Your Morning Rock – June 13th, 2008 Friday, June 13, 2008

Posted by Jerkwheat in jerkwheat, Your Morning Rock.

I’ve mentioned it before, but one of the perks/nuisances of having a decently trafficked blog with a lot of music content is the frequency with which you are pitched bands that nobody cares about. I try to take the time to check them out when I get sent the link because you get the occasional gem with the junk (see our previous post on This Is Ivy League). Thankfully, we’ve once again been sent a real gem.

The Fairline Parkway are a DC band (huzzah local music!) who have a new album that just came out on The Kora Records called The Memory of Open Spaces. You just enjoyed the video for “Westward Bound”. If you are a DC local, you might be inclined to head over to The Rock and Roll Hotel on Sunday night for their record release party. You can stream a couple songs on the above linked MySpace page and they’re all very lovely little indie pop songs.

Anyhoo, I hope you enjoy the tune and take a deeper dig into this fine band.

Good stuff, I’ll have to check out some more. Kind of reminds me of Joseph Arthur.

One of the songs on the MySpace gave me a bit of a Postal Service vibe.

I thought it was a bit Yornish. Good though.

Yornish, eh? Man, what happened to Pete – I haven’t seen nor heard him since Nightcrawler came out. I think we saw him open for Guster in summer ’06, but nary a peep since. I rather enjoyed the Yorn.
