Samamidon

Like Doveman, the NYC outfit he sometimes performs with, Samamidon creates a potent brand of whisper-folk that straddles the fine line between devastatingly sad, and beautiful. His latest album, All is Well, drops today via the Bedroom Community label – see the track “Saro,” below, and be sure to listen to Samamidon’s brilliant deconstruction of Tears For Fears “Head Over Heels” off his 2007 LP But This Chicken Proved Falsehearted.

Elsewhere: Head over to the music blog captain obvious, who recently interviewed Samamidon in preparation for the new LP.

  1. I did a feature on the covers of Sam Amidon over at Cover Lay Down a few months ago in anticipation of this release, too…come by for a few more Samamidon tracks, plus a bit more history on the Amidon family.

  2. The most interesting album of 2008 so far.

  3. thanks for the link to the interview I did with Sam.

    this guy is supremely talented and I’m glad people are taking notice.

  4. Whoa, I got that last album in the mail a ways back and totally didn’t connect it to the new one. Weird.
