In 2012, Hurray for the Riff Raff recorded My Dearest, Darkest Neighbor to help pay for the release of Look Out Mama. The stripped-down collection of covers was a premium for contributors to the Look Out Mama Kickstarter campaign. Now, the album has found a second life. It will be released through iTunes and other online retailers July 1 by Mod Mobilian/This is American Music. The album includes songs by Lucinda Williams, Townes Van Zandt, George Harrison, Hank Williams, Lead Belly, Joni Mitchell and more.

This is a rare foray into releasing music for Mod Mobilian, the Mobile-based music website (which is also part of the SouthSounds Review aggregation site with My Spilt Milk).
