I think Laura Gibson is awesome.

So I normally don't do posts that aren't show related but, what the hell, I saw something in my email that excited me so I am going to share. Laura Gibson, part of the cream of the crop in a town full of folksy music folk, as you probably know is about to drop her new album Beasts of Seasons on Hush Records. I have seen Laura play a couple times in the last few months and really enjoy the new material. any way, here is some cool news. You can legally download a cut off the album right now. It is called Spirited. The only problem is that I am at "work" and do not have speakers on the computer (probably a good thing n terms of me keeping my job). The other exciting Laura Gibson thing is that starting today, Laura will be debuting a new song every day unit February 16th. At that time, according to the Hush website, there will be a special event. Hmmmm...I tend to enjoy special events.

Also speaking of Ms. Gibson, she is about to start her tour with Juana Molina. It is a pretty cool pairing. The Portland date is February 11th at Lola's Room. That's next Wednesday, so look forward to me writing about that show next week.


p.s. Laura one the nicest people around.

So I just listened to the song. It sounds great. I also just realized that you can't actually download the song from the link I posted, but the guys at local cut posted it as their cut of the day
