New album due in June, three minute song available right now.

Reputable go-to cellist Erik Friedlander found critical success in 2007’s cross country road trip album Block Ice & Propane. So the forthcoming Bonebridge won’t find him drastically changing the formula as far as going-places-and-doing-things-themed albums go. It doesn’t drop until June, but you can download the song “Beaufain Street” right now with Bandcamp’s name-you-price checkout. So you can pay nothing, if you feel like it.


Beaufain Street is apparently in Charleston, South Carolina, where Friedlander and his band wrapped up the recording of Bonebridge. Memphis hotshot Doug Wamble plays guitar; Broken Arm Trio stickman Mike Sarin provides the drums and former Bungler Trevor Dunn does the bass thing.
