IR Orlando #21
The forecast for episode 21 is slightly mellow for the most part with a touchy of twanginess…
1. Food Will Win The War | Amassed Complications
Their CD, “Dark Mono 3,” is available for purchase at their MySpace page.
Food Will Win the War is based in New York City but is fronted by ex-Central Floridian Rob Ward.
2. The Sugar Oaks | Los Rebeldes
As deeply rooted in the Florida soil as their namesake, The Sugar Oaks’ 5-song EP, “Red Grapes in the City,” is available now on iTunes, Rhapsody, Napster, Sony Connect, and Digstation.
3. Terri Binion | Gayleanne (from the 2002 album “Fool” on Richter Records)
Terri has been writing and performing music for many years. You can often catch Terri Binion and the Bible Belt Orphans performing in the Orlando area. She also composed the score for the recent documentary “When Pigs Fly,” which has been making a big splash on the film festival circuit. High demand for the film here in Orlando resulted in a special encore screening and it was the buzz of The Florida Film Festival last spring. More on the film here.
From her MySpace page:
“‘Gayleanne': Featuring Lucinda Williams, this is the song about a woman I met in Nashville married to an overbearing soul and so very tied to her dream of reaching stardom in a city brimming over with everyone else’s songs.”
BUY: Amazon, iTunes.
4. Go Van Gogh | The Clay We Mold Is New
This Panama City-based solo artist states on his MySpace bio that The Smashing Pumpkins, one of my all-time favorites, made him want to play music.
