Whispertown

Check out this brilliant compilation that my friends at Yellow Bird Project are soon releasing. It’s an album of YBP musicians covering other YBP musicians. They’re doing a fundraising campaign to help pay for the mastering, artwork, marketing, and distribution. If you pledge some money you’ll get some pretty cool prizes. Whats even cooler? One of my favourite photographs of Shane is on the cover of the record & on a new t-shirt! Pitchfork posted a nice write-up about it too. Just look at this playlist…

2. Hayden – Family Tree (TV on the Radio)
3. Elvis Perkins ft. Alec Ounsworth – Mexican Ritual (Alec Ounsworth)
