Weed Diamond

Weed Diamond is the recording moniker of Tim Perry, a Denver resident and one of the most talented lo-fi musicians in recent memory. Earlier this month, he garnered a whole lot of affection online and has had a constantly expanding release schedule ever since: cassettes on Mirror Universe and Leftist Nautical Antiques, a 7″ on Transparent, a tune in the Friendship Bracelet Club, and a potential split 7″ on Half Machine Records. Although anyone with the inclination to cover “Every Christian Lion-Hearted Man,” one of my favorite songs and the only one the Bee Gees wrote that I can stomach, immediately gets points in my book, he does one better and improves the song. His original material is at least as good, defying most, if not all, preconceived notions of what lo-fi recordings of the type made by Weed Diamond must be.

Here again is Weed Diamond’s myspace page and here’s Friendship Bracelet’s original coverage, including a download link from Perry to some early demo material.

Farval,
