Human Highway (feat Islands' Nick Thorburn and Jim Guthrie) Announces Debut Release on Suicide Squeeze!

Human Highway
(featuring Nick Thorburn of Islands and Jim Guthrie)
Announce Debut Album, “Moody Motorcycle,“ out August 19th on Suicide Squeeze!

“Moody Motorcycle” by Human Highway presents a sound reminiscent to that of 50’s / 60’s soul and doo-wop (i.e. the Everly Brothers), created by Islands member Nick Thorburn and Jim Guthrie (Guthrie is also an acclaimed solo musician currently working on a new album which is the follow-up to his 2004 release Now, More Than Ever.)

The album, which Guthrie says features “hot man on man vocal action,” was put together in the course of one week at his house in downtown Toronto (what is said to be the only “House” in all of downtown Toronto), where the two spent their entire week both sleeping on, and recording on, Jim’s living room couch (“my butt didn’t leave that couch for the entire week” says Thorburn)

Human Highway came about while Guthrie and Thorburn were on tour with Islands, and was an idea which stemmed from the duo’s mutual respect for each other as musicians.

Look out for some very exciting surprises around the release of “Moody Motorcycle,” including an upcoming video, “classic” vinyl courtesy of Suicide Squeeze, a Canadian release courtesy of Secret City Records, and sporadic, one-off North American dates, all to be announced in the coming months.
