Portland combo Blue Skies for Black Hearts’ album Embracing the Modern Age arrived this
past spring and the band is about to leave on tour to the Midwest and East
Coast. Meanwhile, they’ve also recorded an ace cover of Teenage Fanclub’s “The
Concept” that they’re offering up as a free download:



Born as an outlet for producer turned songwriter/lead singer
Pat Kearns, Blue Skies For Black Hearts is made up of a group of crack Portland music veterans,
and the album also has an accompanying short sci-fi film.  Shot all
over the Northwest, directed by Jon Griffith and written by bassist
Kelly Simmons who describes the film as “sort of in the vein of Help, Kiss Meets the Phantom of the
and Purple Rain all packed
into a Monkees episode. Blue Skies saves the future of rock n roll from
conspiring evil professors, robots and druids, all with an underlying theme
of evolution, monkeys, robots and swamp creatures.”  


Worth noting: he band is currently running a
pay-what-you-want campaign here (proceeds go
to the Michael J Fox Foundation).
