just in case you didnt see it on paste, here is the official video for “the mirror” off the mirror, a record everyone should go out on buy.
here’s two videos from the northside fest in brooklyn on 6.18.11. thanks to adam for sharing! if bob or rich happens to see this, stop being dicks and come to new orleans!
both off bakesale which clocked in at #34 on my top 50 all time list. brilliant piece of work.
hello! here be a new song/video from centro-matic’s forthcoming candidate waltz which is due out on 6.21 and can be pre-ordered here. at this point in the year, theres a very very tight race for my favorite record of the year, this is one of em, the other two, isbell’s here we rest and roadside graves’ we can take care of ourselves. first listen through though kinda threw me for a loop cause its kinda different than any other centro-matic record, at least to these ears. after a couple more listens though, the genius comes through.
this here performance was taped by the folks at live and breathing, a site i had never heard of before up until about an hour ago, but they got a shit load of what seem to be awesome live sessions. this track is from jill”s upcoming release, the mirror, which is due out on 6.7. i was hoping to have a copy of it by now, but was never sent. (sad face, drags branch)
hey howdy hi! those first two tracks or actual videos, are from the forthcoming richmond fontaine record, the high country which is due out shortly, i believe. i def know the first one is cause its called “let me dream of the high country” and the second one entitled, “meet me on the logging road” doesnt sound familiar to me, so i can only assume. much thanks to sandy from slowcoustic for bringing this to my attention. if you click that link up a yonder you can download a free richmond fontaine show via their bandcamp site.
