[MP3] Two songs from Dave Depper’s “The Ram Project”

Friday, February 10th, 2012

In today’s Bulletin, I have a story on Dave Depper, a former Bendite (Mountain View, class of ’98) who now lives in Portland and makes his living as a musician. He’s played in a ton of bands over the past several years, including the Fruit Bats, Loch Lomond, Norfolk & Western, and tours with Jolie Holland and Mirah.

Anyway, that’s all cool and everything, but the focus of my story is Depper’s somewhat puzzling but super awesome 2011 album “The Ram Project,” which is a note-for-note remake — that Depper recorded in a month of 10- to 12-hour days — of Paul McCartney’s fine and relatively obscure 1971 album “Ram.”

So again, go read the story, and be sure to check out a couple of tracks from the project, including one on Depper’s album and one bonus track, right here:

Dave Depper, “Dear Boy”

Dave Depper, “Oh Woman Oh Why”
