been a fan of ben for quite a while now and he never fails to deliver. his new record w burnt sky is called “horizon line fires” and i believe it is out now. he’s got some upcoming shows in the atlanta so make sure you check out his site for dates.
one of my favorite bands for the past 10 yrs or so has been strand of oaks, and in celebration of their masterful 2010 record “pope killdragon” turning 7, they’ve made it free via bandcamp or obviously you could throw a couple bucks his way. not sure how long this will be good for, but i cannot recommend it enough, and that goes for their entire catalogue. you will not be disappointed, trust me on this one. let be i known, this is for the digital download version of “pope killdragon,” not any other format.
here’s a few of my favorite strand tracks
this maldives record came out in 05, i believe. its called ‘listen to the thunder’ and its fucking amazing. it was one of my favorite records from that year and i still listen to it quite often. this song, “blood relations,” holds quite a bit of emotional value to me. in other news, i just found out they have a new record out called “mad lives” which i will have to check out. you can stream “listen to the thunder” in its entirety below.
