Strand of Oaks give away first two albums and new song “Maureen’s”

MP3: Strand of Oaks – Maureen’s

Strand of Oaks is Timothy Showalter, and in 2010 he released my favorite album of that year, Pope Killdragon. You can now download it, along with debut Leave Ruin, for free at Strand of Oaks’ Bandcamp.

Another freebie, “Maureen’s,” is the first taste of Showalter’s coming album, Dark Shores. It’s more guitar-based than I anticipated, especially after hearing the synth-drenched Shaking Through collaboration “Spacestations,” but it’s no less affecting, and I’m eagerly anticipating the rest of the new record.
