I meant to write a little something about it when it happened a couple weeks ago, but it sort of got lost.  Anyway, Cedar Falls-based band The Beat Strings got a mention in Entertainment Weekly’s “download this” sidebar, where readers were invited to download one of their songs from EW’s web site.  I don’t know who XOXO Records has doing promotion, but they probably deserve a raise.

The Beat Strings are really a pretty darn good band.  I’ve seen them a couple times and recall really enjoying them.  Among its members are a couple of good acquaintances/friends of mine: Cody Brown, and Steve Wilson, who I played in No Consensus with some years back, who in more recent years has been playing in another fine outfit A Is Jump, and who I believe to be a really talented cat who deserves much success.

Best wishes to The Beat Strings in their continued journeys through the music business.  The rest of y’all, check them out.
