Scott Thompson and Brian Barthelmes of Tallahassee. Their brand new album Old Ways has been one of my highest anticipated albums of the year (their previous album Jealous Hands ranked in The Sound & The Furry’s Favorite Albums of 2011) and it officially drops NEXT TUESDAY (5/7)! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Check out one of my favorite tracks from Old Ways "Minor Blues IV" below:
Brian Barthelmes of Tallahassee. Jealous Hands is out now - it ranked #13 on The Sound and The Furry’s Favorite albums of 2011 and the track “Heaven Ain’t For Me” was featured on the latest S&F mix New Drinks!
Don’t miss their holiday gift (belated…my fault!) - FREE DOWNLOAD of their fantastic cover of Loudon Wainwright’s “Swimming Song” (download HERE)!
In anticipation of The Sound and the Furry's Favorite Albums of 2011 list (coming soon!) I present to you my annual end-of-the-year mix of some of the stand-out tracks of the year.

I got the chance to hang out with these guys at their show in DC back in July. Not only was it a rockin’ good time, but I swear they’re the most genuine folks I’ve come across in the music biz in a long time. We talked about beards. A lot.
Brian Barthelmes of Tallahassee. Their latest album Jealous Hands is out now! The Sound and The Furry is a big fan of this band - who is also perhaps the only band to have their own exclusive Maple Beard Comb on their merch table, which makes them officially bad-ass.
