Oh, the shame of it all, overlooking such a newsworthy item. It took 48 hours for Ben Sollee fans to pledge the money to record Half-Made Man. He’s recording with engineer Kevin Rattermann at an old parishioner’s house here in town, along with Carl Broemel of My Morning Jacket, the Turtle Island String Quartet’s Jeremy Kittel () and Sollee’s percussionist, Jordon Ellis. Sans producer. Release date is Fall 2012.
