    Good evening guys.

    You did an MM short with us a while back for our debut free ep “Soundtracks.” We’ve just released a new EP “Trudy Superstar” on our bandcamp. If you guys could have a listen again and give it a shout that would be awesome.

    Thank you for your time and consideration.

    Tim from My Pet Monster.

    Digging this site – found you looking for the artist of the FJMisty album cover. Glad you have that as a top 2012 pick.

    Just discovered your blog whilst searching for some recent Handsome Family news. I’m rediscovering my love for alt-country and this site is just what I need. Thanks.
