Their Hearts Were Full of Spring...Err...Winter

I got a press release a little while ago and then a follow up email Monday regarding Their Hearts Were Full of Spring. It seems this lovely band has got themselves a bit of an ongoing project, recording season-appropriate songs for giveaway this year. You can check/get those here. I haven't gotten a good chance to listen to the covers of Fleet Foxes' "White Winter Hymnal" and Neil Young's "Winterlong," but I've got high expectations for these folks. The other part of the deal is that you can buy the limited-edition cds at their shows, but for those of us on this side of the Atlantic, the downloads will have to suffice.

I like the idea, it suits them well and also it means that there's more from THWFOS on the way. Can't complain about that. Someday it would be terrific to walk into a record store (you know what I mean) and lay hands on an LP. In the meantime, apparently they have a blog as well, so sit tight and we'll keep our fingers crossed.

The Killers review should be up sometime tomorrow and of course, TMI Top 10 Discoveries of 2008 will follow shortly after.
