video: Shane Tutmarc

Here’s that promised Shane Tutmarc video. I think I played this like 40 times in one day in April.

Tutmarc used to make music under the name Dolour, now he performs with family members (brothers? don’t remember) in Shane Tutmarc and the Traveling Mercies. KEXP had their “Hey, Lazarus!” as a song of the day a few months back and a quick Google just told me he put out his own album earlier this month…which apparently you can stream at his website. It sounds a lot more country and blues influenced than his earlier work, although I guess you could see that coming from his last Dolour album.

He also has some new, kind of awkward looking facial hair.

All the CDs and shirts are on sale, apparently. Maybe I’ll get a Traveling Mercies shirt (I already have the Dolour shirt), the artwork is cool.

Anyway, this video is fantastic, so watch it.
