“i lose my faith in people, why even take the time? youve got your problems, i’ve got mine.” for the last 4/5 years, i honestly dont even know how many years its been, but timothy showalter has been one of my favorite artists for a good amount of time now. the first time i heard “end in flames” off his strand of oaks debut leave ruin i knew this guy and his music would play a huge part in my life. every record, leave ruin, pope killdragon and dark shores, i believe ended up in my top 5/10 of the year. timothy’s new record heal is due on dead oceans on 6.24. i was hoping to have the record in my mitts, by now, but sadly tis not the case. even after 9 years of music “blogging” i still cant get on some labels distribution lists. oh well, not too bitter. i kid, i kid, kind of. no doubt this will be one of my favorite records of the year.

last year’s mc taylor and hiss golden messenger’s haw was really my find of the year, it was in my top 5 records of the year, and if i had to do it again, i would probably rank it higher. although, at number 3, thats probably a bout right. either way, the record is truly brilliant, i still listen to the hell out of it. well, he’s got a new tune out called “brother, do you know the road,” which was premiered earlier today on uncut. its not technically a new tune as he plays it often, live, but this first time actually being recorded. he’s got a new one coming out in september, i believe, on merge. you can buy it on itunes or listen to it on spotify. he’s touring overseas so make sure you check out his facebook page for dates and whatnot.
EDIT: the embed wasnt working earlier, now it is. yay merge!

so decided to post whatever showed up in my inbox yesterday. i only had one condition, the email had to include a soundcloud link. i probably got a total of 75 emails yesterday and these were the only ones with links to soundcloud or bandcamp – there was one. there were quite a few youtube videos, and just random announcements that mostly bordered on ridiculous. also, i would say a good 95 percent of what i am sent, i would never ever listen to. so people are just throwin shit against a wall in the hopes that a piece finds a crack.
