One of the bands we’re super psyched to see this weekend at the XPoNential Music Festival is Philly’s Strand Of Oaks, fronted by singer, songwriter and guitarist Tim Showalter. Tim’s new album, HEAL, has been getting universal acclaim for its strong narrative, songs that are biographical in nature, and the albums’ stylistic nod to classic rock and postpunk.
Strand of Oaks plays at 3PM on Saturday at Wiggins Park at #XPNFest. Single day tickets and weekend passes are available here.
Below, download a five song sampler via NoiseTrade. It includes the album version of “Shut In,” and four songs recorded for World Cafe, including an unreleased song, “Woke Up To The Light.”
