The best online cd store for alt-country, americana and plain old rock `n roll is Miles Of Music. So who would you expect to be at the top of their sales chart these last few months? Tom Waits, Sufjan Stevens, Marah, etc, etc. But no it’s been a little band from Canada called Loomer. I’ve written about Loomer’s debut record here (links to mp3′s still all work).
Songs Of The Wild West Island is the new record. On it is a beautiful duet with fellow Canadian Sarah Harmer. Sarah is the voice of the angel in “Only Lovers”. It’s a potent example of what a great songwriter can do with a few descriptive verses and a simple chorus. To hear more from Loomer and to support an independent online music store buy their new record from Miles Of Music here now.
