Time to recap


New Joseph Arthur - Diamond Ring

Just got the news that another ENS favorite, Joseph Arthur will be releasing the second full length album on his own label, Lonely Astronaut on April 17th. The album will be titled, "Let's Just Be" and is the 6th album from Arthur. Announced along with it are a string of tour dates that include our fair city of Cincinnati. (see below) He will be back at the 20th Century Theatre, the site of this very interesting evening last year.

You can go ahead and pre-order "Let's Just Be" on Joseph's website. They have 2 editions of the album for sale, one being limited special edition - which will originally be only available via his website and at his shows.I also have a new song off the album to share with you, called Diamond Ring.


Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin - Half Awake

It's a compare and contrast game today here on ENS. The boys outta Springfield, Missouri that thought up their name trotting SSLYBYthrough a suburban mall years ago, and had the courage to keep it, are back with a new song. The tune, titled, "Half Awake, (Deb)", is an excellent, but different sound for the boys, and as the Gum already mentioned, sounds like it could have easily come from a Pinback record.

I thought I'd grab that song for you, and set it up against an early Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin track, from their split release via Catbird Records. The song is "Lower the Gas Prices, Howard Johnson" and is aptly titled given the petrol hike the U.S. continues to see this time of year. Enjoy a brand new and a not so new from the boys in SSLYBY.
