Mikal Cronin has been selling out his shows across the country, and stopping in at a few radio stations along the way! KEXP Seattle has archived a set featuring four songs from the highly-acclaimed MCII! Stream the session online now, and check out some photos from Mikal’s live set at the Tractor Tavern here.
Seems like just yesterday we offered prizes to independent record shops nationwide to create displays for A Very She & Him Christmas. For Volume 3, we asked the same and were (again!) amazed and impressed by the results.
We saw a lot of excellent displays; it was a challenge to pick just four winners. A BIG thank you to all who entered and congratulations to our grand prize winner, Sonic Boom in Seattle, WA! Runners up include Everyday Music in Seattle, WA, Omega Music in Dayton, OH, and Waiting Room Records in Normal, IL.
She & Him – Volume 3 is available on CD and LP at your local independent retailer now.
“Chained to Love” b/w “Ain’t That The Way” is now available for purchase at iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, Rdio and finer digital retailers. A 12-inch vinyl double-A side single will be released July 23, but you can pre-order it now in the Merge store.
Mount Moriah performed a live session while in Austin at SXSW filmed in partnership with Rdio and Yours Truly. Hear the four-song set here.
