A new Elvis Perkins song. Actually not a new one in the sense that it hasn’t been heard before. And actually not an Elvis Perkins song. The band has been taking to playing “Weeping Pilgrim” at their shows for a while now, and the classic folk song was re-recorded by Elvis Perkins in Dearland for a Sacred Harp Songbook compilation. Download it over at Heather’s place, I am Fuel, You are Friends.
A new Sea Wolf song too… Also courtesy of Heather. The song was created as part of a companion soundtrack that is inspired by the book it comes with, which is titled A Wolf at the Table. The song is called “Song for the Magpie.”
Stream it! Merge, the label for The Broken West, have a full album stream of the band’s latest full-length, Now or Heaven. The album officially arrives September 9. Listen here.
And another new band with a new album… Islands side-project Human Highway are streaming their new record in its entirety on their myspace. Moody Motorcycle arrives in stores next Tuesday, August 19.
