A Church on Vulcan is the debut full length release from one of the most electrifying groups to come out of Baltimore in some time, Bond St. District. The album has been a true labor of love for more than a year now. Rapper DDM and producer Paul Hutson hold nothing back on these 11 tracks. Recorded and mixed at Wright Way Studios with Rob Girardi, the group set out to make a hip hop record that doesn't sound or look like all of the other hip hop records out there and they succeeded in every way possible.
Bond St. District also called in a few friends to help out on A Church On Vulcan. Katrina Ford (Celebration, Mt. Royal) is featured on the album opener. Hemlock Ernst (Future Islands Sam Herring) and EZE Jackson contribute verses to "Terror Era." Josephine Olivia (Blacksage) finds herself singing the chorus on "Hey Arnold" and Ashley Alexander (Don Henley, Joe Walsh) sings the irresistible hook in "Yesterdays."
Other contributions include the unbelievable Wendel Patrick laying his keys across a couple of songs, John Dierker (Microkingdom) blows his sax on "Yesterdays" alongside Ben Frock (trumpet), Nicole Connelly (trombone) and Matthew Lampart (drum and synth programming).
