Truersounds – Spring ‘11

Here we are spring (on the damn dime!), and with a new Truersounds comp. This one is for all the folks out there with CXCW withdrawl. If you missed CXCW, just know you missed the best online music festival to date.  Go check out the killer vids of artists performing on their couch (including one Neko Case who serenades her dog Liza from her bed).

This one’s a bit more on the rock side with some great ballads dotted throughout, lot’s of good new stuff

01-The Civil Wars-Barton Hollow [Off their new album of the same name]

02-Middle Brother-Blue Eyes [new "supergroup" that combines members of Dawes, Deer Tick, and Delta Spirit. This is off their self titled debut]

03-Moondoggies-Tidelands [I like to call these guys "stoner country", this is the title track off their latest album]

04-Rodney DeCroo-Sorrow On The Mountain [off his latest album Queen Mary Trash]

05-Joey Kneisser-William, The Mountain, and Me [Joey Kneisser from Glossary with this song off the amazing compilation Music For The Mountains, to raise awareness of mountain top removal in the Appalachias . Look for more on this soon]

06-Ted Russell Kamp-California Wildflower [off his latest Back To The Land]

07-Doc Dailey & Magnolia Devil-Prove Me Wrong [off their latest Victims, Enemies and Old Friends. You gotta check out his CXCW session]

11-Jessica Lea Mayfield-I’ll Be The One You Want Someday [The album version, off her latest Tell Me. Really dig her ethereal voice with that portishead like reverbed guitar]

    Great first track. Thanks for the good work – Where else in the UK can one hear this stuff? Radio 1? I don’t think so.
