Besides his involvement in the alt-country combo Bluetortillas, local singer/songwriter Douglas Woodlane has found time to record a couple of solo efforts, the most recent being Douglas Woodlane and the Thieves. The very Neil Youngish opening cut is "Broken Blue" and Woodlane was kind enough to send this over as a free MP3 for the readers of DC9. Check it out after the jump.

Douglas Woodlane -- "Broken Blue"

That's a nice slab of country-ish rock, I say. The rest of the album follows suit, as Woodlane channels all sorts of cool influences (Son Volt, Gram Parsons) into his dense and detailed musical diatribes.

Hailing out of the mid-cities, Woodlane is a 38-year-old jack-of-all-trades who needs to get himself a good agent and start taking this shit seriously.

Catch Bluetortillas at Muddy Waters on July 25 and look for a solo appearance real soon.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
