New from the Broken West: "Auctioneer"

I just made myself a brand spankin' new mix CD last night for a roadtrip and I keep finding myself throwing Broken West tracks on every mix I make lately. Now I have new fodder:

Aquarium Drunkard posted an exclusive new track this morning from L.A.'s Broken West, who released one of my favorite albums of 2007.

I had never heard of them until this morning...and I was in awe. Great stuff, I'm definitely going to have to get their CDs.

If I only purchased music based on your reviews, I'd have more than I could possibly enjoy. I started streaming the new Broken West disc and by song three I had pre-ordered it. Thanks, Heather!
