...Soil & The Sun...

This is a band that I came across a while ago and really enjoy. Doug may remember this song from the "Summer Camp" mix I made last June. This past week, I met a great guy, Ted, that is in town interning for a few months and lives in community with some of these guys when he's back in Michigan. He sent me this video, and I thought that I would share it with you guys. I hope to have them out our way to play a show, sometime in the future. Please, check out their bandcamp site to stream their albums and purchase their music at a very reasonable price.

Rumor has it that they're going to be opening up for Portugal the Man. If you've only got a few minutes, check out the video above which is an excerpt from a live studio interview. If you've got some time to spare, make sure to check out the session in its fulness at Audiotree Live.

  1. yes! love it. check out this non-studio live version ( - it's missing the stings & second drummer & a few of the other bells & whistles, but the raw energy makes it better than this take. i'd love to see these guys play - or join their band maybe - they seem pretty expansive. love the drummer with the dreads - he's so chill & excellent & i love the personal touches to his kit. his relaxed, focused posture reminds me of paul. dig it very muchly. d
