Alcoa, the solo project of Derek Archambault of Defeater, is gearing up for the release of Bone & Marrow on February 26th. In anticipation of the release, Diffuser.fm has premiered the first single off of the record, "Keep Track / Lose Track", today - check it out here

Bone & Marrow was recorded in mid-2012, first in Derek's hometown of Portsmouth, NH, then at Mike Moschetto's The Office Recording (N. Andover, MA) and at Jay Maas' Getaway Recording Studio (for vocal tracks and mastering). This debut album will feature eleven pop/country-tinged songs about life, love and regret. Also prevalent on the album is the addition of instrumentation like upright bass, banjo, fiddle, pedal steel, piano/organ, and charming guy/girl dueling vocals (featuring Archambault's fiance Alyssa Eygnor), making it Alcoa's most complete and mature effort to date.
