Sorry About Dresden

So, if you were Conor Oberst’s brother and had your own band, would it be hard to escape claims of nepotism? Especially if you were both on Saddle Creek? Yeah, I am glad neither of my siblings blogs so I don’t have that shadow to stand in. Ha!

Anyway, familial relations notwithstanding, I am very much enjoying the laid-back front porch opening and driving build of this track from Sorry About Dresden. Matt Oberst and Matt Tomich have relocated from scenic Nebraska and now call Chapel Hills home. Joined by Eric Roehrig and James Hepler, they seem to have a nice little band goin. They have actually been making music since 1997 and have quite a name for themselves on the North Carolina college indie rock scene. They kind of remind me of early Pavement.

Sick and Sore from Let It Rest

Other mp3s available from the band section of the Saddle Creek website (frames won’t let me link you directly).

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
