Oh, so we're both posting music collabs this week, eh, Dan? You know what this means, don't you? Outreach. Community building. Other stuff! At this rate, the whole music scene is going to be into the same mojo we're into. Self-publication? Self-production? DIY ethics? Hugging? [/devbanter]

If you haven't noticed, power-pop trio Eastern Shore have been building a following in southern Arizona; producing Beatlemania-like symptoms in some fans. This is partially because of frontman Jayson Draper's silky-smooth, white-chocolate voice, partially because of his complex composition structures and revolutionary lyrics, and mostly because of his hair. Okay, okay: 90% talent, 10% hair (Which is technically the exact opposite of the Wilson ratio). Regardless, they're making waves.

A Producer's Cut is when you've recorded a song, but Jayson wanted to re-record the vocals, but you have a special place in your heart for the original vocals, so you release an early mix on your website. Very technical. Here's my favorite mix of Eastern Shore's landmark composition, Paper Shields:

Paper Shields- Producer's Cut

Lot of jokes tonight. I must be in a mood. I- got a lot of sun today. But in all seriousness: Jayson, Roland, you are innovative, evocative musicians. Your work speaks for itself.
