Peter & the Wolf
"There is an AM radio quality to these songs that is impossible to deny. I am reminded in some ways of Iron & Wine, though I feel this is much better."
Austin's Peter and the Wolf (aka Red Hunter and friends) recently wrapped up a trip out West to record at L.A.'s Moonshine Studios, where the above photo was taken for a feature/review in Spin Magazine...I've been listening to my Peter & the Wolf records quite a bit lately, and that "A.M. radio quality" definitely exists, which give the songs a certain haunting resonance. And if you get a chance to see Red and the boys live, don't miss it.

Texas Gigs has asked yours truly, along w/ Garrison from Indie Interviews, to do a new weekly podcast for their show, The Fine Line. For our first installment, Garrison and I got together and discussed new releases and bands that will be rolling through town, including Morningwood, The W.A.S., SOUND team, Tapes 'n Tapes, and more.
Disclaimer: We sound ridiculous on this first podcast, but I was like, getting over a cold or something. And we didn't prepare at all...Garrison and I can assure you that the next installment will not suck.
The lovely Sara Culler mentioned gorilla vs. bear on her own site, and she thanked us for featuring her music. She's a Dallas girl living in Sweden, and her music is beautiful, so it was the least we could do...look for big things from Sara and her main man, the great David Fridlund, in 2006. And thank you Sara, for introducing David to Nick Cave...his cover of "Into My Arms" is gorgeous.
