Quote by:
Will Oldham

“As soon as it becomes your profession to critique a book, or movie, or record then, not only do you lose your passion for it, but it loses validity for whoever you’re trying to turn it onto because they’re going to be approaching it from a consumer’s point of view, not from a professional writer’s point of view.”

Catfish Haven / Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin on Tour

As the title explains, Catfish Haven and Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin are touring together this month and as a gift to you, Catfish Haven's publicist has sent out an exclusive mp3 for me to pass along.

Catfish Haven has recently released a new CD/EP on Secretly Canadian entitled Please Come Back that coincides with their touring efforts. Catfish Haven, named after a trailer park in Missouri, is George Hunter - Vocals and Guitar, Miguel Castillo - Bass, and Ryan Farnham - Drums. The band howls with soul and emotion from start to finish and I suggest catching them live if you have the chance. Check out You Can Have Me, from their latest EP release.

.: You Can Have Me

.: Madaline (new demo)

Hailing from Springfield, MO, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin plays emotional power pop in the vein of The Shins. SSLYBY is John Robert Carwell -- Vocals, Guitar and Bass, Philip Dickeu -- Vocals, Drums and Guitar, Jonathan James -- Bass and Drums, and Will Knauer -- Guitar. My first exposure to the band was through Catbird Records first release (now sold out) and I've been in love ever since. Still unsigned at the moment, (that's going to change soon) this upcoming tour will be great exposure for both bands. With their solid songwriting and lovable persona SSLYBY are definitely a band to watch in 2006. Check out the track Accident from a live acoustic set on KDRU.

.: House Fire (from Broom)
