Derek Webb – Democracy Vol 1

Before I get started… happy birthday, Frank Zappa!  Ya hozna!

OK, now on to the music news…

Derek Webb, whose Stockholm Syndrome is seriously gonna rank well in my soon-comingBest of / Favorite CDs of 2009” list, is doing something new for 2010.  He’s going to have a subscription music deal where he digitally releases cover songs each month… and subscribers get to pick the songs.  People who bought/buy a limited edition of Stockholm Syndrome over at the DW store got first crack at selections.

I already put in my votes a couple days ago… Chroma Key‘s “Colorblind” (longshot due to obscurity), Tori Amos‘ “Crucify” (that would pwn), and I think jokingly I put Opeth‘s “Blackwater Park” (even more of a longshot) – but I forget if I recanted and switched at the last minute to something else.  I’m pulling for a “Crucify” cover by Derek – I think he’d do it justice.

The cover songs will likely be a more stripped down, singer-songwriter style when compared to his 2009 record… but those are his roots and how I first got into him; so I’m stoked.  Plus… ya know, if he does Tori Amos’ “Crucify,” I’ll have his babies.
