“Record Store Application” by Toothpastefordinner.com
So just a recap and a a couple of things I noticed on the webs that I thought I would translate into my own post of sorts. Yeah…
- Strand of Oaks has a bootleg out from a Chicago show back in 2008 (it has a couple of tracks from both albums “Leave Ruin” and the new one “Pope Killdragon”). Speaking of Pope Killdragon – this album is fighting with the next artist in this post for my favourite album of the year so far….just sayin’. Listen to one of the tracks: “Alex Kona (live)”. FIND THE BOOTLEG over on 17dots.com HERE. Buy some some Oaks on eMusic HERE.
- So, the other artist that is currently battling for my favourite album of the year is J. Tillman. I have always been a fanboy, so it isn’t a surprise. Nothing to drastically new on the album, it is just more of the classic hushed Tillman that is amazing and I just can’t get enough of. I noticed a nice photo set from the July 27th show at the Troubadour on the CreepingElm blog. Wish I was there for Tillman and Phosphorescent! See it HERE. Listen to a track from Singing Ax (Sept. 14th, Western Vinyl): “Three Sisters”
- Caleb Coy (who will be our next release on Yer Bird Records) was showing off a cover song the other day and it is damn good. The track is a cover of Richard Dobson (see a video of the original here) from his brand new Tumblr site, visit him! Listen to the track: “Suited Me (Richard Dobson Cover)”. Visit the Yer Bird page for another download here.
That is all I got today, so dig in.
