Soldier of Love

What happened in the last decade to make her so sad?

Posted By on Wed, Feb 17, 2010 at 12:00 AM

Rip this joint

New joint is by far the band's best effort to date

Posted By on Wed, Feb 3, 2010 at 12:00 AM

While they've been critically lauded and adored by their cult-ish fan base for the majority of the last decade, the Deadstring Brothers had been treading water for some time now.
