Unrelated Sidenote: Over the Rhine‘s The Long Surrender comes out today.  It’s a fantastic Americana, singer-songwriter, sultry pop album.  Check it out (click album cover to the right for sound samples)… you can even download a song for free (for a limited time).

Over the Rhine on Good Day LA (KTTV) on 11/11

12th Nov 10 (Fri) Leave a comment

So, within one week, I’ll get to see Over the Rhine two times… it’s been since Sept 2007 since I’ve gotten a chance to see them.  Yesterday, they stopped by Los Angeles’ KTTV (a Fox affiliate), chatted and sang “The King Knows How” on Good Day LA.  Photos posted to Facebook by a fellow Orchard Apple/friend, Bill Ivester.  Video link after some of Bill’s shots…

Three days until their Eugene show… woot! Oh, and for pre-orderers, the download links for The Long Surrender should be in your inbox from the band with the super secret URL and password.  If you miss it, the album will be out on 1/11/11.

Over the Rhine – The Long Surrender (virtual listening party)

7th Oct 10 (Thu) Leave a comment

So, Cincinnati folk-duo Over the Rhine has a new album coming out… it’s called The Long Surrender, and it comes out 1/11/11.  If you helped out with the pre-order campaign (mentioned back here and here), they are having a very special internet streaming listening party from Friday, October 8th at 6pm (PST) through Sunday, October 10th at 6pm (PST).

I’d post the link to the streaming-goodness… but I don’t want to get fired as a fan… again.

Look for a mini-review from me sometime next week.

Over the Rhine’s The Long Surrender (due 1/11/11)

THE RECORD WE COULDN’T IMAGINE IN ADVANCE:

Our immense thanks to all of you who helped make the new Over the Rhine record a reality. It’s been christened THE LONG SURRENDER and is currently being mastered.
Tentative release date: 1.11.11.

All those who contributed will receive THE LONG SURRENDER well before the official release date, with extras. Look for a complete (long, rambling) update letter next week with much more, but suffice it to say, for now, our experience with producer Joe Henry and his cast of conjurers was nothing short of incredible.

Can’t wait for you to take the ride/hear for yourself.

Perfect release date, if you ask me!
