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.
