These are demos that Brendan Benson (From the Raconteurs) put on his Myspace, they are presumably going on his new album which, according to wikipedia, is due out in April. The songs are:

Untitled
Purely Automatic
Lesson Learned
Will It Keep
Nobody Else But You
O My Love
Playdown
New Words of Wisdom
Only In a Dream
Open Your Eyes
Happy Most of the Time
I'll Never Tell
Trouble With You

(Missing the first 5 Songs: Feel Like Taking You Home, Forget, Poised And Ready, Go Nowhere, and Eyes On the Horizon! If anyone knows where or how to get them reply to the post, thanx)

These demos sure paint a great picture of what is going to be an amazing album. Benson is extremely under rated and I highly suggest checkin this out!

Thanks so much. Can you repost 'The Hunter Gets Captured'? You posted 'Ballad of Pretty Baby" twice, once as "Hunter".

There are more being streamed on his website....

I did actually!! :) I also found those songs and its really sounding like a kick ass album! I also picked up some tix to see him live in august! I picked up those songs and I actually split it up into 2 seperate albums: I created a "My familiar, old friend disc 2" with all of the songs that didnt make the album and I also created an Ashley "Monroe EP" so I can post those if u'd like, I also have bout 6 songs from the new album :)

That would be great!! Post what you got. I'm teetering between pre-ordering on Amazon or waiting to see if there are going to be bonus tracks on iTunes.
