EXCLUSIVE NEW DOWNLOAD: Peasant - The End + Well Alright
It's hard to reconcile when a great indie act hits critical mass. Case in point: Peasant, the heartbreak moniker of one Doylestown-bred Damien DeRose. Dude's music will no doubt make you weep, lest you forget Valentine's Day looming assault on your psyche. The pain is universal. But it hurts so good--that country-colored twang, that delicate voice singing the most bright and unabashedly sincere harmonies we've heard this year. No wonder Urban Outfitters jumped on the bandwagon. If Zach Braff were still in the business of ruining music, he'd do to Peasant what he did to The Shins. Below, "The End" will make you sigh at what could have been, while "Well Alright" will have you mouthing words you don't yet know. Both excellent tracks arrive March 2 on Shady Retreat through the good folks at Paper Garden Records.
