Today the brilliant Timothy Showalter aka Strand Of Oaks releases new album Dark Shores. To celebrate that fact, he has also made previous album Pope Killdragon available for free download in its entirety via Noisetrade.
This is what is says on the Noisetrade page about Pope Killdragon: “In Strand Of Oaks songs, lovers get divorced, murder John Belushi’s drug dealer, go bowling with mythical giants, and watch their youth slip away and commune with John F. Kennedy’s illegitimate son. Obviously, Showalter has allowed himself many liberties with what constitutes the truth, and his commingling of fact and fiction, of humor and heartbreak simultaneously distinguishes him from the bearded, acoustic-toting singer-songwriters he’s so easily compared to: immerse yourself in a Strand Of Oaks record and confessionals turn into metaphor, autobiography transferred into tall tales.”
