Nola, a four-piece from my adopted hometown, Raleigh NC, plays dreamy alt-country with enough soul to remind you how country music is supposed to make you feel. After a long while with no updates to their website, it looked like they might have called it quits. Fortunately, I just got a message on Myspace with good news: they just finished their full length that we have been waiting a year and a half for, and so far it sounds like it was worth the wait. Nola had a little help in the studio from their friend Bon Iver, who you may also be familiar with. The best part is that they just put the whole thing up for download on their Virb page.

i bought what i guess to be an early version of that album last year at a show they did. it has the advantage of being hand-made, but the disadvantage of being poorly mixed.

That's cool, it's so fun getting handmade cds. If I get a chance I will upload two records by this band I am really digging right now, Wakey Wakey. Maybe up your alley?
