They used to charge a head tax

Before I take off tomorrow, I thought I'd leave you with what will surely be the next big thing in the indie music/blogging world. The Prayers and Tears of Arthur Digby Sellers is basically the work of one man, Perry Wright, and thus is often compared to that other one man show, Bright Eyes (despite sounding nothing like each other). But of course neither one is the sole work of an individual, and Wright calls on a number of friends to help round out his eclectic sound. A nice bio can be found in the Pitchfork Review for his latest album, The Mother of Love Emulates the Shapes of Cynthia. Although as with all Pitchfork reviews it's impossible to tell why the album rates a 7.5 and not a 9.5, or a 6.5 for that matter.

If you're interested you can download a shwack of mp3s here.

I suggest Concerning Lessons Learned from the Aliens, and An Unexpected Song.
