Zac's Tracks o' Wax

Former Observer music editor Zac Crain has leaked the tentative tracklisting for his double-CD Zac Crain for Mayor campaign fundraiser, and it's somewhat of a doozy.

Though the set contains the requisite contributions from Sorta-obvious Barley House drinking buddies such as Olospo, I Love Math and Salim Nourallah (plus everyone's favorite twangy-troubadour-turned-fashion-model Rhett Miller), it also contains fresh fare from young D/FW bands like Dove Hunter, as well as tracks from local indie heroes Centro-matic, Pleasant Grove and Tim DeLaughter. Denton's Fishboy even composed a special tune for the occasion ("The Ballad of Zac Crain"), though we're not sure what business Dentonites have on a Dallas mayoral candidate's benefit album (other than making it a whole lot better, of course).

Tracklist after the jump. And, take note: We'll have a few MP3s from the discs available on Unfair Park in coming days. --Noah Bailey
