Bonus MP3: Collin Herring - "Trazodone"

Bonus MP3: Collin Herring - "Trazodone"

Ft. Worth native Collin Herring's newest album, Ocho, may well be the singer/songwriter's best effort. And that's saying a lot considering Herring's past couple of releases, The Other Side of Kindness and Past Life Crashing, were stellar in their own right. If you caught my review of Herring's newest effort in last week's print edition of the Observer, you could tell that I think the guy's a borderline genius.

However, producer Will Johnson gets much of the credit this time around for wrapping Herring's depressive musings into sonically dense patterns that further heighten the tension and emotions of all eight songs on Ocho.

Check it out for yourself as Herring has graciously allowed DC-9 to offer up a free MP3 of this fine new cut "Trazodone," after the jump. If you like what you hear, you can catch Herring live at a release party for Ocho, December 11 at City Tavern.

For those who don't know (I didn't), Trazodone is an anti-depressant used in treating various addictions. And Herring has spent a couple of stints in rehab, so I'm guessing he knows a thing or two about medications.
