Mp3 exclusive: Finian McKean

DOWNLOAD: Finian McKean, "Oh, My Heart Is Heavy" (mp3)

Back when he was with the Boston indie-rock group Push Kings, on former Dambuilders’ guitarist Eric Masunaga’s label, Finian McKean went by the name Finn Moore Gerety. Now he’s moved to Brooklyn, where he’s crafting sad, spare, Heartbreaker-grade indie-folk ballads alone at the piano. His recent disc Shades Are Drawn has inspired a blogroll's worth of praise, and he returns to PA's Lounge this Saturday night for a homecoming of sorts. Above: our favorite song from the record, the kind you could imagine Emmylou Harris having a go at. Which is not bad work for an ex-Boston Irishman if you can get it.

[Due to techncal difficulties, this post didn't flip when it was supposed to. We apologize for the inconvenience. Now we're gonna go fix our blog engine with a sledgehammer.]
