Brooklyn, New York's The Honorary Title began as a moniker for Jarrod Gorbel's solo folk musings and then evolved into a full-fledged quartet which produced a beautifully ragged sound with hints of indie pop, Americana, Britpop, and punk-rock.
Back in 2003, The Honorary Title was Gorbel and multi-instrumentalist Aaron Kamstra, who plugged away on the New York City club circuit before signing to indie label Doghouse Records. In 2004, Gorbel and Kamstra released their debut Anything Else But the Truth, which combined the unbridled passion of Gorbel's vocals with pop hooks and keenly observed, poetic lyrics.
Produced by Roger Moutenot (Yo La Tengo, Guster), it earned accolades from Rolling Stone ("a soaring, heart-rending debut,") and Spin (which praised Gorbel's "winning humor and killer pipes,"). Nominated in August 2004 for the prestigious Shortlist Music Prize (alongside Franz Ferdinand, The Killers, TV on The Radio and many more), the album's popularity kept the duo on the road for years.
Doghouse Records is pleased to offer a colored double vinyl repress of The Honorary Title's auspicious debut Anything Else But the Truth complete with bonus tracks not found on the CD version.
