Deer Tick

Yesterday i had one of those delightful days where i stumbled across a new band to enjoy and share. Deer Tick is the creation of John McCauley who hails from Providence, Rhode Island. At first listen i fell in love with his old-time sound and blissfully pleasant songwriting. Much like The Rosewood Thieves he reminds me of Bob Dylan and has surprising depth and maturity for someone so young. New to the scene in 2005 John has since collaborated with Viking Moses, Jana Hunter, Nat Baldwin, and Jason Anderson. He is performing tonight and tomorrow out in Brooklyn and sadly i will not be able to attend either show, but i invite you to check him out. His first official release, 'War Elephant' is being released via Houston's Feow! Records on September 4th. Also coming up for John, on Friday, August 24th Deer Tick will be the featured artist of the day via SPIN Magazine-so keep an eye out!

I only just heard of Deer Tick. Now that I know you're onto things before the rest of us, I'm going to start following your blog. Have you seen him live? I'm going next week, excited.
