Sound Of Picture Vol 2 now available FREE

Sound of Picture Vol 2 Sampler Mix

Now available for free/donation in the HUSHshop.

Hot on the heels of Vol 1, we have 20 more short instrumental tracks to accompany photographs collected for your enjoyment and/or use (under a CC BY-NC license) by Chad Crouch. For more on that, there’s this Creative Commons blog entry about Crouch’s (aka Podington Bear) Sound of Picture project.

Enable your album art window, or gander at your iPod to see the corresponding photos! For quality-conscious content creators both volumes are now also available as lossless quality downloads at this bandcamp page (however the tracks are missing their corresponding photos, so the HUSHshop is the recommended source for most users).

Keep abreast with the Sound Of Picture Project via the free podcast.

Ben Barnett & David J (Novi Split) highlights

Stopping off at Portland’s The Artistery, the trifecta of Ben Barnett (of Kind of Like Spitting), David J (of Novi Split) and Sean Bonnette (of Andrew Jackson Jihad) made for a memorable evening’s performance. All were in fine form, playing a pile of covers and trying out new material on the second night of their tour of the west. Many more clips can be found here, including a lively take on “Punk Rock Girl” and a highly recommended kitchen performance of Tom T Hall’s “Chicken Song” by David J.
