Alan Sparhawk, one-third of indie band Low, and part of the inspiration for Linescratchers, was recently interviewed by Independent.ie, which apparently is some kind of Irish music website or something (Low is playing a show in Ireland soon). I don’t know. The point is, Alan’s awesome and it’s always good to see him get a little cred. He also mentions Brandon Flowers in the interview. You can find it here.
Hey folks, sorry about the late podcast. I think I’ve decided to cut down the number of podcasts. This is to keep the quality of the podcast up even if my life gets crazy or busy, and also to avoid repeats of songs and artists as much as possible. Until I can do this as a day job, I have to make sure priorities are in order. Thanks everyone and keep listening!
Podcast will be updated whenever I get enough new songs to keep things fresh.
Brent Colbert is The Awful Truth. Or rather, Brent Colbert knows The Awful Truth, because it’s him. I had the pleasure of interviewing Brent about his Indie project, which will sound both familiar and dissonant to the average Indie rocker. Brent currently hails from Salt Lake City, though Linescratchers first came into contact with him through Rexburg connections, where he spent some time at BYU-I. You will soon be able to purchase his upcoming album, Object Permanence, on iTunes, though in the meantime you can hear his songs at his Myspace or on The Hills.
For those of you who are interested in seeing Nick and Shane Barnwell perform, well, you might have to wait a bit. Nick will be in Chile till October 2010, serving a mission. Before he left, however, Nick and his brother, from Bozeman, Montana, wrote music together. Shane recently contacted Linescratchers, sending several of his laid-back, organic tunes, and this was the result of the ensuing interview. You may have already heard them, they were featured in our last (July 4th) podcast.
Linescratchers has been nominated for Best New Blog of 2008 by MormonMatters.org, which is running the Niblets this year. The Niblets are an awards thing for new/good Mormon blogs.
