Buskers play across the street from the HQ

The sound of the singing saw and a trumpet along with a few banjos and an accordion wafted across the street this afternoon. Sgt. Dunbar were passing through after playing Athens Popfest and decided to play a few tunes on our corner. Lindsey and I opened our street front windows and enjoyed a Neutral Milk Hotel cover and the novelty of seeing someone smoke while playing the trumpet and saxophone.

Thanks for stopping by, Sgt. Dunbar!

Release week fun with The Music Tapes!

"So, I like to read with a candle on my chest during the wintertime."
Largehearted Boy has a list of Julian Koster's reading recommendations.

"Unless you’re already a Music Tapes fan, chances are you haven’t experienced anything quite as exquisitely raw, effortlessly transportive, and charmingly distinct in a long time."
Tiny Mix Tapes gave Music Tapes for Clouds and Tornadoes a score of Eureka!

You Ain't No Picasso featured videos of "Television Tell Us" and "Majesty" from the band's Athens PopFest appearance last weekend!

Visit your local record store or order Music Tapes for Clouds and Tornadoes from Merge Mail Order!
