    New Artist Alert: Southside American, "Angel of the Night" - Get to know 'em via this song!

    ARTISTdirect discovered this rad new act Southside American, which is the brainchild of Benjamin Sweet, and we wanted to share the song "Angel of the Night." It's got a lived-in vibe, with the harmonicas, and it reminds us of rootsy American music. Think Bruce Springsteen or Lucero...sort of!

    The song is from the new EP In Our Keystone State, out now. [iTunes link]

    "The idea for 'Angel' came to me one night when I was walking through the second floor of my house around dusk. I looked up to see a bunch of black and white photographs of various family members, going back four generations. I suppose the song is a mediation on the fact that each one of us writing just one chapter of a much larger story, and that our time is finite and precious," said Sweet.



    New music first...always at ARTISTdirect.
