Feel Bad For You Mixtape

Check us out in good company on January's "Feel Bad For You" mixtape over at This Is American Music. They featured a song from our hard-to-find, out-of-print WIGG ep that was made for attendees of last year's Wigginstock festival in Wiggins, Mississippi.

Single: "Last Motel Room" b/w "Unknown Folk Artist"

After getting warmed up with a couple of covers (see previous posts to download those), I'm happy to offer the debut Flint Hill Specials release. Download the songs here, and come see us play the songs live at South By Southwest - we're playing the This Is American Music day party at Mean Eyed Cat at 1:00pm on Wednesday, March 14. These songs were recorded by myself in the basement, through the wonders of multi-track recording, but the SXSW show will be a full band affair, including one of my old National Grain conspirators. Here are the songs for download:
