New Album Release: Atlas

A Few Words - The American Dollar.mp3 (right click to save) [audio:few words.mp3]

Equinox - The American Dollar.mp3 (right click to save) [audio:equinox.mp3]

The two man instrumental band known as The American Dollar has done it again!
Their latest album, Atlas, provides a vast soundscape with some fresh perspective.  There's more character in this album and they took some risks by trying some new techniques and sounds.
Check out their MySpace and grab the album if you enjoy it as much as I do.

bazan back in full form

Curse Your Branches by David Bazan on Grooveshark
Lost My Shape by David Bazan on Grooveshark
David Bazan is the greatest songwriter of this decade. There I said it. The Christians hate him because he's turned his back on them, the atheists scoff at him because he still talks about God. He may have lost his faith but he hasn't lost his ability to engineer lyrical genius. After a long wait and a string of house shows across the west coast Bazan released his highly anticipated full-length solo album a few months ago. Curse Your Branches from Barsuk records is in stores now and on iTunes.
