Locals release Daytrotter session

Charlotte's Junior Astronomers recently embarked on the Favorite Gentlemen Tour with labelmates Harrison Hudson, Death on Two Wheels, and All Get Out. The tour swept through Tremont Music Hall last weekend.

The hardworking Charlotte rock outfit was given the opportunity to record a Daytrotter Session in Nashville earlier this month along with the other bands on the tour. The three-track session is available to Daytrotter subscribers here.

Daytrotter features unique, rare performances from a plethora of artists. While many of these are up and comers or current indie it bands, many are established veterans like Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Iron and Wine, Cowboy Junkies, and Anvil. Members can download tracks as well. Aside from the music my favorite thing about Daytrotter is the incredible watercolor illustrations like the one of Junior Astronomers above (courtesy of the Daytrotter site) that accompany each session.

Keep an ear out for Junior Astronomers' upcoming full-length "Dead Nostalgia."
