DUSTdevils on the wind



A big friend of the show post tonight. DUSTdevils are getting some well deserved recognition over at WFMU's beware of the blog. I've been a long-time fan of DUSTdevils ever since I first heard Rhenyard's Grin. DUSTdevils were a big influence on Choke and it was finding all of their albums over at YoungMossTongue that largely inspired me to start Pen & Mallet. At the time I never would have guessed that would lead to an opportunity to collaborate (as aboombong) with one of my favorite musicians... but that is exactly what happened.

The WFMU piece features a nice interview, some great video's (here and here) and a link to some previously unreleased DUSTdevils tracks. I thought I would share those with you and encourage you to pop over to beware of the blog or his place and leave Michael a greeting in thanks for all the great music he's provided over the years.
