MUSIC: The Tunnel
Recently caught a set by a new local (SF) band called The Tunnel at the most interesting Eagle Tavern. This two-person set-up (Jeff Wagner and Patrick Crawford) played an electric set in what was apparently their first show. Their sound immediately made connections to the work of Nick Drake, with lurching dark powerful tracks. Although it's a minimalist set-up, the sound is anything but. Here are some tracks.
::: The Tunnel - Drop Dead Delilah [highly rec'd]
::: The Tunnel - Nicely Done
::: The Tunnel - Shifty Shambles
These are the first three songs off their new EP. If you want a copy of the whole thing, just go on over to their website and email them to get one for yourself.
