The Brooklyn-based indie-folk The Welcome Wagon (Monique and Vito Aiuto) are premiering their Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas record-release special for their new record Esther on the Asthmatic Kitty Records (AKR) Youtube page at 8pm EST. Find the premiere page HERE.
Filmed in a retired Lutheran chapel somewhere in the swamps of Jersey, the special features songs from the duo’s new album ‘Esther,’ plus one classic. Surrounded by friends and family, Monique & Vito are joined on stage by a host of talented musicians – plus a few special guests! It’s a cozy watch – perfect for this time of year! Vito and Monique will be chatting live with viewers in the Youtube chat during the premiere.
Esther is The Welcome Wagon’s fourth album and is part of an ongoing audiovisual collaboration between Monique and Vito. Monique has made a painting to correspond to each of Vito’s songs on the album, three of which are featured in the album’s artwork, with a limited edition print of the piece “Isaiah, California” available as part of a special LP bundle. The 10-track album will be released on November 4th (Asthmatic Kitty Records).
