* Speaking of mix-pods and tape-casts, a pipin’-fresh installment of We Own This Town’s podcast came down the line yesterday. It’s Volume 41, and it features tunes from a whole bunch of outfits I heartily endorse: CCTV, The Zut Alors, The Non-Coms, William Tyler, Hands Down Eugene and more.
* Speaking of Hands Down Eugene, HDE frontman Matt Moody’s A Country Gentleman has a brand-new single for your listening pleasure. It’s called “Drive Across America,” and you can download it at this link right here. A Country Gentleman shall play Tristen’s album release tonight, as will PUJOL. Battle Tapes’ Jeremy Ferguson says, “please learn all the lyrics so you can sing along with us tonight.” You can stop spamming us now, Ferg-Burg. ;)
* Speaking of fresh tracks, fellow bloggerinos and newly formed label Nashville’s Dead just announced their third release: It’s D. Watusi’s “Summer Nights” b/w “I Hate You” and “Weekend Delinquent.” It won’t be out until March, but you can already hear an MP3 of “Summer Nights” over at ND. Keep it up, dudes.
