Yes, it's a repost from the Zac Crain for Mayor MySpace, BUT this double CD is worth noting because it's so amazingly great. There aren't adjectives enough to gush about it. When we can buy it, I'll link to it again, but for right now, we just have to chomp at the bit and wait.


ZfM Benefit CD coming soon! Plus: December happenings

With any luck, we'll have the Zac Crain for Mayor benefit CD in stores and online by the end of the month. It will truly be a win-win for all involved -- you get 32 great tracks for a reasonable price; I get some financial support as I take on a heaping handful of candidates with pockets deeper than Barry White's voice.

To whet your appetite, here is the approximate track list. Might be a mistake or two as far as the sequence.

Disc 1
1. Fishboy, "The Ballad of Zac Crain"
2. The Crash That Took Me, "Julianne" (this is Dylan Silvers and Beau Wagener from [DARYL] plus others.)
3. Philip E. Karnats, "When the Stereo Broke Its Back"
4. Pleasant Grove, "Luzern"
5. Centro-matic, "Atlanta"
6. The Paper Chase, "Oh! The Horror! The Horror!"
7. Pikahsso, "God for a Day"
8. Shanghai 5, "Love is a Racket"
9. Here, In Arms, "Darling"
10. Smile Smile, "Taking its Toll"
11. Sorta, "Grown Man"
12. I Love Math, "These Paper Walls"
13. The Dutch Treats, "My Bionic Hand"
14. Dove Hunter, "What Turns Inside"
15. Red Monroe, "Our Love"
16. Tim DeLaughter, "Winter Wonder Slumber" (aka "of the Polyphonic Spree")

Disc 2
1. Shibboleth, "Pokky Pokky"
2. Ben Kweller, "Magic"
3. American Werewolf Academy, "Summer Ship"
4. Rhett Miller, "She Loves the Sunset"
5. Voot Cha Index, "Japan"
6. J.D. Whittenburg, "The Secrets That I Keep"
7. Radiant*, "That Girl"
8. Salim Nourallah, "It's My Dream"
9. Hydroponic Sound System, "Lone Star Uprising"
10. John Dufilho with Robert Schneider (of Apples in Stereo), "I'm Jinxed"
11. Saboteur, "Bitchin' Into Oblivion"
12. Pilotdrift, " know the world is wonderful" (ooooo ... new Pilotdrift!)
13. Olospo, "You Deserve Better"
14. Rose County Fair, "Midnight on the M Streets"
15. Hardin Sweaty and the Ready to Go, "The Fall"
16. Dave Little, "Zac Crain Ain't No Laura Miller"

We're hoping to have them ready for the benefit gig at Club Dada on December 30, a bill that features Sorta, The Crash That Took Me, an acoustic set from The Paper Chase, and Hardin Sweaty and the Ready to Go. Be on the lookout for an advance preview of selected tracks from the disc in the extremely near future. (this is a FUN bill. Forget New Years Eve - go to this!)

For more December happenings, go here. And, as always, remember to vote on May 12, 2007.
