Daytrotter Bookery

Daytrotter.com is a wonderful website that invites bands to record live songs for us to download. They also post drawings of all the bands that play...





But what I really wanted to talk about was the Daytrotter Bookery. This is where musicians read something from a book - maybe a short story, a section of a long story, maybe a poem. Its amazing! I've heard three really good ones - The Spinto band read "Gremlins 2 - The New Batch" accompanied by piano and organ, Okkervil River read a beautiful short story by Russian writer Tatyana Tolstaya, and Raveonettes read "The Little Girl With The Sulphursticks" which will make you cry into your cocoa.
