HHT ThumbIt's yr Bloodshot digest for June 2!

  • That's right, kids, the highly anticipated sophomore album from HA HA TONKA is on PRE-SALE! When you pre-order Novel Sounds of the Nouveau South, we'll throw in a couple of goods -- including a full-color tour poster and a pair of adorable Ha Ha Tonka friendship buttons (one says, "Ha Ha," the other says, "Tonka" -- share one w/ a buddy!). Go HERE to buy now!
  • Justin Townes Earle just wrapped up a West Coast tour, and photographer Joshua Black Wilkins (JBW is the man behind the art on JTE's past two albums) joined him for the journey, photographing their stops down the California coast.
  • In more JTE news, NPR has archived Justin's session with the venerable radio program World Cafe. Justin plays this weekend in Chicago at the first Metronome Festival -- he and Cory hit the stage at 8pm on Sunday.
  • And finally, Perfect Sound Forever features the Dex Romweber Duo, who are on tour now w/ the Detroit Cobras.

Ciao fer now! BSHQ!
