MP3: Tristen Daytrotter Session

Nashville singer Tristen brought her country-tinged pop to Soda Bar on Sunday for a show presented by Owl and Bear. Her terrific debut album, Charlatans at the Golden Gate, is out now via American Myth Recordings, and don’t be surprised to see it on our Best of 2011 list.

San Diego’s Owl Eyes opened with a set of girl-powered garage rock that energized the crowd. You can download their EP, O RLY?, for a mere four dollars at CD Baby.

In recent months, both bands have been kind enough to provide us with lists of their influences, which you can read here and here. Check out photos of Tristen and Owl Eyes in action below. Continue reading…

Poetic Memory: Tristen (List)

Pop debutante Tristen will play the Soda Bar this Sunday, January 30, and all of us at Owl and Bear are very, very excited. The Nashville resident’s debut album, Charlatans at the Garden Gate, has been in constant rotation at the O&B offices lately, and all that listening has only increased our admiration for her silky vocals and whip-smart songwriting.

So naturally, we can’t wait to hear instant classics like “Eager For Your Love” (MP3) and “Baby Drugs” (MP3) live, and we want you to be there with us.

As if creating a terrific album like Charlatans at the Garden Gate wasn’t enough, Tristen was also kind enough to share her Poetic Memory with us. Check out her list of “favorite albums released in the 1980’s” below, then head down to the Soda Bar on Sunday for what promises to be an incredible show. We’ll see you there. Continue reading…
