People tend to think and listen along genre lines. They tell themselves “I enjoy band X, so bands like band X will also be up my alley.” Most of the time, that is a sound way to go, and a good stepping off point in this fast food music culture where we consume a streaming track at a time. Then there is a band like Animals As Leaders. Whether you have never been into the band or bands of this ilk, or have been in deep since ‘CAFO’, AAL is a band that takes all comers by surprise and pays off like a strong drink after a particularly rough week at the office.

Acclaimed bassist Tal Wilkenfeld (Jeff Beck, Ryan Adams, Jackson Browne) has launched new single ‘Corner Painter’, from her forthcoming solo singer/songwriter album. The track features Benmont Tench and Blake Mills and you can hear the track at this link. Tal is performing the song on her current run of tour dates as the opening act for The Who. You can see fan filmed video of the track below as well.
Tal has launched a Pledge Music campaign to support the album. Corner Painter is available as a free grat track for those who join, and is also on iTunes too. She already reached 15% of her goal in just a few days. Here is a message from her on the campaign:
Hey Everyone in internet land!
Tal Wilkenfeld here. Some of you may know me as a bassist, but lately, my focus has been singing and songwriting.
I’ve been in the studio for several years, on and off between sessions and touring with other artists, working on my album with some pretty amazing musicians (Benmont Tench, Blake Mills, Sonya Kitchell, Jeremy Stacey, Paul Stacey and Zac Rae.) The tracks are done and I can’t wait for you guys to hear it! Now I’m looking to mix and master it, and hopefully, if all goes according to plan, release it in the summer.
I would love for you guys to support this process and pre-order my album. Along with this new music, you can also grab exclusive opportunities such as a limited amount of skype bass lessons, signed instruments, handwritten lyric sheets… even a concert in your living room!
Thank you for your support, and for pledging for my album!
