New free music from Brad, Minus the Bear & Drive-By Truckers

Minus the Bear is gearing up to release its new album, Omni, on May 4. “My Time,” the lead single from the album, was released as a free download yesterday. You can listen to the track, which features heavy use of a Japanese Omnichord synthesizer, below and get your free download of the song by clicking here. Minus the Bear’s local tour stop supporting the album will be at this year’s Sasquatch! Music Festival, however, you can see the band prior to Memorial Day Weekend during an in-store performance at Sonic Boom Records on Record Store Day (April17). I’ll post more details (such as which Sonic Boom and the set time) as they are made available.


Brad, the Stone Gossard side project featuring the highly underrated Shawn Smith on vocals, is also releasing a new album this year. The record is titled “Best Friends?” and if you sign up for the Brad mailing listyou can get a download of “Runnin’ For Cover” off the album. I’m sure you’ll be hearing the song when Brad plays Showbox at the Market on April 17. Of course, you remember the last time Brad played at Showbox at the Market, don’t you?


Drive-By Truckers recently became a small musical obsession of mine. I listened to “Southern Rock Opera” for the first time last summer and ever since I have been fascinated by Patterson Hood and the rest of the DBTs. The band is releasing its new album “The Big To-Do” on March 16 and you can click below to download the song “Birthday Boy” from the band’s new album. You can also stream the entire record over here.
