• Charlottesville rock group Cataract Camp finally released its Travis Morrison-produced album Sing Rain [Washington CityPaper]. It’s the only album ever produced by Morrison, and it was recorded way back in 2005. Why now? “I went back to listen to the record and it was something I was really proud of,” says keyboardist and singer Zach Carter, a D.C. resident. “I’m 29 now, thinking then that this is something I did five, six years ago and I just have not wanted to deal with it at all. When I think about it [now], I’m like, ‘This is really pretty good.’ We spent a lot of time and put a lot of energy into it.” Check it out on the group’s Bandcamp page.
