Now, 17 years after its initial release, David Dondero's cult classic 2003 album The Transient (originally released on CD by Future Farmer Recordings) is finally being released on 180gram vinyl.

This first pressing includes 250 limited copies on smoky (Ashes on the Highway) vinyl. The album was recorded by Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, Jenny Lewis, Rilo Kiley) at Presto! Recording Studios in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Mastered for vinyl by Carl Saff. David Dondero is a songwriter's songwriter who's flown under the radar for years, even though he often logs 200 shows a year, touring with the likes of Pedro the Lion and Against! Me.

"This is the sound of a man on fire. Smart, funny and honestly out of his mind; but he comes back long enough to sing about it.

One of the best singer/songwriters I've ever heard."-- Bob Boilen, NPR // "Dondero is this generation's Townes Van Zandt, a peripatetic tumbleweed casting across the country's highways and dirt roads searching for truth and love.

His reedy tenor shuffles through clever verbal forays, over raga-muffin folk, brightened by Dondero's road-wizened stoicism"-- Houston Chronicle
