Cold Water - K. Stebner's Cold Water (2011)

For those who follow us over on the facebook, you may have seen a distressing post last week. It seems the folks over at mediafire don't like to spend too much time thinking or reviewing facts when the RIAA knocks on our door, and so our account with said file sharing service has been unjustly (unjustly! we swear!) suspended. This means that, as of this writing, the 500+ recordings that we've been collecting here are in limbo. Thankfully, we have copies of our own - but we're hoping we can get things sorted out soon and get back to our usual hijinx.

In the meantime, we'd like to present this lovely tape, which we slept on until recently. Kevin Stebner is, of course, the moustachioed head of Bart Records and Stalwart Sons (as well as a pile of other projects we can't keep up with).  For this tape, he's gone country - which is a mighty fine thing indeed.

This really lives up to its name. It feels like it was recorded in the winter in the depths of a cold basement. Which is pretty much where we'll be holed up this Christmas break, re-uploading all of the gems we've been collecting for the past five and a half years.

Good thing you can get this one on bandcamp.
