You know how annoying it is when you diligently track new music from your favorite blogs, hear something you get excited about, then can’t find it because the album isn’t even released yet?  Well, I’m sorry but I’m about to do that to you right now.

I just can’t help myself on this one though.  Peasant’s, On the Ground, was a little gem sent to me from Paper Garden Records last month and I cannot stop listening to it.  Unfortunately for you, it’s not available until January 27, 2009. But you can pre-order here now.

Peasant is the musical alter-ego of Damien DeRose from Doylestown, PA.  And you can’t help but think Elliott Smith when you hear his beautiful lyrics and delicate acoustic arrangements float by.  I’m completely obsessed with the song, ‘Birds‘.

Based upon his upcoming engagements to promote the album, it appears I’m not the only one obsessed.  He just recorded studio sessions with Daytrotter (known for helping to launch emerging bands like Of Montreal, Vampire Weekend, Tokyo Police Club, Spoon, and A Place To Bury Strangers), and is scheduled to record live sessions on WOXY and LaundroMatinee as well.  Oh, and let’s not forget his upcoming music placement on the new Showtime series “United States of Tara.”

So go get it already!  Pre-order here.
