Free Troubadour Dali!









Euclid Records is a unique record store, and has a unique roster of great music on its record label. So naturally, you should expect a unique promotional event, perhaps the first of its kind. On Saturday, Sept. 15, at 2 pm, Troubadour Dali will perform live in the store to celebrate the release of “Drift,” a brand new song on flexi-disc. Troubadour Dali was voted the Best Psychedelic Band in St. Louis in the 2012 Riverfront Times Reader’s Poll, so the decision was made to give back the love with a free song and live appearance. If in the process, the band picks up new fans lured by the charm of a free release on an old-fashioned format, so much the better. Euclid Records, by the way, is located at 601 E. Lockwood in Webster Groves, MO.

Troubadour Dali was the first band signed to and released on the Euclid Records record label. Their two albums, Troubadour Dali and Let’s Make It Right, have been winning fans in St. Louis and across the Midwest, as the band has toured whenever and wherever a gig could be had. The line-up may have changed these past seven years since the band originated, but Troubadour Dali’s sound has remained focused and dynamic behind the songwriting, vocal, and guitar talents of leader Ben Hinn from the beginning. Swirling, kaleidoscopic guitar parts form layers of sonic exploration as the bass and drums provide a hypnotic pulse and Hinn’s vocals paint dreamscapes of wonderment and mystery.

The flexi-disc was a familiar format back in the 60s and 70s, when magazines would frequently include the cheap, extremely thin (and entirely bendable, to its misfortune) vinyl sheets as ways to provide audio commentary or samples of music. The format never cost much to produce, so it was almost always available as a free offering. That’s why it’s the perfect way to promote a young band in this new era of vinyl rejuvenation. As younger music fans are returning to LPs and 45 rpm releases, it only makes sense to release a free sample in a format which can be played on the turntable. For those old-fashioned listeners, the song is also available as a digital download at troubadourdali.com.
