When someone puts something on Twitter, there’s a huge chance that it’s of very little interest or completely based in not-factual information. Just like in real life, however, there are people who exist on Twitter that I trust and listen to. Whether it’s Mike from Play B-Sides recommending a record or Hearingade’s own Abby sending me a Bandcamp link, Twitter has proven itself an invaluable resource for discovering music. Recently, my friends over at the Madison-based blog Rock Of The Arts informed the Twitterverse that a rumor is going around about a possible Jonny Corndawg collaboration with one of my favorite bands of the past five years, Dawes. And it was basically the best rumor ever.
So the word is that the Corndawes collab might be recorded as soon as this winter, maybe even in my old ‘hood by team Daytrotter. I don’t know what’s more exciting: The prospect of this album, the prospect of this album being recorded by my homies at DT, or the prospect of this album actually being called “Corndawes.” Just say it with me for a moment: Corndawes. Corndawes. Corndawes. Fun, isn’t it?!
