Travelin’ round in a cruel indieworld: Paleo

Who? Paleo aka David Andrew Strackany

What? 365 songs in a year’s time, with a great mind of honesty

Sounds Like? A mixture of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Bob Dylan & other indie-fucking-greatness like Ezra Furman & the Harpoons, Frog Eyes (acoustic version), The Robot Ate Me, Peter and the wolf, ..

Paleo was a man with a plan. On the 16th April 2006 he started with his 365 days project. While touring in the US, he forced himself to record a song EACH day, with at the end of each week a song called Sunday Prayer (which according to his website, he still is recording eveyr week).

The best part? All these songs are available to download for free. You can also order them on a mp3-cd (like I did, really nice card you get with it by the way, and a sampler of some songs). I must admit that i haven’t listened to nearly a 10th of all the songs, just because it’s so much. But every time i hear some songs, i really get all psyched by the high quality.

Before this project, Paleo also released an amazing album called Misery, Missouri which is out of print. If i’d be a record lable, i’d rerelease it immediately, but unfortunately i’m not. I eventually found it on Soulseek or Torrents, and it’s really worth downloading. More produced, with amazingly good songs. The song Ninety Two is of this album. The other links are from his 365 Days project. Can’t Wait to hear another of his studio albums. By the way, he is now member of These United States, an amazing indie folk band. Check Them out! (or wait for my 2008-list? ;-) )
