Local twee-folk-rockers Edith Makes a Paper Chain have just released a lovely 5-song EP called Tunes for Tripping Down Stairs. Luckily for us, they’re offering one track—”Bandylegs”— as a free download (at the bottom of this post) to Big Something readers. As an added bonus, we’ve put together an audio slideshow of the live version of “Bandylegs” that Edith played at Meadow Grass in May. Thanks to Edith and don’t miss your chance to pick up their new record on July 3 at the Pikes Peak Arts Fest downtown and again on July 16 at the Pikes Peak Center’s Studio Bee where they’ll open for Electric Illuminati. A complete list of their tour dates can be found HERE at their myspace page.

  2. Thought you might like this gem I found on the internets. Here’s another version of the Bandy Legs when Sarah played with the Spectres (Velvet Rut) last year at Pike Peak Arts Fest.

  5. Sarah Hope says:

    Hi! It’s Sarah from Edith Makes a Paper chain. Thanks for all the positive feedback. Our CD is available at shows for a suggested donation of 5$. Soon it will also be available on Itunes.
    On July 3rd it will be available at our show in America the Beautiful park. And I’ll tell you a secret… we are going to do a song from Saturday night fever with the Changing Colors. I won’t say which one. The next show after that is studio Bee with the Electric Illuminati. The Cd will be there too.
