Troubadour Dali releases their second album, Let’s Make It Right on August 8, 2011 through Euclid Records. Approved for sharing, stream the MP3s for “Pale Glow” and “Ducks in a Row” at http://label.euclidrecords.com
Formed in 2005 in St. Louis, MO, Troubadour Dali creates lush vocal harmonies paired with hypnotic grooves and jangly fuzz space guitar hooks. Let’s Make It Right shows exciting growth from Troubadour Dali’s 2009 self-titled album, which was mixed by producer Bill Racine (Rogue Wave, Mates of State).
Singer, Ben Hinn elaborates, “For Let’s Make It Right, we initially planned on recording only a couple of songs for a single release. We ended up tracking an album’s worth of material between Sawhorse Studios, with Jason McEntire, and our home studios. Most of the drums, bass, and guitars were recorded live at Sawhorse, with additional overdubs and vocals tracked there, at our apartments, fallout shelters, and other top-secret locations throughout Saint Louis. After our first record, everyone in the band delved further into recording, which has considerably helped with the song writing process of the band, and allows us to better share what we hear in our heads before going into the studio. The result has been more focused and productive sessions.”
Nominated the last three years in a row by the St. Louis Riverfront Times for the best indie band, Troubadour Dali won the award in 2010.
Troubadour Dali has shared the stage with Warpaint, A Place to Bury Strangers, Darker My Love, The Entrance Band, Sleepy Sun, The Whigs and the Strange Boys to name a few. The band will play the 2nd annual LouFest in St. Louis Forest Park on Saturday, August 27, 2011 with The Roots, TV on the Radio, Cat Power, Deerhunter, Surfer Blood, The Hold Steady, Sleepy Sun, Ume and more.
More tour dates will be announced shortly including Chicago, Minneapolis, Urbana/Champaign, Louisville, Nashville, Kansas City, and Columbia, MO.

ABOUT EUCLID RECORDS
Established in 1981 in St. Louis’s Central West End, Euclid Records moved its original store along with their vinyl specialty shop in 2003 to a sprawling 6,000 square feet of new and used CD’s, vinyl, DVD’s, books and accessories. In 2010, Euclid Records opened their New Orleans store location, thriving in a music city slowly rebuilding after Hurricane Katrina.
Euclid Records is proud to announce the Euclid Sessions series. These limited edition 45’s are all recorded right at the current St. Louis and New Orleans Euclid Records locations by luminaries such as Chris Stamey & Peter Holsapple, Steve Wynn, NRBQ’s Terry Adams, and The Bottle Rockets. The songs are handpicked by the performers and limited to only 300 copies with frameable artwork by some of the best artists and graphic designers in the country. Records can be bought individually or by subscription. One dollar for every record pressed will be donated to New Orleans Musicians Relief Fund, an organization that does great work replacing lost and damaged equipment in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.
Euclid Records continues to grow and is now extending their label roster by releasing Sleepy Kitty’s Infinity City CD in July 2011 as well as the second album by another St. Louis band, Troubadour Dali, in August 2011.
