What other people know/have and I now like/recommend

“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.
