Dark EP; covers Dolly Parton

On the heels of Lovers Prayers, Ida has prepared My Fair, My Dark EP to be released by Polyvinyl on August 5th. Seven songs that the band was playing when they thought the tape machines were turned off, loose around the edges but sealed with a kiss. This EP compiles two unreleased originals, alongside covers of songs by Anne Briggs, John & Beverley Martyn, Dolly Parton, and David Schickele. On “Late Blues,” recorded during one of Ida’s performances at The Midnight Ramble, they were joined by the mighty Levon Helm himself. Produced by Warn Defever of His Name Is Alive, art by Tara Jane O’neil. Ida will be playing some shows leading up to the release with Michael Hurley and Alan Sparhawk’s Retribution Gospel Choir.
