Can you believe it? This is my 49th episode. Next week I will take a break to prepare for my 50th show. Please submit suggestions in the comments section for this post.
It seems funny to me that The Billions and Joe Christmas have arisen in conversation several times with me this week. (Of course, I know people come to me when they have questions about any band because they assume I’ll know the answer.) Nonetheless, these are two unfortunately obscure bands that rarely arise in casual conversation. It was too coincidental to ignore, so I had to play them this week. Enjoy.
- “Love Is Real” – Sandro Perri (Tiny Mirrors/Constellation/2007)
- “Every Word Was Split in Two” – J. Tillman (J. Tillman/independent/2004)
- “Someday You’ll Regret” – The Billions (demos/independent/2004ish)
- “I’ll Bet You Do” – Joe Christmas (North to the Future/Tooth and Nail/1995)
