If you’ve read this blog from the beginning (sometime in 2004) you know of my love for the SF band Built Like Alaska. I’ll follow them anywhere, whether they’re into noisy ephemeral rock (like Mercury Rev) or folksy, earth-mother jams I’m a 100% behind this band. It’s been three years since 2004′s Future Farmer release Autumnland and the band is looking to self release a 2 disc set sometime mid-winter. They’re also entertaining offers from indie labels. Since I’m pretty sure Blitzen Trapper’s been signed up, I’d go as far as to say they’re one of the best unsigned bands in America.
This is a demo of a new song. Who knows what form it’ll take on disc, but for now I’m loving the high-pitched, Neil Youngish vocals and acoustic instrumentation.
