The things you find via random Internet searches. Here's a blog based in Canada (Calgary, Alberta, more specifically) raving about our own Theodore
. In a very kind post
, the author says he's "quite taken with them at this point. They have that hazy, slide guitar
country ballad feel. This stuff is always a killer for me as I just
can't resist it. It makes me want to have heartache just to just
stumble over and crawl inside the atmosphere it emanates." As an added bonus, he links to a fantastic cover of Damien Jurado
's "Fuel," as performed by Theodore singer Justin Kinkel-Schuster. Go download the MP3.
Those of us in St. Louis, of course, are lucky enough to see Theodore perform all the time. Check out this slideshow of the band and the Pat Sajak Assassins
, which was taken Friday night at the Tap Room. Click on the photo of Kinkel-Schuster below to see the entire set.
