I received a note from John Praw about Softly, Dear. It felt like it was urgent and I needed to respond to it. Therefore, I listened through the whole thing and found out that I liked it very much. In collaboration with his record label Mine All Mine, situated in Wisconsin. Since they got their album “Portico” released recently on this particular label, we decided it would be great to offer you a free download of one track. Since they’re all available for streaming on Bandcamp, you get to download the track “Know My Name” for free. You can also stream it if you like to. I chose this track because it is in the darker vein, being this album, as I’m more attuned with the darker stuff now when it’s beginning to turn into Autumn. Actually, the sampling on the track reminds me far too much about industrial then it does remind me about indie rock. It is also their debut, which makes me feel even more honored to be listening to it, yet offering you something in return. The ballad-like track is smooth as silken, but at the same time nostalgic as nobody in their right mind would be. Soothingly taking us back throughout their lyrical venture, making the whole ordeal an adventure for those that prefer indie rock over everything else. This was actually self-released by their band on CD at first, which was so successful that it almost sold out immediately, but now they’ve gotten released by Mine All Mine on cassette and as a digital download. The band is compromised of: Tyler Hart, Josh Frederick, Alex Adkinson, Ben Possi and Addie Strei. So, if you like this, grab a limited cassette for only five dollars. Stream the track itself and download it here down below, or stream the whole album. It’s your choice.
