In case you’re not familiar, Neil Lord (Saint Anthony) has a new(ish) project called Niall who has been freaking people out all over Fayetteville for the past few months. Last week, the band released 10-tracks worth of b-sides and rarities as a free download on their Bandcamp page.
The tracks available are a bit of a deviation from what folks who’ve seen Niall live are used to, but as Lord puts it, they represent “lost experiments in an old direction.”
Plus, it’s kind of sweet to peek behind the curtain of the creative process to see what musical moments lead to the sound a band eventually develops.
In other words, free tracks, baby. Get ’em while they’re hot.
