Barsuk Acoustic Performances

The teases at Barsuk Records have made available online four songs from last years' singer-songwriter showcase, held for the tenth anniversary of the Coalition of Independent Music Stores. The songs currently available are: Nada Surf's Matthew Caws - "What Is Your Secret", The Long Winters' John Roderick - "Ultimatum", John Vanderslice - "Radiant With Terror", and Jesse Sykes - "Your Side Now". Additional batches of songs, including more by Caws, Roderick, Vanderslice, and Sykes, as well as a couple Death Cab tunes performed by Ben Gibbard, will be "released" on February 27th, March 13th, and March 27th. We're told all the performers used "nothing but a guitar and their voice." There is a picture revealing the presence of at least one bottle of water, but let's try not to consider it a performance-enhancing drug.
