Win a pair of tickets to the Rachel Taylor Brown album release show, Sunday May 4th at Mississippi Studios!
Here’s how: just find an image that could be the inspiration for a new song. The image can be from anywhere. Think of it as the heart of a song, it should embody a strong mood or suggest a story. Send it on over – you could win free tickets, and I could write a new song based on it!
Tweet the image to me using the link below, or you could post it here in a comment. The winner will be announced next Saturday, May 3rd, the day before the show.
“Goodnight” official video
In the spirit of Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests series, I present to you my sweet dog Quinn, starring in a brand new video for “Goodnight”.
He takes a page out of Red House Painters/Sun Kil Moon leader Mark Kozelek’s unusual-cover playbook with a tender, elegiac country-folk reading of John Mellencamp’s “Cherry Bomb.”
Thanks to Mark Suppanz for the great writeup!
