Robert Francis- Just had to share this again!



Robert Francis is a man with a plan. With upcoming SXSW performances opening for Band of Horses, Drive By Truckers, Broken Social Scene and tour dates with label mates Fanfarlo, you had better catch him while you can.

Just 22 years old, Robert displays a songwriting talent and musical breadth that far exceeds his young age, and has prompted National Public Radio to compare him to classic American songwriters like Townes Van Zandt and Steve Earle. After self-producing and playing nearly every instrument on his 2007 independent release One by One Robert enlisted the services of Grammy Award winning producer D. Sardy for his Atlantic debut Before Nightfall.

AE & FILTER PRESENT: HEAR TO HELP


American Eagle Outfitters, in partnership with FILTER Magazine will offer customers an exclusive compilation CD to benefit relief and recovery efforts in Haiti.

WORLD PREMIERE VIDEO - ANGUS & JULIA STONE



Another video has been release from Angus & Julia Stone. It's animated, which I'd have to say I'm not usually a big fan. I don't want to see an animated music video, I want to see that actual artist. I dunno...great song, but not loving the vid. Whateves. I still heart A&J!
