Meet The Acorn::

The Acorn recently came through Dallas on tour with Calexico. I didn't get out to the show and now I'm KICKING, physically KICKING myself. Not because I missed Calexico (though I'm sure they were great), but because I missed these guys. I'll be playing this song on Dallas Does Indie Episode #117 next week, but I just had to give you a taste now. They recently released an EP called Tin Fist and the song below is from their album Glory Hope Mountain, both are excellent.

MP3:: The Acorn - Crooked Legs

Thanks Thom Yorke - Free MP3

So last week Thom Yorke decided to celebrate the presidential election by putting up on the Radiohead site a free download of a remixed version of Harrowdown. Regardless of your political preference, you cannot deny that free stuff is awesome (btw - I really like the concept of retail and restaurants giving away free stuff on election day).

Meet French Miami::

Loosely speaking, French Miami is a rock band. Using rock music as a starting point, French Miami use its structures as the glue holding together more abstract musical ideas: dizzying, jagged guitar riffs anchored around pulsing synths, harmonized finger-tapping accenting tightly wound grooves, precise stop-start timing. And although part of a lineage of a number of great bands from the Touch and Go/Southern golden era, Jason Heiselmann's melodic, memorable vocals weave the bands more technical ideas into a unique realm which may too gritty for pop, yet too hooky not to be.

Since forming in 2006, French Miami has ascended up the San Francisco totem pole earning themselves a reputation for as a local favorite with their raucous live performances. As a trio, French Miami is busy on stage swapping roles. The lack of a bassist not very noticeable by just listening as their smart guitar interplay and synth work give the band plenty of low end. Singer Jason Heiselmann seamlessly eases between baritone guitar, drums, keyboards, and tackling vocals, while multi-instumentalist Roland Curtis plays double duty as well on guitar and synths. Drummer Chris Crawford stays locked on the drums, his signature BOOM! creating the backbone of their sound. For French Miami, it's not making up for not having enough hands for a bass, it's about pushing the limits of what a three-piece group can play and sound like; without set limits onstage, they're a band that sound more expansive than any "power trio" ever could be.

MP3:: French Miami - Science Fiction

Their stellar self-titled debut will be available in stores 11.18.2008 as a self-release and digitally through Dinner Party Recordings.
