Pamela Means Song for RAINN

Pamela Means donated her song “Pollock in Pink “to our Muruch.com for RAINN benefit album. Pamela’s soft voice is juxtaposed with her fierce, bluesy acoustic guitar in this poetic narrative of domestic violence. You can hear the original track below, but Muruch remastered it for the RAINN album to sound like a new recording. You can get all 25 remastered, amazing mp3s of the album by donating $10 (or more) directly to RAINN through Muruch’s RAINN.org fundraising page.



The album also features music and poetry by Concrete Blonde’s Johnette Napolitano, American Gods/Sandman author Neil Gaiman, The Dresden Dolls’ Amanda Palmer, The Voice‘s Kat Robichaud, Midlake, Flogging Molly, Poe, The Mynabirds, Allison Crowe, Crystal Good, Kevin Kantor and many more.

Introducing Darlingside…

I’m a little in love with Boston quartet Darlingside. Beautiful four-part harmony and folk instrumentation plus their name is a literary homage (“Kill Your Darlings”/darlingcide). Darlingside’s new album, Birds Say, will be released on September 18th. You can watch a live performance of their lovely ballad “God of Loss” below.

Introducing Miner…

L.A. folk-rock band Miner have been accurately compared to The Avett Brothers. I especially like the song “Carousel” from their debut album, Into the Morning.
