Okay, I’ve already posted today but this is so freakin’ cool I had to share it
with all of you . . .
Stewart Lupton is the lead singer of The Child Ballads, and I think he also used to be in a band called Jonathan Fire Eater that I know nothing about. Apparently, they were big, indie, and somehow connected to The Walkmen. I read that Lupton got dropped due to a drug problem or something. Seems like an odd reason to dump a rock guy, but whatever.
Their new stuff is kinda country, kinda Rolling-Stonesy. And I’m totally digging this cut:
