(T)anytown is another example of a band from Europe playing heartland country folk. Their new record, East Of Everything, is out on Corazong Records in October. I’ve written about many of these bands. I like how the Europeans add just that slight hint of gothic angst to American rock.
P.S. I just solidified the next Songs:Illinois house concert and it’s a doozy. I’m glad to present the Fort Worth based americana melting pot of a group known as The Theater Fire in my living room on Oct. 16. They’re passing thru Chicago on their way to Brooklyn to play at the wedding of a guy from the band O’Death. How cool is that? Their new record is due out in December and is called Matter and Light. It’s already getting great reviews on the blogs (here and here). I’m a huge fanboy of these guys and can’t wait to hear their sonic brew in person. Hope you can make it too.

Here’s two from the new record.
