Trembling Lips and Pale Fingertips is the newest offering from Doug Burr. It’s alternate versions of songs from his critically acclaimed record O Ye Devastator. It will be released digitally and as a limited ed. 7″. 2 tracks on the vinyl, 4 on the download card.
The tracks are beautifully stripped down, which isolates the actual song and really allows room for Doug’s distinctive vocals and lyrics to be out in front.
If you are unfamiliar w/ Doug Burr, he is a Denton, TX local troubadour . . . hero. After 3 full lengths, including the critically acclaimed O Ye Devastator, Burr has surely carved his path in music. His carefully crafted, absolutely heart-felt songs seem to resonate with all who hear them. On stage, be it Mr. Burr alone or accompanied by a full band, no one leaves unaffected.
Call it folk, roots, americana, twang, folk pop . . . . call it whatever you like, we’ve always had a hard time choosing a name for it.
Recently you may have heard his songs in a handful of indie movies and tv shows too. And while Doug has been on stage less recently, he has busy writing and recording demos of new songs. So we’re offering this new 7″ as a special little perk to satisfy those who are hungry for more Burr now.
