A new track from my upcoming record has leaked out unintentionally. The song is called So Bright. I was not ready to put this track out but some how it's now posted on multiple sites as well as for sale on multiple sites. I made it available for free download just now on the PL site because it has never been my intention to strictly sell any tracks off my new record. You can download it at no cost now at: www.prettylightsmusic.com/#/downloads
All the samples used in the track are from self composed one of a kind vinyl pressings. There is a short documentary to be released soon about the making of this upcoming PL album because it was a very unique and laborious process. I'm insanely excited to release the entire record but... I'd prefer to do it on my own terms:). Much love to all PL family, I hope you enjoy the track.
Where was the hope lost? How many other musicians have you seen add bass pickups to a guitar and play bass & guitar at the same time? Or have someone from the audience at shows just draw piece of paper with an album name on it from a hat and then the band plays that whole album in it's entirety? I'm actually glad their not popular because that makes their live shows that much more intimate and badass.

To continue today's awesome streak, The Sword is releasing tracks from the new album little by little to stream on their website. You just got to play a little puzzle game. It looks like three are unlocked today.
I was hoping to get some honest opinions from some of the music "critics" around here?
Okay - so I checked out both Charlie It's Alright and Driving Through Illinois with Josh Ritter. I agree - he has a very pleasant voice a la Ray LaMontagne or Sam Beam. The songwriting is there too - good imagery. I found the organ/vibes to actually distract from the rhythm of the songs and the "wall of sound" effect of the drums didn't work for me. The steel and other guitar work was nice and Charlie is a very catchy tune. Overall, I'd say I enjoyed it, it didn't blow me away, but I'd listen to more and would go see him the next time he's at a Jammin' Java or a Birchmere type place.
