Green Room Sessions: Darling

At long last, the Green Room Sessions interview and live acoustic session with Chicago Americana/experimental trio Darling sees the light of day...or something like that. It was taped Tuesday, August 24, 2010, and today is a special day for the band, as their debut full-length, Lights That Last Forever also saw its official release today. You can pick up the album in CD or cream-colored vinyl/digipak from the Cardboard Sangria Records website, or at fine local music retailers. Special thanks to band members Jeff Schneider, Don Ogilvie, and Nick Voss for taping the interview. Be sure to mark your calendar for their album listening party/DJ night this Thursday at The Burlington.

Teaser: Green Room Sessions: Darling

So here's what happened. The guys from Darling were awesome enough to tape an in-depth interview and live music session last month, but I came down with an evil superbug cough that drains me of my life force and haven't finished the edit yet! However. They're playing tomorrow night (Thursday, September 16th) at The Hideout to celebrate the release of their first full-length album, Lights That Last Forever (out on Cardboard Sangria Records September 28), and I wanted to give all y'all a taste of what's in store at the show and on the podcast. Seriously, it's a good album, they are a fun and talented bunch of guys, and you should listen to their music now. Which is where the online player below comes in. And stop back soon for the full interview where they talk about music, life, and why Darling Must Drum. :)

Check out "Bad Dream," one of the live acoustic tracks from their Green Room Sessions interview HERE.
