This Saturday is Record Store Day and Athens' psychedelic drifters Futurebirds have worked up a new track (and video) for the occasion. Paste has the premiere and the following words from Carter W. King about the song.

"'Painted Tears' is about people complaining of problems they've made for themselves, sometimes by design," says King. "All wrapped up in a classic country breakup song, of course."

Catch Futurebirds on the road right now.

Diarrhea Planet took a moment during a very busy SXSW to visit the Jam in the Van folks and record the "Girls Trilogy," "Orange Girls," "White Girls," and "Platinum Girls," trading vocals and the tastiest licks along the ride. So plug in that T1 or dial up your dial up and get to streaming these over and over and over. And if you just can't get enough--there's no possible way--check out the band's tour dates and find one to attend. Bring your friends. The sun's out. #ShredOn.
