As if everyone hadn't heard about 1,500 different variations of Mazzy Star's "Fade into You," I write today to bring another one to you.

This time it's a DUDE singer. A CANADIAN dude singer. And it's good.

Barzin has been around awhile and has released My Life in Rooms in different countries. The US release, however, has yet to come to pass. It will, though, on the UK's Monotreme label. Oh, you mark my words--it will. Sometime this fall, even, although the date has not yet been confirmed.

He opens for Damien Jurado in Toronto October 3rd before setting off for a European tour. Who knows when we'll see him in the US. Maybe after all 1,000,000 of our readers run out and buy his record.

Back to the record--it's a supremely slow, folky venture. Great Lake Swimmer's Tony Dekker contributes to the songwriting, if that tells you anything. Think Mazzy Star, think Trespassers William. Or just listen; you'll love.

Past All Concerns, not on the new record.
Let's go Driving, on the new record.

10/22/06 New York, NY Knitting Factory
11/11/06 Brugge, Belgium Cactus Club
