    Download it at: deadcanaries.bandcamp.com/releases Hey, what the f**k is going on? First we get the coldest March in 50 years, then apparently they find traces of life on Pluto, and now we have another Dead Canaries album, only 7 months after arguably the most underrated record in human history (Bird Peach) was released? To get to the bottom of this mystery, the DG asked our finest (see also "only") roving rogue reporter (a.k.a "me") to download "For A Warmer Winter" and track down the elusive conductor of the Dead Canaries, one Mr. Jon Fink, to find out what all the fuss is about. DG: ...

    Two for the price of none. Download DEAD CANARIES GOLDEN SOUNDS and MODERN DAY CARPETBAGGER at http://cozyhomerecords.com/08/artists/dead-canaries/ for free Jon of the Atom and his travelling band of musical troubadours return like migrating free-form birds with two brand new albums - 'Golden Sounds' a year-long continuation of the upwards musical trajectory and an epically wretched record to make, and 'Modern Day Carpetbagger' apparently written and recorded over 'a long weekend reading John Wilmot'. As always I go into these recordings with my eyes closed, fully expecting the unexpected from the 'bastard child of Beck and Brian Wilson.' Continue Reading...
