Posted by: Blake Solomon (03/22/09)
This week's Self Promotion Spotlight band is St. Philistine, a one-man band hailing from a little slice of heaven I call Dallas, Texas. If you want to be considered for the Spotlight, it's simple: just sign up for an account, post in the forum and leave the rest to us! Check out the replies for some more information on St. Philistine.

St. Philistine



First thing's first: You can download St. Philistine's record You Are A Greek Tragedy for free RIGHT HERE.

Talk about a musical house I'd like to move into, you may recognize this Dallasite's roommate, who just so happened to be one of our first Self Promo Spotlighters, The A-B Theory. The styles are similar yet different, as St. Philistine is much more acoustic guitar-based. The easy comparisons to his sound are Ben Gibbard and Kevin Devine, but there's also moments of alt-country twang ("Oak Creek") and electronica-lite ("Sad Artist"). Real talk: it's simple music by a person creating art for the right reasons. You'd be be silly to let this skip on by.

Once again, you can download it all here.

RIYL: Kevin Devine, Ben Gibbard, The A-B Theory, French Quarter

Hey thanks Blake!! I fully agree with Jesse.

And I just wanted to say that while the record is very much a solo thing, you'd be doing yourself a disservice by not seeing us live, because what I can do in the studio pales in comparison to how much the rest of the band improves these songs.

So come to one of these shows if you like the record:

3/26 Prophet Bar - Dallas, TX
4/10 - Mokah - Dallas, TX
4/20 - Rubber Gloves - Denton, TX
5/7 - J&J's Pizza - Denton, TX


But thanks for the kind words and listening.
