just a thought...
"Hand on String is a melodic, melancholy collection reminiscent of artists like Nick Drake and Smog."
You may not know Mike Andrews' name, but you surely know his work. He's responsible for the wonderful scores for Donnie Darko, Me and You and Everyone We Know, and Freaks and Geeks, and is also credited as a producer/songwriter/composer on albums from the likes of Brendan Benson and Metric.
Andrews is now ready to release his solo debut, Hand on String, May 23 on Elgin Park Recordings. It's a beautiful, and at times dark, collection of songs that range from psych-folk to more melodic Beatles-esque pop. Recommended for fans of Nick Drake or Elliott Smith.

Okay, I'm off to the airport to pick up various band members and bloggers for tonight's events. I hope to see you all at The Cavern. And I plan on posting sporadically from SXSW next week, but while I'm out of town, my boy Kevin So Much Silence will be running things around here. He's got some good stuff lined up for you, so be sure to stop by and show him some love (I'm talking to you, anonymous commenter guy).
