REM, Belle and Sebastian & more join forces to become… TIRED PONY

I’m not entirely sure how I missed this moment in musical history when Gary Lightbody (of middle of the road rock band Snow Patrol fame), Richard Colburn (drummer in Belle & Sebastian) and Peter Buck (REM guitarist) came together to create some good old fashioned Americana for the world to endure enjoy. But sadly I did, and you more than likely did too.

They’ve decided to make you go all the way over to their homepage to listen to their song rather than embedding it so people can actually use it (grumble grumble) so if you’re interested in the outcome of this Frankensteins monster of you can go here (clue: meh) or if you think you’ve got the stamina you can wait until the 12th of July to hear the entire album. Exciting huh?
