Band Of Annuals Showin' You the Countryside!

Wednesday, August 13, 2008

Salt Lake's 6-piece, Band Of Annuals has all the heartfillers of country, unique blends of folk-pop, and enough story tellin' to keep you company. I begin to reminisce a compilation of bitter sweet moments when I listen to tracks like "If You're Looking for Love" and "Don't Let Me Die." This stuff is turning indie kids into country lovers. They've got a couple EPs out and their full-length release last year, Let Me Live is full steam ahead to your ears with an awesome tour going on and and and there's a Cinema Bar show tonight in Culver City!

Laura Cantrell's Country Folk Is Back!

Wednesday, March 26, 2008

Finally She's back! After 3 long years, NY's Laura Cantrell is back with a digital release of her new album Trains and Boats and Planes due out mid-April! But that's not the only rad news; Laura recently had a child! Her new album is an awesome collection of covers that are themed on travel. I personally love travel songs, great for roadtrips...I love the open road (or more open than usual). Also Cantrell's got 3 of her own joints on this album as well. We got the New Order cover off the new album and two previously released tracks!

Hotel Cafe with Limbeck!

Friday, October 12, 2007

If you are a fan of folk or country music then you are in for a treat; a musical treat that is. If you are not a fan, now is your chance to convert. Expand your musical horizons and give them a listen! They are called Limbeck and they are from a little place called Orange County. Their music has a very American, folk-pop, nostalgic feel to it. Something I highly recommend listening to while you and your friends embark on a road trip or maybe just that perfect nap under the tree. I first heard Limbeck when I was in high school. I believe off of a sampler a friend of mine had. I liked it. It wasn't super spectacular or anything, not mediocre either. Just good. Real good. I don't know if this makes any sense, but maybe when you listen you'll understand. They released a new self-titled Album this year available through Dog House Records and for the month of October they will be playing at Hotel Cafe! If you go to a show they'll allow you to download the live performance.

Additional Tracks
Sin City
Trouble (live)

Bonus Track off the motioncitysoundtrack/limbeck split 7

And so it is.
