In recent days, Misra co-founder and Mendoza Line frontman Timothy Bracy, alongside wife and Bird of Youth accordionist Elizabeth Nelson, have duly heartened Grandma via word and sound. The dream twosome have been writing for The Washington Post, NPR, Stereogum, etc. and rocking in a new band called The Paranoid Style.
To note: Misra never made that quote in the Hear Ya piece, though it is humorous. Canaanville is a 4-song appendix EP designed to accompany Canary (2011). It’s being sold as a T-Shirt Album here.
Here is a live video Sarah Laubacher took at the band’s recent Cincinnati show at MOTR. Fun!

The Black Swans and Southeast Engine are both featured on the recent release of Sunshine Off the Tracks: A Benefit Compilation for Gems. The comp features Nat Baldwin (Dirty Projectors) and artists from K, Domino, Western Vinyl, and more. It was released by our good friend David Pokrivnak of Wild Kindness Records to help GEMS – a New York-based organization designed to serve females, ages 12-24, who have experienced commercial sexual exploitation and domestic trafficking.
Misra Manager Leo DeLuca wrote the press release for Sunshine, which you can read here:
Sunshine Off the Tracks: A Benefit for GEMS – Press Release:
On March 31, 2012 Wild Kindness Records will release Sunshine Off the Tracks: A Benefit for GEMS. Girls Educational & Mentoring Services (GEMS) is a New York-based organization designed to serve females, ages 12-24, who have experienced commercial sexual exploitation and domestic trafficking. GEMS’ mission is to empower girls and young women to exit the commercial sex industry and develop their full potential. Sunshine Off the Tracks features contributions from a wide array of independent musicians and record labels.
The idea for a benefit compilation was first conceived when members of the Wild Kindness team viewed Very Young Girls – a documentary detailing the atrocities of commercial sexual exploitation and domestic trafficking. Deeply moved by the film, and surrounded by a community of talented artists, the WK team decided to cull a songset to benefit the cause. Envisioning it to be solely released by Wild Kindness, this notion quickly changed when artists and labels across the country began to show great response and an eagerness to contribute.
Sunshine Off the Tracks is one small way to spread the message of GEMS and work toward ending the commercial sex industry. Wild Kindness would like to extend its sincere gratitude to GEMS, the many artists and labels who contributed to the cause, and those who show their support through the purchase of this album. Thank you.
