Digital Leather mails out new album

* I will be checking my mailbox obsessively for the next week or so. Digital Leather's Infinite Sun test pressings are reportedly on the way to all the people that donated money to the band via earlier this year.  A limited-time only download code was sent to donors a few months ago. Regular edition copies of the album will also be available from Volar Records.

* Alternative country mainstays The Gourds are flying through Nebraska under the radar. They play the Pla Mor Ballroom, 6600 West O St. in Lincoln, Monday, November 14th at 8 p.m. The Austin, Tex. band has been around since the mid-90s and just released their tenth studio album Old Mad Joy in September.

* Saddle Creek Records has re-releasing three Two Gallants titles on vinyl. What the Toll Tells, The Scenery of Farewell and Two Gallants are all available on and at the Saddle Creek Shop, 721 North 14th St. To celebrate the releases, has posted a five part video series on the San Francisco-based duo, which includes interviews and live versions of songs recorded in Chicago.

* Baby Tears have joined Facebook, if only to prevent singer/guitarist Todd Von Stup from having to continually send mass texts from his phone whenever the three-piece band has a show. The new online home comes hot on the heels of the band's new vinyl-only single "Homeless Corpse", released by Rainy Road Records. The single is limited to 200 copies on regular, black vinyl and 100 copies on gold vinyl. The gold vinyl can only be bought via mail order at Both versions include an MP3 download code. The band has also made a video for the single's flip side "She Sell Eggs", which is on The video is a homemade collection of images shot while cruising Omaha and Council Bluffs after dark.

* Mark Thursday, January 26th on your calendar now. Alternative rock weirdo Evan Dando is bringing his Lemonheads through to play his seminal work, It's A Shame About Ray. The short, but sweet 1992 album will be played in its entirety at the Waiting Room Lounge, 6212 Maple St.
