I've said it before and it still holds true. I usually do not re-feature artists until they have a new release or project in the works. With that said, I have more than a good reason to give you today's re-featured artist, while at the same time, giving you an incredible cover song. This New Order cover has been my profile music for the past couple of days. Now you get the high quality version with no sound tags.
Tomihira is the music of San Francisco, California musician Dean Tomihira. I originally featured his band a few months back and the response was highly favorable, to put it lightly. If you haven't heard any of his other music I suggest you go ASAP (after this song of course) to his MySpace page to hear more. After that visit you will probably want to check out the Tomihira website where you can download quite a bit of his new 2006 release Play Dead. You can also buy it there for $5 USD and get a bonus CD with several additional tracks. When I received mine it came looking like some sort of press pack. Very cool.
Today's featured song is not on that CD, and that's a good segue into the big news. Tomihira was chosen to appear on the latest New Order tribute album as a result of this version of Mr. Disco. You can read about it at New Order Online. If you have any questions send a quick message to Tomihira via his MySpace page. Dean is a great guy and would be happy to hear what you think.
