Record Store Day 2012 is nearly upon us!  This Saturday April 21, at all the best independent record stores, you can finally pick up Hit & Run Vol.1 – the brand new split single between Rosie Thomas and Sufjan Stevens!!  While you’re there, don’t forget to pick up Rosie’s new album WITH LOVE!

If you just can’t wait until Saturday, or can’t get to a store, you can pick up a copy now right here, or from Rosie on TOUR, which starts next week!   There are limited supplies, so don’t wait!

Speaking of tour, Rosie will be joined on this next round of dates by the wonderful Ivan & Alyosha, and the full-of-wonder Sheila Saputo!

Sheila is still narrowing down choices for her new headshots, so help her decide by liking your favorite shot in each set up.  She is really trying to show off her range for casting directors, so in the new gallery, Sheila goes commando!

You can also take a peak inside Sheila’s diary – Dear Delores,

Pantokrator 2021

Marching Onward

After being together for a quarter of a century, they've been called Illuminati, fundamentalists, and even fascists. Now, with their first new album in seven years, 'Marching Out of Babylon,' they're honed in more than ever, a steadfast and evolved version of themselves. Andrew Voigt digs a little deeper into the Swedish band's roots, uncovers the narratives on the new release, and finds out how a little playground spat brought the band together.
