One of the best bands most of you never heard (which is why I speak of them in the past tense) was a band called The Normals, whose last two albums remain in pretty heavy rotation in my world despite being several years old. Andrew Osenga was the lead singer of that crew, and he’s turned out a few solo projects since the demise of the band. His latest is forthcoming, and he’s giving away one of the songs for free downloading. Andrew is an independent artist, meaning both that he is free from the constraints of a record company telling him what kind of songs to write and record and that he does not have the benefit of someone else’s money and manpower to produce, market, and distribute his songs. Check this one out, and if you like what you hear, buy the album. Supporting good musicians who write good songs is a good thing to do.
You can also stream a few other songs from the album here, here, and here.
