Philly’s loss is Austin’s gain. Sure, we were sad to see Timothy Showalter transplant his Strand Of Oaks from our hometown to Texas. But since he brought his weird ways with him, we know he’s making the Live Music Capital Of The World an even more creative hotbed, despite everyone being shut in. Showalter’s latest Strand Of Oaks record is the Bandcamp-only Ambient For Change, a five-song instrumental release with all proceeds going to the NAACP Legal Defense And Educational Fund. Another great record and kind gesture from this grown-up kid who gets to live out all his rock ‘n’ roll dreams.
