What we love so much about Frank Turner’s interpretation of “Keira” is you can almost imagine a quiet Tony Sly penning this lullaby for his daughter. It makes us reflect and most of all, it makes us long for Tony. While many in the music community gave Tony Sly nods for his lyrics, they were occasionally muffled by the high energy of NUFAN’s music. Frank’s take (along with many others on the comp) opens a new door to see and really hear just how introspective his songs were. Head to Big Cheese to listen to “Keria” and if you missed the Alkaline Trio’s “Straight from the Jacket” you can check that out here.
We are very sad to report the passing of Bad Astronaut’s drummer, Erik Herzog, an exceptionally talented musician and lifelong member of the Santa Barbara music scene. Our deepest condolences to Erik’s family and to our friends in Bad Astronaut: Joey, Marko, Todd, Angus, and Thom.
