Tumbleweed Wanderers: One of my new favorite bands

Check out the debut album from my new favorite band.

Last month I went to Portland's Doug Fir Lounge for a show by Australian troubadour Angus Stone. As is a usual practice of mine when I have not heard of the opening band, I did not do any research on Oakland group Tumbleweed Wanderers. When I can, I like to experience a band for the first time in concert and am often times pleasantly surprised. 

More than any time in recent memory, that outcome happened that night with Tumbleweed Wanderers. 

TW are a collective of dudes from the Bay Area, initially started by high school friends Jeremy Lyon and Zak Mandel-Romann. Today they are touring in support of their debut album So Long-- which I bought on vinyl at the showand likely winning over way more people than just myself. 

Check out the album the fellas recorded at John Vanderslice's Tiny Telephone studio in San Francisco below and sink into their soulful rock sound. (for those of you who saw Pickwick at McMenamin's earlier this year, you'll know the sound I'm talking about)
