New Featured Artist: Pela

Photo Credit: Bob Sanderson

Ladies and Gentleman, it is my pleasure to announce that I will be covering Pela exclusively for the next two weeks. You can expect all the usual highlights from A Better Offer. I have tour dates, background info, album reviews, an interview with the band, and hopefully another contest! Check back often during the next two weeks, to find out much more about the spectacular band Pela.

If you are completely new to their music, you can stream their new album "Anytown Grafitti" here. Or you can check out the links to the right as to where to hear more Pela. And about their sound--think good old American rock and roll. These guys make brilliant rock music. Their website describes them as being, "guided by the voices of Bruce Springsteen, Hubert Selby, Husker Du, Raymond Carver, The Replacements, Andre Dubus, The Pixies, Wilco, and the Hold Steady, amongst others, Pela’s brand of pastoral punk has been beautifully described as equal parts desperation and inspiration, which they have masterfully crafted into a signature sound."

You can go ahead and make your day by purchasing their music through any of the usual online retailers...

It's "Anytown Graffiti" not "American Graffiti"

Hey Guys

Thanks for featuring Pela but it's Anytown Graffiti, Not American.

Thanks you two. I made the changes to the post. Man my fingers were faster than my brain this morning when I posted that. Don't you think that album is amazing though. I drove down to my grandfather's funeral tonight (I swear) and my wife and listened to Anytown (not american) Graffiti for the 2 hour drive. The record is amazing. Thanks again for keeping me straight.

And Bob, I also should have given you credit for that outstanding photo. Note the change on the post.
