Are so good. I know it is lame to post video after video without giving away music. I am still working on getting back up and running on that end but this video is so beautiful it would be a tragedy if everyone did not see it. The Morning Benders are a little band based out of San Francisco (who also recently stopped by to hang out with Will). Together they created this beautiful, truly worthy of Blogotheque acclaim video with a room full of random musicians on guitar, violin, fiddle and a swarm of lovely lady singers. The overall effect is what makes you love music. I am completely sold. The Morning Benders are currently touring and will be stopping by SXSW. They are on one of my favorite labels, Rough Trade. Their new album, Big Echo comes out on March 9th. PERFECT! Enjoy!

Yours Truly loves Mountain Man

As South By Southwest rears it's ugly bbq sauce smeared face at all of us who are clamoring to book out bands in every video blog, showcase and interview of import it is nice to see the warm cloud of industry buzz building around some bands that I am highly excited about. One of them are the Mountain Man, those three lovely ladies from the green hills of Vermont. They recently stopped by YoursTruly in San Francisco for a little song. Escaping the cold rain and elements of the Bay-Area winter their individual fragile calls combine into one blazingly haunting melody. It is beyond beautiful. Keep an eye on this one, I know I sure am!
