My band came out with a new album, it's kind of a mix of things, it's folkish but it's kind of progressive, it's delves into more experimental stuff at points and sometimes more rock (think Built To Spill, Wilco). Stuff that might be of more interest to the ND crowd would be the tracks Fading Stars and Bears Staring at The Universe.
Happy Tuesday everyone!
Here is a band I represent called Shawn Nelson & The Good Buds from Austin, TX. Their new EP is called ENOUGH! and can be found here:
The EP demands a listen as it may just strike a chord about what is going on with everyone these days. I think it's fair to say we've all had enough!
From their website...
"The title track is not so much a protest song, though it cites Woody Guthrie, as much as a double-punching expression of exasperation at the forces that divide people rather than unite them. "I don't know if one side is right and the other side is wrong," explains Nelson. "All of us just need to say we're not gonna take this stuff anymore and come up with a new way of doing things. I don't know what the answers are. But I do know that people have had enough of everything." Where that song is an overview of the state of the nation, the track that follows, "Come What May," grew out of an impulse to explain the world to his young son and became a microcosmic statement of his commitment to always fight to be free. "One Day" takes its cue from the beat of reggae and its message of finding redemption. The EP closes with "Yea Ya Right," an infectious celebration of all the music that inspires him like "Robert Earl Keen, Townes Van Zandt, Kermit Ruffins and the Rebirth Brass Band," as the lyrics explain, and so much more.
