happy saturday, i guess? this is off of one of my favorite records of 2012, strand of oaks’ dark shores. sadly, i dont remember where it came in cause i lost about 8 months worth posts due to my former host bailing on me. either way, its a brilliant record. this particular version comes from strand of oaks’ darker shores which is different takes on some of the songs off dark shores.

strand of oaks “maureen’s”

Posted by gregor on Tuesday, June 19th, 2012

y’all know, well those that frequent this joint, that i have a man crush on timothy showalter who is strand of oaks. its not really a crush on him, even though he’s an awesome dude, but his music. to me, its some of the most honest stuff that is being recorded today. his new single entitled “maureen’s” from his forthcoming dark shores continues that trend. i am not sure whats going on, if anything, in mr showalter’s life but its hard not to take “maureen’s” at face value. maybe its purely 3rd person kind of stuff, but to me it sounds too personal. either way, this song is breaking my heart. cannot wait for dark shores. im guessing top ten material without a doubt.

you can download “maureen’s” via the link below or via his bandcamp page.
