A pre-Halloween bash with Omaha’s DIGITAL LEATHER, Huntsville, Alabama’s THOMAS FUNCTION and YUSSUF JERUSALEM, from France. Digital Leather have releases on Tic Tac Totally, Goner Records and their newest album, Warm Brother, will come out this Fall via Fat Possum. Also on Fat Possum is Thomas Function, who plays soulful rock reminiscent of indie British acts Supergrass and Hefner. Formerly on Alive Records, their newest album, In the Valley of the Sickness comes out October 13th. Yussuf Jerusalem is a unique French act that has the ability to shift between somber garage ballads and vicious black metal jams; currently on Florida’s Dying.  All three acts are scheduled to play VICE Scion Garage Festival in Portland later this year and Thomas Function and Yussuf Jerusalem are headed to Goner Fest 6 in September.

Here are two previously posted mp3s by YUSSUF JERUSALEM “With You in Mind” and “We Ain’t Coming Back“, both from A Heart Full of Sorrow. Thomas Function’s “Belly of the Beast” via Fat Possum.
