MP3 premiere: Shane Sweeney – “When I am Empty”

MP3: Shane Sweeney – “When I am Empty”

Donewaiting has been a big supporter of Two Cow Garage since forever. The guys even played DW’s 6-year anniversary show. For those who share our 2Cow enthusiasm, we’ve got the premiere of “When I am Empty,” the second track off Two Cow Garage bassist Shane Sweeney’s debut album, The Finding Time, out next week on Last Chance Records (Little Rock, Ark.). Like his bandmate Micah Schnabel, Sweeney went the minimalist route for his first solo record — just acoustic guitar, creaky chairs and Sweeney’s baritone thumping the bedroom walls. It’s what people talk about when they talk about an “intimate record.”

Shane Sweeney’s Columbus release show is Friday at the Rumba Cafe (10pm, $6) with Todd May (Lilybandits, Mooncussers), Jeff Fernengel (Tree of Snakes) and Nate Linek (The Proms, Raise the Alarm).

The Finding Time is available digitally on iTunes, Amazon and Last Chance Records’ website, where you can also pre-order clear or blue vinyl (includes digital download).
