Sam Champion - WOXY Lounge Act

They just started playing. Tune in. Saving this spot for thoughts.

Update: mp3 is now available - Download MP3 (27:00)

They played a set of all new songs. At times they sounded a little bit like The Shins, but they still definitely have their Southern swagger. The last two songs were very organ heavy. I gotta get my hands on this new album. Via WOXY:

Sam Champion
Performed June 13, 2007

On their way down to play at Bonnaroo, the guys swung by for their third Lounge Act session. With recording of their second album ("Heavenly Bender") completed, Sam Champion are looking for the right label to release it.

This session features five brand new tracks, all of which will be featured on the new album. At least one of the songs here ("Lorraine") was performed live for the very first time during this set.

Track Listing:
Like A Secret
Heavenly Bender

Dead Moon Dimension

Crap, missed it. Wanted to hear the new songs. Guess I'll have to wait for the archive to go up.
