The National have a great new live video for "Terrible Love" from P4K. Love it. New album out soon.
Daytrotter is the amazing online music site that brings in some of the absolute best, new indie music bands for live sessions given away for free. Check out the number of bands in their music vault. It's one of my favorite music resources. This is the third year of their Barnstormer tour. This year was Pearly Gate Music, Nathaniel Rateliff, Free Energy (stream free right now), Ra Ra Riot and Delta Spirit. We went to the Lake Geneva show (which was pushed at the last minute to Elkhorn, WI) and it was amazing. I still can't believe in the middle of nowhere Wisconsin Molly and I were able to see these great bands for $10. Daytrotter = outstanding.
I'll highlight some of these bands in the weeks to come. My absolute favorite band at Barnstormer was Delta Spirit. Love their album, Ode to Sunshine. Here's my video of one of the new songs on their next album, followed by a great Take Away Show of "Trashcan" and "People C'mon"...
